Jacob Roloff tweets he feels like he's "getting f*cked out of the money from the show..."









































Occasionally a Roloff will post something on social media that generates so much discussion that we feel it's best to dedicate one blog item to that issue.

Last night, August 29th, 2015, Jacob Roloff tweeted:

Man I wish it didn't feel like I was getting fucked out of the money from the show that was my childhood right now























========================================
Edit: Jacob's tweet has generated a media firestorm unlike anything the Roloffs have faced before.
In the past, mainstream entertainment "celebrity news" sites such as TMZ have left the Roloffs alone unlike other TLC reality show stars like the Gosselin's and the Duggars or Honey Boo Boo. Almost no major sites ever carried the news "Jeremy Roloff" racist and homophobic scandal that the National Enquirer ran in 2008. Most times that the Roloffs were in the media it was with the cooperation of Matt and Amy Roloff and/or TLC. However, now the mainstream celebrity news sites have focused on the Roloffs with a critical eye because of Jacob's tweet.

Here is a sampling of the stories from various sites and the links to said stories.
After we first did this story on Jacob's tweet, the celebrity news site Starcasm.net also did a story on it:
Starcasm.net: Jacob Roloff says he was 'f*ked out of money from Little People, Big World

http://starcasm.net/archives/327754


Then from there, the big one was TMZ focusing on the story including an interesting analysis. Gary from TMZ claims to have talked to people connected to the show and gives his take on what he thinks happened. Basically, he says TLC is good at putting the money to minor children into trust funds - he thinks that happened and now that Jacob turned 18 he went to Matt and Amy and said 'Give me my money' and they said 'No'. That's just his speculation. Either that or he thinks Jacob "feels" like he's getting screwed because it's very possible the Roloffs who are featured more prominently on the show such as Zach and Jeremy and obviously Matt and Amy are getting paid more than Jacob who didn't want to be filmed much so it's not uncommon for a network to base the pay on how much they feature or use that person. Since Jacob didn't want to participate much, he's not going to get paid the same as Jeremy or Zach.

Here is an interesting TMZ commentary from Gary regarding the Jacob tweet.



Radaronline then jumped on the story with a series of Roloff articles.

A slew of other sites picked up the story.

The Daily Mail: Little People, Big World's Jacob Roloff, 18, 'claims he's being cheated out of his earnings from TLC show'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3219911/Little-People-Big-World-s-Jacob-Roloff-18-worried-s-cheated-earnings-TLC-show.html.

And 'OK Magazine'

OKmagazine.com: Little People Big World's Jacob Roloff goes on a rant about not getting paid for reality show

http://okmagazine.com/photos/jacob-roloff-twitter-rant-little-people-big-world-paid/photo/1001311394/

Not surprisingly, all of the media articles about it caught the attention of everyone on twitter. People from the group "A Minor Consideration", a non profit organization formed to 'give guidance to young performers' have been tweeting Jacob encouraging him to contact lawyers.

if he didn't receive his paycheck for 7 years, someone needs to explain themselves.

currently, TLC says they've been paying minors and setting up trust accounts. Where's his?

if they PAID, and account WAS opened, did someone else, (parents?), take the money?

wherever his money is, at 18, he is legally entitled to it now. Answers are needed here.

he needs an attorney and an account to go through the paperwork and locate these funds.

OK, let's sort this out - did TLC pay or not? Was a trust account opened or not? WHO has your money?

======================================

As of yet, none of Matt or Amy Roloff, TLC or Jacob Roloff himself have commented on these stories. As of yet, Jacob has not expanded on or explained his original tweet any further.

I saw that and thought "WHOA!"

Not all is well in Roloff land!

Brandon said...

I wonder if this is the start of Jacob's true rebel. It's kind of a shot across the bow...for a kid from reality show to say he's being cheated out of money.

Judy said...

Jacob is disgusting! His feel sorry for himself attitude is pathetic. First the tweets essentially saying his parents used them for "their ratings" now he's whining about money.

Denise said...

This might be the Roloffs finally taking a stand against Jacob.

He's done nothing but give them headaches and bash the show. But he sure does want money.

Kelly said...

Hey Jacob, instead of blaming everybody else, why don't you get your own job and make your own way in life.

Paula said...

It's awful language. Awful thing to tweet.

It should be deleted soon when Matt and Amy and TLC see it.

Shelby said...

I love it! Is this finally karma??? He's done nothing but complain about the show but he's the first one to have his greedy hand out for it.

Michelle said...

The way Jacob says "that was my childhood" annoys me. He loves playing the victim so much. I just want to slap him. The spoiled brat doesn't even realize the majority of kids would have traded places with him in a heartbeat. But in Jacob's mind, he had it so tough. He got opportunities most kids never did. And now he's upset because he's not getting as much money as he thinks he deserves?

Barb said...

I trust Matt and Amy when it comes to their kids. I think Jacob is throwing a temper tantrum. Funny how Jeremy, Zach and Molly aren't complaining.

Janet said...

He has some nerve complain about money when he's never been cooperative.

I hope this is the last straw and the rest of the Roloffs get a back bone and disown him.

They can't continually put him with his disrespectful attacks on their character.

Connor said...

Anyone with a brain could have predicted Jacob was going to pull out this card as a powerplay against his parents. They probably said "No" to him about something so this is his way of threatening to cause trouble.

He is so disloyal and unappreciative to the rest of the family.

Janet is 100% right. I doubt it will happen, but it's about time the Roloffs stop letting Jacob crap on them and just sit there smiling saying "Jacob is such a good boy"!

Nancy said...

I wonder what he really means.

Maybe it's not like it sounds (most people figured it was going to a trust fund), maybe he means something is happening with the farm property and he feels like part of the equity is his?

Rap541 said...

Actually I think the question here is "Is Jacob getting fucked over the money that was earned over his childhood being sold for view to TLC?"

I frankly don't trust Matt in particular when it comes to money being dispersed to the kids. The reality is that Matt and Amy were the ones in control of all of the money until each kid turned 18. And Matt and Amy have bought a significant piece of property with the show money, they've significantly improved their home with the show money, they have a collection of classic cars with the show money... I admit to being curious how much got put aside for each kid, particularly since Jake is the one the fans have been calling a slutty evil skank when he was 10 and who has spent his entire teen years hearing from fans how he's the piece of shit Roloff who is evil and needs to die.

I mean, I know the popular opinion is that Jake deserves nothing because of how awesome the experience of being whored out for the cameras is, but really, Matt and Amy, by dint of not having an abortion, were obligated to actually provide for their child. If they couldn't do it without putting him to work on the show (and I include the other kids in this) then they aren't very good parents to begin with, and yes, if the paychecks were earned in part because of the kids... then the kids do have some right to know where the money went.

I think the big blow up will be when Mady and Cara Gosselin turn eighteen. TLC does not require the parents who are selling their kids out to them to actually provide anything in the way of trust funds for the kids.

Or you know, you can just twirl around screaming "YAY I HATE JACOB! THANK YOU JESUS FOR MAKING HIM UNHAPPY! PLEASE SMITE HIM MORE SO I CAN LAUGH AND LAUGH AT HIS PAIN LIKE A GOOD CHRISTIAN"...

The choice is yours.

Andrea said...

Jacob needs to learn how to make a point without using vulgar words. It reveals that he is very unintelligent when he can't write a sentence without a curse word.

I agree Jacob is a very disloyal son and brother.

Eric said...

LOL. The brat thinks he was "fucked out" of money yet Hey Jacob, where'd you get your truck???? How have you lived for the past 8 months? Who pays your insurance? Where does the money come from?

Oh that's right, Jacob is so out of touch with the real world, he thinks things like an 18 year old getting a truck is normal.

Tina said...

I'm wondering if Jacob has blown all of his money already and is just whining that there isn't more.

Barb said...

Rap, why don't you think the Zach, Jeremy or Molly aren't tweeting the same thing as Jacob?

Do you think it's realistic that Matt and Amy "screwed" Jacob re: Money but didn't to the other 3? I doubt that's true.

I think it's Jacob being a self entitled brat. Maybe he added up all the money they earned since he was 6 and is demanding a 6th of it...that's not how it works. They had expenses. They did things with the money that benefited Jacob then and does now and will for the future (unless they come to their senses and disown him for his disrecpect) like more land and increasing the value of the home.

Taylor said...

"Or you know, you can just twirl around screaming "YAY I HATE JACOB! THANK YOU JESUS FOR MAKING HIM UNHAPPY! PLEASE SMITE HIM MORE SO I CAN LAUGH AND LAUGH AT HIS PAIN LIKE A GOOD CHRISTIAN"..."

Well Rap, that's kind of true. I admit it too. I was happy to see this title. My first reaction was "Good! Jacob deserves it". Then I was kind of angry at how Jacob never hesitates to throw his family under the bus. But he sure does mooch off of them.

You can say Jeremy, Zach, and Molly whore off LPBW too, but at least they (except for Zach years ago, but he fell in line) go along with the show. They didn't bad mouth it like Jacob. They didn't put up the fight that Jacob did.

I bet if we knew the real details it would be a case of Jacob being unreasonable.

Rap541 said...

BArb - I think Jeremy and Zach have gotten much bigger pieces of the pie. I seem to recall Jer and Zach getting a special trip to Europe on their own, new cars for both, four years of loafing at home after high school, a house for Zach and an expensive hobby degree for Jeremy along with weddings paid for and nearly a year in Los Angeles subsidized for Jeremy as well. Those two have clearly gotten a piece of the pie that Jacob and Molly haven't received. I mean really, how is Jeremy paying for his three cars?

Molly I suspect just doesn't like trouble. From a tradeout standpoint tho, it's really quite clear that Jeremy and Zach received a lot more than Molly and Jacob.

And perhaps its easy for Jer to smile and love the show when his ass is constantly kissed over it? I mean really, Jer's failures are blessings from Jesus, his every move is praised, and Jacob in contrast has been getting publically shit on since he was 10 by fans of the show.

Jocelynn said...

I find this pretty shocking too. Just the fact that Jacob would vent about it on twitter must mean he's really pissed off.

Matt and Amy will probably give him whatever he wants in the short term to settle him down. Unfortunately, Jacob has proven he can be bought off and this is what this seems like it is about.

Rap541 said...

Taylor - you really just admitted you delight in the pain of others?

Really? That's who you are and you don't see ANYTHING wrong with that? "I'm Taylor and I love to hate! People having bad things happen to them makes me happy! But I am better than Jacob Roloff who I hate for doing the same thing that makes me AWESOME".

Seriously, you're thanking Jesus for hurting someone. Talk about bad karma.

Katie said...

Isabel is probably making him go bankrupt with all of her expensive shopping tastes, lol.

But seriously, Jacob is such a jerk. He has no moral problem with bashing his family and trying to make them seem like horrible people.

He blames the show for ruining his childhood without ever thinking what it would have been like without it and now he's complaining that he doesn't have as much money as he thinks he deserves? Greedy and ungrateful.

Taylor said...

I'm thanking Jesus because I think this part of his plan to teach Jacob a lesson that acting like selfish jerk and treating people badly won't lead to his own happiness. And if Jacob is "hurt" by not getting as much money as he wants...then that's a really sad statement about Jacob's priorities, but I'm not surprised! Money and drugs seems to be what he cares about instead of Family and God.

Megan said...

IF (and that's an if) got more from the show than Jacob and Molly (who isn't complaining and seems like a good person and a good family member) I think it was deserves.

Jacob by his own admission was hardly on the show while Jeremy and Zach have always been the focus of the show. They filmed while Jacob hid and complained.

Jacob would admit he would stay away from the cameras but somehow thinks he deserves a big piece of the pie now and wants his hand out?

And for what? So he can blow it on a selfish girlfriend and weed?

Debbie said...

Jacob just doesn't get any better.

This is horrible. Every week he's doing something terrible. The way he treats his family is shameful. I echo the sentiment that I pray the Roloffs finaly use this as their wake up call and stand up to Jacob once and for all.

If he thinks he was so abused and mistreated and had such a bad childhood with all the cool stuff they had and the pool he loves and the farm he loves and the truck and then the Roloffs should tell him to get off their property and not come back until he apologizes.

Lauren said...

Jacob didn't say he was, he said "I wish I didn't feel like I was", which tells me his feelings aren't objective and are most likely not justified.

Jim said...

Jacob is such a traitor. What a bitch. The Roloffs are going to regret not getting rid of Jacob sooner.

Kayla said...

Jacob didn't seem to have a problem with the money when he signed on to do the show this season after vowing to not sign another contract. Maybe Jacob just can't read very well...

PJ said...

Barb,
I do think it's reasonable to think Matt has treated the kids differently. We see it every week on the show.
Rap is right that Matt probably spent the majority of the show money. The other three have had at least a few years of show money as adults. They were older when the show started and may not feel their childhoods were ruined by the thoughtlessness of their parents. And Molly, Zach and Jeremy are not Jake, different people different personalities and different needs and wants. I can see someone wanting their share, in this case one sixth of all the money earned via the show. What did they do to benefit Jake directly? The only thing I remember directly involving Jake was when Matt decided that it was okay to make the kid's room substantially smaller because Matt was gonna die if he couldn't have his own way with the house design

Andrea,
Sometimes vulgar language is the only thing that fits someone's feelings.

Eric,
It's not unusual for people to give their child a car/truck, happens every day. The truck was a present from his parents. A present shouldn't have come out of Jake's money. As for the rest Isabel says Jake is working for her father, so the kid that you all claim is a lazy, worthless drug addict is actually doing something the Golden Child Jeremy didn't do at that age, holding down a job and supporting himself.Hmmmm.

Rap541 said...

Don't back peddle because you've realized you've made yourself sound like a shitty horrible person, Taylor.

". I admit it too. I was happy to see this title. My first reaction was "Good! Jacob deserves it".

Now you've realized how asshole you sound and now you're attempting to suggest you had religious motivations. Bull. You're as hateful as you believe Jacob Roloff is.

Taylor said...

Rap, I'm not back tracking, lol!

I am glad that Jacob is unhappy and feels he got ripped off. He's a selfish jerk and I'm glad it's finally coming back onto him. I hope what really is going on is that Matt and Amy finally stood up to him and this is his revenge by bashing them on twitter.

Eric said...

PJ, get real! Jacob got a truck because of the show! Now he's whining about money. Look at your truck! Thank the show! Thank your parents! Ask your friends how many times they've been to the virgin islands or Australia or the Bahamas or Europe or Costa Rica or Hawaii....then thank the show and his parents!

He's such a spoiled brat. What a puke to complain about money now.

Tammy said...

Why does Jacob feel like he's getting ripped off? Is it just not as much as he thinks he's worth? An over evaulation?

Rap541 said...

Eric - it's entirely possible the issue is the disparity in distribution. Jake got a used truck, sure. What did Jeremy and Zach get? Lets see... Jeremy got a used truck, and a classic restored BMW, a muscle car, a VW van, some sort of Jeep monstrousity.... Zach got the used Previa and then a brand new SUV. Molly got a used car that didn't seem to work well, and then a new car... And Jake got a truck.

That's just to use the car comparison. I mean really, how many times were the twins's birthday treated as a full day festival of professional sporting teams coming to the farm to kiss the twins asses and glider flights....

Hell, considering that Jeremy has laid claim to the farm and the new parts of the farm were purchased with show money... there's some disparity in how the money is being handed out.

Timothy said...

You could see this coming years ago. This is probably just the tip of the iceberg.

I predict a full blown revolt from Jacob in a few years. I guess it will depend on if he gets the money he feels he deserves or not.

Connor said...

It's nice that Jacob took a minute in between tweeting about how awful police are to bash his parents and the show for giving him everything he loves about his life.

Eric said...

Rap, Jacob's truck looks pretty sweet. And he just turned 18. He already was gifted with the truck. If you believe the anonymous Jacob defenders on here, Jacob got it with the money from the show...which he's now bitching about.

Either way (whether Matt and Amy bought the truck for him or Jacob bought it with the money he got from the show) he still has the show to thank for it since God knows he can't earn his own way but all he does is complain and makes himself into a victim.

Rap541 said...

Eric - Jeremy got a truck at 16, and has some pretty sweet looking vehicles. There does seem to be some disparity in how the money is being distributed.

If you're not following my point - one nice used truck is still less than one nice used truck, one vw van, one classic restored BMW, one giant Jeep thing, and one muscle car

Andres said...

Why do you throw in a comment about Isabel making him go broke because of her expensive shopping taste? When do we ever get a glimpse of Isabel's "expensive taste"? Audrey is the one toting 400 dollar nursing bags. When does Isabel gloat about shopping or buying things? And she has a job, what makes you think she makes Jacob pay for her?
Last I heard, on this site, Jacob was mooching off of HER. I get no indication or idea that Isabel makes Jacob pay for her clothes, anything. Keep your story straight you loons.

Eric said...

Rap, to be fair, some of Jeremy's vehicles were trade outs that came when the show was a full season, not just a few episodes of "specials". What did you want them to do, give Jacob a gold plated stuffed animal when Jeremy was 17 and he Jacob was 10?

But the point is, all of the Roloffs benefited from the show and got a bunch of cool free stuff. Including Jacob. Now he's whining. The truck he's driving in today is all thanks to the show, but he's still complaining.

Katie said...

Andres, Isabel has very expensive taste if you follow her Instagram and they are always driving all over the place. And of course they don't have real jobs. I would bet a lot that Jacob's tweet all came about because Isabel wanted Jacob to get something for expensive for her and he's wishing he had more money to blow so now he's resorted to the low blow of making his parents sound like crooks.

Katie said...

Btw Andres, Jeremy isn't the one complaining about being f'd out of money from the show.

Greg said...

I think it's hilarious Jacob will tweet about how money isn't important in life, but he compromises his principles (like believing the show damages a 6 year old but will participate) by running for the cash and now he's complaining that he doesn't have enough.

I guess money just got important to him again. Jacob Roloff. What a joke.

Rap541 said...

Rap, to be fair, some of Jeremy's vehicles were trade outs that came when the show was a full season, not just a few episodes of "specials". What did you want them to do, give Jacob a gold plated stuffed animal when Jeremy was 17 and he Jacob was 10?

Perhaps then, money should have been put aside so that all the children could benefit fairly? Which might be the point?

So far, you can't refute that Jeremy and Zach clearly received more than Jacob and Molly. Trust, even in non reality whore families, disparity in how money is divided out causes resentments if it's not fair.

IsPansy said...

Rap,
You forgot Jeremy got his for profit Trade School education and money to move to Los Angeles. Molly got college. Zach got the ability to work part time(at least for a while) and probably some house money.
Eric,
Sure the money for the truck came from the show BUT as a gift it should have come from his parents share, not his. Do you take money from someone, buy them something and call it a gift? i sure don't. And the trips mentioned were just fodder for the show, not real vacations or educational trips, just location shoots.

Greg,
I don't think this is about the money really, I think it's more about the poor way Amy and Matt have treated him since he was little.Yes he had a roof over his head and food to eat but there never seemed to be much love and time for Jake compared to the others.

I very much agree that Jake got the short end of the show money. it's probably largely gone by now, they haven't been filming all that much that last few years.

Maria said...

I don't know how the money was divided up but if Jeremy and Zach got more I think that's right. They were on it more. Jacob has said himself he was hardly in it.

It sounds to me like the story about how the kid would't help bake bread but when it was done, he was the first one wanting to eat it. Don't help much with the making of it but want to reap the rewards.

Pamela said...

Jacob is so selfish and greedy. I hope the family doesn't put up with this.

Alexa said...

Isabel has always been obsessed with fame and money. IMO, she is pushing Jacob to get more money. She has always been very materialistic.

Andres said...

Katie, I'm confused, because I DO follow Isabel's Instagram and I don't see how she has "expensive taste" at all. She dresses fairly nicely, kind of mediocre honestly. Audrey is the one who looks like she has expensive taste to me with her Free People and new heels and nice bags and done up hair extensions. And I'm just utterly confused because last I knew you were all chiding her for inheriting money from her mother's passing (even though that is usually a standard to someone dying, someone has to inherit their money). She also does work at a dog daycare facility and receives a paycheck so I don't know what you mean by "real job". Audrey doesn't even have a job nor does Jeremy. I don't know about Jacob at all. "They're always driving everywhere"... Uhuh people do drive. It's 2015 people drive cars. Your points are seriously overdone and pretty pathetic.
If you're going to spit facts and try to make it seem like you know anything, why don't you actually have your facts in order? Why don't you actually pretend to know what's going on?
You can't just make up something and hope someone runs with it.
If you're going to dub anyone with expensive taste, dub the real one.

Zeke said...

Audrey is the materialistic one. I don't know why you all seem confused.

Dale said...

Boohoo. Jacob had an epic childhood. If he lived a day in a normal kid's life he wouldn't think he had it so bad.

This seems like cash grab by Jacob to try to make his parents give in and feel guilt.

Leanne said...

Jacob is all about the money.

Shelby said...

Thanks Taylor. I don't care what Rap thinks. I think it is awesome that Jacob feels like he's getting screwed. He deserves it. Even to say these things and bash his family show how awful he is.

Rap541 said...

Oh Shelby, don't you understand? The more you say that, the more you are making it clear that you and Jacob are peas in the pod. You're so like him. Tell me more how you enjoy laughing at the pain of others :)

Because all you're doing is reinforcing the fact that you're an awful person. The more you delight, the more amused I am that you've said karma's a bitch...

becca said...

I'm just throwing out an idea I've thought about. Is it possible that it's Isabel who is a bad influence on Jacob and she's trying to drive a wedge between Jacob and his family so he will be more likely to stay with her?

IsPansy said...

Dale,
Believe it or not not everyone wants to be on camera. I would have hated that as a kid and run first chance I got.

To the rest of you who expound opinions about Jake and Isabel,
So you live in the area and actually know them? Thought not. So stop assigning motivations to them. What you are saying says a hell of a lot more about you and your greed than it does about Jake.

Jerome said...

@Andrea You obviously haven't been around kids of his generation lately. Go to the mall one weekend and listen to conversations of kids and you will hear every vulgar word known to man usually in the same sentence. Even probably some words you have never heard either.

Dale said...

Ispansy, he sure does like money though.

Yeah there's pros and cons to everything. But having the opportunity Jacob had is something most would be happy to have. He needs to stop playing victim.

Otto Preminger said...

That jacob has not received a fair share of the shows profit is blatantly obvious. The other siblings got cars, Jer & Molly an education etc etc. The head gypsy now has a mansion. .. has doubled the size of the farm etc. . . Who can, in fairness not see the kids side of this: 10 yrs of crap & what does he have? Probably close to shit seeing that he is actually "working" for his gals dad. His gypsy brother, little Zack has a house. Little Zack gets by with a mere part-time job at a soccer field (anyone know what he does? Pick up the bottles & trash after events?) AND OF COURSE . . the freak channels money. . . The other gypsy brother, LORD Jer has NEVER had need of such a lowly thing as a JOB. . . not when there is freak show money abound . . .25 yrs old .. tsk tsk . . .And Amy, well .. . she keeps a messy house i guess. . . Last i saw of Matt he was using his crutch to point out to the laborers "this & that" . . .Matt is pretty good at pointing at "stuff" with his crutch .. . i'l give him that . . .

Podge/Rodge groupie said...

There are NO Jackie Cooper laws in the state of Oregon. No trust funds have to be set up. No payments plane for underaged children need to be in place. Matt and Amy are free to spend as much of the show money when and where they see fit. Matt does not have to be fair about anything, and he certainly has proven that with his idolatry (which is a sin) in the past.

Brenden said...

A little perspective here. Jacob thinks a great travesty befell him just because his Mom would wake him up for school... Do you think he's prone to being over sensitive?

Oh and he also advocates for everyone to quit their jobs and quit school because apparently those things are evil. Hmm is he out of touch? Spoiled?

Jacob's the least important of the show, he's the equivalent of a Duggard kid, which is why I always laugh when he insinuates that he's really really famous.

My bet would be Jacob's whining because the money's in a trust that gives him regular payments but nooo he wants it all now.

IsPansy said...

Dale,
Why can you not accept that someone would not want to be filmed? This isn't like filming a sitcom where the cameras stop and you go home at night. These people were followed around for years.And there were retakes because someone didn't like the shots. Imagine having to replay moments in your own life because some stranger didn't like it.
Jake likes money, so what don't you?

Anonymous said...

With the divorce making its way through the courts, the truth about the money - or lack of money has come out. There was no trust fund, and it's unlikely to be any future specials. It all ends when he's finally old enough to legally require his share of payment.

Ecossais said...

What happened to Anne this week.
Maybe she has had a heart attack after this latest from Jacob???

Angela said...

I am appalled at Jacob. After all his family has done for him he continues to spit in their faces. He's basically accusing Matt and Amy of stealing from him. Jacob is a sickening human being. He thinks the show damaged him but he continues to do it. He doesn't work, but loves his pool and his truck. Now he's complaining (in the most vulgar way)about not getting enough money. I pray the Roloffs disown him.

Janet said...

Brenden, very well said. I totally agree.

Dale said...

"Jake likes money, so what don't you?"

Ispansy, Jacob whines that the show has damaged him. He thinks it's evil and wrong to film young children. He called the show fake and stupid.

If he had character he would have walked away from it. Instead he signed on for the money. He got paid while they filmed another 6 year old and then he had the nerve to talk about how damaging it could be to the boy. But he still stuck around because he loves the money.

That's being a sell out and a disgrace. If you think it's so bad and think it's ruined your life and blame everyone else for it, then at least have the character to walk away from it when you have the chance.

Dale,
The damage is done why not take the money? And I can hear Matt saying "Jake if you don't sign, they won't film and we'll lose the farm". Who wants to be the kid that lost Jeremy's legacy?

Ecossais,
I think Anne is at home doing a mental game of Twister trying to figure out how to turn Tori and Zach's wedding into a paean to Audrey.

Gail said...

"A little perspective here. Jacob thinks a great travesty befell him just because his Mom would wake him up for school... Do you think he's prone to being over sensitive?

Oh and he also advocates for everyone to quit their jobs and quit school because apparently those things are evil. Hmm is he out of touch? Spoiled?

Jacob's the least important of the show, he's the equivalent of a Duggard kid, which is why I always laugh when he insinuates that he's really really famous.

My bet would be Jacob's whining because the money's in a trust that gives him regular payments but nooo he wants it all now."

Exactly Brenden. Thank you. I agree.

"My bet would be Jacob's whining because the money's in a trust that gives him regular payments but nooo he wants it all now"

Until Matt or Amy specifically state publically that there is money in a trust for Jacob, there is absolutely no reason to think it is true.

Sorry folks, Oregon isn't California and TLC doesn't film in California to avoid such laws protecting kids on tv. The only way there is money put aside in a trust for Jake is if Matt and Amy chose to do so... they were not required to do so.

Until they speak out and state it's a fact, there is no reason to assume they did so.

As establishing a trust fund for the profits of the show for the minor children in no way makes Matt and Amy look bad, there's no reason they would have a problem confirming it... *especially* if Jacob is making accusations that the money wasn't dispersed fairly.

Think about it.

JE said...

I googled the Roloffs and ended up at this site... I haven't watched the show in years due to some downsizing in my life and cable had to go but I was curious to know how the kids turned out. My mouth is hanging open at all the hatred being expressed for Jacob - does no one remember how lost Jeremy and Zachary were at the same age? I seem to remember them failing out of school and neglecting to remember to bring a pencil to the SATs. And their bedroom - it was disgusting! Were it not for Amy kicking their butts, I doubt they would have graduated high school. I have no idea how much children should be paid for appearing on their parents' reality show but watching Jacob get hit with the catapult was scarring for me and I didn't go through it. Surely the child deserves something for that. How he feels about the show now is moot. Anyhow, thanks for getting me caught up!

Brenden said...

All that standing around and one word episodes whew now that's some hard work deserving of a raise! He should start a union with other non essential reality "stars". He can join forces with say the 17th Duggar. Both were robbed of their childhoods! Completely stolen! We're still not sure who has them. And don't mind all that smiling in the show, it was forced!

Shelby said...

Well said Brenden! I like you. For Jacob to make this accusation about his family is so Jacob like. He's such a traitor and a whiner.

Maggie said...

Jacob really doesn't care what he says about anyone. He will trash anyone even family who has given him everything. He should be kissing their shoes instead of whining like a baby with his 'poor me' act.

Justin said...

How long can the Roloffs take being slapped in the face by Jacob? Get some balls!

Lynn C said...

Rap541, don't hopscotch around it.

Are you accusing Matt of stealing from Jacob?

And you think Matt only stole from Jacob and not Molly, Zach or Jeremy? I don't see them ranting about money.

I agree with Brenden. We all know Jacob is self absorbed and not rational. He is probably upset because it is in a trust fund and he wants to spend it all now and can't because of the way it was set up so he's decided the best way to get revenge is trash Matt and Amy this way. It's very low class and incredibly disrespectful to his family and the show that he owes so much to for the life he enjoys.

Paige said...

I blame a lot of what Jacob has done lately on his girlfriend Isabel too. I'm also guessing that Isabel planted the idea in Jacob's head that his family is stealing from him. It's obvious she is jealous that they liked Vanessa more.

Rap541 said...

I'm not hopscotching around it, Lynn. You just don't like what's being said.

Until Matt and Amy state publically that Jacob has a trust fund from the show, we can't assume he does.

Do you think its fair that Jacob is being publically maligned for being unhappy over how a theoretical trust fund is paying out when there's utterly no evidence a trust fund exists? Yes or no.

TLC is under no requirement to insist the parents of any show they do that isn't in California set up trust funds. The parents are written a check for the children's participation.

Matt and Amy have every reason in the world at this point to loudly and proudly establish publically that Jacob has a trust fund for his earnings from the show that they established. He's pretty bluntly stating he was cheated and "There's a trust fund" is an INCREDIBLE defense.

If true, anyway. But there's really no reason for Matt and Amy to deny such a truth since frankly it only makes them look like decent parents.

I actually can't call it stealing since its perfectly legal for Matt to sell the privacy of his children, take the check that TLC writes to his corporation, and spend it on things Matt wants. Legally, Lynn, until a Roloff kid turns eighteen, Matt and Amy were getting all the money.

I've cited a clear example - the cars - of how Jeremy and Zach and even Molly have received more material wealth from the show. Why would Jeremy complain, Lynn? He's gotten five cars and doesn't have to work a job. Zach has a house and a new car. If anyone should be complaining with Jacob, it's Molly and she seems to be the sort to not make waves and the sort to run for the hills.

Lynn - is there ANY proof of a trust fund? or are you just hating? I am open to any proof - but if there is no proof then you're just hating over something you have no idea about.

Rap541 said...

Paige - in all seriousness, do you think Vanessa even registered on them?

Paige said...

@Rap541 Yes, I think they liked Vanessa. Both Matt and Amy commented on Facebook about how much they liked Vanessa. They haven't done that about Isabel. Vanessa was a classy girl who dressed up and was a proud Christian girl. Remember one of the big reasons why Jacob dumped her was because she didn't like his pot smoking.

Anonymous said...

There's clearly a trust fund Rap. Don't be naive.

Rap541 said...

Paige - do you think they really are upset over a girlfriend that I think he dumped two years ago at this point? To where Isobel would be upset? Is there any proof that Matt and Amy give two shits over who Jacob dates? I mean, he was posting how he was fucking her while he lived in their home and they did nothing. Pretty sure he nailed Vanessa too.

Brenden said...

Rap,

To me it doesn't matter if he has a trust fund or not. I don't oppose not paying him anything. I also don't oppose a meager sum proportional to his involvement in the show, say <30k, which is curiously like his new Toyota. If the trust doesn't exist, then he thinks he deserves more money from being on the show. And as the least important member, he needs the reality check that his "work" doesn't justify the amounts he wants. Sorry Jacob, get off your high horse, you're not Honey Boo Boo. To her, you're one of those irrelevant people you love to label.

Bonnie said...

Rap, if there is no trust fund, how do you think Jacob got his truck? You can try to make it sound like it's a piece of crap by calling it a "used truck" but it's a really nice expensive truck. And that means the insurance would be huge for an 18 year old driver. Again where is the money coming from? Jacob's so-called make believe job with his girlfriend's father?

Rap541 said...

Anon - I am not being naïve at all. If there's clearly a trust fund then Matt and Amy have EVERY REASON to say so.

Jacob is publically stating he was fucked over with the money. I assure you - Matt and Amy publically committing that Jacob has a trust fund that he can get money from that is set up with limits due to his age would completely exonerate Matt and Amy. They have NO reason to not publically reveal this as Jacob is pointedly accusing them of cheating him.

Shelby said...

@Brenden, Well said again! Standing ovation!!

Kaitlyn said...

Brenden, are you saying 30,000 in total?? Like since Jacob was 6? That is approximately (I realize they didn't do the show for a couple of years) $2500 a year.

Or do you mean $30,000 a year? That would be over 200,000.

Rap541 said...

Bonnie - I genuinely think the truck came from the current proceeds from the show and not a trust fund. I also think it would be awkward for Matt and Amy after gifting all the other kids with multiple cars to not give or assist Jacob with a car because frankly it makes it too clear that he's unfavored.

Seriously, I actually would LOVE to see some real proof of a trust fund. Throw it at me. But until you do, I have to assume it doesn't exist since there's no reason for Matt and Amy to deny it. It only makes Matt and Amy look *good* to admit Jacob has a trust fund.

Debbie said...

Rap, if there is anything that all of us should have learned about the rest of the Roloffs it is they don't discuss real family matters on the internet. I wish they would at times, but they don't and won't. Matt and Amy don't need to let Jacob bait them into a scandal. Let Jacob throw his twitter temper tantrum it will blow over. But I hope they punish him by kicking him out some day.

Hillary said...

I am also of the mind that this is Jacob whining that he thinks he should have got paid more than he was worth and it's him upset because he wanted more. I don't think Matt and Amy did anything wrong. Jacob is just greedy and wants to be able to be lazy all his life and is mad that maybe he will actually need to do something with his life.

Brenden said...

Kaitlyn,

Yes, 30k for the span of the entire show, or somewhere around there. I suspect it should be around there, perhaps less, perhaps more. Matt likely put all the money on his mortgage, at least early on. I looked up the value of the farm once, I wasn't that impressed, I think it was below $1 million, maybe 700k, but I'm not certain anymore.

Vicky said...

Jacob didn't even actually say he doesn't have a trust fund. All he is whining about is "I wish I didn't feel like it was being bleeped out of money from the show."

I think that means he is just mad he can't have what he wants now.

Brenden said...

I'm pretty sure Jacob gets whatever he asks for. He had tons of electronics, even multiples of the same electronics. He had bongs and drug paraphenelia. I'm sure he asked for the truck and got it. Probably a GED gift. He gets whatever he wants as it is. Being "screwed out of the show" indicates that he feels he deserves more, but frankly I don't think his involvement justifies it.

And thanks Shelby lol.

Rap541 said...

Debbie - again, Jacob is making a public accusation that, if there's really a trust fund, Matt and Amy can easily stamp down on and come off looking like awesome parents. Seriously - if there really is a trust fund, Matt and Amy will like *saints*. What Jacob has accused them of is a scandal unless they simply provide proof he's lying... and there's really no reason for them not to since he's publically accusing them.

Matt and Amy publically committing to and proving a trust fund exists makes Jacob look like the whining asshole you want him to be. They would come off smelling like roses and he would be that nasty kid that lied about his nice parents... Seriously, "We don't publically discuss such things so when our son accuses us of cheating him from profits.... We choose to let him make the accusation, make no protest at all, even tho we can prove we're supremely decent folks" - does that sound like Matt Roloff? Really?

Peter said...

I find it very interesting that Jacob chose to tweet about this. It is the first, or actually second shot (the first was the crack about being forced to perform "for your parents' ratings") he fired at his parents for the obvious resentment he feels towards them.

If the money for Jacob is really all gone and he probably thought he would have a lifetime of money since he hated the show so much and probably thought at least he'd have money for it, then he really should consider going rogue. Become estranged from the family.

Try for a book or whatever attention he can from the perspective of a kid being forced to film the show and all the secrets and lies that came from it.

Or he can suck it up. Pretend that he's cool with the family. Get his own job. Be happy with the little bit of money he gets from the 6 or 7 episodes a year they might get over the next 3 or 4 years.

Lauren said...

Brenden, I think you're bang on. Jacob does get whatever he wants and does whatever he wants. It is Matt and Amy's fault that they always give in. That's why I tend to lean towards the crowd that says Jacob tweeted this because he asked for something and was told no, so he tries to get them back by trashing them on twitter.

Otto Preminger said...

Week after week. Month after month. For appx.10 yrs. The head gypsy had to be in control of every moment. This is Oregon, not Calif. Only fools would think the head gypsy would relinquish ANY control. Who can doubt he took ALL the Roloff money to mortgage the property next door? Remember that show? The TLC money gets distributed as Matt see's fit. Lord Jer gets the lions share of course. Then Amy's fav. little Zack comes in 2nd (new car, a house?) Molly gets college & god knows what else. Now, we come to the bad seed, the bad son. Me thinks he gets the shitty end of the deal. Shit for u bad seed!

Anonymous said...

Brenden are you the kid who was friends with Jacob in high school?

Gina said...

I for one am glad that for once Jacob is not getting what he wants.

Anonymous said...

Jacob's truck is used and is a 1990s Toyota Tacoma model. It's not an expensive truck. I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma and I paid 21,000 brand new.
Jacob's probably is shock how much little money he got from the trust fund. He was shock how much gas was and his car insurance was too. Maybe he doesn't get all the money when he tuned 18. Maybe he has to wait until he's 24 to get the rest f the money.
The kids must get a lot if Zach bought a house on a coaching part time and working at a soccer club salary.

J45 said...

It's laughable people are arguing Jake doesn't *deserve* the money Daddy Matt and Amy got in *Jacob's* name. He earned it (whether you think he deserved it or not).

As for Molly, she has every right to complain of being cheated (alongside Jake), but she doesn't seem to want the trouble.

People make the assumption trust funds exist. Yet there is absolutely no evidence to suggest trust funds exist for Jake or Molly (or Jer and Zach in the earlier years, for that matter).

If it was Precious Jeremy James Jesus tweeting he was cheated of LPBW money, the Anneites would be up in arms, going to the media and hurling angry emails at Matt and Amy, and whatever else they would come up with.

Limo said...

Rumor has it Vanessa created a fan account for Jacob on Twitter and is using a bunch of pictures from Isabel's account to fuel her account.
Isabel keeps tweeting about it and she sounds pretty upset, Vanessa is probably just trying to mess with her but it's still funny as heck.

Ashley said...

Limo, why would anyone think it's Vanessa?

I see Isabel and her friend calling the fan account a "crazy bitch" and Isabel implying it's Vanessa. To me it seems like a fan girl and like Roloffs and their friends always do, they insult fans.

There's nothing to make me think it's Vanessa. I've seen most of those pictures publicly on social media.

Limo said...

That account is 100% creepy. It's not a "fan account" it's someone being super creepy. They follow everyone Jacob went to school with and they're using pictures either Isabel has posted or digging deep to find pictures of him.
It's understandable why Jacob would get creeped out or mad, along with Isabel. People should just leave him alone. They don't need to make fan accounts dedicated to him.


You sound like Vanessa herself. You're psycho.

Heather said...

I think it's awful for Jacob to post what he did. The family shouldn't accept what he's doing.

Jason said...

I think it was just Jacob having a temper tantrum because he didn't get what he wanted in a split second.

Rita said...

Isabel sure does like to insult fans. I don't see anything wrong with the fan account and why would anyone think it's Jacob's girlfriend from 3 years ago?

Rita said...

Jacob is a jerk and hope he was ripped off, but I'm with Brenden, I think it's a classic Jacob over reaction

Vivian said...

That account is freaky! a foot picture for the people with foot fetishes? I think Isabella and Jacob are handling something as creepy like that well.
Don't call it a fan account that's a creepy account. Of course she has the right to be creeped out.

Tenlee said...

That account is absolutely creepy and weird. " a foot fetish" and a pic of Jacobs foot????
Isabel and Jacob have every right to be completely freaked out. People should leave him alone.

Rita said...

It's not creepy. I'm not into the "foot thing" but apparently some people are. "A picture of his foot for all the foot fetish fans out there"...I'm kind of like "I don't get it" but i think it's nice for the fan account to post something other people might like.

What happened to Jacob's "Be you" mantra? I guess not if you have a foot fetish, are gay, think Jacob is cute and follow him on twitter or any number of other things that annoy Jacob.

Jacob is without a doubt, an arrogant snob and a jerk, but I have to admit he is good looking. Nothing wrong with the fan account posting pictures.

Isabel is just being a jerk to a fan. I really doubt Vanessa even cares about Jacob after all this time.

Shelby said...

Hopefully "MissJacobRoloff" finds the picture of Jacob unconscious! lol!

Zeke said...

Every thread is Always ruined by Shelby being a cunt.
Can anyone take care of this?

Wright said...

He's a fool kid who thinks the world should bow at his feet and that he's smarter than everyone.

Anita said...

He's such an unappreciative kid. Look at everything he was given. He was given a glorious childhood and all he does is whine and play victim.

Otto Preminger said...

Jacob is not stupid. He has the best GED (good enough diploma) that money can buy. Jacob suffers from the same problem that all the gypsy Roloffs suffer: how to get money without working. Lord Jer at age 25 has mastered this gypsy art. His gypsy brother, little Zack .. . a home owner mind u, attained with a menial part-time job at a soccer field. Nice work Zack, nice work. By now the masses have learned. . this is Oregon, not Calif. . .Matt, the head gypsy got the TLC checks. Yeah, bad bad if ur on his bad side huh Jacob?

Angela said...

It is appalling that Zeke is allowed to call Shelby a vulgar name.

Shelby has every right to voice her opinion on Jacob. While I don't necessarily agree with Shelby every time, I find Shelby to be honest. Shelby has admitted in that she realizes it isn't nice to pray for Jacob to be knocked out or for his misfortune, but God still wants her to feel that way for some reason. I think Shelby has done a good job of explaining her position and why Jacob is such a horrible person who is easy to hate. I appreciate that Shelby contributes here.

Gary said...

The Roloff family should wage war with Jacob. They don't need him any more. If your toe has cancer, you cut if it off to stop the spread of the infection. That's what they have to do with this pathetic piece of garbage named Jacob.

The way he bashes his family and the show is disgraceful.

Katnip said...

"God still wants her to feel that way"???? THIS is why people hate Christians!!!! This exact reason. Come on, don't be fucking ridiculous.
Shelby is rightfully called what she is.

Dana said...

It isn't appalling for Zeke to cal Shelby a cunt when Shelby is wishing Jacob dead.

An awful person gets called an awful person. Oh wel. She is just as bad as Jacob, the one she claims to hate. That's the best part.

Cunt cunt cunt

Rap541 said...

Yeah, enough hang wringing about nasty words and comments, Angela. If you don't like the way the board is moderated, create your own.

Oh right, that would involve one of the Christian crowd having to make more than a minimal effort.

If Shelby has every right to air her opinion on Jacob, and on me, then Zeke has every right to air his opinion on her.

Frankly, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the high school over who Jacob dates to stop (I don't really care, the endless Vanessa/Stephanie/Isobel go arounds sound like their buddies bitching at each other over who has the coolest trapper keeper, and since two of them are exes and it all sounds like high school drama, I wish they'd take it back to twitter) but its not my board.

Rap541 said...

Gary and if you suggest that to the Roloffs, I really bet they would be appalled. :)

Angela said...

Shelby doesn't wish Jacob dead. She admits to wishing misfortune, bad luck and some embarrassment on him brought on by his own actions.

I'm not offended by people like Shelby saying they would find a video of Jacob knocking himself out amusing. I know what they mean and it's harmless. They aren't wishing him dead.

The only thing people have said seriously about Jacob and car accidents is the very serious subject of Jacob and Isabel appearing to text or take selfies while driving or looking like they're high in a vehicle. Yes, people have said they hope Jacob only injures himself and not innocents if he insists on being so reckless. I think most people have that opinion about someone who endangers everyone else's lives on the road.

Rap541 said...

Angela - if it were people wanting to laugh over a video of Jeremy knocking himself out because they hate him and want to see him suffer, would you insist it's harmless?

Yes or no?

You would defend such a comment as harmless and would not ask for it to be removed?

Yes or no?

How is it that you're excusing Shelby wishing misfortune on someone as "God wants Shelby to feel that way" - tell me Angela, how do you know God does want Shelby to laugh with glee at the idea of Jacob Roloff suffering but does not want Zeke to feel Shelby is a cunt?

Maybe God wants Zeke to feel that way, and you shouldn't question it, right?

Angela said...

Rap, I'm not going to judge Shelby. She is a Christian girl working through her feelings and learning how to cope with mean spirited people like Jacob who mock everyone.

Why aren't you praying for Matt and Amy? Regardless of if they stay silent publicly, can't you concede it is extremely hurtful for them to read on social media that their own son is accusing them of cheating him and using him? Where's your compassion for Matt and Amy? Amy already broke down with an apology after Jacob's "used for your parent's ratings" jab".

Shelby doesn't like Jacob hurting people and wants the hurt he causes others to come back to him. It might not be completely right, but I understand what Shelby is thinking. It comes from a good place.

xyz said...

Vivian, that's not even Jacob's foot, lol.

Dustin said...

"That account is absolutely creepy and weird. " a foot fetish" and a pic of Jacobs foot???? Isabel and Jacob have every right to be completely freaked out. People should leave him alone."

Tenlee, why? Jacob is a public figure. By his own choosing now no matter how much he wants to deny it. He has no one to blame now except himself.

Who cares if Jacob is "freaked out"? He's freaked out by a gay kid at school saying "I won't lie, Jacob is very attractive".

That freaked Jacob out. Who cares if Jacob is "freaked out" by a fan account posting pictures.

He makes fun of people and doesn't like his fans. What's new? The thing is, it doesn't matter because he's not in control. He's the one choosing to be a public figure. He could have got off tv, moved to a small town in Montana, stayed off social media and chances are nobody would be talking about or posting pictures of Jacob.

Instead he's chosen to be a reality tv start as his adult occupation. Therefore he doesn't get to complain about the things that come with which includes having girls (and guys) post pictures of him or people express their dislike and criticisms of him.

I'm not impressed with Isabel. She does seem to hate fans. It's transparent that she just says and does whatever she thinks will please Jacob.

Vivian said...

Yes it is, those are his sheets... I've seen them in other photos posted on his Twitter of Luna or Isabel.

Oliver said...

I would like to know what the Roloffs true feelings (we won't know) are about what Jacob is doing to them. Like others have said, he deserves to be screamed at and thrown out of the family.

Rap541 said...

You won't judge Shelby but you will judge Zeke and demand his voice be silenced. Why?

You have no idea who prays and what for, isn't that correct? So when you ask me why I am not praying for Matt and Amy, you are publically judging me. who exactly are you to judge anyone and then insist you know what a good Christian is? Seriously, you're calling someone who openly wants to laugh at someone being *injured* as a good Christian girl.

My compassion for Matt and Amy is coupled with the reality that they forced their children to work and be on a tv in order to provide for the entire family and I don't think its beyond the realm of reason that the money and the treats were mostly pocketed by Matt and Amy. A parent's job is to provide for their children, if Matt and Amy couldn't do it without putting their kids to work to where their young got the pleasure of being called a "Slutty skank" by fans at age ten, then they need to own the results.

What hurt has Jacob caused that you believe justifies his being physically injured? And why, if you won't judge Shelby, do you loudly and proudly appoint yourself Jacob's judge and sentence him to injury justly deserved?

Explain why you are perfectly fine *judging* everyone but Shelby?

Abby said...

Dustin, I think it's hilarious Jacob is so obviously creeped out by gay people liking him. It shows what a fake he is.

xyz said...

Vivian, it's not Jacob. There is a reason why it doesn't show his face. It's not Jacob. I'd tell you how I know, but I don't want to get anyone in trouble. It's just not Jake.

Vivian said...

Get someone in trouble? Lol. Why don't you think it's his foot? Okay???? Like... The same sheets are just a coincidence? Ok.

rebekah f. said...

I fucking agree, Rap.
Leave the Isabel/Vanessa/Stephanie drama in the PAST.
He is choosing to be with Isabel and seems perfectly happy and content. No need to bring up his ex from THREE YEARS AGO.
Matt posted one thing once about her, that's when he and Jacob were actually speaking, and even if his whole family hated Isabel, you really think that would matter to Jacob, who hates his whole family?
Stephanie and Audrey aren't even close anymore so no need to bring Stephanie up???
Jacob is choosing to be with this one person, the drama with Jacob's exes is so outdated and old school.
It's about as important as talking about jeremy's ex. He and Kristen just seemed SO In love, the family loved her so much! Audrey stinks.
Leave it the f aloooone. Jeez!

Bwhahaha! said...

Like Jere... I can't even finish. I'm laughing too hard!

Jeremy's Headband said...

How old was Jacob when the show started? He had no choice about opening his life and development as a child to the public. Remember when Matt said the show would stop if any of the kids didn't want it to continue? I think Jacob acting out in school should have been a huge indicator that the show was doing him a lot of harm. But you know as long as Matt could have his ego stroked while getting cash on top of that who cares!

Jeremy's Headband said...

I think "farmer" Matt spends as much as comes in. Always living just beyond his means. I'm pretty sure his little people accessibility kit business was trashed long ago. I can't see a company hiring him after his many frivolous lawsuits. He needed every dime to live that high on the hog.

Jeremy's Headband said...

Whatever works. He learned to make a fuss until everyone gives in from Matt. Like father like son.

Diana Eggross said...

Id be pretty mad if I were Isabel. That creepy account tweeted a picture of Jacob and Stephanie from like two years ago when she was stalker fan at the farm...

Yikes. I'd be way more hell breaking than Isabel is being right now! Hah!

Sadness said...

I weep for the children of the evil people here. The people that think themselves "good" and "right." Those that wish harm on anyone. I don't want to think about what sort of harm they would inflict if they thought their child did "bad."

Frank said...

What's this fan account everyone's talking about? I can't find it. Link?

NOWmember said...

There's something very wrong with a blogsite that allows posters to call others one of the words that ALL women find utterly offensive, repulsive, and vile. You have made every effort to stir up controversy, and I suppose the latest just validates that you have no boundaries or ethics whatsoever. Ugly people saying ugly things, and bloggers who have been yammering about the Roloffs for a decade applauding. Very disturbing picture.

Rap541 said...

Rebekah - no problem. I have utterly no issue with Vanessa or Stephanie... but I really could care less what games they *might* be playing over Jacob and how Isobel feels about said games because I really don't care about a circle of teenagers acting cray... if any of this is even being perpetrated by ANY of them. And really if Vanessa or Stephanie are that hung up on Jacob... thats on them... and if Isobel feels that threatened.. who cares. I mean, we're talking about teenagers playing at relationships.

Dustin said...

Vivian, if that is really Jacob's feet taken in his & Isabel's bed as you claim....the question begs to be asked....why is Isabel taking pictures of Jacob's feet?

Here's my theory. It can be a few things.

1. "Creepy" fan account person is actually a real life criminal stalker who broke into their place and is hiding in Jacob's and Isabel's closet and comes out to take secret pictures of Jacob's feet....yeah..nah.

2. Isabel has a "foot fetish" herself and likes it. Hey, if she does, I won't judge her. Everybody has something weird they like if truth be known.

3. Isabel is very kind and thoughtful towards Jacob's fans and thought some fans might get a kick out of it and enjoy it. Maybe she is kind hearted and that's her way of giving Jacob fans a gift.

4. Isabel thought it would be funny.

5, She did it for this purpose. To start and use it for a Jacob fan account that she is behind. Maybe Jacob too. Too generate some fan buzz for him since he's obviously after money recently and doesn't have what he wanted.

Jacob tweet got more attention.

Ashley said...

@Dustin It's funny you say that.

I've never understood the whole "foot" fetish obsession some people have. But I don't care what people think. Everybody is a weirdo in some ways I agree. If I had a boyfriend with fans or myself, I would give the fans something they would like. Life is short. Why be a snob?

Tate said...

I think Jacob smokes a joint then gets philosophical on twitter. It's the in thing for college students these days.

Troy said...

Jacob Roloff is the white Jaden Smith. A rich kid asshole. Spoiled brats.

Kyle said...

I have a friend that went to Liberty and he said the kids there said the real reason why Jacob basically quit going to school there was because he was so flipped out by a gay kid named Jeff who said he liked him. Jacob was so bothered by it and that what people would think of him since a gay kid liked him that he couldn't stand going back to the school so he refused to go back.

Remember that when you "pro-gay" people think Jacob supports you.

Ashley said...

Hmmm, geez, I wonder if they will answer any hard questions about Jacob on tonight's "special episode" of LPBW answering questions.

Rap541 said...

Ashley I am sure it will be fairly fluffy in tone.

I'm genuinely uncertain if I will recap the whole two hours... I actually have an early flight tomorrow - Dragoncon is upon us!

Wampascar said...

People on reality shows like the Roloffs and Duggars are not actors and not members of SAG. Their children do not fall under the Jackie Coogan Act.

Ecossais said...

Rap - enjoy your trip. There was nothing worth reviewing out of that 2 hours of drivel.

Jules McKinley said...

Lmao at you. The show was his "job". He was paid as a member of the family.

Jules McKinley said...

Well said. He was robbed of his childhood so his parents could make money on a reality show.

Kelly said...

Jules, it's not a real job. And all Jacob did was whine about it. And he barely participated even though he was getting paid. He got paid for this season? But he didn't even need to sit there for the interview questions. But he'll still be crying about being worth more money.

Kelly said...

Jules? I see you follow anything jacob wants you to believe. You two his party line. "Robbed of his childhood" = Having a life that 90% of kids would have gladly given a lot to have the chance that Jacob did. His please pity me I have it so tough act is really annoying.

raisedinblack said...

Jacob is a pissed off dude, much like his Mom. I always thought Jacob was the cutest Roloff. He was quite opinionated even as a young lad and seemed to have a good sense of righteousness and justice. I think he wasn't the star of the show and he knew it. Zach was never nice to him and Jeremy, who he looked up to, ignored him. Molly was a girl and completely opposite personality. Matt flat out said he couldn't be there for Jacob the way a normal Father could and tried to plead with Jer to fill that position, which he'd begrudingly do for the cameras. He felt it all, because he's that type of person. Getting almost killed by your Dad's pumpkin sling was horrible and then to have Matt bring it right back again next season (as if it was no big deal) must have felt awful. Let's not forget he lost a real Father figure and slowly became more distant. He took a back seat to the awful family dynamics, the constant fighting of his parents. He's a sensitive kid, one that could see through all the b.s. And it did a number on him psychologically. If you knew Jacob outside of that show, I doubt he'd be weird at all. He's very much a deep thinking loner with a penchant for smoking God's gifts. He loves his dogs, his gf, the great wild, he smiles in most of his pics that don't involve "getting paid." Most of his Twitter rants come from a place of concern. He has trust issues and it's obvious why. Let Jacob be pissed. I think things could be worse and sometimes he acts entitled or ungrateful, but I see myself in him and he's a heck of a lot more normal than the other kids. They all think they know it all, that's what really gets me. They have a nice farm and TLC does a great job of making you wish you lived there. The reality of it all is not so enchanting, that's real life and nobody really wants that.

IsPansy said...

Kelley,
Obviously Jacob is part of your 10% who didn't want the childhood he was forced into. Why can your group not accept that not everyone would enjoy being so exposed?

Do we know for a fact that Jacob got money for this season? He said at some point he was going to sign a waiver so thy could show his face if he was around for family events. And what I saw this season pretty much fit the waiver scenario, no talking heads, very little talking and only if spoken to first and very, very few scenes at all.

Ms T said...

A lot of the argument in the comments is that Jeremy & Zach have been benefited more than Molly & Jacob, does anyone know if maybe Molly is being compensated by having her college/rooming paid for by TLC. I know she spent a year in Costa Rica, not sure all the details about that but is that something that she would be responsible for. Or would her day to day life have to been filmed at school to be paid for, just a thought.

IsPansy said...

TMZ has picked up on Jacobs money tweet.

Ashley said...

TMZ and then the Daily Mail in the UK have ran with Jacob's tweet about the money from the show.

It will be a full blown scandal now. Matt and Amy will have some answering to do now.

Greg said...

Why doesn't Jacob man up and explain exactly what he means to TMZ? He's 18. Speak for yourself Jacob.

Christine said...

Jacob is such a little brat to do this to this family. I hope he's happy now that he's brought TMZ down on the family.

He barely was on the show at all. Now he's whining about not getting paid enough? You don't put in the time, you shouldn't get the money.

Did the kid even spend time the last 2 pumpkin seasons filming and with the customers? Nope! Hid in his room, presumably smoking weed?? Now he complains he should have more money. What a greedy ungrateful jerk.

Read the TMZ comments. Most people hate Jacob and see him for the greedy bastard he is.

D. Wood said...

Jacob is a spoiled rotten brat.

Rita said...

Wow, it's about time TMZ latched onto Jacob.

They could have used a better picture of him. Way to go Isabel. At least she could have done was see that they use a good picture of Jacob for his big article in TMZ.

Peter said...

I hope TMZ doesn't let Matt and Amy and TLC or Jacob off the hook.

What exactly is Jacob accusing them of?

How do they defend themselves? I don't think it's possible for them to defend themselves without attacking Jacob and making him sound like a greedy idiot childhood who doesn't understand grown up things.

Abby said...

Ashley, I think the popular opinion among TMZ readers who probably don't even know everything about Jacob like the Spiritswander readers is that Jacob is a druggie who is complaining about money because his "supplier" wants more money. That seems to be what a lot of people are saying or guessing about.

A lot of people are of the mind that Jacob's gripes are unwarranted because he was barely on the show and he doesn't deserve much. He's just greedy and a brat complaining.

Ashley said...

Abby, I would like to know exactly what Jacob is complaining about.

Now he just tweeted "@krazikat55 I don't think you understand, me getting my accumulated salary since Season 1 isn't "others supporting me". It's mine."

So now he's saying he did get the money from season 1 and up. So what is he complaining about? Or did he just tweet that one about getting "fucked" for attention?

The tweet implies he didn't get the money since Season 1 or not much of it. Now he's tweeting he's living off the money he has since Season 1. Which is it Jacob?

Brandon said...

Ashley, I think you might have misunderstood. But I could be wrong too.

The person Jacob is responding to in that tweet said " go to school like the rest of your siblings and stop expecting others to support you."

What Jacob is saying in that tweet "me getting my accumulated salary since Season 1 isn't "others supporting me".

Jacob is saying that's what he "wants" and is not getting it. He wants to get his accumulated salary since Season 1.

The way he worded it makes me think there is a trust fund and all that Jacob is mad about is that he wants it all right now and isn't allowed to access it at 18.

I think that's what this is all about.

Gail said...

What kind of picture is that??????????? Jacob doing drugs and posting pics of it!!!!! What a terrible role model. Get him off tv for good.

Ashley said...

Oh wow, the picture Jacob once posted and then quickly deleted.

The internet never forgets, Jacob. It emerges again just as TMZ has him on their radar.

MS said...

Brandon, I interpreted it like you did in the sense that Jacob hasn't received any money from the show. I do wonder if a trust fund even exists though. Matt doesn't strike me as the type who would think about trust funds -- not because he's intentionally neglectful, but rather he's a spender and lives for the moment. His idea of a "trust fund" for the kids may be the farm (with all the value-add improvements courtesy of TLC money) and all their shiny toys. But hopefully Amy and their financial advisers ensured there were trust funds set aside for the kids. Now that the media is picking up this story, it should be interesting to see what comes out.

Kayla said...

I've never seen that picture before? Where'd it come from? #HowStupidIsJacob?

Ashley said...

Kayla, Jacob posted it several months ago. He deleted it right after posting. I didn't save it but figured it would pop up some time. The Jacob fan on twitter (who Isabel and Jacob are accusing of being Jacob's ex) posted it today.

MS said...

I read the TMZ article after posting. I guess if this quote is accurate, the money is out there in some form:

"Sources connected to production tell us Jacob, like all minors on TLC programs, had his own bank account where his salary was regularly deposited during his 9 years on the show."

But based on what others have posted about Oregon vs California law regarding minors on TV, I do wonder if an account in Jacob's name really does exist.


Ashley said...

WHOA!!!!

The shit is really hitting the fan today! LOL!

It's like all the big time entertainment sites have finally discovered what Spiritswander has been talking about for 8 years. LOL!

Timothy said...

Ashley, seriously, yes.

The flood gates just opened. They now have everything. It's the first time in a long time, maybe ever, that major celebrity gossip sites brought attention to Jeremy's racial slurs.

Rita said...

HOLY FRICK!!!!

Look at what Jacob just did, unintentionally!

I think he just changed their lives.

The Roloffs had been ignored by most of the media and was protected by the media never caring to dig for anything or even report what was right there to be found.

When Jacob gave them a bone by way of his "I'm being fucked out of money" tweet, it shone the spotlight of these sites onto the Roloffs and now they're discovering everything.

I'm sure given the social issues today with all the racial tension, Jeremy's photography companies thinking of using him will love that Radaronline is letting people know Jeremy used racial slurs.

Kaitlyn said...

"Sources connected to production tell us Jacob, like all minors on TLC programs, had his own bank account where his salary was regularly deposited during his 9 years on the show."

MS, so this means Jacob is a liar? Or he's just impatient. He's not really getting screwed. He just wants all the money now and can't have it because it's in a trust. But he implies he's losing it or lost it, not just that it's delayed.

I think Jacob is learning the hard way he better think before he tweets because I think this just blew up in his face.

He seems like a liar and everyone hates him by the sounds of it.

Loud and Mad said...

Jacob needs to grow the hell up! He had a much better childhood than most kids in this country and he's whining about not having more money right now when he barely did anything for it anyway!

Brandon said...

Read what the TMZ guy says. Very interesting. He sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

http://www.tmz.com/videos/0_rln53eqi

He has 2 theories.

1. Jacob is pissed at Matt and Amy. His sources says TLC made regular deposits into Jacob's account during each of the seasons of LPBW. TMZ dude says he thinks Jacob went to Matt and Amy and said "Give me my money now" and they said no and now he's pissed.

2. TMZ dude also says it's possible because Jacob isn't in the show much that Jeremy and Zach have larger more lucrative contracts with TLC and Jacob feels ripped off because they are getting more money than he is ...but TMZ dude said that would because they're a larger part of the show than Jacob so it makes sense.

Denise said...

Brandon, the last part of what the TMZ person said sounds very on point.

"If Jacob isn't around much, doesn't want to participate very much, then he's not going to make as much money as the rest of them".

In that case it would boil down to Jacob being made that his own decisions (not wanting to film) is coming back on him and now he's facing the consequences. He didn't want to participate, Jeremy and Zach did and now he's jealous they are getting more than he is.

That sounds like the real story, in my opinion.

Eric said...

Jacob, who on twitter, says money isn't important and people shouldn't care about it, then cries about not getting his money now and it turns into getting more media attention than he's ever gotten before and now he's known for being pissed off about not getting enough money..from the guy who said money doesn't matter in life...I love it.

On a serious note, yep, this is the dam breaking. More tabloid/celebrity coverage than the Roloffs ever get and they are seeing the skeletons in the closet. In real reality, behind the scenes, not the fake public persona, I think the rest of the Roloffs are LIVID with Jacob for bring all of this on because of his tweet.

Taylor said...

Shelby, I think this is the karma we all wished on Jacob.

He messed everything up for his family with is irrational, unreasonable complaining. It has now EXPLODED into a sea of controversy that they are all going to be asked about for years and will need to address. That won't sit well with the rest of the Roloffs despite whatever they pretend to say in public.

The majority of the people commenting think Jacob is a whining brat just being greedy since he was barely in it anyway and they hate Jacob and now his family is going to be super angry with him for dumping all this on them.

All of Jacob's arrogance and jerk behavior is starting to come back on him.

DJ said...

It was either great or awful timing that all this got the mega attention the day after the show that features the entire family minus Jacob.

CC said...

Hey Jake, psst...see what happens when you listen to Isabel. You've really done it now.

Troy said...

Jacob did nothing to deserve that money he is saying "It's mine". He's so ungrateful. He's done nothing but whine.

oldtimeradioguy said...

Well I did a little research, both Matt and Amy Roloff are worth 4.5 million each. Before it had said combined they were worth 10 million, so I'm assuming now that their divorce is final, money has been split. Each of the children are worth 300,000. Basically 30,000 per season. But I wish when I was 18 I was worth 300,000 it's a nice chunk of change to start a life on.

Jimbo

Nog said...

This is the first I've heard! You mean a sheltered white boy ,whose only exposure to a minority was the questionably legal Mexican guy, spouted racial slurs? I am shocked! The schools he attended must have surely introduced him to other races. If not then his time in LA would SURELY have opened his eyes.

Of course that might be the reason he returned to the farm. Reality is harsh.

Anonymous said...

I don't know if my comment went through. Jimbo I don't think the online net worth estimates are very accurate. You can look up the appraised value of the home and all they own online. You'll also see some hefty mortgages attached. Jacob also said on ask awhile back that his parents made all the kids chip in financially for the farm expansion. This was probably from their trust accounts and those funds are tied up until they sell it or buy him out. The rest my guess is in a trust he can't touch until he is 21. Matt and Amy probably made an exception for the other kids because they went to college and weren't complete wastes of life.

Angela said...

That picture...Jacob is a disgrace.

Anonymous said...

I'm almost positive that picture is from his room in the farm. I think Ive seen others with those Christmas lights hanging. He was getting high while everyone else was filming and then gets mad he doesn't get paid.

Leanna said...

Is Jacob passing out in that picture with the smoke?

Anyway, the best part of TMZ doing this story is Jacob's twitter was in the story. It's fun to see people discover what Jacob is really like. "Wow he has a big mouth on him!"

oldtimeradioguy said...

I've searched for the Roloff farms value and information you speak of and cannot find anything. Can you provide link ?

Rap541 said...

PSAT, guys, you do understand that TLC is NOT actually saying "all minor children have a separate account we pay into" right? TLC. Is essentially refusing to comment at all... And rightly because their contracts basically put all the money in the hands of the parents, to be dispersed to the parents.

"A source at TLC " is someone not willing to actually commit. TLC has never been in the habit of protecting the minors it exploits, they rightly rely on the parents to manage the money. No one at TLC is willing to commit to "we insisted money be put aside for each child" and use their real name. Think about it.

Matt and Amy aren't willing to commit to "Jacob has a trust fund" even though it makes them look good. TLC won't commit to "TLC officially commits that Jacob Roloff was directly paid to a bank account in just his name". The question is why not, if it's true?

Carrie said...

In my opinion, people aren't realizing who is the true trouble maker in all of this.

I think it is all coming from Isabel. Jacob's girlfriend. I think she's using him for fame and money. I think she planted this seed with Jacob that he's being screwed over and she's the one causing all the friction. I think all of these articles in the last few days can be traced back to Isabel's ability to use Jacob and influence him to act how she wants.

Ashley said...

Radaronline just picked up the money story about Jacob with the headline "Little People Family Fued!"

http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/little-people-big-world-roloff-family-feud-youngest-son-jacob-claims-left-out-reality-tv-fortune/

Greg said...

So what is it, Carrie? Isabel just sucks up to Jacob and does whatever HE SAYS? Oh but this time it's Jacob doing what she says. No, I doubt Jacob would do that for ANY girl. Isabel isn't important enough to cause this much chaos for. Jacob wants what is his --- the money he earned from being victim to a reality tv show for years and years. Don't get it twisted. "Isabel forced him to tweet that". Haha yeah right. If anyone wanted money and fame it was his ex Stephanie with the Audrey worship. Isabel isn't trying to suck up to them and weasel her way into the family like everyone else has.
Let the blame fall on who it rightfully falls on - Matt and Amy and their horrible parenting skills.
