The drama started when Meyer went on Instagram live before the episode. In the video, he claimed Palin filing for divorce because of his post-traumatic stress disorder was "convenient."

When a fan asked how he feels seeing himself on television, he hinted that he only joined the show to get custody of their daughters Sailor, 2, and Atlee, 1. He responded, "I hate it but I had to in order to get my kids."

He then backtracked and praised his ex-wife. "Bristol made the best decision ever by sticking to divorcing. I thank her for that. She was right we are happier without each other."

Although Palin called him an "incredible" father, she slammed him when she started to receive backlash from fans. "Dakota moved out of our home more times than I would ever like to admit," she wrote. "He got an attorney. He filed for divorce. Wait did you read that? He filed for divorce. And he kept coming and going based on what he thought was best."

She continued, "I did not ask for a divorce, but I did look at my children, and knew the marriage was NOT what was best for them. Just because the picture you see painted is ME finally putting my foot down, to end the back and forth, does NOT mean I didn't give my marriage and Dakota everything I had in me."

On last night's episode, Palin decided to end her tumultuous marriage. "We've tried for years to make this relationship work, but we're at a breaking point," Palin told a producer. "I'm resentful that he can sit here and call me these names, 'You're a b***h.' I wake up every morning, 'What's his mood going to be like today? What am I going to do wrong today? What's going to trigger him?' I live my life on eggshells. Everyone in this house does. Even the kids, for sure."

Meyer explained how he wishes she were more supportive through his battle with PTSD. "I love Bristol, but you can only do that for so long and not get it back," he said. "If someone tells you they don't want to be there for you or they aren't strong enough to be there for you… It's hard for me to accept. I want a home where I have support. I just want peace."
