Bristol Palin’s Husband Files For Divorce

People Magazine reports:

Bristol Palin‘s husband Dakota Meyer has filed for divorce, PEOPLE confirms. The couple married in June 2016 and have two young daughters together, Atlee Bay, 9 months, and Sailor Grace, 2. Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, also has a son, Tripp, 9, from a previous relationship.

A source knowledgeable of the situation tells PEOPLE Meyer moved out of their home in Austin, Texas, around Christmas and filed for divorce two weeks ago. Meyer has also blocked Palin on social media. In posts from recent weeks, Meyer, 29, and Palin, 27, are not wearing their wedding rings.

Dakota Meyer was awarded the Medal Of Honor by President Obama. During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton retweeted his demand that Trump issue an apology to the Khan family. No apology ever came.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Tripp’s 9? Damn that little bastards growing up

    • JCF

      OK, OK: let’s confine our mocking to Barstool. Any kids, even hers, are off limits.

      • Reality.Bites

        At least till their first offence.

    • Rex

      I’m sure he has his concealed carry permit.

  • Rocco

    Can’t imagine why…lol. Wow, that barely looks like huh…

  • joeyj1220

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! So much for all her bloviating about the sanctity of marriage. Karma’s a bitch, bitch!

    • The Milkman

      OMG that’s hysterical.

  • ceeenbee

    Oh boy! I see a few more alchohol fueled bastards in bristol’s future.

    • Reality.Bites

      Well naturally she’ll still see her brother Track.

    • geoffalnutt

      Husbands or children?

  • greenmanTN

    They wanted another child but Bristol can only get pregnant when she’s single.

    • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

      I thought it was because Dakota was tired of raising other men’s bastard children.

      I cannot believe Obama would do this to them, but yet he did.

      • The_Wretched

        US “non-paternity” rate is ~10%. It’s pretty common.

      • 🐾vorpal🐾

        Thanks for the awesome laugh!

    • The Milkman

      Now that was funny.

    • Bambino

      How else can she teach about abstinence if she does not offer up her body as a teaching example?

      • jeffg166

        Should we start the pool as to when she gets knocked up again once she is single.

        • Bambino

          Too late. She is probably pregnant with future husband #3.

          • jeffg166

            Getting pointers from Kim Davis no doubt.

        • kmarsh

          Over/Under, 7mo’s 8 days…

    • Strepsi
    • Rick Zajac

      And from a one night stand.

  • BearEyes

    never understood why he married her in the first place.

    • greenmanTN

      Why buy the cow…..

      (Sorry, but in this case it’s true.)

      • BearEyes


    • Bluto

      Cuz the abstinence ambassador accidentally fell on his penis? Repeatedly.

    • Mark Née Fuzz

      Dad’s shotgun after he knocked her up?

      • Bluto

        Now, she never confirmed hubby #1 was the baby daddy #2 although he’s believed to be baby daddy #3.

    • The_Wretched

      Political pressure to legitimize the bastardry. Sarah was going to be president.

      • BlueberriesForMe

        Seems like only yesterday. OTOH, 10 years can be a long time.
        I wonder if her hypothetical presidency would have been better, worse, or the same as Drumpf.

  • Bluto
  • Cattleya1

    Happy valentines Day JMGers!

    • Pilot Nozzle

      Cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Thanks, Cattleya1.
      I cried all the way through it; my husband died in December and this is my first Valentine’s Day alone in 18 years.

      • I’m so sorry for the loss of your husband Pilot. Virtual hug.

      • Cattleya1

        I get teary every time I watch that! I’m sorry for your loss. It is so incredibly painful, losing a spouse. Big hug!

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    Tripp. Atlas Lee. Sailor Grace. Somebody buy that bitch a baby name book before she spreads her legs again.

    • carrot festival

      No, I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for the next one. Hoping for something along the lines of Walmart Supercenter for a boy or Opioid Crisis for a girl.

      • JCF

        You’re so mean—come sit by me!

      • Daniel E. Duclo

        I’m surprised Trip isn’t named Brother Boy.

      • BlueberriesForMe

    • Friday

      You know, I’m really not in the ‘All Names Should be Boring Selections From a Popular List’ camp. Seems odd choices for raving Fundies not to insist on ones that are in their Bible, though.

      • Lizard

        I kinda get Atlee, but I draw the line at Sailor.

        • Jon

          Unless it’s Fleet Week 😀

          • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

            With Bristol, it’s always “fleet week”.

          • Snarkaholic

            Q: What did Bristol’s right leg say to her left leg?
            A: Nothing…they’ve never met!

        • Snarkaholic

          Sailor Loon sounds appropriate…or, if it’s a boy, Sailor Goon.

      • Charlie In SF

        you mean like “Kayleb” ?

        • The_Wretched

          They wanted belyak but it sounded too slavic.

          • BlueberriesForMe

            How about “Kayak”?

      • Acronym Jim

        They worship guns and hunting; hence Tripp, Track, and Trig.

        • David Walker

          But sometimes get lost in the woods; hence Atlas. Fortunately she’s not GeePeeS.

          • ColdCountry

            It’s not Atlas, it’s Atlee. She’s a girl, after all.

          • David Walker

            Atlee? Wut fer hell kinda name izzat?

          • ColdCountry

            Not one I’d ever give a kid!

        • RaygunsGoZap

          Track was named for the needle marks between Sarah’s toes?

        • Snarkaholic

          What about Trich (named after Bristol’s most persistent infection)?
          The kid’s middle name is Candida.

        • prixator

          And, don’t forget “snow machines” (which I’ve always known as snowmobiles).

      • Snarkaholic

        My favorite in the Old Testament was Pe(e?)leg…my whole 3rd grade (Christian) school class laughed uproariously when we read it during Devotions Studies.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Personally, I like the name Pickle.

      • narutomania

        Pickle Palin picked a pack of pungent Parliaments and punched papa in the pooper.

        • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

          —In bed.

        • Menergy

          LMAO again!

    • FAEN

      Next kid will be Zamboni Moon.

      • Marty Pavelka

        I just snorted my coffee!

        • FAEN


        • FAEN

          Atta boy 😉

      • Snarkaholic

        Or Goatse Zagnut.

      • ColdCountry

        Like that would be better – or worse – than Moon Unit?

      • BlueberriesForMe

        That is awesome.

        • FAEN

          Thanks matey 😉

    • Reality.Bites

      Amazon can’t deliver that fast.

      Even on prime.

      Even on Kindle.

    • Chris Baker

      It’s like the list of characters on a soap opera. “Next time on ‘Tomorrow is Never a Stranger’, will Sailor Grace tell Barley Veil about the baby? Will Dakota discover Driver’s dark secret? Will Tripp finally ask Basket to marry him? Tune in and find out.”

    • Dennis McGuire

      Double Wide.

    • The_Wretched

      I thought you were making those names up. You’re not. It’s like the find your porn name joke gone off.

    • ColdCountry

      Atlee Bay, not Atlas Lee. Even worse.

    • ted-


  • ETownCanuck

    Well THAT was short-lived.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      Maybe she’s trying to beat Kim Davis’ record. Now she’ll have to back and marry one of the ex’s again to keep up.

  • netxtown

    he’s got 2 daughters with her. he’s forever tied to her. i don’t think he chose wisely. nasty break.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Being in the same room with a living Palin is never a wise choice.

    • Reality.Bites

      Knowing how Palin-raised kids end up, if I were him I’d file for a restraining order against his daughters now and skip the long line.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Not to worry. She’ll find some way to weaponize the custody fight. He just has to pretend he really really wants them.

    • kareemachan

      Seeing that we don’t know squat about the situation, you can’t say he chose wisely or otherwise.

      • The Milkman

        Oh honey… hoooonneeeeeeeeyyyy…. it was McCain who chose unwisely and foisted this trashy bunch on all of us.

    • ceeenbee

      You’ve got to be kidding. You forgot to put the “/s” on your comment. Right?

      The guy is a war hero and you want him to be tortured on American soil by forcing him live in bristol and banshee sarah’s family?

      • Acronym Jim

        I’m reading netxtown’s comment as the poor choice being made was getting together with Bristol in the first place.

        • ceeenbee

          Well, that would put it in an entirely different light. Thank you for opening my eyes and if that was the actual intent of the comment, I apologize to netxtown.

      • netxtown

        since the two kids are already born – he has already endured the torture and the terror of that snapping snatch. OTOH – even war hero’s will stick willy in a lion’s mouth….

    • Bomer

      My mother and father had two kids together. They divorced when I was two years old and I never heard from or saw my father again.

  • Rex

    On Valentine’s Day let’s celebrate the virtue of “Traditional Marriage”

  • ceeenbee

    Before the un’murican, liberalists jump on poor bristol, I think we need to put the blame for this affront to the sanctity of marriage firmly where it belongs.

    Thanks Obama.


  • Kevin Perez

    Aw, this makes me sad because according to the sacred rules by which Bristol Palin lives, she will have to exist in a life of celebate desperation. She will never experience the joy of sex with the person she may love in the future because it’s her God’s rules.
    What a shame.

  • Friday

    Once again, Palin’s wonderful ‘Christian family values’ upbringing shows its real qualities.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    He did his time. Let the man walk free.

    • he’ll never be free. two of his own plus a stepkid means they’re in his life forever.

      • Reality.Bites

        Sometimes a parent walks away and the other parent prefers it that way. I can easily imagine “career opportunities” keeping her away most of the time and him ending up with real or de facto primary custody.

        • Anne Mckinney-page

          But only if the children are lucky.

        • TominDC

          I foresee tons of drunk dials as well as drunken tantrums on his front lawn.

    • Reality.Bites

      Have we finally settled, as a society, what the penalty for impregnating a Palin should be?

      Levi just had to do porn – and I think it was just soft core at that. Considering that’s now required behaviour of a presidential spouse, he got off a lot more lightly than this one.

    • JW Swift

      I think hes waiting for an opportunity to come over to our team. (evil grin)

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Your poor dick may have been through a lot over the years, but you really don’t want a dose of Bristol.

        • JW Swift

          I think modern science can find a way to clean her remnants off of (and out of) him.

          After that, as long as he asks nicely, I’ll do him.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Medal of On ‘er.

  • CB

    Well! If he’s blocked her on social media, he must mean business.

    • AmeriCanadian

      IKR. It’s the end-all, be-all for millennials.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      The Palin family is responsible for a new relationship status:

      “Not complicated. At all.”

  • Friday’s_cat

    When Bristol filed Jesus burst into tears and the wings fell off all the angles in heaven.

  • geoffalnutt

    She must be pregnant.

    • Friday’s_cat


      • geoffalnutt

        The Palin gestation period varies depending on funding.

  • JT

    Does “spouse having another man’s child” count as grounds for divorce in TX?

    • Jack

      No fault requires only a three year separation with no cohabitation. So, gets to add adultery to her list of sins, if she hasn’t already.

  • Jack

    It’s G-d’s will. At least SHE didn’t file.

    • Baltimatt

      Not for Christans. I Corinthians 7:10-11.

      10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.

      [Emphasis mine]

      • Jack

        The devil you say!

      • OdieDenCO

        I think the non-virgin stoning clause supersedes one Corinthians.

      • Rob NYNY

        In either Luke or Matthew, it says a man can divorce his wife for adultery.

        • Baltimatt

          But Paul came after Jesus and says he’s speaking for the Lord, so Jesus must have been preparing us for the more stringent requirements that were to come. This is, after all, the Holy Inspired Word of God. /s

  • jimbo65

    Uh. And poor Chelsea Clinton is STILL married to her first husband. She’s so behind

    • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

      God have mercy you are correct, and I don’t believe Sasha or Melia are pushing strollers yet, either.

    • trouble94114

      and not a single out of wedlock child. What could she be thinking?

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    If you named my kids Atlee & Sailor, I’d divorce your ass too.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Better that than tattoos. Tattoos are forever.

    Barstool should have gone with the more traditional names…like Atlas Shrugged & Sailor Moon.

    Who has less than two years in the “How Long Till She’s Divorced” pool?

    • Acronym Jim


  • Since she’s a Republican I would assume she’s dumping him for a younger hotter spouse that she’s already fucking?

    • bzrd

      he’s dumping her

      • So maybe HE’S dumping HER for someone younger and hotter. Although she doesn’t seem to have reached a Trump/Gingrich expiration date yet. Maybe he’s over her crazy and her white trash family? *shrug*

  • mikemmiv

    Hope that she can start anew… reinstate her virginity… and get back on the speaking circuit.

    • Vinnie NYC

      At this point I don’t think she’s a virgin by memory either.

  • Bambino

    She must be studying her upcoming role in the biopic of Kim Davis – The County Whore of Kentucky.

    In my fantasy world, Dakota and Levi realized they can no longer deny their attraction and love for each other.

    Til death do us part.

    One of them sure died young.

  • Boreal

    Is she knocked up again, by a different guy?

    • ECarpenter

      Of course she is. It’s what she does. Jesus is fine with it, apparently – no lightning yet, anyway.

  • PlutoAnimus

    Someone on the Hill killed me with this comment:

  • another_steve

    “Atlee Bay” and “Sailor Grace”?

    Are those children’s names or the names of underarm deodorants?

      Atlee Bay is where Jesus walked on water. Sailor Grace is a reference to seaman semen.

            Not me. I’m a married man! Today is Valentine’s Day, which for the 17th time, he neglected.

            What was that sailors address again? I just hate to see an unkempt uniform.

          • ECarpenter

            @Ben – He’s stuck with you for 17 years, and you feel neglected? Neglected would be him forgetting to come home for a few weeks.

          • Ben in Oakland

            Or remembering to. Sometimes, he is a tad, shall we say, DIFFICULT?

        • yes b’y

      They are the street names in trailer parks near the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.

  • Henry Auvil

    Why did Obama do such a bad job raising the Palins?

    • That is what I was exactly thinking. I mean President Obama’s to blame for Track Palin’s Domestic Violence and beating up his father.. Let alone his PTSDs, according to expert Sarah Palin..

  • Mike C

    You know the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Successful parenting.

    • TrollopeReader

      and copious amounts of lipstick ??

    • RainbowPhoenix

      There’s a reason pit bulls were known as “nanny dogs” before the dog fighters noticed them.

    • It takes two to tango, but both of these two right wing idiots seemed to lack coping skills to deal with a marriage. Marriage is tough, and both sides have to learn to compromise, besides learn not to quit after a huge disagreement.

    • Snarky

      Pit bulls don’t have opposable thumbs so they can’t hold a Big Gulp.

      • Mike C

        OH NO! The Deep State got to the pit bulls!

  • LeeCMH
  • TrollopeReader

    I feel sorry for the kids. First, Ms. Abstention forgets how kids are conceived. Second, the husband did the “honorable” thing , but went into the family eyes open. Hope he gets the kids.

  • Jefe5084

    ooops someone is preggers again with some other guy’s sperm.

    • The_Wretched

      Which would be fine were that family not 3 kinds of messed up on JesusPreachin.

  • Gerry Fisher

    OMG, you folks cracked me up with these comments. “There’s blood on the blog this morning!” 🙂

  • Nic Peterson

    Dear Dakota,

    Mama Grizzly tried to wash the stink of her poor parenting off in the bloodshed represented by your medal of honor. I am sorry that you were used in such a way and hope that you can heal out in the real world where free thought and critical thinking are skills to be honed. You have demonstrated some abilities. What will you do next?

  • leo77

    Moved out in December and blocked her on Facebook—no acrimony there.

    • Some people do this as a way to cope, and not be tempted in seeing what exes are doing. However for soon to be divorce spouse, there is pretty strong reaction..

  • Hank

    Who the hell cares about ANY of the Palin White Trash???

  • RainbowPhoenix

    I hope he gets custody of their daughters.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Kevin Andrews

    There is evidence of rudimentary Intelligence. Dumping the (pick your favorite identifier) demonstrates self-preservation at least.

  • You know what? Good for her. Hopefully she comes to her senses and realizes she doesn’t need a man in her life!

    • Ben in Oakland

      Not when she can have ten.

    • Don’t you mean good for HIM…he’s the one who filed for divorce. Maybe he’ll realize he doesn’t need a woman in his life…

    • yes b’y

      Why did you change your troll name Beth?

  • TexasBoy

    Next up following divorce: Bristol Preggers again, with twins, she chooses unisex names Twinkle and Tawdry.

  • Ninja0980

    I feel sorry for the children who have a worthless piece of trash in the form of their mother and grandmother as role models growing up.

    • Hank

      The State of Alaska has GREAT Social Welfare programs…. so I hear!! Perhaps they will intervene???

  • Daniel E. Duclo

    Has anybody done a DNA test on Trip? I bet he is full Palin. These kinds of families tend to keep a single blood line.

  • twb6yz

    No surprise. I think at one point he postponed or originally called off their wedding. Never a good sign.

    • I think she called it off. I wouldn’t be surprise that much of the arguments was where they were living. She seems to be out fo her element living outside of Alaska, but I am guessing, they both were fighting over money..

  • boobert

    ” go back to Babylon you whore ! ” lol

  • TampaZeke

    He didn’t know that this relationship was going to shit 18 months ago while they were still creating babies?

    It really pisses me off when people in failing relationships keep creating children.

  • Ben in Oakland

    You could have asked any of us about Bristle, Mr. Mayer.

    I’d love to have a pun about Bristol Mayer, makers of Alka seltzer.

  • BeaverTales

    She married him as a prop. The Medal of Honor was meant to impress her friends and family. He married her probably for the very same reason. Too bad the kids will have to grow up in a family continually at war with itself. Poor role models in childhood tend not to lead to stable relationships in adulthood.

    • ted-

      Yeah, but at least no one is gay in that mix. Those nasty gays. /s

  • teedofftaxpayer

    Now who would have saw that coming? I think he had to get out of that family to keep his sanity.

    • FelineMama

      I don’t know why, but, sometimes it takes a yr. or two. This one took longer than I would have guessed.

  • JDS

    So much for their “christian” marriage. I guess he got tired of fucking a big empty hole.

  • JWC

    As these straight people think Gay people should not get married for whatever reason The Palins are solid proof why straight people shouldn’t at all

  • TrumpToupee89

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Palins!

  • andrew

    Courageous enough to win the MOH, but not able to survive the Palin clan.

  • SDG

    More of those “Christian” values.

  • Deviancy Behavir

    Atlee Bay, Sailor Grace? I’m glad they’re getting a divorce, before they had a boy and named him Fisherman’s Wharf. lol

  • JIM W

    Bristol will probably get custody and will live off any alimony and child support. We know she won’t take a job unless it’s high profile television or executive positions.

  • 🐾vorpal🐾

    “Atlee Bay and Sailor Grace”

    I feel like I should be surprised that Bristol got a book about the navy mixed up with her book of baby names, but I’m really, really not.

    • Gianni

      Makes one wonder once again just WTF is wrong with these people. Parents who like to appear cutesy and clever by saddling their kids with silly-ass names.

  • txstevo

    Can’t we just the whole family on an island way out in the Aleutians?

  • KevInPDX

    Austin is too fun a town to allow a Palin to live there. Lotsa cute boys n men in Austin. Check your Grindr or Scruff apps. Just saying.

  • Gianni

    What happened? Did the Lord speak to him in a dream and he realized he was living in a nightmare?

  • Macbill

    Bristol Palin can still have a herd – consider OctoMom’s strategy.
