If you live in the greater Alaska area and are wondering why you just heard what sounded like 10lbs of bugle beads being hurled across a room by an angry Mama Grizzly, this would be why. E! says that after fighting for nearly seven years, Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin have finally come to a custody agreement regarding their 7-year-old son, Tripp Johnston.
This whole mess started shortly after their son was born back in 2009. Levi had accused Sarah Palin and the Skidoo Crew of making it difficult to see Baby Tripp, so they worked out a visitation schedule. But those sneaky Palins never had it passed by a judge, which means it was never finalized. Eventually Levi got sick of getting the answering machine every time he called the Palin compound. So in 2013, Levi got his lawyer to file a petition requesting equal custody of Tripp. Which brings us to today when a judge finally got around to writing his name on a custody agreement.
But that doesn’t mean Bristol’s baby daddy custody battle days are over. Bristol is still fighting with Dakota Meyer over their 2-month-old daughter, Sailor Grace. Dakota, who lives in Kentucky, wants joint custody, but Bristol wants Sailor to stay with her full-time in Alaska. So, good luck with that, you two.
Levi spilled the beans about his custody fight with Bristol on Facebook last night (how very teen dad of you, Levi), but has since deleted it. Probably because he didn’t want a Natty Light-drunk Bristol and her brother Track at his front door in the middle of the night threatening to kick his ass unless he deleted what he done said about them. But E! says one of the thing he admitted is that he’s glad it’s over because it was costing him a whole lot of cash. According to Levi, fighting Bristol in court has cost him $100,000 worth of legal fees and $50,000 worth of child support for a kid he barely got to see.
If this custody fight with Bristol really did bleed $150,000 out of his bank account and he’s looking for a way to make a couple extra bucks, he could always call up Playgirl and see if they’d like to capitalize on the upcoming Presidential election with a “Where are they now?” spread. I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants to see that. What’s that? I am? Uh…in that case, forget what I said.
