Levi Johnston was some teenage loser who got drunk and knocked up Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, then he parlayed that “fame” by posing nude and standing outside car dealerships. Bristol now wants all that money of course. TMZ reports:
Court documents were filed by Bristol’s lawyer late Thursday afternoon in Alaska, demanding $1,750 a month in child support from Levi, retroactive to the birth of son Tripp on December 27, 2008. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Bristol believes Levi has pulled in “in excess of $105,000 in 2009 through various media interviews and modeling related activities.” Bristol says in her sworn statement, “I have received limited and sporadic financial assistance from Levi.” Bristol says Levi has forked over only $4,400 over the 13 months of Tripp’s life — $3,000 on September 9, 2009, $1,400 on December 19. Bristol’s request is for temporary support, pending a permanent child support order. UPDATE: Levi Johnston’s manager, Tank Jones, tells TMZ Levi has paid Bristol more than $10,000 since Tripp was born. Jones also says Levi does not make money off of every interview he does, though he did not say exactly how much Levi has made.
$1,750 for one kid? I hate to break it to you ladies, but this how Lifetime movies get made. Here’s an idea, get a job. Just because you didn’t make this idiot pull out, doesn’t mean he has to live under a bridge so you can mark things off your Charlotte Russe wishlist. Besides, this kid is half Palin, there was a good chance he would have came out like Trig. What does he need two grand a month for? Just get him a tire swing or a cable run so he can have free access to the backyard. That seems like it would be fun and a bit more cost effective.
