Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer: It’s Over!
It appears to all be over for Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer.
The couple, who are parents to a pair of young children and who have been married for fewer than two years, are going their separate ways, according to various media outlets.
Neither side has spoken publicly about the split, but insiders tell People Magazine that Meyer moved out of the family’s Austin, Texas home around Christmas and filed for divorce about two weeks ago.
The sweet photo above, which was also shared around Christmas late last year, is the last social media image we can find of the stars together.
Despite no confirmation from either half of this estranged twosome regarding the alleged break-up, Meyer and Palin have stopped following each other on Instagram.
That says it all these days, doesn’t it?
Meyer did share a video of himself and his children just yesterday, however, making us believe there may not be much bad blood between the ex-spouses.
They share a nine-month daughter named Atlee Bay and a two-year old named Sailor Grace.
Bristol, of course, is also the mother of a nine-year old boy named Tripp.
She sky-rocketed into the spotlight back in 2008 as a result of getting pregnant with him because she was only a teenager at the time… she wasn’t married… and her mother was running for Vice President.
After giving birth to her first child, Bristol eventually ended her relationship with his father, some dude named Levi Johnston.
She became a spokesperson for various conservative causes over the years and even appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
Palin’s romance with Meyer, meanwhile, has been up and down from the beginning.
They got engaged in March of 2015, only for Bristol to then call off the wedding just days before it was scheduled to take place in May of that year.
Just a few weeks later, however, Bristol announced she was pregnant once again. And she didn’t sound particularly happy about it.
“Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one,” Palin wrote at the time, adding:
“When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.”
After she reunited with Meyer, many assumed that he was the child’s father and that Bristol wasn’t aware she was pregnant until AFTER she had called off the wedding.
Hence her less-than-enthusiastic attitude while confirming the news.
But it all seemed to work out for the pair after they got back together, got married and even had another child together.
That was just nine months ago.
“Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be,” Bristol and Dakota gushed after tying the knot, telling Entertainment Tonight:
“We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!
Hard work and God’s grace are the foundation of our new life together. With the love and support of our family, we know we can get through anything.”
Well, maybe not anything, as it turns out.
We do wish both Palin, Meyer and their kids the best of luck, though.
