Fox News is reporting that Bristol Palin, the daughter of Alaska governor and former GOP VP canddiate Sarah Palin, and Levi Johnson, the father of Bristol’s baby Tripp, have called it quits.
From the story:Â
People.com reported Wednesday that sources said the split between Bristol Palin, 18, and Levi Johnston, 19 occurred a few weeks ago, and Johnston confirmed to the Associated Press that he and Bristol mutually decided to end their relationshipÂ ”a while ago.”Â He did not elaborate.
Palin said in a statement to the Associated Press that she is “devastated.”
The young Palin told FOXÂ News’ Greta van Susteren that they intended to get married after they both finished high school.”
People Magazine reports: “The split happened “a few weeks ago,” according to a source close to the couple, but it’s unclear what precipitated it. “It was a mutual thing,” adds the source.
Bristol, the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, spoke with FOX News in February and told Greta Van Susteren that she and Levi â€“ who are parents to 2-month-old son, Tripp â€“ expected to get married after they completed high school.
“It kind of just happened,” says the source, referring to the split. “I thought they would stick it out. But I think they can work together to raise Tripp.”
“I’m not sure what caused [them to break up] â€“ it’s common knowledge,” says another source who knows the family.”
While I’m sad this couple didn’t even loast long enough to get to the alter, all I can think of is how much removing that tattoo of “Bristol” from his ring finger is going to smart when Levi has it done.
