Levi Johnston Wants

FULL CUSTODY of Son

Fury Over Palin TV Show

8/6/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803_levi_johnston_tmzLevi Johnston believes Bristol Palin is a TERRIBLE PARENT -- and the proof is in her reality show ... in which she lets their son Tripp run wild, talk back, curse, and show no respect to his elders ... so he's decided to take action ... and seek full custody.

In case you're like most of the country, and haven't been watching Bristol's new reality show "Life's a Tripp" -- she and Levi's son has been a little ball of trouble ... and in one recent episode, even called his aunt Willow the f-word.

080312_bristol_launch_v2During the same episode, Bristol admits, "I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp."

Now, Levi's had enough -- telling TMZ, he's been watching the show and is "disgusted" by his son's language and behavior. Levi says his son is on a "downward spiral" and getting "no real parenting."

Levi tells us, Tripp "deserves a better family" than what Bristol and the rest of the Palins are providing -- adding, "I love my son more than anything ... and I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way."

To ensure that happens, Levi dropped by the courthouse in Wasilla, Alaska this week to pick up all the necessary paperwork to obtain full custody of Tripp -- and he plans to file it ASAP.

Calls to Bristol were not returned.

Do you think Russia will buy back Alaska? We can throw in Florida? Ok- and Jersey. Boy what a Great United States it would be :)

He's going to wave whatever piece of dirt he has on Sarah Palin and they (the Palins ) will back down.

I can't wait for the day to happen where we find out what causes the Palins to cave each and every time there's a flare-up betweens these inbreds.

I'm convinced Sarah Palin seduced him before she ran for VP and that he was, at the time, a minor. My opinion.

Poor kid is just frustrated he is already the smartest one in the family.

Let me get this straight. Levi hasn't paid child support, hasn't even bothered visiting his son in several years, has gotten another woman pregnant who he also can't support, and now he wants custody of this child?

Wow, didn't think Levi could afford cable TV. Maybe he was watching the show at the local homeless shelter.

He is no better than Bristol - first chance he would have to do the same, he would do it. He is just jealous that he did not get offered a show. They are both the same.

Levi needs money for his next baby.. So look for him to give interviews to the Insider, Entertainment Tonight and others.

Levi Johnston is a publicity hungry dumb ass creep who pays no child support. What a douche.

Reality shows can actually show reality. Bristol Palin should have had a psychological test when she wanted to do a reality show. Still it shows how she is raising Tripp, while I might have doubts if Levi would be the better parent, it is obvious that she is horrible at being a mother. Please someone save that poor child!

I cannot stand the Palins and this dumb reality show is going to last about as long as her relationship with Levi, unless it is over and done with already, one can only hope. She is like her Mother, all mouth and nothing upstairs.

No judge in their right mind would give this tool custody of a child.

regardless the kid is a disrespectful monster and Palin and her sister sit there as his devil eyes watch them squirm. WEIRD. How many times did they threaten to do SOMETHING as the kid taunted them. Watch the kids eyes as he out smarts those two fools.
