The insider added how grandma and former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin “was the one that brought him to rehearsals, not Bristol.”
According to reports, Tripp got a payday of $50,000 for signing up for the ABC spinoff. He would’ve made up to $130,000 in total if he made it to the finale. DWTS Jr. is pre-taped and will premiere on October 7 on ABC.
During the MTV Video Music Awards, a sneak peek clip played of the 27-year-old mom talking to Sarah. “I was a teen mom. My life is not perfect at all,” she said, as her mom responded, “Amen!” Bristol then said, “I want to do what’s best for my kids.”
