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."

I don't believe that hatred of Sara Palin is a legal defense for NOT paying child support but I guess the courts will determine that...

Since TMZ is apparently bent on referring to "crib notes" every time something about the Palin's comes up; then I expect that every time something about Obama speaking comes up, they will refer to the fact that he just HAS to use his teleprompter and is incapable of speaking without it. :-)

Levi, go back to school. Now, does Bristol need to pony up Levi's share for selling pictures of that baby to magazines? $1750/month for one child, wow--Bristol should ask divorced/single mothers across America what they receive a month? Everyone needs to support their children, but it seems like Bristol got a taste of the good life from the RNC digs or the pay-out from pimping those pics of her baby. Get real. Get to seeing your baby, Levi.

He should pay child support like everyone else does, not like Sarah wants. All this has nothing to do with the baby, it's all about Sarah and what she wants!! Sarah Palin is not the mother of this child, she the grandmother!! I bet Bristol has no say in this either!! It's all Sarah!!!!! She trying to make all the rules. I bet Sarah is doing this to try and make Levi give up his rights as a father!!! I bet Levi can only see his daughter is at their house. While they are around. I bet he can't even take his daughter to his house and have regular visits. I bet Sarah has to always be around. I bet Sarah even says when he can see his daughter, not Bristol. Sarah needs to let Bristol and Levi work this out between themselves and stay out of it themselves. She has forgot she's only the grandmother.

Is Bristol ever plan on getting a job to help contribute to her childs future. They do have babysitters/nannies or is she going to be freeloading mom. She is trying to make him the bad guy while she does nothing. I haven't heard of her doing anything cept bitch and file papers against Levi, Sounds like a good old fashioned welfare mother.

Get a lawyer, Levi, if you want to see your son so bad. Palin has enough political enemies to work pro-bono for you and will go after her with a vengeance. I bet you have been offered services for free to get custody, but you don't really want to see your son that bad, do you? You bum. You rotten stinkin' bum. Let's just hope the apple fell far enough away from the tree.

Even if Levi pays 20% of his income bristol should be required to itemize the baby's monthly needs & any extra money should go into a college fund/bank account for the baby. Bristol should not be able to use the money any way she wants.

It's completely unreasonable to demand such an amount out of a stupid kid. Nobody else's baby daddy could afford $1,750 a month in child support fresh out of high school so what makes the Palin family believe this guy is any different? He might be able to afford that amount this year, but the Playgirl money will run out soon and they'll have to face a bit of reality.

Palin has crib notes and Obamo said there were Corpsmen. With the (s)pronounced not without the S. Maybe he was making a reference to zombies as in corpsement? He sure has purple lips like a zombie.

The amount of money that this simple broad is asking for is unreasonable. It does not take 3,500 a month to support a baby.

Sarah Palin and her family don't do anything unless there is money or freebies involved.

Yeah I think she'd be a whole lot better than the teleprompter reader we've got now. It's like another poster stated earlier... he's like Ron Burgondy up there! He will read ANYTHING!!
