Don’t you ever mess with Mama Palin and her clan of Alaskan misfits.
Two weeks after Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol gave birth to Sailor Grace, her ex-fiancé, Dakota Meyer, is claiming to be the biological father and wants to share custody of the child.
Palin addressed Meyer’s claims about her daughters new baby, criticizing Meyer for fleeing during the pregnancy and showing up seeking custody after the birth.
“For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers [sic] and he has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby,” Palin told ET.
“Paramount to the entire Palin family is the health and welfare of Sailor Grace,” she added, claiming that Meyer is attempting to “save face.”
Meyers filed legal documents on Monday seeking custody, child support, and asserting that he is the biological father of Sailor Grace.
Meyer and Bristol were engaged in March 2015 and were scheduled to get married in May. One week before the wedding, the event was called off and a few weeks later in June, Bristol announced she was pregnant.
Bristol’s rep David Martin slammed Meyer for seeking child support despite being a decorated member of the Marine Corps that has received the Congressional Medal of Honor.
“My values are such that a real American hero doesn’t ask for child support,” said Martin.
When the baby was born, Meyer took to Instragram and celebrated her birth.
“Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing,” he wrote.
