Levi Johnston Considering Full Custody of Son

ABC/RICK ROWELL(LOS ANGELES) -- Dismayed by a reality-TV show featuring his ex-fiancee, Bristol Palin, and their son, Tripp, Levi Johnston plans to seek full custody of the boy.

In a statement to ABC News, Johnston wrote, “I want full or half custody of Tripp. His room is already set up in my house and just waiting for him.”

Palin, 21, and 3-year-old Tripp are featured on the Lifetime show, Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp.  Johnston says the show is proof that his ex is a terrible parent and his son is “on a downward spiral,” the gossip website TMZ reported.

TMZ reported that Johnston, 22, is so “disgusted” by his son’s language and behavior that he obtained the required court papers to file the custody petition.

“I love my son more than anything … and I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way,” Johnston reportedly told TMZ.

Johnston was Palin’s high school boyfriend. The pair have been engaged twice but are no longer a couple. Under the terms of their child-custody agreement, Palin has primary custody and Johnston may visit Tripp. The agreement prohibits either parent from publicly disparaging the other.

Palin is the daughter of former Alaska governor and one-time Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The disclosure during her mother’s 2008 campaign that Bristol Palin, then 17, was pregnant created sweeping controversy.

Levi Johnston’s Girlfriend Is Pregnant

Donna Ward/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Levi Johnston is going to be a dad again.

A source close to Bristol Palin’s ex-fiance told ABC News that Johnston’s girlfriend, Sunny Oglesby, has been pregnant for “about four or five months.” The source would not comment on whether the two plan to get married.

Johnston, 21, and Oglesby, 20, have been dating for a year.

This will be the second child for Johnston, who fathered a son with Bristol Palin, the eldest daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, in 2008. Johnston and Bristol Palin called off their engagement in March 2009, got engaged again in July 2010, and split up once and for all weeks later.

Johnston’s book Deer in the Headlights, released in September, claimed that Bristol Palin wanted to get pregnant because she was jealous of her mother’s pregnancy with son Trig. Having a baby of her own, he wrote, was exactly “what she wanted.”
