SARAH Palin's teenage Bristol has broken off her engagement to Levi Johnston two months after the birth of their child.
The 18-year-old daughter of the Alaskan Governor told the Associated Press (AP) she was "devastated" by the split.
"Unfortunately, my family has seen many people say and do many things to 'cash in' on the Palin name," she said in a statement.
"Sometimes that greed clouds good judgment and the truth."
Mr Johnston, 19, told AP the pair had mutually decided to end their relationship.
Bristol Palin's pregnancy was announced last summer days after her mother was named John McCain's running mate on the Republican presidential ticket.

At least the baby wasn’t sacrificed on the altar of political correctness!
Again second time today?
That’s too bad. But this is why our chidren should not be having children. Parenting and marriage require maturity.
liberal kfi am los angeles was laughing about this in the afternoon.
Two teenagers broke up under immense media/dem pressure to do so.
Figures..they would much rather laugh at an 18 year old kid then then having to cry when they see the stock market keep crashing under Obama
This is Sarah Palin’s fault for forcing her family on the national stage. /s
in the morning, bill handel of kfi am los angeles never misses an oppotunity to slam governor palin.
it makes me so angry, i tune out.
KFI is generally conservative, I thought.
Anyway, it’s a joke that they would make jokes and try to trash Sarah Palin by making light of her daughter’s situation.
bill handel is an asshat.
On a lighter note, we all know when the guy says something like that, it means she dumped him. :)
Probably the best thing. My BIL and his girlfriend made the mistake of marrying when they were young, a couple of years after their daughter was born. Things went south pretty quick and now they’re in the midst of a messy divorce.
no. mixed bag.
bill handel is a liberal. he detests governor palin. he gets snarky about rush limbaugh. rush is on kfi later.
john and ken are nyc/nj democrats who are angry about many of the issues we are angry at. they dislike governor palin too.
john zeigler, the libertarian kfi host of the evenings, incidentally who made the recent palin video, was let go from kfi.
dr. laura is a conservative and started out on kfi, syndicated of course.
You just had to know this was coming. The pressure those two were under was immense, and well orchestrated.
I wish them both nothing but good.
Fault of the media for putting the rest of her children in the spotlight...While very respectfull coverage of the Obama girls!
