'Little People'

Big Split

We've Separated

3/12/2014 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0312_amy-and-matt-roloff_getty"Little People, Big World" couple Matt and Amy Roloff can't stand living together anymore -- they've just announced they're separating after 26 years of marriage.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Matt and Amy have been living separately since the holidays -- Amy currently resides in the family's main house in Oregon ... Matt lives in the guest house.

We're told neither Amy nor Matt is currently pursuing other relationships -- they're just testing the waters living alone ... for now anyway. So far, divorce isn't on the table.

Matt has had a history of drinking problems -- such as his 2007 DUI -- but we're told alcohol was NOT an issue in the split.

The Roloffs -- who have 4 children -- released a statement, saying, "Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation."

She was always a B!TCH - she disrespected him, encouraged her little person son to disrespect him, she always sided with and enabled her little person son like he was the sh!t, she treated that guy like crap. no wonder he drank. He may not have been perfect, but you could tell he loved his family and they treated him like he was a joke, always making fun of him, insulting him, disrespecting him, and it all started with how the kids saw their mother treat him. Saw this coming from a mile away years ago when the series was in it's first seasons... surprised it took so long. But I suppose they stayed together for the show.

Why do these so called stars need to let the World know about their lives? Can't they divorce without informing the World? What exactly do they get for announcing their break ups? SMH...oh never mind they want to stay "relevant".

Maybe they just have "short" tempers and need a "little" time apart. Their shows' ratings aren't at the "height" they used to be.

Amy is a a nagging, whiny old hag who would like to live as a hoarder if she could. Matt might not be the easiest but he sure is motivated and is a hard worker who also likes a clean house. She is just a slob who likes to complain alot. Matt has more energy than my hubby does and he doesn't have the challenges Matt does..she should appreciate him.
