Bristol Palin Addresses, Doesn't Explain Non-Wedding Says it's been 'a painful time' By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted May 27, 2015 8:27 AM CDT 39 comments Comments In this July 27, 2012 file photo, Bristol Palin attends the "Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" panel at the Disney ABC Television Critics Association session in Beverly Hills, Calif. (Photo by Todd Williamson/Invision/AP, FIle) (Newser) – Bristol Palin broke her silence on Facebook yesterday, addressing the calling off of her wedding to Dakota Meyer just days before it was set to take place. The blog post she linked to, however, doesn't explain much. "I’m sure you’ve seen this has been all over the media, but this is a painful time for family and friends and I would just really appreciate your prayers," she writes. "I know God’s plan is greater than anything else, and Tripp and I are in Alaska beginning to rebuild our lives under much different circumstances than we anticipated." As the New York Daily News notes, days before Sarah Palin announced her daughter's wedding was off, news broke that Meyer got married to someone else back in 2008, when he was 19. But Bristol claimed to have already known about that and said Meyer was divorced from his previous wife, though the Daily News couldn't find evidence of divorce papers. Some sort of party was still held on the day of what was supposed to be the wedding, but as Radar reports, Bristol didn't actually attend.
