MATT Roloff has faced backlash for hanging out with his ex-wife Amy’s new husband Chris on the family farm.
The Little People Big World star recently began the construction of a new house on his $4million Oregon farm.

Now Matt, 61, has taken a break from the grueling work to celebrate the new addition with a “guy’s night” at a cabin on the property.
The reality star snapped an Instagram photo of the small wooden structure where he would be spending a cozy night amid his build.
The little abode was made with logs, had two white rocking chairs out on the front porch, and a barrel in the middle to be used as a table.
Stacks of wooden logs lay on the right side, and at the top were antlers and a sign reading: “Grandpa’s cabin.”
Matt captioned his post: “A little break from the build… Guys night at the cabin… Ty, Bill, Chris and me hanging out as warm as toast inside while the rain/snow poured down outside. The little wood stove got so warm we had to keep the door open for awhile.”
But fans were appalled to see that the Roloff patriarch had included his ex-wife Amy’s new husband Chris for his “guy’s night” at the farm.
“I bet Amy didn’t like it that much!” one admitted.
But Matt was quick to clap back in reply, writing: “No? Why not? It was her that I called to set it up. Amy’s a pretty secure and mature woman.”
“Actually it is disrespectful to Amy,” a second slammed, prompting the TLC star to respond: “Ah…you think so? That’s pretty bold.”
“I can tell it bothers Amy but she is just a good sport. So disrespectful to her,” a third claimed.
“So weird you hang out with chris,” a fourth noted.
“I find it very strange that chris wants to be friends after everything that went on,” a fifth agreed.
Matt’s bonding time with Chris came as he broke ground on his new home construction for the $4million family farm.
The father of four updated fans with a progress photo of his brand-new farmhouse on Friday.
The reality star took to his Instagram feed to share a snap of stakes covering the land where the farmhouse will be built.
In the background sat the small wooden cabin, construction materials, and tree-covered mountains loomed in the distance.
Matt captioned his post: “After 5 years of planning… that first bit of rebar gets put down… it’s going to go up fast from here… hopefully.”
As the family patriarch begins construction on his long-awaited new home, he has praised his son Jacob, 26, for helping in the process.
In a previous Instagram post, the TLC star snapped his son hard at work building the family’s new home.
Wearing a pair of work overalls covered in dirt, Jacob kept his head down as he walked in front of a wood chopper.
“The Mill man at work… helping his Dad cut wood for the new house,” Matt captioned the photo.
Meanwhile, fans believe that Matt dropped a major hint he plans to propose to his girlfriend of six years, Caryn Chandler with his posts.
However, a fan changed the subject in the comments section.
“Where’s the big diamond ring?” the person boldly asked.
Matt replied: “Well, well. You just have to wait and see what happens.”
Other fans commented on Matt’s response which alluded to tying the knot with Caryn.
“Get that prenup, buddy,” one user harshly said.
Another encouraged: “You’re a creative guy. Can’t wait to see your proposal!”
Yet a third supported: “They make each other happy and that’s all that matters.”
Matt and Amy Roloff were married for almost 30 years before they called it quits in 2016.
Amy, 60, tied the knot with her new man Chris Marek in 2021.
