When Bristol Palin’s baby daddy asked for equal custody of their four-year-old boy, Tripp, reports surfaced that the former Playgirl model owes $66,000 in child support.
But Levi Johnston’s wife is coming to his rescue.
Sunny Johnston tells RumorFix exclusively, “There is a lot of crooked stuff going on right now. Levi does not owe her near that.”
Bristol’s attorney, John Tiemessen, tells AP that the Child Support Service Division says Levi owes the 66K. But, Sunny says, “He’s [Levi's] already paid her $30,000 and might not have even owed her that. It’s a long story.”
In 2010, Levi and Bristol agreed Bristol would have primary custody and the two would share legal custody, but now Levi and Sunny want 50/50 custody.
So, why is he going after 50/50 custody now? “He’s going after his son for the reason he’s always fought for him. We just saved up for a lawyer and hoping for 50/50. He’s been paying child support for months now after giving her $30,000 two years ago,” she added.
Sarah Palin’s arch rival believes he can keep up with child support payments and provide for Tripp because Levi has given up Hollywood and is working as an electrician and Sunny is a medical assistant.
