According to a new report, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson – the family member whose entrepreneurial spirit made the reality show a success – is increasingly hungry for the spotlight, In Touch magazine claims, and his family believes he’s gone too far.
“When the family is resistant to Willie’s ideas, he says they don’t see the big picture,” one source explains.
“The truth is, they just don’t care as much.”
Willie Robertson has spear-headed deals for books, a Christmas album, and more, and still “wants them to build a bigger empire,” says the source, but the rest of the family is increasingly wary of the spotlight.
Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson admitted he wanted the show to “go on without me,” and according to In Touch magazine, the younger generation, Willie’s brothers Jase and Jep want out too.
Jep Robertson and his wife Jessica “fear the show will damage their marriage,” the source claims.
But for now, it seems, the Robertsons are willing to go along with Willie Robertson’s grand schemes.
“When the family gets overwhelmed by the attention, Willie talks them off the ledge,” a source explains.
“He’s the force behind all of this.”
