Jacob Roloff says he was molested by former Little People, Big World Producer


In an Instagram post, Jacob Roloff claims he was molested by Chris Cardamone, a former Little People, Big World producer.  According to him, he first started contemplating about a statement when the producer texted him years later in November 2015. As for why he waited until 2020 to share, Jacob said, "I choose to disclose it now as it remains a traumatic memory that needs to be exorcised of any further power over my development."
The producer, named in his statement, worked on the show from 2007-2010 & co-authored a cookbook with Amy Roloff.



When he shared his story on Instagram, many family members showed him support, including his mom. "I love you forever and always Jacob," Amy Roloff shared in the comments section. "I'm proud of you. Now you don't have to feel alone and carry this around anymore."
Matt Roloff, his dad expressed that he's "very proud" of his son for coming forward.
His brother Jeremy’s wife, Audrey Roloff, commented, “'Asking harder preliminary questions,’” she shared. “Love that line. Hate that you had to live through this Jacob.”
Jacob's wife Isabel Sofia added, "Proud to know you, proud to love you, proud to be your wife."

TLC's reply to the allegations: “TLC was just informed about an alleged encounter that occurred years ago involving a third party connected to the production of Little People Big World,” the network said in a statement to TODAY.
“We are saddened and troubled by this very serious allegation, and TLC will work cooperatively with the authorities. Our main focus remains on supporting the Roloff family during this very difficult time.”
