According to TMZ, a judge recently ordered Levi to pay Bristol a whopping $60K in backed child support for their 7-year-old son Tripp. While the judge had agreed to adjust Johnston’s current support payments due to his reduced income, he decided the poppa must still fork over the money he skimped out on when he was flush with cash.
The good news is, the Alaskan has been keeping up with his monthly contributions to Ms. Palin. Even though the $60K figure is steep, Levi hopes to slowly chip away at the amount over time in addition to maintaining his current payments.
To make matters even better, the exes are reportedly in a great place right now, especially since they finally settled on joint custody earlier this year. L.J. had fought the momma on issues of visitation for YEARS before a judge eventually ruled in his favor.

Wow! It really looks like Levi has turned his life around.
Now that Bristol has settled with her baby daddy AND ex-fianc├â┬⌐ Dakota Meyer, she must be feeling AWESOME. It’s always better to work things in the end… it’s what’s best for the kiddos!
Congrats, you two!
