The Palin has had more than their fair share of bad news lately, so this is sad to hear.
Dakota Meyer, the youngest ever Medal of Honor recipient, has filed for divorce from Bristol Palin after less than two years of marriage.
Dakota Meyer has filed for divorce from Bristol Palin a source tells DailyMail.com.
The veteran filed paperwork two weeks ago according to the source, and move dout of the couple’s Austin home around Christmas.
The couple were married in a private ceremony back in 2016, a little over a year after calling of their first wedding just days before the ceremony.
They have two daughters, 2-year-old Sailor and Atlee Bay, who was born back in May. Bristol, 27, also has a 9-year-old son Tripp from her relationship with fiancee Levi Johnston.
Dakota also blocked Bristol on social media says the source.
Yikes. That sounds dramatic. I hope for the sake of their children they can work out their differences.
They’ve had a complicated marriage from the start.
The couple had planned to wed over Memorial Day Weekend in Dakota’s home state of Kentucky back in 2015, but the wedding was called off at the last second.
That December, Bristol gave birth to the couple’s daughter Sailor Grace.
Six months after she announced that birth, Bristol and Dakota surprised everyone by revealing they were married.
Dakota had first revealed he and Bristol were back together just days prior with a photo he posted on Facebook and Instagram, which showed his former fiancee wearing a diamond ring.
‘On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences,’ wrote Dakota.
‘On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma.
‘So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.’
Things got messy during their first break up.
Dakota – who is the youngest person ever to be awarded the Medal of Honor – met Bristol in May 2014 during filming of Sarah Palin’s Sportsman Channel show Amazing America.
The pair got engaged during a Rascal Flatts concert in Las Vegas in early 2015, planning a wedding in his native Kentucky.
But less than a week before the ceremony, Bristol announced the wedding would not take place and instead of tying the knot she set off on an RV trip in Alaska with an exotic model.
A month later she announced her pregnancy, although she initially refused to say whether Dakota was the father.
She admitted that her second out-of-wedlock pregnancy was ‘a huge disappointment to my family’.
‘I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy,’ Bristol said.
‘Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going on.’
Sailor Grace, was born on December 23, 2015.
The couple went through a custody battle after the birth, with Sarah Palin shaming her now son-in-law when he asked for child support in court papers, but managed to come to an agreement in the past two months.
Sarah told Entertainment Tonight in a statement after learning about Meyer’s child support request: ‘For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers [sic] and he has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby.’
She then said that Meyer was just trying to ‘save face’.
Bristol’s rep also released a statement, saying: ‘My values are such that a real American hero doesn’t ask for child support.’
So yeah, I hope that now that they have grown up a bit and have these two little girls together they’ll be able to set aside their differences for the kids.
Either way, this is sad to see.
