The Medal of Honor recipient posted a lengthy statement on social media, and explained his side of things during the breakup with Palin. “Teen Mom OG” premiered last week with Palin as the newest star, and during the most recent episode she chronicled how her two-year marriage was at a “breaking point” because of Meyer’s PTSD associated from time serving in Afghanistan.
“Yes, we got pregnant right after our engagement. We planned a wedding with our families and friends and Bristol decided to leave me a week prior,” Meyer wrote.
He claims he tried to establish a co-parenting plan with the reality star before their daughter, Sailor, was born, but says she refused to work things out and made him go through the courts to establish paternity.
When it came time for Sailor to be born, Meyer says, “I wasn’t invited to the birth and found out my child was born on Twitter–can you imagine being a dad and not being allowed to be at your child’s birth?”
He says for Palin to go on national television and claim that their daughter didn’t have a dad is “laughable,” adding his two children with Palin will always have a dad.
