Todd Palin, husband of former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, has reportedly filed for divorce. The Anchorage Daily News reports that Todd Palin cited "incompatibility of temperament between the parties." The motion also states that their incompatibility makes it "impossible to live together as husband and wife." According to the report, Todd filed the papers last Friday, September 6, at the Anchorage Superior Court following 31 years of marriage between the pair.
In the filing, Todd only used the couple's initials but their wedding date as well as their son Trig's birthday are both consistent with the Palin family in the filing. As The Inquisitr recently shared, Todd and Sarah have five kids together —Track, 30, Bristol, 28, Willow, 25, Piper, 18, and Trig, 11. Todd is seeking joint custody of Trig since he is the only one of the children who is a minor.
Kimberlee Colbo, who is an attorney from Anchorage, will be representing Todd, though it is unclear who will be representing the former vice presidential nominee. Colbo has also requested that the court designate the divorce confidential as things progress. So far, the mother of five has yet to respond for comment or make any sort of public announcement of her own following the surprising news.
As fans know, Palin was elected as the governor of Alaska back in 2006 where she still remained under the radar for the most part. But in 2008, the Wasilla, Alaska native was thrust into the spotlight after John McCain named her as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election. Of course, the famous duo lost the race to Barack Obama and Joe Biden, but that didn't stop Palin from becoming a household name.
