'Seeking Sister Wife' star Bernie McGee died at the age of 41 on June 15, 2019. He suffered a heart attack while out riding his motorbike. Like most deaths, his passing left a void in the family that can never be filled.

When Bernie had started to feel uneasy, he called wife Paige to come and get him. But by the time she arrived, it was too late, though the medics were trying to revive him. Bernie leaves behind two children, and unfortunately, a truckload of expenses and a legal mess.

TLC's 'Seeking Sister Wife' follows couples who believe in polygamy. The McGee family is no different. After their Mississippi house burned down, they were seriously considering the option of bringing in another wife to the mix. But that plan was put in the backburner because of Paige's jealousy issues, which she admitted.

But troubles didn't leave them. In March 2019, Paige and Bernie were arrested and charged with stalking. Even though the couple was let go in a few hours, it was quite the harassment for the parents who were more frazzled about their children having to watch them being taken away. In the affidavit obtained by Starcasm, Patrick Marble and Nicki Smith (Paige's brother and mother) said Paige and Bernie repeatedly called them.

It did leave Paige shattered but after she had processed and accepted Bernie's death, she wrote an emotionally charged Facebook post where she blamed Patrick for Bernie's sudden demise. "He did this! Patrick’s constant lies and attacks against us caused this," Paige wrote on the social media platform, according to Screenrant. "Patrick and my mother having us arrested for not doing a damn thing wrong did this! We were financially put out for having to hire lawyers, investigators, and missing work for this bullshit," she added.

In her lengthy note, she recalled how Patrick had once admitted that he wouldn't stop until the couple was fired from the show and so he would continue bullying and harassing them. "Bernie has been under so much stress and the stress of going to court this coming Wednesday with fear of 1 year in jail wore on Bernie. Bernie was so upset the day we were arrested because our sons had to watch us being taken away," she further elaborated and ended her rant with: "Patrick Marble… YOU KILLED MY HUSBAND AND I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL.. And you better stay the HELL away from me and my family."
