Sarah Palin supports Bristol emotionally, not financially
Now, Bristol tells People that the support she receives from mother Sarah Palin and the rest of her family is emotional support, not financial. Bristol's 16-month-old son with Levi Johnston, Tripp, spends his days with a babysitter while Bristol works. "[My parents] are there for support when I need it emotionally, but I'm on my own financially. I work an 8 to 5 job, five days a week," Bristol says.
