Bristol Palin: Levi Johnston owes child support

Bristol Palin: Levi Johnston owes child supportFollow @lizkellynelson on Twitter Twitterbristol-palin-levi-johnston-child-supportLevi Johnston may be expecting another child with new girlfriend Sunny Oglesby, but ex-girlfriend (and baby mama) Bristol Palin says Johnston is a deadbeat dad who owes $39,000 in child support. Johnston is required to pay $1,750 a month in child support for the couple's three-year-old son Tripp but, reports TMZ, Palin says Johnston hasn't made a payment in 22 months.

"We forbore pursuing child support collection in the (perhaps naive) hope that Mr. Johnston would do what men are supposed to do and pay his support obligation voluntarily," Palin's lawyer tells TMZ.

So far, Palin isn't seeking to enforce the order for her ex to pay up. Instead, she's taking her case to the court of public opinion -- the Internet.

"We were also concerned that garnishment or other aggressive collection efforts could exacerbate an already strained relationship," says the lawyer.

Luckily, Palin has other sources of income. Her new reality show, "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp,"is set to begin airing later this year on Lifetime.
