“Teen Mom OG” newcomer Bristol Palin‘s baby daddy is going to appear on the upcoming season of her reality show, which is a lucky break for him because he just got hit with a lawsuit for thousands of dollars in unpaid legal fees.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Levi Johnston was sued by Alaska attorney Darryl Thompson over the work he provided during the child custody case between Johnston and Palin over their son, Tripp.
In total, Thompson claims the former Palin fiancé owes $12,892.50 for all his services, and the attorney claims Johnston continues to “refuse to pay.”
Johnston and Palin had a bitter war over the custody situation with Tripp, mostly because Bristol claimed her baby daddy hadn’t paid a dime in child support. They eventually got it all straightened out, and now have an order that gives Palin the majority of the time with 9-year-old Tripp, and Levi gets visitation. He claimed at the time that it cost over $100,000 in legal fees to hammer out the agreement between the two parents.
Since then, it appears he has a positive relationship with Palin regarding their son, and the reality star even gave him a shout out the other day on IG for being a good dad.
Johnston and his wife, Sunny, are also set to appear on the upcoming season of “Teen Mom,” which could definitely help cover that outstanding legal bill.
Johnston’s ex-attorney may have been paying attention to the “Teen Mom” forums as well, because he’s now demanding a judgment to collect the entire $12,000.
