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."

Sounds like welfare to me. She wants to get money he made for posing for Playgirl? Why doesn't she go pose for Playboy? Why is she so unemployable?

Maybe he should have thought about what could happen when he decided to take the risk of getting her pregnant.

The kid got her pregnant, she went through the 9 months & labor, she's the one stuck raising the kid. Is he supposed to just get away scott free? He's responsible for that baby too. She's doing what every other woman would do. His excuses are pathetic. Go get a job at some fast food place or whatever if you need to make money. Just because you think you're better than that doesnt mean you dont have to subject yourself to hard word at a crappy job and can just get away doing nothing just because you cant make it in the entertainment industry.

I'm sure the kid can get a job doing something whether it be construction or freaking wal-mart for all i care, just get a job instead of making lame excuses as to why you're broke and can't pay for your child.

No one had a problem with Kelis taking Nas to the bank for ridiculous amounts of money for her child support but since it's Bristol Palin everyone has a problem now?

I dont blame the Palins for demanding he pay child support after all the negative things he had to say about Sarah and the family. This kid is a loser and needs to man up and take responsibility for his actions. Suck up your pride, get a job somewhere and start contributing to your kid.

If you're prepared to use your d**k for sex, then you better be prepared for what may happen if the girl gets pregnant. I have no sympathy for stupidity like this kid is showing.

Maybe next time he'll think before he has sex with a girl.

Annborden, no where does it say Sarah is the one asking this, Bristol is asking for this. So quit showing bias just because you don't like Sarah Palin.

Why Not    

Well maybe he needs to get a job equal to his education, which give him a lot of choices... McDees, any big box store, delivering papers... whatever he is capable of doing, BECAUSE... the bottom line is... he has a son that he is obligated to support. He can't do that, wandering around naked waiting for someone to offer him a porn shoot.
This man had his head turned by people like Jon Gosselin and ET/The Insider, who convinced an immature mind that he was somebody.
He will be SOMEBODY, when he decides to be somebody and stops waiting for life to hand him his life. No one else is going to do that.
Bristol is a single mother, who relies on her family to support her because Levi is not capable... and he should not have joint custody of an infant when his mother is a druggie, probably going to jail, with no way to help him.
Having said all that... I feel very sorry for him, Bristol, and their son.

So it's all Levi's fault then? Was Bristol even present while they were doing the deed? By some of these comments it sounds like she wasn't even around when it happened.

YES OF COURSE HE SHOULD PAY, but why should he pay more than anyone else in his economic condition?

All you welfare moms defending this chick should stop for a moment and think about how much YOUR BABY DADDIES ARE PAYING YOU! I bet it's nowhere near $1,7--/month.

Both of these kids need to wake up and get their butts to McDonald's so they can earn a living and support the child they BOTH made.

P.S. I blame "abstinence only" and therefore Sarah Palin for all of this mess.

Drag his white trash, loser, sorry ass to court. He's a lazy good for nothing. Too bad you hooked up with such a deadbeat Bristol. He's hitched onto the 15 minutes of fame band wagon. Next year he'll be working at Mc Donalds, those child support payments ain't goin away Mr. Big Shot!! Ha ha.

An idiot who blames "abstinence only" when abstinence would have kept the two out of the mess they are in now. All that sex education and Bristol still got knocked up because teens think it's fun to take chances, or that it won't happen to them just other people.

No one is saying Levi should not have to support his kid...everyone has to support their children. Single mothers have to WORK and support their children too. Both do, there should be no visitation games played among either party. See the child, allow the child to be picked up for scheduled visitation. In this economy, no way is $1750month for one child being collected from very many 19 year old high school drop outs. If so, please link.
(those days via the manner the woman has been accustomed to..are long over) Single mothers/divorced mothers/Dads all work to support their kids.
Bristol is entitled to nada for support for herself.

pohono    

To the person who thinks 36,000 dollars a year is a great amount of money.... Excuse me? My husband and I pull in just under that a year. Here in California poverty level is 50 grand a year. Welfare is 34,000 a year. We are 100 dollars over that. I can tell you after paying 1200 a month for rent each month we do not have all that much left over. Usually just enough for groceries and gas to keep the cars running. Not sure where you live that you are doing so well. Please let me know... We sure could use a break! Oh and my sister gets 350 a week from her unemployed exhusband for her child. Thats not much under what levi is being asked to pay!
