Palins deny divorce rumors
Despite the flurry of internet rumors over the weekend, Sarah Palin and former “First Dude” Todd Palin are not getting a divorce, says their spokeswoman via Sarah’s Facebook page.
“Yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story. There is no truth to the recent ‘story’ (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that the Palins are divorcing,” posted spokeswoman Meg Stapleton.
“The Palins remain married [and] committed to each other and their family,” she said.
The blog AlaskaReport has reportedly claimed that multiple sources, including a former Palin staffer, have confirmed the split, citing infidelity on both sides. Last fall, the National Enquirer, who was the first to break the story of John Edwards’ affair, had reported that Sarah had been carrying on an extra-marital relationship with Todd’s former business partner.
Although no one is sure what Sarah’s next move will be after stepping down as governor, a divorce would certainly put a kink in any plans to run for higher office. (US Magazine)
