Levi Johnston Takes Bristol Palin to Court for Joint Custody of Tripp

Their relationship may be long gone, but Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are still at odds over their son, Tripp.

Though the former vice presidential candidate”s daughter has had full custody of the little boy, her former fiancée has filed a petition asking for equal custody of the child.

In the documents, the 23-year-old asks for as much time with his son as the 4-year-old”s mother. However, Bristol responded claiming that he owes $66,000 in child support, hinting that the request is financially motivated.

Back in 2008, the pair experienced happy times, announcing both their engagement and her pregnancy during the presidential election. Young love didn”t last, though, and the two broke off their engagement in December 2008, reunited, then called it quits in August 2010. Since then, Levi married Sunny Oglesby.
