Todd Palin Files For Divorce From Sarah Palin

×

Sarah Palin and her husband Todd are married no more. The Anchorage Daily News has reported that Todd Palin filed for divorce from the former vice presidential nominee after 31 years of marriage. As the reason for the split, Todd’s filing reportedly cited:

“…incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”

“Damn, that was cold.”

NBC News reports that the paperwork was reportedly submitted on August 29th 2019, just eight days after their 31st wedding anniversary.

Todd and Sarah Palin have been married since 1988 and share four adult children. Todd has requested joint custody of their son Trig, 11, who has special needs. Todd also reportedly asked for a 50-50 settlement of debts and assets in the divorce. The filing was written using only Todd and Sarah’s initials, but included son Trig’s name and their birthdates.

The Palins first hit national prominence when Sarah was selected as then-Senator John McCain’s running mate for the 2008 presidential election. Sarah had been elected governor of Alaska in 2006 but resigned in 2009 amid increased media attention on her family following her failed VP bid. In the years since, Sarah Palin has been a regular presence on television, mostly as a contributor and analyst for Fox News. A reality show named after her, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, also aired for one season on TLC in 2010.

Conservative actor Dean Cain told People magazine that he recently dined with the estranged couple and had no idea that there was any split looming. He said:

“They seemed wonderful together. I’d hate to speculate on the cause – what happens behind closed doors, and how people grow and change over time is something no one can ever predict or understand, save those two people.”

It’s unclear what problems actually afflicted the Palins’ marriage, but cheating rumors have dogged the couple ever since Sarah first stepped out onto the national stage. In 2011, The National Enquirer reported that Todd Palin was involved with a massage therapist named Shailey Tripp who’d been busted for allegedly running a brothel, though police told The New York Daily News that there wasn’t any evidence linking the pair and that Todd’s name had never come up during their investigation into the case.

In September 2008, Sarah Palin was reported to have had an affair with Todd’s pal and former snowmobile business partner, Brad Hanson. The National Enquirer, back for more potential Palin scandal, claimed that the alleged affair nearly destroyed each of their marriages. A so-called Hanson family insider told the tabloid:

“Sarah was elected mayor of Wasilla, Brad became a city council member in the nearby town of Palmer, and they started an affair. Todd found out about the affair and was so mad he broke up their partnership at the snowmobile dealership.”

Another source claimed that Sarah felt lonely when Todd was away on business and that Hanson went from a kind ear to a different kind of partner for Sarah, who allegedly told Todd she’d fallen in love with Hanson. Hanson denied the allegations, which resurfaced in 2011, telling The Associated Press:

“Todd and Sarah Palin have been good friends for many years, and in fact we still own property together. We sold a former joint business venture for business reasons, nothing more. These attacks are shameful and those making them seem to be out only to destroy good people and make more money doing so.”

In 2010, the Palins were hit with $20 million divorce rumors, which they later dismissed. Sarah scoffed to People:

“I call Todd on the cell phone [from the grocery checkout] and I say, ‘Todd, you won’t believe this cover!’ And he says, ‘Twenty million? Write me a check!’ He’s good about laughing some of that stuff off.”

Of course, that figure might have been a little high anyway, since TMZ estimates Sarah to be worth about $12 million. As of September 10th 2019, neither Todd nor Sarah Palin have commented on the divorce filing.
