Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston

Strike Custody Deal

8/14/2010 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have reached a settlement in their custody case.

0803_bristol_levi_Getty_EX
Under the deal, filed with an Alaska Superior Court, Bristol will get primary physical custody of Tripp.  Levi will have visitation, between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM on Saturdays and 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM on Wednesdays.

Levi has to pay Bristol child support.  The amount isn't stated, but the agreement says the calculation is based on earnings of $72,000 a year.

And get this ... Under the agreement filed with the court, the parties agree not to "speak badly about the other parent in front of the child ... or allow anyone else to speak badly about the other parent or members of their family in front of the child."

And it goes on ... "The parties agree that they shall not allow the child to visit with, or interact with, any family member who publicly ... or in front of the child, criticizes the other parent or the other parent's family."

For the few mathematically challenged, how can Sarah have had Trip, the baby, and Trig, the grandson all on her own. They overlap in age and Sarah would have had to be pregnant while giving birth. Anyone? Anyone?

Ginger-
Clearly you're logically challenged, no one is saying that SP gave birth to Tripp, it's out in the open that it's Bristol's child! Google the palin deception and you'll find out all you need to know, it's believed by some that Trig and Tripp are both Bristol's kids, and the timelines don't overlap, actually.

It's clear that the only person in the families who has continually publicly slammed anyone is Levi's sister Mercede. She's got a ghostwritten blog that continually beats on the Palins and Bristol. Under this agreement, she has to knock that off if she wants to see her nephew. (what kind of aunt does that anyways????)

Levi is such a stupid waste of space. Sarah has kept her cool about that A-hole- he's done nothing but disgraced that family He was lucky to be associated with them. HE is white trash. They were a HUGE step up for him. HE is a s***bag who talks Sh*t about the Palins all the time in the media- the media that is controlled by DEMS/LIBS. They love that he is stupid and take advantage every chance they can. GO PALIN!

Maybe the baby will do everyone a favor and shove mom and dad into the bathtub with a toaster.

Nothing spells trailer trash like having a child and a grandchild the same age.

Mercede has shown remarkable restraint, actually; those of us who have followed her story know that. Her blog is not ghostwritten (as Palin's Facebook is); she's actually quite talented, a lovely girl who has shown considerable class after everything that has happened to her and her family simply because her brother's girlfriend's mother was made a political celebrity. It is Bristol and her mother who speak ill of Levi's family, as well as of Levi. And until he actually grows a pair, his sister is not going to see Tripp anyway because Bristol the Mean Girl doesn't want her to. Petty and small, just like her mother.

Yea..    

Oh I get it. It's perfectly ok for Levi & family to trash talk the Palin's but not ok the other way around. It's that infamous liberal double standard.

"Are you listening Sarah Palin"? Quit putting in jabs because you don't like someone for their politics. I thought you were better than Perez Hilton and his snide comments against anyone who disagree with his social stances, guess you are one in the same.
