Matt Roloff is very sorry, ladies.
He has some news to break that you may find to be unfortunate.
And that is this: The Little People, Big World star is not single and, therefore, is not ready to mingle.
Fans across the Internet have been wondering about Roloff’s relationship status for several days now, ever since he news broke that Caryn Chandler is no longer employed by Roloff Farms.
For those unaware, Caryn is Matt’s girlfriend.
She has been for about a year now and she met Matt because she managed his property and his business for many years before that.
(This is also why there’s constant tension between Caryn and Amy Roloff; the two were friends prior to her divorce from Matt and Caryn’s subsequent romance with him.)
HOWEVER, multiple outlets reported last week that Chander is no longer employed by Matt, leading to one of two possibilities:
- She has been fired because she and Matt have broken up and it would be too weird if they kept working together.
- They are engaged, or about to be engaged, and felt a need to wholly separate their work from their personal lives.
So that’s the background at work here.
It should help readers understand Matt’s response to a comment on Facebook yesterday.
“Where’s Caryn? Did you guys break up?” a follower asked in response to a photo of Matt on vacation in Mexico, seemingly by himself.
“We did not break up,” Roloff said in response to the speculation.
So… there you go, we guess?
We can return to the opposite kind of speculation now? The kind that involves wondering whether or not Matt and Caryn are engaged?
We’re happy to wonder about that more exciting possibility instead, but we can’t help thinking that Matt’s reply was lacking in… something, right?
He didn’t make some joke about these break-up rumors nor did he say anything nice about Chandler and their relationship.
He just gave the most straightforward answer possible, which still makes us think something is off here. Perhaps the pair are just on a break?
Maybe Caryn just needs space?
We’re not judging at all. We’re just curious.
On a recent episode of Little People, Big World, Caryn admitted that she would be willing to leave the farm the moment her boyfriend’s ex-wife told her to do so.
She meant this out of respect for Amy, not out of any kind of bitterness.
She very much understands how awkward everything is here.
“I don’t want to invade anyone’s space, and the moment Amy doesn’t want me coming around anymore, I won’t,” Chandler told the cameras.
Along those lines, as documented below, Matt has been considering a major change in his life.
