Sarah Palin’s daughter breaks off engagement – again

She loves him and he loves himself

Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol has pulled the plug on her fiance Levi Johnston for the second time.

Only last month the pair were announcing their re-engagement to the world, but now Bristol Palin says “It’s over. I broke up with him.”

She said Johnston told her on the day they announced they were engaged again that he might have fathered a child with another teenage girl.

Palin and Johnston already have a baby son; they first separated last March, shortly after the birth.

The Palin family was thrust onto the national stage in 2008 when Republican presidential candidate John McCain picked Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate.

During that campaign, it was announced that Bristol Palin, then 17, was pregnant and that she would marry Mr Johnston, an unemployed former high-school hockey player.

Their son was born in December 2008, shortly after the election, but they split up in March 2009.

Then they announced on 14 July that they were engaged again, despite not having the approval of their parents.

Bristol Palin said regarding the break-up that the “The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but [I] come to find out it was that music video mocking my family,” she said. “He’s just obsessed with the limelight and I got played.”

Mr Johnston has appeared frequently on television criticising Sarah Palin and has courted attention by posing nude in Playgirl magazine.

In a statement released to People magazine, Mrs Palin said she hoped her daughter would move forward “with her same forgiving, gracious, optimistic spirit, but from henceforth she’ll know to trust but verify”.

Ok, got that Sarah – I think? As for Levi Johnston, he is scheduled to die in a hunting accident sometime soon.

Isn't a week a long time in the Palin house? Maybe third time lucky for Bristol.
