Bristol Palin’s Ex Dakota Hasn’t Reached Out To Her Son After Divorce: ‘He’s Crushed’

Dakota Meyer lost his wife and stepson when he divorced from Bristol Palin. In a Teen Mom OG sneak peek, she admits her now-ex-husband hasn’t reached out to her son Tripp.

In the preview, Palin is packing up her 9-year-old son’s room as they prepare to move into a new home.

“He hasn’t reached out to Tripp and Tripp is crushed by it,” Palin, 28, told a producer. “It breaks my heart.”

Fortunately for Tripp, his father Levi Johnston has been involved.

“I’m thankful Tripp’s dad is doing amazing,” she said, adding that he wasn’t around when their son was younger.

“We’ve turned a corner,” she said.

She then admitted of her divorce from Meyer, “I’m feeling relieved. I can get back on my own. I can be a better mom and have more patience and not be walking on egg shells.”

Palin asked her husband for a divorce because he has been struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder. Palin accused him of being verbally abusive, while he claimed she wasn’t supportive.

The couple share daughters Sailor, 2, and Atlee, 1. Despite not reaching out to his former stepson, he has been an active father in their daughters lives, as they share 50/50 custody.
