Alaskan Bush People matriarch Ami Brown has reconciled her relationship with troubled son Matt.
This Mother’s Day, Matt, 36, reached out to Ami, 55, by posting a heartfelt video on social media. And though the two had been estranged from some time, a Brown family insider told RadarOnline.com that the clip was “exactly what Ami was hoping for!”
“After Matt made the video, his family made sure that she was able to see it and she did. In fact, she broke down crying when she saw her son’s lovely message,” the source said.
According to the insider, Ami — who recently overcame a horrific cancer battle — “reached out to Matt to make sure that he is okay and was able to speak to him.”
“He told her that he has no plans to return back home anytime soon, but that he loves her very much,” the source said.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Matt ditched the family’s Washington home late last year following his second stint in rehab.
After finding out that Matt was wandering the desert outside of Palm Springs, California, dad Billy told him that he would allow him back on the family’s hit TV show in one condition: that he got help.
Taking his father’s advice, Matt entered treatment for his third time at Betsy Ford Clinic in Palm Desert. But after he was released, Billy changed his mind — forcing Matt to quit Alaskan Bush People!
Since then, Matt has been living with his girlfriend outside of Los Angeles.
“It is such a tense situation because Ami must obey Billy and Billy is not on speaking terms with Matt,” the insider told RadarOnline.com. “Billy isn’t going to let his wife and mother of his kids suffer just because of his own feud with his son.”
