These two just can't seem to get along!
Although Levi lost in his last court battle against Bristol, this time the father has brought some evidence to back himself up!
It all started when Bristol took Tripp down to Scottsdale, Arizona for a six month work training program, something which Levi says she did without his approval! Despite the fact that the two already had been in court before, Levi opened up a new case and got a temporary restraining order that made it clear Bristol would have to bring Tripp back to Alaska as soon as possible!
But Bristol's legal team claims Levi knew about her trip beforehand, and was totally fine with it!
Here's what Bristol's lawyer submitted to the court:
“Levi had been informed of these plans and had not objected. Bristol returned to Alaska for her school break in December and Levi had Christmas visitation with Tripp.”
The lawyer is also arguing that if Levi had informed the court of the previous case he was involved in with Bristol - that restraining order would've never materialized in the first place!
But Levi is hoping he's got an ace up his sleeve as he's claiming that he's got the texts to prove his case!
Here is a supposed conversation between the two that was initiated when Bristol informed Levi that she was taking Tripp with her on a trip:
" Bristol - 'Hey I thought our flight left tomorrow, but it leaves midnight tonight'
Levi - 'When does my son get back? I told u … There is not chance you are taking him there for another 3 months. TRIPP wants and needs his father, Bristol. U need to let him stay with me or fly him back up to me when I’m back from work. That’s completely reasonable. I no [sic] u trust our sons safe with me and is taken care of so I don’t understand why u don’t like him with his father. If u only new the things he says to me and how happy he is with his dad and little sister. He really needs us both and I need him Bristol.'
Bristol - 'Look Levi, bfeore [Levi's new wife] sunny got involved in this, you were fine with me being in school. Tripp is enrolled in school in AZ and will be back when I’m done with training.”
Levi - 'Tripp needs to be in Alaska. We’re [sic] the rest of his family is. How can u be so selfish and no I was never EVER ok with u taking my son anywhere or put on your TV show. It’s all crap. He deserves more then [sic] that. He needs his dad and my family just as much as yours. And more importantly. Tripp needs stability and a routine and sports. And all that. I really hope and pray u put 2 and 2 together one day. It’s not right. Or fair to our son. Go ahead and ask him if he want to stay with dad or go with u. Bet he says dad. Just saying Bristol. Tripps old enough to tell u what he wants now.'"
Levi Johnston is hoping to use this new evidence to convince the courts to give him more mandatory time with his son, but one of Bristol's main arguments against this request is that Levi is, according to her, still behind on his child support payments, and owes a whopping $66,8080.57!!!
Levi claims that number is WAY off!
For the sake of Tripp, we wish that these two could somehow figure out the best possible way to be parents without the court's involvement. Having kids is a huge responsibility, so everyone needs to act like responsible adults. Cut out all the petty shizz!
Hopefully a fair and agreeable solution is in both these parents' future!!!
