Sister Wives star Gwendlyn Brown claimed that Utah police pushed her family out of the state in 2011 due to their polygamous lifestyle, and had threatened to arrest her father, Kody Brown. The family ultimately moved to Las Vegas, which Gwendlyn called a “weird” choice due to the city’s association with sin. Gwendlyn also criticized the Mormon community in Las Vegas, calling them “scary” and “entitled.”

Sister Wives star Gwendlyn Brown has claimed that her family was pushed out of Utah by the police, who also threatened to arrest her father, Kody Brown, for his polygamous lifestyle, before they moved to Nevada in 2011. According to Gwendlyn, law enforcement officers would come to their door and tell them to leave the state. She also said that Utah seemed “really weird” to her because of what the state allegedly did to force her family out.
Kody Brown, who shares six children with ex-wife Christine Brown, relocated his entire family to Las Vegas in 2011. Gwendlyn called this decision “such a weird choice” for a fundamentalist Mormon family, given that Las Vegas is known as “Sin City.” She also claimed that the Mormon community in Las Vegas is “evil” and “scary,” and that she felt like she wasn’t Mormon enough for them.
Kody and his wives and children then moved to Arizona in 2018, where they bought multiple plots of land in Flagstaff. However, things soon started to unravel, with Christine and Janelle Brown both announcing their splits from Kody. Janelle, who shares six children with Kody, confirmed in December 2022 that they were no longer together. Kody’s first wife, Meri Brown, also announced in January that they had parted ways after legally divorcing in 2014 so that Kody could marry Robyn Brown and adopt her three children from a past marriage.
Throughout all these changes, Kody has remained in a relationship with Robyn, and the couple share two children together. Us Weekly has reached out to Kody for comment on Gwendlyn’s allegations about the police in Utah.
