Todd Palin Files for Divorce From Wife Sarah; is Using Lawyer Former ‘Teen Mom OG’ Dad Dakota Meyer Used During Divorce From Bristol Palin

“Say what?!”

Former Teen Mom OG star Bristol Palin just went through a divorce— and now her parents are about to embark on one too!

On Friday Bristol’s dad, Todd Palin, filed for divorce from Sarah Palin, his wife of more than 30 years. The Anchorage Daily News– which broke the news of the split– reported that “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife” was given as the reason for the split in papers filed by Todd.

In addition to Bristol, the couple has four other children, but only son Trigg is currently a minor. Todd is reportedly asking for joint custody of Trigg.

“Am I surprised by all this? You betcha!”

Todd apparently took a page from his former son-in-law Dakota Meyer‘s book, as he has hired Alaska attorney Kimberlee Colbo to represent him in the divorce. This is the same lawyer Dakota used during his 2018 divorce from Bristol! 

Sarah and Todd have been married since 1988. Todd was the “First Gentleman” of Alaska during Sarah’s reign as governor from 2006-2009. Since then, Todd has appeared on a variety of reality TV shows, both with and without Sarah, including Stars Earn StripesCelebrity Wife Swap, and Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

“Sing it with me, Mom: ‘All the single ladies…all the single ladies…”

Sarah– who appeared with Bristol on ‘Teen Mom OG’ — has not yet publicly addressed the divorce filing. Bristol has also remained silent since the news broke Monday morning.

  1. I know lots of people are making this political but I think it’s about the couple themselves. I don’t know if this seems to be happening more to anyone else but I’m noticing more divorces after years and years of marriage. It seems like once their kids are older they realize they don’t have anything in common anymore. They could have have just woken up and realized that without the kids at home they had nothing left.

  2. Man, so many downvotes – it’s Sarah Palin! Her word salads and gobbilty goob word speak and phrases gave me a chuckle during her campaign for VP back in 08′. Divorced happens, so no shade, other than the “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife”… after 31 years?!? And *5 kids? (If you don’t believe the rumors about Trig). Geeze, just live in a different house you own you multi-millionaires. But, eh, life was fine as long as both were able to profit of reality TV.

    Get ready ya’ll, I’d bet good money the former Mrs is going to get herself a dating show.

  3. 😜😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    This is hilarious! Sarah must be screaming we divorce my image! I hope she ends up on the swamp with Jenelle! Horrible people!

  4. “Dakota, you got that attorneys number? Cause Sarah can see me russian from her house!!”

    Lol Im srry, I know that was a bad 1 but I couldnt resist.

  5. Only republicans can talk about family values while knocked up and unmarried, divorcing left and right and the odd brush with the law.

    1. And Dems to play happily married couple while the husband is porking interns and partying with Pedophiles, amiright?

  6. I thought Republicans didn’t believe in divorce? My parents haven’t really ever been happily married (>30 yrs).
