The former couple has a one-year-old son named River. Raiven recently revealed her belief that they are both failing at providing a happy home for their son and it is in his best interests that his parents are separated.
Later, Matt shared his video of digging a grave and burying the baby animal.
She posted a black and white selfie on Instagram, explaining in the caption that before any drama occurs, she wanted to clear the air and state that the couple will not be getting back together.
Months after his father's death, Matt also shared some sad news of his own. He reported on Instagram that one of his baby birds had passed away overnight. He said:
“I have some sad news. One of the baby birds passed away last night.”
The reality star explained that in the middle of the night, his house had gotten cold and the bird crawled out of its nest. When he found the bird, it was already cold and stiff. He tried to warm the bird and feed it, but died.
After losing one of the baby birds, Matt checked on the other two birds, they appeared to be doing fine. Later, he shared his video of digging a grave and burying the baby bird.
