He wasn’t featured as much as the main cast, but eventually the show covered him filing for the couple’s divorce during the fifth season of the series in 2010. After 11 years of marriage, Simon accused Tamra of infidelity, and being abusive. He also documented how the children’s mother would be neglectful and forget to feed or bathe the children. Simon also opposed the fact that their three children are being shown on television. When the papers were filed, he opted to not pay any spousal support and the two went back and forth even fighting on who should keep various things like the family dog. He actually ended up in prison for a short time due to being accused of domestic abuse. However, after their eldest daughter opted to live with her father, the couple have a 50/50 custody agreement over their children.

Regardless, Barney’s social media has shown signs of popularity, with Twitter followers extending to over 20,000.
For Simon’s personal life, he’s now shied away from the public eye, especially television after their divorce. He continues to work for the car dealership and his net worth steadily rises as well. Through social media, it was confirmed that Simon is now dating someone named Kay; they have been together since 2010. Tamra has also since moved on and re-married.
