Levi Johnston may be looking forward to becoming a dad for the second time, but if Bristol Palin's most recent allegations of him being a deadbeat dad are true, he may want to reconsider how he goes about parenthood.
We'll cut to the chase: Bristol says Levi owes $38,500 in back child support.
The daughter of ex-Alaska governor Sarah Palin and two-time ex-fiancee of Levi claims he is required to pay $1,750 a month in support for son Tripp, 3.
He allegedly last did so in June 2010 ... 22 months ago.
As for why Bristol Palin hasn't tried to enforce the supposed order via wage garnishment or other means to make Levi, who got girlfriend Sunny Oglesby pregnant earlier this year, she says it's a complicated situation. Ya think?Bristol's lawyer told TMZ that the younger Palin declined to "pursue child support collection in the (perhaps naive) hope that Mr. Johnston would do what men are supposed to do and pay his support obligation voluntarily."
The lawyer adds, "We were also concerned that garnishment or other aggressive collection efforts could exacerbate an already strained relationship."
Probably true, but there must be more to it. Our first guess: He doesn't have $1,750/month to spare. It's Levi Johnston. What does that guy even do?
Besides get women pregnant, we mean. We're talking about for a living.
He and Sunny Oglesby confirmed her pregnancy earlier this week after the news leaked ... maybe second time's the charm for the Wasilla Wonder?
