Levi Johnston vs. Bristol Palin: Who's the Better Parent?

bristol palin. trippLooks like Bristol Palin will have a new reason to hate her ex. There are reports that Levi Johnston wants to sue the reality TV star for full custody of their son Tripp.

Fans of Palin's show Life's a Tripp are well aware of her feelings about Levi. She paints him as a deadbeat dad who could care less about a relationship with his child. Well, he sure seems interested now. After seeing his son curse and misbehave on her Lifetime series, Levi wants to raise his son, according to TMZ.


During an episode, the 3-year-old yells the f-word at his aunt Willow and mom. The women are shocked but do little more than giggle about it. Later Bristol admits, "I'm doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp." No kidding.

Now Levi thinks he can do a better job. He said that he was "disgusted" by his son's tantrum and that the tot was on a "downward spiral" and getting "no real parenting."

Not sure if I am buying his sudden concerned dad routine. What should upset him is the fact that Tripp spends so much more time with Bristol's boyfriend Gino, he calls him "daddy." To be honest, this whole custody battle smells like a publicity stunt to me. Perhaps this is a part of some desperate effort to get a reality TV show of his own. 

Still, Levi insists, "I love my son more than anything ... and I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way ..." He has even dropped by the Wasilla, Alaska courthouse to pick up the necessary paperwork. But he's going to have to do a lot more than that to prove he would make a better parent than Bristol. Her disciplining troubles aside, she appears to be a loving, nurturing, stable mom. That's more than anyone can say about Levi.
