The Little Couple has been missing from TLC since 2019, which has raised worry that the reality stars divorced. Since leaving reality television, Jen Arnold and Bill Klein have been focused on their families and different occupations.
TLC’s season 12 in 2019 was the last time the Klein family was chronicled, and despite tremendous anticipation for its return, no release dates have been provided. Rumors spread that the couple had divorced, so here’s a 2023 relationship update.
Did the Little Couple Get Divorced?
Jen and Bill have not divorced. On April 12, 2023, the pair will celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. Bill, 49, paid respect to their important milestone with a sweet Instagram post. He wrote on Instagram-
Happy anniversary to my one and only @jenarnoldmd … what a remarkable 15 years it’s been… and yet you continue to surprise me, inspire me, love me and care for me. I can’t thank you enough for each and every story we’ve created together and all that we have yet to create. Also, I noticed it’s orchid hunting season… congrats on your first kill! #iloveyou @jenarnoldmd

Divorce rumors first surfaced in early 2022, causing Jen, a neonatologist, to respond on Instagram. She reportedly said in 2022 before announcing their quick trip to New York for her hip revision surgery.
“I don’t know, there are some rumors that Bill and I were no longer together,” she added. “No, we absolutely together, and we’re doing well, and we’re thankful that the move has gone well, and we’re excited about new schools, and new jobs, and just a whole new town in this adventure.”

What Happened to Their Show?
Although there have been no new episodes of The Little Couple since 2019, the program has not been officially canceled. The Sun said that Discovery Communications renewed the trademark for the TLC show in March 2022, but no further advances have occurred.
The Kleins’ involvement in the litigation between reality producer LMNO Cable Group and Discovery Communications may have caused the show to be postponed.
After LMNO launched a $7 million lawsuit against Discovery in 2016 for allegedly attempting to “steal” The Little Pair, the pair sought contingent compensation.
According to court documents, LMNO’s former accountant manipulated company records as part of a “long-running fraud and embezzlement scheme.” LMNO then accused Discovery of conspiring with the accountant to seize control of The Little Couple and “put LMNO out of business.”
Discovery responded with a counterclaim, alleging that an LMNO “whistleblower” showed the corporation had been “systematically defrauding and victimizing Discovery.”
Attempts were made to gain additional information from LMNO, according to court records, but the production firm reportedly “stonewalled, delayed, and frustrated Discovery’s efforts.”
Under the terms of their co-production agreement, Discovery can commission shows and pay for production costs if LMNO is unable to fund its half, although the latter will “own all rights for those episodes ‘throughout the world, in perpetuity.'”
In 2018, the two parties reached a settlement agreement, and in 2020, a judge dismissed the Kleins’ fraud and conversion charges. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair failed to provide evidence that they were aware of the “fictional financial books as part of the alleged fraudulent scheme.”
