A pair of “off-grid” parents who became famous after allowing their child to urinate on live TV have been evicted from their home.
According to The Daily Mail, Matt and Adele Allen, who once asked for donations to help fund their family’s fun, carefree, “off-grid” lifestyle, have been evicted from their home following an argument over a stroller.
The Allens shocked the world last year when they appeared on ITV’s “This Morning” with their two young children.
During the appearance, one of the children urinated on stage as the parents sat on the couch and did nothing.
After the show, the Allens were branded as terrible parents and their children were called “feral” by online trolls.
At one point, Matt and Adele were even reported to law enforcement for child cruelty.
“Viewers were appalled, calling our children "feral" and "out of control",” Adele said shortly after the incident.
“Vindictive trolls reported us to social services. "Come in", I told the social worker when she made a home visit. "I’ve nothing to hide’,” she added. “She left, satisfied they were happy and healthy.”
In a new Facebook post, Adele has revealed to friends that she and her family have been evicted from their one-bedroom apartment.
“So we are being evicted due to certain resident's concerns over their insurance and our pushchair occasionally drying out in the hallway so it doesn't cause damp in our small flat,” Adele wrote.
“How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything,” she added, along with a photo.
The Allens do not take a traditional approach to their children’s upbringing, resisting modern medicine and schooling.
When September came, I didn't drop Ulysses at the school gates like other mums.
“Instead we spent the day foraging in the garden. I was delighted when he pulled up a handful of mint and chewed on it happily,” Adele said. “I smiled at Matt, "Being out here in the fresh air is much more inspiring than being in a stuffy classroom."'
The pair do not discipline either of their children, instead hoping their kids will grow up to be free spirits.
According to The Daily Mail, Adele came under fire last year when she admitted that she breastfed her son Ulysses until he was 5.
Last year, the family made headlines once again when they begged for donations to help fund their “off-grid” lifestyle in Costa Rica.
