Bristol Palin Loses Long Custody Battle

Bristol Palin has lost a seven-year custody battle with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston, who will now share joint custody of their son, Tripp. The 25-year-old daughter of former politician and reality-TV star Sarah Palin allegedly made it difficult for Johnston to see his son after their breakup. “I’m so happy to have my son in my life,” Johnston wrote in a social-media post after the ruling. Palin is also in a custody battle with ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer over their daughter, Sailor Grace, who was born in December.
