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.

I agree with #10 and I don't think he has a high school diploma. He wanted attention and now he has it...maybe next time it will not be so funny.

Well done Sarah, you've just shown 200 million potential voters that you are so vindictive, you will even have your grandchild's father thrown in prison for daring to cross your morally corrupt family.

What a vindictive family the Palins are.... they claim to represent Christian morals, but they seem to be as far from that as possible.

I only got a few posts in before I had to comment .... are you suggesting that Christians can't or shouldn't ask for child support? Child support is only for agnostics or atheists?

If that's the case, I'll stay married to my hubby of 28 years & continue to claim Jesus as my Savior!

5. I think maybe the article needs to be reread. That's not Levi Jerksons monthly CHILD SUPPORT payment. That is his BACK child support, you know that he HASN'T been paying. He has spent his 15 mins. flashing himself all over tv
and playgirl on somebodys dime. This is his child and it is about time for him to man up and get a real job. Maybe he should have been more careful with bodily fluids! I'm not a big fan of Palin but being vindictive has nothing to do with child support it is a legal AND a moral responsibility. Quit whinning fellas and pay up!!!

Suck it up    

The amount he has to pay is based on his income this past year, which was around $100,000. He ain't broke. This is BACK child support. The future amount will be determined in September.

If Levi had a brain, he would get a steady job with a reasonable income that they could base future child support payments on. But nooooo, he keeps does things like Playgirl shoot pay-per-view movies.

Levi has no one to blame but himself, and that sorry lawyer that advises him.

As for seeing his kid, he should have filed if he had a huge problem with it. But he never did. As long as this never went to court, he could use the "she won't let me see him" meme as an excuse to trash the family, get more publicity, and land more deals.

Sarah Palin is educated. She has a college degree, but it's not from Harvard. Of course, Obama claims that he graduated from Harvard, but no one can prove that because he has all his records "sealed". Don't ya wonder why he did that?

The amount is based on his income. The deadbeat needs to pay up. It's disgusting that "men" have to be forced by the courts to step up and take responsibility for their own children, something if they were true men they'd do automatically. Just goes to show his lack of maturity and love for the child.

Talk about a joke. What family has the resources to pay this? I would venture to say the Palins are far better off then the Johnstons. These payment need to be based on ability to pay, not on a booked value.

Now the Alaska State Government should investigate this matter since its clear Sarah Palin might have used her influence in this matter. According to several areas, Palin and this Judge are close friends. And its quite possible that Palin used her position as former Governor to apply pressure, which would be unlawful in Alaska. The Judge should have excused himself from the case if this is true. But with that said, Levi if you owe it, pay it up. Then have your lawyers investigate Grandma.

It doesn't matter how much money the Palin's have. It's Levi's son and he needs to be a man and support HIS son.

#42 - you are so right! What is wrong with you people? He's the father, man up and takes care of your child. People, if this happened to a female family member wouldn't you want the dead beat father to pay up??? It doesn’t matter who the mother or grandparents are.
I’ve been helping my sister, a single mother for 10 years because the child’s father would only pay 150.00 a month. And you had to call him and sometimes you still wouldn’t get the money. You tell me just how far you would get with only 150.00 dollars. Mothers on welfare get more money than she did.

Reality    

Levi didn't stand a chance against the Palins. The trial was in Alaska, Palin is the ex govenor of Alaska. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who pulls the strings. I hope Levi lets the mud fly in his tell all book.

The lawyer conveniently crunched the numbers until they equaled almost exactly the amount he was paid for his Playgirl stint. What an amazing coincidence.

This Palin family is so ghetto.
