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.
