Reports have confirmed that Bristol Palin, (the daugther of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin), has dumped her boyfriend.Her ex-beau, Levi Johnston, made many appearances with the Palin family during the 2008 presidential election campaign. Bristol and Levi made the announcement that she was pregnant, at the young age of seventeen. Their child, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, was born in late December of 2008, and the pair announced that they would get married as soon as Bristol turned 18 years old.
Levi’s sister, Mercede, has been giving Star Magazine exclusive reports about the pair’s relationship. Mercede claims Bristol has made it virtually impossible for her brother Levi to see his child. She says Bristol has cut Levi out of their lives completely, and Levi makes attempts to see his son every single day. She claims Bristol refuses to let Tripp visit the Johnston family because they are “white trash.” She also refuses to let him watch the baby for a few hours, unless she needs a babysitter for the afternoon.
Mercede has also reported that former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin support’s Bristol’s treatment toward Levi. Mercede said “I used to love Sarah…But I’ve lost lots of respect for her.” The Palin/Johnston feud began back in January, and Mercede released a very direct statement: “Umm, I’m not allowed to see my nephew and my mom isn’t either. We aren’t Palins so therefore we are white trash and Bristol doesn’t want her baby around us. So mom and I are really upset over it. I just hope Levi pulls his head out of his butt and lets us see our nephew and her grandbaby.” Mercede also said Bristol has dropped out of school, and when Bristol found out she was pregnant, she told Levi she wished the baby wasn’t his.
Although we haven’t heard much from the Johnston family until now, Levi’s mother was arrested on drug-related charges shortly after his child was born. A search warrant in an undercover drug investigation led to the arrest of Sherry Johnston, and she was charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance. She was charged with second-degree misconduct, which typically means she was either manufacturing or delivering drugs, as well as fourth-degree misconduct, typically a charge associated with posession. The price tag of Tripp’s baby photos soared to nearly $300,000 after her arrest.
