“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!” – Sarah Palin, posting this afternoon to her Facebook page.
On Friday, RadarOnline uncovered a dark secret the 24-year-old’s fiancé had been hiding – a wife! According to a marriage certificate obtained by Radar, Dakota Meyer was married to Michigan-based Cassandra Wain in 2008. While his lawyer has since confirmed a divorce — reportedly finalized in 2010 — the logistics of Meyer’s first marriage remain mysteriously unclear. In a long post on Facebook, Wain’s sister Raelyn Marie criticized Meyer for hiding his past from the Palins and involving Wain unnecessarily. Less than a day later, however, Raelyn and Cassandra both deleted their Facebook profiles. As Radar previously reported, Bristol and Dakota were set to tie the knot this very week. Interestingly, Bristol has traveled back to Alaska while Dakota remains in Kentucky. According to recent reports, Bristol has even been spotted without her (fairly large) engagement ring.
