Bristol Palin Wants Sole Custody of Son with Levi Johnston

Bristol Palin, daughter of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, wants sole custody of her son with ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston. Bristol Palin filed for sole custody of Tripp in November, but the case was originally registered using pseudonyms to prevent an “onslaught of media” in the custody battle. The custody filing came to light after a Superior Court judge ruled against keeping the court proceedings closed.

Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin’s ex-boyfriend, wanted the court custody proceedings to be public. “I feel more comfortable in a public courtroom which will help everyone stay civil and be on their best behavior,” Johnston said in a press statement.

In addition to sole custody, Bristol Palin also wants child support and a ban on Johnston’s mother visiting with their son without supervision. Sherry Johnston was arrested earlier this year on drug charges.

Levi Johnston, who recently appeared in a racy nude photo shoot for Playgirl, wants shared custody of son Tripp and denies he has avoided his parental responsibilities.

Either way it shakes out, we just can’t help feel bad for the kid. But if poor Tripp does end up getting to stay with Mom and Grandma Palin, at least he’ll get to see Russia from his house.

  1. I hope Pallin does get sole custody. This man has no idea what it takes to be a parent. I don’t blame him, he diafiantly had a poor upbringing by his mother. Not a real good role model. That shows in the decison he has made since his son has been born. My main concern would be how he would exploit his own child for a monetary gain. This is probably something he learned from his mom.
    A real man would never get on national TV and bash the mother of his child. I am not say a male I said a REAL MAN one with class and integrity. Clearly Levi has neither of these traits. In other words. He comes from white trash and has become white trash himself.
