Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin split a few months ago. That we saw coming.
What we could not have predicted was the unwed teenage baby daddy turning into a complete media slut, talking to every TV show that will take him and throwing Bristol and her mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, under the bus.
According to a report in the National Enquirer, Bristol Plain is getting a bit fed up with the act - and wants to keep their baby, Tripp, away from him.
"What Bristol is doing amounts to emotional blackmail," says a source close to the previously engaged couple. "She no longer wants Levi in her life and she's been threatening to have him cut out of their newborn son Tripp's life."
Levi, along with his drug-dealing mother Sherry and sister Mercede, appeared on Larry King Live on April 22 to discuss the ongoing feud they're having with the former Republican candidate for Vice President and her family.
According to a source, the escalating feud between former lovers Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is very ... well, high school. They are just 18 and 19, after all.
"Bristol holds a grudge against Mercede because some of her friends dated Levi. The girls meant nothing to Levi, but Bristol wouldn't accept that."
"The irony is that Bristol stole Levi from her childhood best friend, Lanesia Garcia, who dated Levi for almost three years before Bristol did!"
Levi has said throughout his media tour that he is not allowed to take his 4-month-old son out of the Palin home. Both Levi and his mom confirmed to King that they've retained lawyers to help Levi battle for custody of his child.
Levi also admitted he isn't paying Bristol Palin child support, but denies he's a deadbeat dad, saying: "I have everything my boy needs back home."
Bristol is said to be stunned that Levi is fighting back publicly.
"Bristol constantly threatens Levi, telling him that if he keeps up these publicity stunts she won't let him see Tripp," said the source.
"In the end, she'll have to do to whatever a judge decides. Her mother may be governor, but Levi has a right to see his son, like it or not!"
