‘Sister Wives’ Star Paedon Brown Admits to Slapping His Estranged Sister Gwendlyn: “She’s Scared of Me”

The Sister Wives slap heard round the internet…

The dysfunction among the Brown family of TLC’s Sister Wives goes beyond Kody and his wives. In a shocking TikTok Live, Kody’s son, Paedon, recently admitted to getting physically violent with his younger sister, Gwendlyn, an incident he says caused their relationship to be even more strained due to Gwen being afraid of him.

In the live video, Paedon stated that he “messed up” years ago and hit his sister. (Paedon, 23, and Gwen, 20, are two of the six children Kody and his now-ex-wife Christine share.) 

“Fortunately those six kids are the only thing I still share with Kody… “

While Paedon didn’t specifically state when he slapped Gwen, it does not appear to be an incident that took place when they were little kids, but rather when they were older and arguing.

“I hit Gwen,” Paedon said in the clip. “I slapped Gwen after some words were exchanged and I took it too far and I slapped her and she thinks that I might do it again and she’s scared of me.” 

Paedon added it was “okay” that his sister was afraid of him due to the incident, noting he’s “not gonna argue with her.” Furthermore, Paedon claims their mother Christine is “very aware” of the incident and is attempting to help Gwen navigate her feelings about what happened. 

Christine, trying to figure out what’s wrong with the men in her life.

“Mom knows I would never [hurt Gwen],” he added. “I know I would never, but it hurts me. It hurts me knowing that my sister thinks I want to hurt her. I don’t. I don’t want to hurt my sister, but she thinks I do.” 

While Paedon said he doesn’t wish to hurt his sister, he plans to “wait until she feels okay to talk to me to talk to her.” 

“How does the Friday after never sound?”

“I want her to feel safe and it’s very important that my sister feel safe around me,” he said. 

Paedon didn’t reveal what had caused the argument that led to him slapping Gwen, though the siblings did get into a public feud on social media back in 2020 which was brought to light after Gwen, who is bisexual, revealed on Twitter that she had been feuding with certain siblings in her family.  

“That moment when you find out your siblings gossip about how they don’t think your sexuality is real or possible #ThisIsSomethingWeCanAllRelateToDefinitely,” she tweeted in 2020. 

After seeing Gwen’s tweet, fans began to speculate which of the Brown siblings she was referring to, with many suggesting Paedon. One fan in particular claimed to have received messages from Paedon stating “that black lives don’t matter,”– a response that Gwen not only “liked,” but told the fan she was “not surprised” and even asked for screenshots, which the fan provided. 

In a since-deleted tweet, Gwen complimented the individual for how they handled the conversation with her brother. 

“Talking with racists is painful and he sounded like an idiot,” she wrote. “Good job.” 

A fan went on to tell Paedon about his sister’s remarks on Instagram, to which he replied, “Thanks. I will still protect her until my dying day.” 

It appears that the feud between Paedon and Gwen has been going on for years. During a 2015 episode of ‘Sister Wives,’ Christine specifically said that Gwen wasn’t allowed to stay alone in the house with Paedon. (At the time, Paedon would have been around 17, while Gwen was about 13.) 

It was not explained at the time why Gwen couldn’t stay home alone with Paedon…

“I have disconnections with siblings all over the place,” Paedon admitted in an interview with Us Weekly last month. 

Anyway, in the same TikTok Live, Paedon went on to say that he would likely not be invited to his sister Mariah‘s upcoming wedding. (Mariah came out publicly as gay years ago and is set to wed her longtime partner Audrey Kriss. Both Audrey and Mariah have publicly feuded with Paedon in the past.) 

In his Us Weekly interview, Paedon revealed that he also doesn’t get along well with his younger sister Brianna (whose mom is Kody’s fourth wife Robyn), or his sister Savannah (who is the daughter of Kody and his second wife Janelle.)

  1. Based on this article it seems like Paedon is not a nice guy. He admits to hitting Gwen…so bad she is afraid of him and will not be around him. The article goes on to say Paedon also doesn’t get along with Brianna and Savannah. Sounds like he has a problem with women. Maybe that should be explored with a professional. If he would physically abuse his sisters, what would he do with women in general?

  2. It seems that Paedon really needs to see a therapist that can help him through his anger problems. It is not acceptable or normal for anyone to slap someone else. Trying to get Gwendolyn to not be afraid of him is a cop out if Christine is not working with Pardon to get counseling. He is Kody’s son and Kody is full of anger most of the time. I wish the best for Paedon to become more accepting of his sister’s identities. It is their life and I would hope he would be supportive.

  3. “Mom knows I’d never hurt Gwen. Yet you slapped her. And evidently this did not happen when you were children. Bullying Robyn’s kids, slapping your, sister, put down shirts to “family members.”

  4. Good for Gwen for setting boundaries. Just because you share DNA with someone doesn’t mean they have a right to be in your life. It’s a privilege. Kody half ass parented his children and it shows. If he put as much effort into his own kids as he does Robyn’s kids maybe they would be different.
    With that being said ;

    Robyn’s kids and Mariah are insufferable. They annoy the heck out of me.

  5. Oh, so he admits he’s a woman beater. Good luck to any woman that marries that POS he’ll probably hit her too.

  6. Seems ot me the two sisters he has the most issue with are the ones who are Gay. Maybe he shoudl get therapy.

  7. Obviously hitting is wrong and he shouldn’t hit anyone, a family member or a woman….
    But the fact that all the children don’t get along isn’t surprising. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the relationships never heal, from what I’ve seen all the kids are very rude and stubborn with terrible attitudes.

  8. Paedon: “I don’t want to hurt my sister. It hurts me to think that she thinks I would hurt her.”
    Also Paedon: *literally hurts sister by slapping her*

    Classic gaslighting and psychopath vibes. Smh.

    1. Came here to say the same thing. It’s quite obvious that there is more going on here that we don’t know about, considering he wasn’t allowed to even be alone with his sister..

    2. Exactly this. He says he wants her to feel safe but never actually apologizes. He said he “messed up and slapped her” but doesn’t mention the rest of the situation that led to it which shows he really doesn’t accept responsibility for any of it. Gwen made the right choice by staying away from him.

    1. Nobody deserves to be physically assaulted. WTF is wrong with you? I swear you hop on here just to troll.

    2. Hopefully no one ever puts their hands on you. Especially not a man. But … if they ever do, you will deserve it. Just for that ignorant ass comment you posted. Stay off the internet dumbass.

  9. Paedon, Gabe, and Garrison are all uneducated, small-minded, blowhards. Racist, homophobic, et al.
    People were all Team Gabe & Garrison b/c they stood up against Kody, and people hate Kody & Robyn. But if you’ve watched for years and pay attention to the regular every day conversations among the family, you’ll see how they treat people, especially the women. Gabe has been an ass to his own mom Janelle too many times to count. They’re little brats trying to act all big and tough.
    I can’t stand Mariah, but good for her if she doesn’t invite them to her wedding. You should only be surrounded by people who support your marriage on that day.

    1. I could be wrong but I don’t recall any of them saying racist or homophobic language. Gabe and Garrison actually seem pretty level headed to me.

  10. Pardon sounds like a complete narcissist like his father. “Oh yeah, I smacked her, but it hurts MY heart that she’s afraid of me”.
    He needs to just go away already, I’m tired of hearing his lips flap

    1. No, she is. She’s one of those brainwashed clueless Covidians. Too bad he couldn’t smack some sense into her.

  11. Umm??? “Mom knows I would never [hurt Gwen],” he added. “I know I would never, but it hurts me.” So you didn’t “hurt” her when you slapped her? You would “never” hurt her but you admit you did slap her. I’d say that’s hurting her both physically and emotionally. Ass. This guy actually sounds much worse than his father. Clearly potential to do much more harm based on his thoughts shared on social media – not to mention past actions.

  12. It’s sad that politics can tear family members apart. Family is more important than politics. The best thing to do is just agree to disagree and avoid political discussions with each other.

    1. It’s privilege to think politics doesn’t directly affect your life. In the case of Mariah and Gwen, one political party is literally trying to erase their existence by passing discriminatory policies. Their lives are worth more than family
