Levi Johnston -- Paid in Full

3/8/2010 9:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Levi Johnston finally wrote a check that his naked ass could cash -- the $21k he owed his baby mama Bristol Palin in back child support payments for their son Tripp.



TMZ spoke with Bristol's lawyer who tells us Levi's attorney recently delivered a check for $21,561.12 -- the full amount that an Alaska judge ordered Levi to pay ... and we're told the check cleared.

Levi is still ordered to pay $1,750 a month in child support payments.

As for where the money came from -- Levi's rep tells us, "The money came out of his pocket."

I think all Dad's should pay child support, but there's a difference between child support and making the father live in the gutter and eat out of the trash cans. Plus, I think this all has to do with her mom is, Hand Reader.

$1750.00 for one child that is outrageous! I was a divorced mom with two kids and received 545.00 a month- and worked, excuse me but what does Ms Palin do- she still lives with her parents, give me a flippn break-

Well considering the only reason Levi made the $ from Playgirl is because he got the governor's daughter pregnant it seems only right that this paycheck should be used for child support. Also, Bristol would be smart to put any $ she gets from this loser into an account and don't expect much more. I think full-time employment will always be an issue for Levi. He has no skills besides standing there looking cute. Bristol is working, going to school and taking care of the baby. She deserves some support from the baby daddy.

You gonna play, you gonna pay!

If he could not afford what he was ordered to pay, he would not be made to pay it. You only pay 25% of your MONTHLY income to the child. Believe me; he can afford it!

$1,750 * 12 months = $21,000 a year in Child Support
$21,000 * 18 years = $378,000

..yikes.. I guess if you want to make sure that you don't end up like Levi, get the $500 surgery. (condoms break)

He is trash. You don't dog your babies mother and grandmother to the whole world. I don't care who you are. What a tool. They had to take him to court to squeeze the money out of him.

The father pays based on his income, or potential income. There is no reason for a man to live the high life and make the mother of his child struggle and worry to feed, clothe, and take care of his child.

Statistics show that single mothers usually end up much worse financially than do the single fathers. Why would anyone undervalue the amount of time a woman has to give to take care of babies and children? I've heard men talk, and they sound disgustingly selfish, cruel, and downright ignorant (stupid). They have no idea what a woman gives to raise a child, and most of them don't seem to care.

It's a shame when a judge and court has to order a man to do what he should be doing eagerly on his own efforts.

They are all nasty trailer trash, both sides of the family. That said, Levi needed to man up and pay his due child support. Now, what is Bristol going to do? She still lives at home with mommy and the retard. Is she going to work, or just stay home filing her nails and collecting checks from Levi? It took 2 to get nekkid and make the kid, now they both need to work and support it. Better yet, take the kid away and give it to a decent couple.

This snotty little freeloading witch is just like her mother. The judge is a real psycho who was probably in Sarah's camp a very long time ago for other reasons. Nobody pays this kind of money for one child - NOBODY! The real travesty IS that ho Bristol is living with her millionaire mom and dad while extracting this out of poor Levi.
