Bristol Palin, the 21-year-old daughter of Republican politician Sarah Palin, has insisted her ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston did not rape her, despite making certain claims in her new book. Bristol Palin alleges the father of her child "stole" her virginity when she was just 15-years-old.
During an interview with Good Morning America to discuss her new memoir 'Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far', Palin claims she used the word "stolen" in the book because "that's what it felt like". When pushed on the matter, Palin quickly added, "I'm not accusing Levi of date rape, or rape at all. But I am just looking back with the adult eyes I have now, and just thinking, that was a foolish decision". In her new book, Bristol attacks Johnston as a "gnat" and claims he was a poor father who cheated on her numerous times before turning her against her own family. She also claims to have bitterly regretted falling pregnant the way she did and is reportedly now abstaining from sex until she gets married again.
Bristol Palin won the support of the American public during her recent stint on Dancing With The Stars. The 21-year-old defied the odds to reach the final of the competition before eventually losing out to JENNIFER GREY.
