As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the 55-year-old father of four went public with girlfriend Caryn Chandler, the family's longtime farm manager, in a sweet post over the weekend.
While many followers congratulated Matt, others slammed him for dating someone who was once friends with his 52-year-old ex-wife, Amy, and their grown children. (Chandler has worked with the family since at least 2011, while Matt and Amy separated in 2014 after nearly 30 years of marriage.)
"Glad Amy had enough respect for Matt and didn't date any of the help…Matt has turned into a real slimeball!" one fan commented.
"This is his farm manager, who has been on the show for years. Now we see why he pushed for divorce at the end! He already had someone! Moving on is fine, but this is tacky and obvious," another fumed.
According to a Pop Dust reality recap from 2013, Chandler even helped Amy and Matt work through their issues on the family TV show during the last days of their marriage.
"Can't you two get along?" she allegedly shouted after the couple began arguing.
However, there is no indication that Matt and Caryn dated before his divorce from Amy was finalized in April 2016.
Meanwhile, Amy seems smitten in her own new relationship with Portland-based real estate broker Chris Marek, 54.
"It's been fun!" Chris recently told Radar. "Amy and I are getting along great."
