Noah Brown, a cast member of the reality series Alaskan Bush People, was rushed to the hospital for emergency gallbladder surgery.


The 25-year-old underwent surgery on April 10, 2018, in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho. Brown is estranged from his family and lives in Idaho with his fiance, Rhain Merrill. 

As reported by Radar Online, the news of the surgery only became public knowledge when a fan saw Brown in a parking lot at Beyers Market in Tonasket, Washington. 

He naturally wanted to meet Brown and introduced himself. Brown shook the unnamed fan's hand and apologized for his weak grip. 

He explained that he was still recovering from gallbladder surgery, and showed off his scar, "right there in the parking lot!" the fan exclaimed. 


Unfortunately, the fan later learned that Brown wasn't such a nice guy. He was disappointed to hear from the staff at the market that Brown acted as though he was better than everybody else. 

According to Radar Online, Brown wanted prime rib. The celebrity became rude when staff informed him that they didn't have in stock. 

The outlet also noted that Brown and Merrill are preparing for their wedding, and wanted to meet with fans on March 31, 2018. The couple announced the event on Facebook. 

Even though many fans said they would show up, few did. One of the attendees said that the couple was "expecting a large crowd," and was disappointed by the turnout. 


The source told Radar Online that most residents don't want the couple in Coeur D'Alene. In fact, there are "only have a few die-hard fans." 

As reported by Pop Culture, Brown's mother, Ami, also suffered health complications recently when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. 

She only had a 3 percent chance of survival but was determined to beat cancer. She has since been declared cancer-free.
