Levi Johnson Gets Joint Custody with Son
The long seven year child custody battle between Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin appears to be resolved. Johnson shared on social media that he had spent over 100K on 3 different attorneys but that it was all worth it in the end.
“I’m so happy to have my son in my life, and to put all of this back in forth in the courts behind me,” shared Johnson who is happy to be co-parenting his son.
When Johnson got behind by $66K in child support a firestorm of publicity broke out between him and the mother of his child, Bristol Palin who was not very happy with the situation. He claimed she was keeping his son from him and she responded with a public statement saying that he failed to keep up with child support payments.
Legal action began in 2013 and it has taken seven years to bring the custody battle to resolution.
Bristol Palin was 17 and Levi Johnson just 18 when the couple were first engaged. She was five months along in her pregnancy. Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston was born on the morning of Dec. 27, 2008. Long story short, they broke their engagement one month after their sons birth and went their separate ways only to reunite again months later, engagement back on. Then finally, it was over, really over.
Johnston went on to marry Sunny Oglesby in October, 2012. In addition to his son, Johnson has two daughters with Oglesby, Breeze Beretta and Indy Rae who was born in January 2015.
