So much for that amicable divorce, huh?
When Dakota Meyer filed to legally split from wife Bristol Palin in February 2018, both sides said all the right things.
They said they still loved each other and their kids would always be a priority and yadda, yadda, yadda.
But then Bristol was cast on Teen Mom OG and she needed to create a bunch of drama in order to justify this hiring and… well… here we are.
Viewers recently witnessed Palin and Meyer talk openly about the latter’s PTSD and how it affected their marriage.
On an episode of this MTV hit, they agreed to break up.
But then Palin recorded a video for the network that implied Meyer was a deadbeat dad; Meyer took MAJOR exception to it; and Palin clapped back in an interview with Radar Online.
Scroll down for a summary of what has become a very ugly feud, including Bristol’s new and very pointed comments:
I Was All Alone…
In a video meant to promote Teen Mom OG just this month, Bristol summed up her relationship with Meyer as follows: “I got engaged and pregnant within a month. Planned a wedding. And I was like, ‘I can’t get married.’ Called off the wedding. Went through the whole pregnancy by myself. Friggin Sucked.”
She Said She Felt Guilty About It, So…
“I got back together with him. Got married right away. Had another baby right away. And then we got divorced just recently.” (The couple has two daughters and Palin has a son from a previous relationship, too.)
Meyer was aghast over Bristol alleging she went through the pregnancy by herself, implying that Dakota ditched her. He wrote on Instagram in response that Palin called off the wedding and: “I reached out to her before Sailor was born and asked what the plan was to co-parent. She told me to go through the courts to establish paternity.”
This Was All Her, Meyer Explained
And it gets even worse, he says. Bristol shut him off to such an extent that “I found out my child was born on Twitter,” adding: “Can you imagine being a dad and not being allowed to be at your child’s birth? She denied my paternity until it could be proven, at which point Sailor was born.”
Eff You, Bristol!
“For Bristol to state that Sailor didn’t have a dad is laughable,” Meyer continued. “What really happened is Bristol kept our daughter from having a father present at birth and until the courts ruled that I was her father.”
And Now… Bristol Responds!
This feud has turned so very vicious, which is tragic when there are three kids involved. Palin has replied to Meyer’s latest remarks in an interview with Radar Online.
