Levi Johnston Seeks Joint Custody, Revenge for Being Discarded Plaything


Levi Johnston Seeks Joint Custody, Revenge for Being Discarded Plaything

Levi Johnston, who’s even more ubiquitous than Jon Gosselin these days, talked to Entertainment Tonight about filing for joint custody of his 10-month-old son Tripp.  (Of course he did.  Hell, he’d share his thoughts about his bowel movement schedule if the media would pay for ’em.)  He claims Sarah Palin is the main culprit behind his decision and the reason he hasn’t been able to see his son with her 19-year-old daughter Bristol.

“She has a big impact on what Bristol does and thinks,” Levi says. “Bristol looks up to Sarah.  I don’t know why they just don’t want me in his life.”

Oh, Levi.  Pretty, pretty Levi.

But Pretty, Pretty Levi insists he doesn’t fear Palin as he gets ready to sue for joint custody. “She ain’t nothing,” he says eloquently.  “Just because she ran for vice president and was the governor of Alaska, doesn’t intimidate me.  Sarah has no legal thing on Tripp, she’s just the grandmother.”

He adds:  “By the end of the year we’re gonna go to court for joint custody. I’m just done with it. When there’s a kid involved you ain’t walking away.”

Nope!  You walk to a Playgirl photo shoot instead.

When Levi announced his intention to sue for custody, Palin’s camp did not respond to requests for comment. But her lawyer, Thomas Van Flein, told Britain’s The Guardian, “Other than noting that Tripp’s father is always welcome to visit his son, we are unable to respond to these allegations as it is inappropriate to discuss child custody matters publicly.”

Inappropriate until Palin launches her book tour, that is.
