Levi Johnston Denies Deadbeat Dad Status

by at . Comments

Hunky unwed baby daddy Levi Johnston is speaking out against claims by Bristol Palin that he is neglecting to support their one-year-old son Tripp.

Levi is "baffled" at Bristol's demand for child support, as he's offered her some money in the past but she hasn't taken it, according to his lawyer.

Attorney Rex Butler says Levi has told Bristol on several occasions he wanted her to come to his house to pick up checks for Tripp's child support.

Butler says Levi also told her "it would be nice" if she brought Tripp along when she picked them up, as Levi wanted to spend time with his son.

On each occasion, Bristol Palin was a no-show.

Redneck

Thus, Team Levi says Bristol is to blame for not getting the support she wants, as he was prepared to hand over $3,000 but Bristol never showed.

As for why Levi Johnston didn't just put the check in the mail, the attorney responded, "Why should he have to do that. He's not dangerous to her."

Bristol filed for $1,750 a month in child support last week from Levi, claiming he's only paid $4,400 since Tripp was born in late December 2008.

Levi's manager says he has forked over more than $10,000. His camp wouldn't say what Levi made in '09, but they say much less than $250,000.

Lastly, Butler says Bristol's been driving around in a $60,000 Cadillac Escalade that he believes Sarah Palin bought ... and he thinks none other than the former Alaska Governor is controlling Bristol and is behind the latest legal move.

She's probably behind Bristol's belated abstinence pledge too.

It's only my opinion but I think the reason Levi became a media whore was to pay child support and to keep the Palin's mouth shut. He knew he couldn't make a lot of money in Alaska and they would bad mouth him over it. I also think his success surprised them, so they regrouped and now the Palin's want to clean him out. They are vultures. He has had an attorney in all of this, and he has done what the attorneys have told him. It's the awful Palin's that are at fault. The Palin's are out to get him, to make Bristol come off smelling like a rose. Not Gonna Happen!!!

We support Levi b/c he's hilarious and is admittedly a fame whore.
If Palin came out and said: I'm making as much money as I can off my celebrity status, we'd absolutely be in her corner.

Levi is a user loser. He would not be in the spotlight at all if not for being the father of Tripp. There is no reason Bristol, who works, goes to school, and is a mom, should have to go over to Levi's to pick up child support. Levi is such a joke. He DOES need to man up and show some real interest in seeing his son, and helping to pay for the child's support.
And so what if Bristol is driving her parent's car. That happens all the time.

The one who should be slapped is the beaver-toothed holier-than-thou hypocrite Bristol. Her entire arrogant family could use a dope slap. Dude deserves to see his kid. He played along with the Palins using him as a media puppet to clean up their image. Now it's their turn to suck it up and do the right thing.

lol..he is such a tool...she doesn't have to go to his door and beg for money, whether he is a danger or not! That just proves how selfish he is..."if you want the money you have to come to my house and get it, oh...btw, could you bring my son so I could visit him, too...then I'll give you money. I just don't feel it necessary to come to your house and pick up my own son and either mail or drop off child support...it is all up to you to make it happen, Bristol!! After all, your mother alreaedy has money and has been helping you out anyhow, so...why should I help, too?!?!...." He needs to be slapped!!

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.

Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can't imagine life without him now.
