Sarah Palin may have be relocating to Arizona to set up a hub from which to run for president next year ... and/or to keep tabs on her daughter.
The politician is reportedly furious at the fact that Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey, who met on Dancing with the Stars last year, are in a relationship.
Bristol and Kyle are set to appear in a reality show on the BIO Channel, chronicling their efforts to set up a charity alongside Kyle's brother, Chris.
Reports say the couple's growing relationship sparked the idea for the show - and to say Sarah Palin isn't pleased would be an understatement.
She is convinced it will affect her family's reputation, as Bristol is on the rebound from her ex-boyfriend, Alaskan pipeline worker Gino Paoletti.
Before that, she had volatile relationship (and baby) with Levi Johnston.
A source said: "Sarah is furious at Bristol for going so quickly from man to man" and is doing her best to put the kibosh on the relationship.
That meddling has put a frown on Bristol Palin's new face.An insider said: "Bristol told Sarah: 'Back off and let me lead my own life!' She doesn't agree with her mom's politics or her controlling ways."
This feud has apparently been escalating for awhile. Bristol reportedly banned her mother from her new home in Arizona after a huge fight.
The topic? Gay marriage. Bristol has become increasingly liberal since she moved to Los Angeles to appear on Dancing with the Stars last year.
"Bristol is completely rebelling against her mother," a source said. "She's experiencing life outside of Alaska and away from Sarah at last."
"She has realized how sheltered and programmed she was."
As for the seriousness of Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey's relationship, it's somewhat unclear, as they've been quite guarded about it publicly.
Kyle told a reporter he only keeps in touch with Bristol "every now and then" as the couple are trying to keep their burgeoning romance secret.
