Levi Johnston

Levi Keith Johnston (born May 3, 1990) is the former fiancé of Bristol Palin. He first received media attention in August 2008 when U.S. vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced that her daughter Bristol was five months pregnant with Johnston's baby and that the two were engaged. Ultimately, the couple ended their relationship, and Johnston and the Palin family engaged in several public feuds. After working in the Alaskan oil fields, Johnston began pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, aspiring to be a model and an actor. He has written a book based on his experiences with the Palins titled, Deer in the Headlights. Johnston was born in Alaska, the eldest child of Sherry (née Sampson) and Keith Johnston. He has a younger sister, Mercede "Sadie" Johnston. He attended Wasilla High School, where he played on the hockey team, but dropped out in his senior year. He worked full-time on the Alaska North Slope oil fields as an apprentice electrician, quitting in January 2009. According to Johnston, he and Bristol Palin began dating during their freshman year of high school. After losing a promise ring on a caribou hunt, Johnston had Bristol's name tattooed on his
