Levi Johnston recently offered a classic defense of his deadbeat dad status, essentially claiming he is a mere deadbeat - he's got no cash to pay child support.
You need to have money and be withholding it to be a deadbeat dad, after all, and he says that's not so. Baby mama Bristol Palin, however, is not buying it.
Taking time away from calling out Family Guy on Facebook, Bristol has subpoenaed CNN, Playgirl and others to prove Levi is a liar earning more than he says.
A lawyer for Sarah Palin's daughter is scoffing at legal documents filed by Team Levi, which claim the teen he earned a mere pittance over the last few years.
Thus, he cannot pay the $1,688.42 a month in child support Bristol Palin seeks. We doubt that, and so does Bristol, who's calling his bluff in a court of law.
The gloves are coming off in this hilarious family feud.
Palin's lawyer issued subpoenas today to CNN, Playgirl, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Star Magazine, and The National Enquirer to discern how much they paid.
What Team Bristol believes is a smoking gun is Johnston's dubious claim in a court declaration that he made no more than $10,000 a year prior to last year, 2009.
But in the new docs, Palin's lawyer attached Levi's pay stub from 2008, showing that he raked in $18,594.50 from one employer - a construction company in Alaska.
If he lied about that, imagine what he's lying about regarding the half-dozen celebrity gossip programs and publications listed above. Clearly they paid him a little.
Also, come on. Playgirl is no Playboy, but those Levi Johnston nude photo spreads were big sellers! Surely he got a big ass advance or some royalties, right?
