Bristol Palin: My Virginity Was 'Stolen'


Bristol Palin sat down this morning with "Good Morning America"'s Robin Roberts  to talk about her controversial new book Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, and in the revealing new interview, she clarifies her wording in the book that her virginity was "stolen" by then-boyfriend, and father of her babyTripp, Levi Johnston.

Bristol wrote that she lost her virginity to Levi on a camping trip after getting drunk for the first time on too many wine coolers. She claims that she woke up in her tent, alone, with no memories of what had happened, and had lied to her parents about where she was going in the first place.

"I'm not accusing Levi of date rape, or rape at all, but I am just looking back with the adult eyes that I have now and just thinking that was a foolish decision," Bristol tells Robin. "I should have never been underage drinking and I should have never gotten myself into a situation like that."

She also makes it clear that she has no regrets about writing negatively about Levi in her book, calling him the "gnat" that is "constantly spreading false accusations against our family."

When asked about how her comments about Tripp's own father will affect Tripp himself, she says, "I don't know if Levi will be a big role model in his life at all so I'm not worried about it."

As for the buzz that her mother, Sarah Palin, will run for president in the upcoming 2012 election? Bristol is clearly supportive of the possibility.

"I think she's awesome. I think she's smart," Bristol says about Sarah. "I think she would be awesome for our country."

Check out the video to see more of Bristol's candid interview, where she also gives the inside story surrounding the infamous 2010 Us Weekly cover announcing her and Levi's engagement, which was called off just a few weeks later after Levi told her he may have fathered a child with another woman.
