Levi Johnston Owes Bristol Palin close to $39,000 in Child Support

Posted on Apr 18, 2012
Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has accused Levi Johnston of failing to pay child support of $1,750 per month for 22 months. Levi Johnston is the father of Tripp Palin, who is now three years old. The total amount he allegedly owes Palin is nearing $39,000 at this point, although the Palins have not pursued enforcement of the child support agreement. This news comes just after the announcement this week that Levi Johnston is expecting a new baby with his current girlfriend.

The relationship between Palin and Johnston has been described as “strained,” and Palin’s lawyer points to this tense relationship as one of the reasons why she has not pursued collection of the amount owed. Palin’s lawyer has stated that they had hoped Mr. Johnston would pay the child support voluntarily.

There has been some talk that part of the reason Johnston has not been making child support payments is because he is unhappy with the amount of time he is allowed to spend with his son.
