Bristol Palin calls off wedding amid tabloid rumors
Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer are not getting married as expected.
Sarah Palin's daughter and her beau, a Medal of Honor recipient, had a Memorial Day weekend wedding planned for May 23, but plans fell through after tabloids reported that Dakota had a "secret wife."
The former Governor of Alaska broke the news for her daughter on Facebook:
"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," Sarah stated.
Although, there will still be a party for those who already made plans to attend the festivities.
"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 continued. "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."
Sarah also further addressed the tabloid reports with words from her daughter.
"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," Bristol said. "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."
Bristol ended her message with a thank you, but speculation still continues as to if this wedding will be rescheduled! On Saturday, Bristol posted a picture without her engagement ring.
The 24-year-old also posted a message on Instagram that same day that reads, "Trust in God's timing. It's better to wait a while and have things fall into place than to rush and have things fall apart."
Sgt. Meyer, 26, asked Bristol for her hand in marriage at a Rascal Flatts concert in March. Lead singer Gary LeVox dedicated the band's song "Bless the Broken Road" to the couple, after which Dakota got down on one knee and proposed.
If Dakota and Bristol make it down the aisle, this will be the first marriage for both of them. Bristol has one child Tripp, 6, with Levi Johnston.
