Palin Wins -- Levi Johnston Ordered to Pay Up


During a hearing in the child support case between Bristol Palin and Levi, the judge ruled Levi must pay $1,688.42 a month in support, retroactive to the child's birth -- December 27, 2008.

Of course all parents should pay child support, mother or father. But, I would like to know what does Bristol do for a living to help support her child and who pays for health care for her son and her? I'm sure she can't be making a living touring around and promoting abstinence-only crap!!!

Glad to hear he's going to have to step up and support his kid. I support mine. Unfortunately, my stepdaughter's dad is a deadbeat...

First off Bristol Palin isn't rich, her Mother is. Levi is responsible for helping support the baby. Why shoulnd't he pay up, isn't he the father. I'm sick of the Palin Family bashing.

Something is odd. How can the judge assess how much Levi needs to pay if the info about his income hasn't been filed with the court. I think TMZ has just printed what Palin lawyer Van Flein fed to them, not an objective story about what happened today. I call bu!!sh!t.

Why am I only getting $100 per week for one child who I have all the time? Time for an adjustment I do think.

If it's true way to go Bristol lol!! You create it Levi you pay for it!! As for those saying it's not possible, yes it is if he was a no show in court to dispute her claim! When the records are on file about his earnings, maybe she'll get an increase (only kidding lol!),of course those saying maybe now he can have access to his kid live in the twilight zone - he's been able to enforce a child custody or parental visitation rights through the court since baby was born!! Guess the bum's not that interested then hm?!

Wow. Report something good about someone named Palin and the haters start beating on TMZ? The vitriol of some people in this country against that family is amazing. They will strike out at anyone including a celebrity web site. It really shows how much credibility the haters have.

PALIN IS HORRIBLE AND SO IS HER FAMILY! THEY TRAVEL ON JETS AROUND THE COUNTRY AND MAKE HELLA MONEY. WHY DO THEY HAVE TO STICK IT TO LEVI? I UNDERSTAND SUPPORTING YOUR KID, BUT WHEN YOUR BABY MOM
IS RICH IT IS JUST MESSED UP!

No, actually you don't understand supporting your kid. With a comment like that, it's obvious you understand nothing. It takes two to make a child and he is responsible until that child is 18. It is irrelevant whether the mother is wealthy or not.

Glad to hear about Palin win. They need to keep their mouth quite and stay back in Alaska. We are getting tired hearing about them through the news media. They both need to get a real job.
