Teen mom Bristol Palin and Teen Mom Maci Bookout became friends while doing speaking gigs for the Candie’s Foundation (which aims to prevent teen pregnancy). However, sources tell Crushable that the once-thriving friendship has soured now that Bristol is a bigger star. After Bristol’s turn on Dancing with the Stars, she reportedly became less and less interested in arranging play dates for her son Tripp and Maci’s son Bentley. Distance was also a factor: Maci’s based in Tennessee, while Bristol goes back and forth between her native Alaska and Arizona, where she recently purchased a home.
As recently as last November, the pair remained close, with Maci telling Us Weekly “We definitely keep in touch and make sure everything is going good with each other.” But after Bristol signed a large contract for her memoir and started getting more high-profile press bookings, she stopped replying to Maci’s emails. Is this simply a case of friends gradually losing touch over time, or did Bristol flat-out drop Maci?
