Bristol Palin is defending herself against those crowing about her so-called loss in her custody battle with Levi Johnston.
Palin and Johnston had been locked in a vicious custody battle over their son Tripp for years, but yesterday Johnston announced in a now-deleted Facebook post that the case had been resolved, and he won equal custody.
But just because he won doesn’t mean Palin lost, she says.
In a new Instagram post following a cryptic message earlier today about rumors, Palin slammed reports that she lost anything.

“These babies are my world and I will always be doing what is best for them,” she wrote. “Every child deserves two loving parents, so I will continue to encourage that no matter what. I have never, and will never, keep them from having a positive relationship with their fathers. I did not ‘lose’ any custody case – my son has always spent most of his time with me and he will continue to do so, he is happy, healthy, and knows both of his parents love him.. Matthew 5:11”
So how did this all go down? One of Palin’s fans broke it down in the comment section.
“The two got their out of court agreement approved by a judge finally,” [sic] the commenter explained. “No one lost because it is what they both want. And her son has seen his father regularly for years now. Her statement above stands. To everyone. If you don’t know a person, your opinion regarding their personal affairs is worthless.”
Johnston initially submitted his bid for equal custody in 2013.
