Janelle Brown: All You Need To Know
When was Janelle Brown born?
Janelle Brown was born into the Schriever family on May 6, 1969. Jannel Brown’s father Robert Schriever passed away just three years after her birth and her mother Sheryl Usher married Merlin Fryer at some point of time during Janelle Brown’s childhood. There isn’t a lot of information about Janelle Brown’s educational background except for the fact that she attended Bountiful High School.
In quite a strange turn of events, Janelle Brown’s mother Sheryl Usher ended up marrying Winn Brown, the father of Janelle Brown’s future husband Kody Brown. This made Winn Brown her step father and father in law. In a more amusing manner, it made Kody Brown her husband and her step-brother. Janelle Brown’s mother passed away in 2020.
Which religion does Janelle Brown follow?
Janelle Brown is a member of a long line of Mormons. However, her Mormon family never practiced polygamy and Janelle Brown wasn’t even aware of polygamy until she met Kody Brown and Meri Barber.
Who was Janelle Brown’s first husband?
Janelle Brown entered the marriage world by marrying Adam Barber in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1988. Unfortunately, the couple was divorced after just two years of marriage. Co-incidentally, Janelle Brown’s first husband Adam Barber had a sister named Meri Brown, who would go on to become one of Kody Brown’s sister wives along with Janelle Brown.
When did Janelle Brown marry Kody Brown?
Janelle Brown met Kody Brown through her first husband’s sister Meri Brown. Eventually, they both grew very close to each other and got “spiritually married” on January 20, 1993. After almost 30 years of marriage, the couple divorced in December 2022.
How many children does Janelle Brown have?
Janelle Brown had four sons Gabriel, Logan Taylor, Robert Garrison, and Hunter Elias; and two daughters Madison Rose and Savanah during her marriage with Kody Brown.
Janelle Brown’s daughter Madison Rose got married in 2016 to Caleb Brush. This wedding blessed Janelle Brown with two granddaughters Evangelynn Kodi and Josephine Lee, and a grandson Axel James. None of Janelle Brown’s other children have children of their own and Logan Taylor is the only other child to even be married (tied the knot to Michelle Petty on October 22nd, 2022).
How many sister wives does Janelle Brown have?
While Kody Brown and Janelle Brown were “spiritually married” for almost 30 years, she wasn’t the only woman he was “married to”. Kody Brown’s first legal wife was Meri Barber, sister of Janelle Brown’s first husband. Meri Barber and Kody Brown tied the legal knot on April 21, 1990. They legally divorced in 2014 but stayed spiritually married till 2023, when they ended their relationship officially.
Kody Brown, who is clearly a “spiritual marriage” enthusiast, also married (spiritually) Christine Allred in 1994. The “spiritual” marriage ended in 2021. Kody Brown has six children and three grandchildren with Christine as well. Upon her divorce from Kody Brown, Christine said: “After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have separated and I have made the difficult decision to move on. We will continue to be a strong presence in everyone’s life as we raise our beautiful children and support our wonderful family. At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate this stage within our family.”
Yet another one of Kody Brown’s “spiritual marriages” was with Robyn Sullivan in 2010. The couple legalized their marriage in 2014 so that Kody Brown could adopt all her kids. Robyn happens to be the only remaining wife of Kody Brown from the heights of his polygamous days.
Somehow, Janelle Brown stayed together with Kody Brown and the sister wives for three decades. After splitting up with all his “sister wives”, Kody Brown has insisted that he doesn’t really keen on polygamy anymore.
