Just six days before she was scheduled to marry Medal of Honor recipient, Sgt. Dakota Meyer, Bristol Palin has announced that they are calling off the wedding. In fact, it was her mother, Sarah Palin, who made the news public, posting the photo and message below to her Facebook page Monday afternoon.
Instead of celebrating the nuptials of the couple, Palin said the two families were still welcome to come together in Kentucky as scheduled to “celebrate life, in general!” An additional note from Bristol, called out the media for promoting “salacious headlines” and “false stories” about what broke them up, but did not provide any further details about what did happen.
Bristol and Dakota couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support of family and friends over the past months while preparing for their wedding. They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held. Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway – and the Palins and Meyers are happily looking forward to still being at “the old Kentucky home” on May 23 to celebrate life, in general! Family members and close friends know they are welcome to share a great bar-b-que on the farm that day. All involved, especially Dakota, Bristol and Tripp, and their parents and grandparents, thank supporters for the love they’ve expressed.
And friends, please see Bristol’s message clearing up rumors that tabloids salivate over:
“Regarding salacious headlines in recent days about “secret wives”, Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago, as any good reporter could and should have disclosed to readers. As usual, false stories and dramatically written headlines begging controversy should be disregarded, and we have faith that our privacy will be respected at this time by those with decency. Thank you! – Bristol”
– Sarah Palin
Considering her experience with Levi Johnston, it is not surprising that Bristol Palin would rather “wait a while” than “rush and have things fall apart.”
