Bristol Palin Splits From Her Baby’s Father

12 Mar 2009

Three months after having their baby, the controversial couple split

It was the scandal that rocked the American Presidential elections, when Vice-President wannabe, Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter Bristol revealed she was pregnant by her high school sweetheart, Levi Johnston.

Now two months after the birth of their son Tripp, it’s been revealed that the couple have split, with Levi announcing “it was a mutual thing” and happened "a while ago".

The 18-year-old told reporters in February that she was planning on marrying Levi after they had both completed high school, but it looks now that she’ll be raising her son alone, with friends saying the couple will “work together to raise Tripp."
