Sarah Palin Divorce Rumor Surfaces, is Shot Down

by at . Comments

Rumors of a Todd Palin-Sarah Palin divorce gained some traction today after a website out of Alaska reported that the state's former chief executive and her husband were calling it quits, but further investigation reveals it is not true.

Sarah Palin's spokeswoman, Meg Stapleton, has denied the story by an Alaskan blog that just hours ago claimed to have inside info on an impending split.

On Palin’s Facebook page, Stapleton posted the following rebuke:

“Yet again, so-called 'journalists' have decided to make up a story."

"There is absolutely no truth to the recent “story” (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that Sarah and Todd Palin are divorcing."

"The Palins remain married, committed to each other and their family, and have not purchased land in Montana (last week it was Long Island).”

“Less than one week ago, Governor Palin asked the media to 'quit making things up.' We appreciate that the more professional journalists decided to question this story first before repeating it.”

Sarah Palin may have recently quit on Alaskans, but despite Internet reports, she and husband Todd Palin aren't saying farewell to their marriage anytime soon.

Sarah Palin’s attorney, Thomas Van Flein, also went on record shooting down the divorce story, telling CBS News that reports of a split are “categorically false.”

The initial report claimed that previous affairs by both Palins had led to a deterioration of their marriage, and that the Palins were noticeably not speaking to one another at Sarah's resignation speech in Fairbanks, Alaska, last Sunday.

No word on whether the website that reported the divorce rumor really is "makin' things up," or whether they just received faulty intel from Levi Johnston.


The Palins have never had a satisfying marriage. Both of them are motivated only by media coverage and money--so most people would call it a business arrangement. Tracks isn't Todd's child; Trig isn't Sarah's son. Neither parent has a full time job. Sarah wants to run in 2012 because that would mean that Todd would stay around until she no longer held office. Sarah is closer to her Daddy than she is to Todd and this is the most dysfunctional family that politics in the United States has ever had. Sarah is an angry, bitter person who is vindictive and carries grudges. Most Americans have figured that out--but she is glorified by the sheep who cannot think for themselves. Todd has his hand out and thinks that it is his right to live like royalty--after all, he has to put up with the Queen of Mean. Both Palin parents behave like they are still in seventh grade.


If it came from Levi Johnson, should be totally disregarded that person is taking his IMPORTANCE from telling things he probably knows nothing about, but he sure likes being in the spotlight. I'm really surprised that Todd hasn't taken him out behind the shed,and beat the crap out of him.


Sarah Palin should be flattered that so many people are threatened by her. Why else would they waste their time making fun of her and making up lies? Take in stride, Sarah. Worry when they start ignoring you. They are digging their own grave.


A denial is just that, a denial. It does prove the rumors are untrue, just that they deny the accuracy. Yes they remain married but nothing says they are happy, or if it is just a marriage in name only. Just look at the Clintons. Anyone who has been around a divorce knows it can take years, especially with kids and a multimillion dollar book deal to be split. Technically, they would "remain married" until the final decree.


Hey, if her own PR flack denies it then that's that.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
