Bristol Palin first caught our attention during her mom's unsuccessful run for vice president in the United States election. Marine veteran and Medal of Honor recipient. They embarked on a whirlwind romance, but their relationship would turn out to be anything but rosy. A wedding in Kentucky was planned Palin would get pregnant soon thereafter, which sparked a messy custody battle. After making the announcement in June that they had secretly gotten married, their wedded bliss was short-lived.
Meyer filed for divorce in early , though no one was the least bit surprised because the two appeared doomed long before they took their walk down the aisle.
From rumors that their marriage and divorce were ploys for Meyer to make some cash to allegations that a secret from his past destroyed their bond, here's the real reason Bristol Palin is getting divorced. Just two months after Meyer proposed to Palin at a Rascal Flatts concert , it was announced that their May wedding ceremony was canceled.
Palin's mom shared the news in a since-deleted Facebook post via People. In an unexpected twist, a little over a month after canceling their wedding ceremony, Palin, an abstinence advocate , announced she was expecting a baby.
I do not want any lectures, and I do not want any sympathy. We may never know the real reason Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer decided to pump the brakes on their wedding, but that bump in the road could be attributed to a scandalous secret that leaked a little over a week before they were scheduled to tie the knot. The friend also accused Meyer of contacting his ex-wife in October , and she politely asked him to "leave her alone and let it go," before bidding him adieu.
Just be honest," she wrote. Due to all of the drama surrounding their canceled wedding, Meyer wasn't even present in the delivery room when Palin gave birth to their first daughter, Sailor! Instead, Palin was joined by her sister, Piper, and a family friend in the delivery room, Radar Online revealed. And, get this, Meyer didn't officially confirm he was actually Sailor's dad until after she was born, calling his daughter the "best Christmas present ever" in a Facebook post.
A months-long custody battle soon followed, and Meyer was eventually granted joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, according to People magazine. But there was another issue brewing When their daughter was born, the baby was given Palin's last name up until she was four months old.
After getting married, Palin got pregnant with their second child and announced the news to the world in December Thankfully, Meyer showed up and was present for the birth of their daughter Atlee pictured. It's just too bad the happy moments between them wouldn't last for long.
Meyer has long been praised for his bravery and heroism while fighting alongside his fellow Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was even invited to the White House to receive the Medal of Honor and enjoyed a cold brew with then-President Barack Obama on an outdoor patio back in But his heroism wasn't doing him any favors when it came to winning over Palin's close-knit family.
After filing for divorce in February , Meyer wanted Palin to cover his "attorney fees, expenses and costs through the trial," Radar Online reported.
A source told the website that Palin's mom was said to be "furious" over his demands. Was the marriage and the divorce all just a money grab for Meyer?
Who knows, but an insider close to the situation told the website, "What's really beyond any reasonable expectation is Dakota's belief that Bristol would EVER give him any money for this divorce! After less than two years of marriage, Meyer pulled the plug on their relationship.
According to People magazine, he filed for divorce using his and Palin's initials instead of their full names, and he noted that they were in the process of separating, citing "discord or conflict of personalities" as the reason that their marriage had gone down the drain. So what exactly was this "discord? There must have been some major problems going down in their Austin, Texas home for the chance of reconciliation to be squashed without any chance of rekindling their romance.
So, at this point, we're not too surprised they stuck a fork in their marriage. Divorce sucks, but, in this case, it's probably for the best. Fans were a little puzzled following the news that Meyer had filed for divorce because the then-couple still carried on as if they were married and head-over-heels in love with one another. A report published by People magazine stated the duo celebrated Easter together as a family, and, by May , they had reportedly rekindled their relationship.
The mutual gushing was beyond sweet, with Meyer giving Palin props for passing her real estate exam and Palin sharing photos on her Instagram Story of gorgeous flowers her estranged husband had sent her. On Mother's Day of that same year, the military veteran wrote a loving tribute to Palin, which read, "Happy Mother's Day bsmp2 Thank you for being a great mother and for providing me with a purpose in life that I could have never fathomed before our beautiful healthy children.
Their reconciliation was just as strange as the rest of the happenings surrounding their short-lived marriage, though, especially since Meyer had reportedly moved out of their family home in December and had even blocked Palin on social media. Following the cancelation of Palin and Meyer's first wedding and the news that Palin was pregnant with their first daughter, Sailor, the Daily Mail made the trek to Meyer's grandparents' home to get their take on things.
When they asked his grandparents about Palin, they gave a surprising response. If you thought that was harsh, Meyer's grandmother Jean threw even more shade when asked if she was looking forward to welcoming a great-grandchild into their family. I have other great-grandchildren," she said. What a savage! If this was how his grandparents felt at that time, we can't even imagine what the rest of his family thought about Palin. Without the initial support of his loved ones, it's no wonder their relationship went up in flames so soon after they finally said, "I do.
A friend of the military veteran's first wife, Cassandra Wain, spoke to the Daily Mail about how much of a nightmare their marriage was. Meyer and Wain reportedly met when she vacationed in Hawaii where he was based for the Marines.
After their wedding, in which none of their family members were invited because they had no clue the then-couple were even getting hitched, Wain reportedly had second thoughts and believed she had made a terrible mistake.
Meyer was reportedly showing signs of PTSD that were troubling to Wain, and, after he was deployed to Iraq immediately following their nuptials, she asked her father for money so she could leave Hawaii and fly back to her hometown in Michigan. Less than two years after getting married, Meyer and his first wife were divorced, and the demise of his first marriage really makes us wonder if PTSD played a role in his failed marriage with Palin, too. Bristol Palin didn't officially acknowledge her divorce until more than five months after Meyer filed the legal documents.
In July , she posted a photo of herself and her three kiddos with a camera crew standing behind them. The caption on her Instagram post read, in part, "I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope that I can help others on their journey. Being that she was a teen mom herself when she gave birth to her eldest son, Tripp, Palin fits right in with the rest of the cast.
Divorce is the pits and being a single parent is tough, but, with her supportive family and devoted fans in her corner, we have no doubt Palin will bounce back in no time. Getty Images. A heap of trouble from the start Instagram.
