Apparently Levi Johnston still has a lot to learn when it comes to being a responsible adult.
It is being reported that Bristol Palin’s ex and father of their three-year-old son Tripp, squandered away more than $1 million on toys - and not for his son. A source tells Us Weekly that Johnston, 22, spent his money on guns, boats, and four-wheelers, and as a result he is now broke and living at home with his mother in Alaska.
Johnston’s reported spending habits are being highly criticized as in insider reveals to Us that he has continually failed to pay child support for his son.
“Levi hasn’t paid child support in nearly two years,” the insider said. “And he has little contact with Tripp.”
The onetime mayoral hopeful, who is also currently expecting a child – a girl – with girlfriend, Sunny Oglesby, 20, has garnered an unflattering reputation as an absent father and the Daily Mail reports that he has amassed a debt of $38,000 in backed child support.
However, a former rep for Johnston, Tank Jones, is attempting to dispel allegations of his former clients’ financial trouble by claiming that the severing of his professional relationship with Johnston was a mutual decision and not due to Johnston's finances or lack thereof.
“I wanted work on other projects. This was a mutual decision,” Jones told Us. “I would think he would want to do some different things too. I would never leave him at a low point.”
Only Johnston and his accountant know the real truth about his finances but one can only hope that he will have everything sorted out before bringing another child into the mix.
