Levi Johnston: My Future is Bleak

2/11/2010 7:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Levi Johnston has just fired back at his baby mama, Bristol Palin, and unlike grandma Sarah Palin, Levi didn't need to write crib notes on his hand.

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin

Levi is responding to Bristol's demand for $1,750 a month in child support. In his opposing legal papers, Levi's lawyer, Rex Butler, says Levi's income is "erratic." Bristol claims that Levi raked in more than $105,000 in 2009. But attorney Butler says, prior to 2009, Levi never made more than $10,000 a year.

In the legal docs, Johnston agrees to pay 20% of his adjusted 2009 income -- though he doesn't say exactly how much he made. He also agrees to file quarterly income reports. In his declaration, Levi says in 2010, his only contractual guarantee for income is $25,000 plus "some contingencies based on my Playgirl shoot." He says he doesn't see how it's possible to pay $1,750 a month in child support.

And there's this. According to the docs, "Levi Johnston stands before this court as a 19-year-old with good hopeful for an entertainment career but the chances of increased income are as unknowable as it would be for any young person working his way into the entertainment industry: not particularly good."

Bristol Palin has a job, and her mother's income isn't relevant to the matter or is it relevant to Levi's financial responsibility.

Levi made over 100k last year, and Bristol is asking the court that Levi contribute 20% of his earnings towards the care of his child.

The amount will be adjusted quarterly, based on his earnings which will likely drop in the future as there is only so much money to be made trashing the family that so graciously took him into their home and treated like a son.

Of course, Levi didn't even bother to show up in court yet he never fails to show up for talk shows like "The Joy Behar Show" to trash the family that treated him so well.

The lefty's were all so happy when political operatives were filing numerous frivolous lawsuits (all thrown out of court) in an attempt to bankrupt the Palin family, yet now they are crying when the shoe is on the other foot and the court holds Levi responsible for his actions.

Their hypocrisy is staggering, yet not surprising.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

And if he can't pay, I'm sure he has great potential as a gay porn actor.

Payback is a b!tch, isn't it?

"This MOTHER EFFER would have never seen more than $10,000 a year, if not for spawning with a Palin!"

The baby is a Palin-Johnston, like it or not. $1,750 per month -- no baby needs that much unless it has some special disease/physical or mental problem.

Sarah Palin should take "abstinence" right out of her agenda, given the failure of her teen-ager to follow it, even knowing what her mother was preaching. One wonders if Palin's final baby was "an accident" too.

hahahaha!    

The Palins are just trying to punish this kid. The courts are pretty cut and dry, you pay a percentage of your reportable income.. period. And while he is there he should demand his rightful parental visitation and joint custody. I wonder if Sarah would run the country like the same way.. bully those who cross her, threaten and use her money and connections to make sure you feel her wrath.

Hey Penny:

At least she can give an entire speech without needing a Teleprompter. We have the presidential version of Ron Burgandy in the White House who will ready ANYTHING -- AN-E-THING that's written on it. Which is worse?
