"He was miserable on set and would cry," a production source previously told

His 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 of Dancing With the Stars. He would've made up to $130,000 in total if he made it to the finale.

In a sneak peek, mom Bristol brought her two daughters with ex-husband Dakota Meyer, Sailor and Atlee, to her son's practice.

"You guys!! Full circle right now," she captioned the photo. "2012 to 2018. So proud of my boy."
