People: Levi Johnston confirms split

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption=" Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin have split."](PEOPLE) - Standing outside his family home in Wasilla, Alaska, Wednesday, the 19-year-old Levi Johnston confirmed that the end of his engagement to Bristol Palin was mutual and decided "a while ago." But, he also told the Associated Press that the rumors on the Internet of why and how were inaccurate.

Meanwhile, Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of Gov. Sarah Palin, issued a statement through her mother's political action committee, saying, "Unfortunately, my family has seen many people say and do many things to 'cash in' on the Palin name. Sometimes that greed clouds good judgment and the truth."

    Levi Johnston, America's longest held political prisoner, has been set free. Good, the proliferation of Sarah Palin's genes should be halted at any cost. Run, Levi, run!

    I heard that the baby may not be his and is of a different race. That I don't have a problem with. What I have a problem with is that Republican Family Values b.s. that they spew. Oops, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

    To danielle – I love how you people want to call the Palin family "trash" and yet neglect the fact that Obama's mother had the same problems.

    No hun, the difference is President Obama's Mom didn't parade around spouting Christian family values. I don't think people have a problem with Bristol Palin being an unmarried woman with a child. That's very common and sadly, happens to MANY families. The problem is Sarah Palin's obvious lack of concern for her daughter's privacy and the willingness to share their family "drama".

    How you respect a woman like Sarah Palin? Personally, I never did and have even less respect for her now. The whole Levi/Bristol wedding was a complete sham.

    My heart goes out to Bristol. She appears to be a sweet girl, who got herself into a very adult situation. I hope she can move forward and raise her son and be happy. As far as Levi...or whomever the father is...I hope that he's a part of the baby's life and does what he needs to do.
