, ex boyfriend of ’s daughter, Bristol, has reportedly wasted nearly $1 million on luxuries. The 22 year old is now penniless and living with his mom in Alaska.
Johnston’s 15 minute of fame might have made him rich, but it looks like it didn’t take the money to fly out of hands as quickly as it came. A source told US weekly that “Levi made more than $1 million and squandered it on guns, boats and four-wheelers”. Nearly all of his wealth is attributed to the chance he got to step into the stop light after his girl friend’s mother, Sarah Palin was selected as vice Presidential running mate in 2008 elections.
His high profile relationship also led him to publish a book, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs” and allowing him to pitch a reality show about his bid to run of mayor of Wasilla Alaska. Despite all efforts the show failed to get picked up by the audience. In 2010, Johnston made another effort to gain publicity by posing nearly nude for Playgirls winter cover. But now, a source tells that the 22 year old is broke and has found temporarily shelter in mommy’s home.
Johnston is also the father to Bristol Palin’s 3 year old son, Tripp, but has done nothing fatherly so far, according to the source. “Levi hasn’t paid child support in nearly two years,” the source said. “And he has little contact with Tripp.” He currently owes $38000 to ex girlfriend and their son according to Daily Mail.
Johnston claims that he loves his son but Bristol is keeping their child away from him."No, I will never be a dead beat dad”, Johnston told Inside Edition, “I love Tripp more than anything and he is my son but I don't feel like a dad to him. Not by choice, though ... hopefully one day I can be."
Bristol Palin denies any such allegation.
Johnston is currently expecting a daughter with girlfriend, Sunny Oglesby and is planning to name her after the Italian gun maker, Breeze Beretta.
Johnston’s former representative, Tank Jones is trying to dispel rumors about his client’s financial troubles claiming that ending his professional relationship with Johnston was a mutual decision and has nothing to do with Johnston’s finances declaring that he would never leave his client’s side no matter how difficult a situation he’s passing from.
