Polygamist patriarch Kody Brown has broken his silence over the decision he made to divorce his first wife and marry his younger fourth wife after RadarOnline.com broke the news about their controversial situation.
The Sister Wives star was legally wed to Meri and only spiritually married to Christine, Janelle and Robyn, but RadarOnline.com revealed the bombshell news that he recently divorced Meri and is now married to Robyn.
"We have chosen to legally restructure our family," the Browns said in a statement on Wednesday, their first comment about their family choice since RadarOnline.com uncovered their unconventional divorce and remarriage.
"We made this decision together as a family. We are grateful to our family, friends and fans for all their love and support."
The Browns, who have fought to have polygamous marriages declared legal in their home state of Utah, now reside in Nevada, where the divorce and remarriage occurred.
