They called off the Kentucky nuptials a week before they were set to walk down the aisle.
A Wasilla, AK source revealed, “[Bristol] told people that she broke up with Dakota partly because he was super controlling and made her move to Kentucky.”
Palin did sell her home in Wasilla before the wedding, but has since purchased a smaller pad just outside of town.
The insider said she plans to raise son Tripp, 6, and her baby in Alaska, near mom Sarah Palin.
Last month, as news broke that Bristol and Dakota's wedding was off, Palin told "Extra" that her daughter is "very grounded, very practical in terms of making a lifelong commitment, she knows that hey, everything's got to be worked out before you actually make that commitment.”
Palin continued in her imitable style, "She posted something today, like, 'Let god work everything out so that everything works together instead of maybe in the future everything falling apart,' so that kind of speaks to her character and her heart, knowing that questions have to be answered, issues have to be worked out before you actually say I do, and I will be there with you for the rest of our lives... so that, just kind of alluding to some of challenges.”
