In the last few weeks, several of the older Brown children, including Paedon Brown, have spoken out about alleged abuse at the hands of Meri Brown, Kody Brown's first wife.

One of those claims alleged that they witnessed Meri physically abusing Mykelti Brown, the daughter of Christine and Kody Brown.

“[Meri] was scary as a kid but she never attacked me and I only saw her violent once. That was all a long time ago," Gwendlyn said on her YouTube page while confirming Paedon's story. “Meri had moments where she was rude and scary but I don’t remember her getting physical with anyone except for Mykelti and that was only once. I believe that everyone deserves a second chance … I don’t know anything about saving anyone’s life, honestly. She was met with more dislike than anything.”

Mykelti has since taken to social media to give her side of the story.

“I’m speaking on my own personal experiences and opinion on Meri Brown. I don’t want to discount my siblings’ experiences with her,” Mykelti said in a clip shared via Patreon and since circulated across social media. “I don’t remember Meri ever being physically abusive to me. She was very emotionally and verbally abusive to all of us when we were younger.”

She also said that the abuse stopped when the siblings were old enough to "fight back."

“I honestly think I got the brunt of it,” she said. “My siblings have told me multiple times that they think that I did receive the worst that she gave. However, I think that we were all affected by her.”

Mykelti recently gave birth to twins, the second and third child with her husband Tony, of which she says Meri will have no part.

“She’s not, nor will she ever be, part of my life nor my husband’s or my kids’ lives because of the trauma I experienced as a child growing up. I don’t think she’s a terrible person, but I don’t think she’s necessarily a nice person.”
