‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Bear Brown Denies Allegations of Drug Use Made By His Pregnant Ex-Fiancé Raiven Adams; Hires Himself a Lawyer

Drug free? Maybe. Drama free? Definitely not.

Alaskan Bush People star Bear Brown has taken to social media to deny the drug use accusations made recently by his pregnant ex-fiancé, Raiven Adams. 

Bear’s Instagram post appeared to address the particular claims Raiven made in court documents earlier this month that Bear had admitted to her that he used cocaine and that he punished Raiven by “verbally abusing” or threatening to kick her out when she would express concern over Bear’s drug use. 

“There’s something I would like to say,” Bear posted on Instagram on Monday, along with a selfie. “I DON’T DO DRUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The day before he posted that he was “brokenhearted,” and a fan asked him directly if he does cocaine in the comment section of the Instagram post.

“No!” Bear responded. “I don’t do drugs!!!”

While Bear took an opportunity to shoot down the rumors of his drug use, his posts noticeably left out any mention of the looming abuse allegations he’s facing. As The Ashley told you earlier this month, Raiven filed for a domestic violence restraining order against Bear; the petition for the short-term protective order was granted and the court date for the long-term protective order is set for February 27. 

The Ashley can confirm that, as of today, Bear has hired an attorney to represent him in the case, and has filed to continue the long-term protective order hearing scheduled to be held tomorrow. At press time, Raiven does not appear to have retained a lawyer and the judge had not granted or denied the request to continue the scheduled hearing.

In court documents obtained by The Blast, Raiven claimed Bear has abused her verbally, intimidated her with guns and threatened to withhold money and food from her. She also wrote that the Discovery Channel star also used his fame as leverage to keep her in line. 

“While dating I would bring up his erratic behavior (yelling, slamming things, preventing me from leaving rooms),” the documents state. “I was told multiple times if I didn’t follow what he wanted me to do/say/act he would have Discovery [Channel] bury me [with] lawsuits if I spoke about his behavior.” 

Bear and erratic behavior?! Never!

Raiven claims Bear also threatened to take their baby away from her once the baby was born if she left, and that he has used propane to scare her on multiple occasions. 

“I fell asleep on two occasions [shortly] before separating permanently,” she claims. “Both times I woke up to propane left on in our trailer. When I expressed concerns he laughed as if it was a joke.” 

Those who have followed the couple’s journey may recall that they began dating last year and went on to surprise fans with their engagement announcement in August 2019.

Just two weeks later, the couple called off their engagement and the following day, they revealed Raiven was pregnant with Bear’s baby. 

Not long after the couple’s pregnancy announcement, Raiven’s mother, Kassy Adams, slammed Bear and the rest of the Brown family for allegely “treating Raiven like trash.” Despite the family drama, the couple rekindled their relationship in September, only to break up again in November.

    Bear is being had. This girl wants fame and fortune and that’s all. Don’t trust her and her mom well she will always believe her child. Bear doing drugs is so far out there I believe him. He’s not my favorite but she is out to get what she can.

  3. Tbh, out of everyone from this family, I would actually believe Bear is the erratic one. Gabe and Noah are both married (and have kids now) and we hear nothing of this sorts happening in their household.

  4. These 2 aren’t even married and weren’t together long at all! How is he responsible for feeding her and giving her money? Get a job! Yes, he’s responsible for child support, once the child’s born, but it sounds like she just wants to sit on her ass while pregnant and have him pay for everything. It doesn’t always work that way, sweetie.

    1. More like, preventing her from eating. Withholding food from her. Taking food from her. Refusing to allow her access to the food in the house.

      You’d be amazed at the control a person can have over another. It’s not about her being lazy and not wanting to work, it’s about the control he had over her.

      You’ve obviously never been in that kind of relationship. Consider yourself lucky.

      1. The first thing an abuser will do is try to make you dependent on them. It could be by talking you into moving away from your job/family, convincing you to be a housewife/stay-at-home-mom, or even by preventing you from leaving the house to work. Every time I tried to get a job, my ex-husband would either come up with a reason that it wouldn’t work out, tell me I’d be a horrible mother if I wasn’t with the kids all day, refuse to watch the kids, or even run off in the truck so I couldn’t make it to interviews.

        There’s no telling what this crazy ass dude was doing behind closed doors.
