Levi Johnston -- 3,500 More Reasons to Wrap Up

3/4/2010 4:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Levi Johnston's gonna have to whip out another body party -- or find some other way to make a quick $3,500 -- because a judge just ordered him to pay even more cash to his baby mama Bristol Palin.



It's kinda complicated -- but the long story short is the judge in Alaska re-crunched a few numbers and determined the $18,000 in back child support payments that Bristol had requested from Levi was way too low.

So now, according to legal papers filed this week in Alaska, Levi is on the hook for $21,561.12.

We're told that if Levi doesn't fork over the cash in a timely manner -- he could face some serious consequences ... including serious fines and possible jail time.

got deadbeat?    

Its all who you know and how famous you are. I've been after my dead beat for 20 years and all he had to pay was 100.00 a month! He owes 20,000+ for 20 years that I haven't gotten not be a little rich bitch living on mama and collecting that kind of money to go get her nails done on...I call BS! I was a single 19 year old mom when he got up and left with cut off electricity an eviction notice and a newborn on a apnea monitor that no day care would touch, and he has gotten away with it for 20 years with boohoo sob stories.
This poor kid has to pay way too much..and all because of the evil grandmothers status.
If he had a kid with any other family he wouldn't have gotten reamed.

3. Let some guy drop his load in you and sit on your ass for the next 18 years, what a great deal women get in the American legal system.

Oh please, "Truth". He is just as responsible for deciding to "drop his load" in her as she is "letting him". She is the one who has to bear the brunt of the consequences for that decision, while he's running around doing whatever he wants. Let him at least pay her for all the work. Raising a child is way harder than any job out there. That's why so few men dream of being a househusband/stay-at-home dad. Try listening to a baby cry day and night, day after day, and tell me you don't think it's more exhausting than any job you've ever had. And don't talk about nannies. If she has one, good for her. Let him pay for it. He probably spends a fraction of time with his child compared to her. Your 'Truth' is false. My advice, stop having sex if you aren't willing to make a commitment in the event of a pregnancy. You have a hand, use it if you can't control yourself. Otherwise, quit bitching.

Where is Levi going to get this kind of money? The judge must have previously been in Sarah Palin's back pocket. This is utterly ridiculous! Levi's 15 minutes have come and gone and he's in Alaska - under the age of 20. He simply doesn't have it. One thing is clear. Bristol is sitting on her ass in a mansion living off of Mom and Dad millionaires and does NOT need Levi's money anyway. More reasons to hate the Palin family. They are truly disgusting.

Can someone explain why he has to pay so much every month? It's one kid right? It's what, $1800 a month now? He really got shafted. Oh and yeah I'm sure he will be able to magically come up with the money by fining him or putting him in jail.

$21,000? Does that baby eat gold for breakfast or something? Just another fine example of what a complete and utter joke the American justice system is. A lot of young people with kids don't even make that much money in a year total, and this retard gets that JUST for child support for one child?

He can pose for Playgirl again, or sell his story to magazines, publish a book, movie, etc. He is not a victim.

Jennifer I agreed with a lot of your points until the last line about Alaska and those hillbilly having kids young or something like that. You are making this personal instead of simply debating points and you will lose every time. Everything you said up to that point is correct but since this is Sarah Palins grandchild you didn't mention a mans responsibilities when it comes to a child. I realize women entice men for financial reasons but I do not think that is why Bristol is doing it. I believe it is to show every man has a responsibility for his child if he decides to have sex unless he was raped. Trust me Bristols parents could easily afford the baby without Levi's money but want to in a sense teach him to grow up and act like a man and not a child.

Here are some FACTS:

Levi has been paying support all along... about $300 per month... with NO court order. It's a reasonable amount for a little baby, if you also assume Mommy has to pay the same.

Levi offered even more cash and Bristol refused to go pick it up.

Bristol didn't do what a RESPONSIBLE mother should have done when the baby was born. That would be to file for support the day after he was born.

Bristol instead chose to wait until Levi had a buck or two in the bank. Support is determined by salary. If she had filed when the baby was born, it would be a few hundred a month. But she waited until he made a few bucks to have it determined on his "new" salary, which, of course, includes whatever he gleaned from his 15 Minutes. In other words, support was determined on an artificially high income because he cashed in when he did.

Bristol is a conniving, money hungry wh0re who still doesn't even let Levi see the baby.

Sure, he should support the baby, but a) on a realistic income, not one that was a fluke for one year; b) according to what the BABY needs, not what Bristol wants; c) with equitable visitation.

If I were him, I'd file for 50/50 custody. That way, he gets to parent the child and would owe Bristol NOTHING.

There is a HUGE scandal coming down the pike with this family. Just wait and see. They are going DOWN.

The truth is the kid made money because of 15 minutes of fame that are already up, he'll never make that much money in a year again in his life.

The judge in this case is obviously not thinking anywhere near logically, like a few of the posters on TMZ.com.

Why is this kid being treated like he has a history of making $100,000 a year when he only made a $100,000 for one year and it was because an already up 15 minutes of fame? The judge like a few of the posters on this site is a moron.

I feel bad for this kid - I have never, EVER heard of a 19 or 20 year old kid ponying up this much a year in child support. Bristol doesn't even support herself - she lives with her parents and gets state health insurance for the baby.
He'd have been better off NOT working. Why is Bristol entitled to all the money he made?

I am an idiot, I fail to take into account no one cares about this kid, he had 15 minutes of fame and it's up, it's not even fair to say he had 15 minutes of fame, Sarah Palin had 15 minutes of fame and some of it rubbed off on this kid. It sucks that the judge is acting like this kid is going to make $100,000 year after year for the rest of his life all over the fame he got for being in a relationship with Sarah Palins slutty daughter.

Suck it up    

This has nothing to do with the Palins, quite frankly. This is the law. In some states, Levi would already be in jail right now.

If you don't like the way the law is written, fine. Try and change it. But the fact is that you've got to pay up. Don't knock up your teenage girlfriend, and you won't have to worry about it.
