Meri Brown's Boyfriend: Full Name, Questionable Past REVEALED!


In case you haven't heard, Meri Brown has a boyfriend.

The Sister Wives star took Instagram followers by surprise this week when she paid tribute to her 53rd birthday by announcing that she was now dating a man named Amos.

“Meet Amos, the cute guy I've been dating since October!” Brown enthusiastically wrote as the caption for a carousel of photos of her and her lover.

“He's not 6ft 6in or a pilot, but he loves Christmas almost as much as I do and we laugh a lot together, which are important elements in a relationship!” Meri added.

As TLC viewers celebrate Meri's romantic union, which came several months after she and Kody Brown ended their marriage, at least one website has done some digging.

In Touch Weekly reports that Meri's boyfriend's name is Amos Andrews..

It filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on May 8, 2000 in Phoenix, Arizona.

According to records seen by this tabloid, Amos's wife at the time, Shannon Marie Andrews, was listed as a co-petitioner in the filing.

The case was closed on September 26 of that year… with Amos, we assume, selling his property to pay creditors in order to satisfy the requirements of a bankruptcy filing.

This filing was made more than two decades ago and we have no further details about Andrews' current financial situation.

On a personal level in the meantime?

In Touch also learned that Amos has been married FOUR times.

This does not necessarily equate to a red flag. This doesn't necessarily mean that Amos has done anything wrong or that he can't be a great partner for Meri. It seems worth pointing out right now.

Amos first married a woman named Tracey Ann Smith Lang; The spouses divorced in 1998.

He then married Shannon Marie Martin, although their relationship ended in 2000.

The potential new reality star's third marriage was to Christine Andrews, whom he divorced in 2004.

And finally, Amos followed this separation by exchanging vows with Jennifer Carol Andrews, marrying her in 2016 and divorcing in 2021.

Meri, of course, married Kody in 1994.

The two share a son together and they She divorced in 2014 so Kody could make Robyn Brown his legal wife so he could adopt her children from a previous marriage.

There was extreme tension between Meri and Kody since this official breakup, which culminated in their firing in January 2023.

“Today I regain my power,” Meri wrote then.

“There is much more to tell about this story and I assure you that my truth will be told. But for now, know that there is peace in my heart and I have no animosity toward Kody.”

Fast forward to basically a year since she became single and Meri added the following when confirming her romance with Amos Andrews:

“As I considered when and how I wanted to share this fun news and share it with the world (jk, I don't really share it, I keep it to myself), I knew I wanted to celebrate my birthday in a special way and let you celebrate this with me!

“I feel like I'm starting this year off to a great start and I can't wait to share more with you as the year progresses.”
