With the release of his new book, Levi Johnston is taking shots at his baby mama Bristol Palin and her controversial family, sending zingers towards the checkered story that the Alaskan political family has proclaimed to be the truth about his relationship with his then teenage girlfriend.
Deer in the Headlights is Levi’s side of the story, and he’s been telling a very different vdersion than Bristol’s of how, when and why she got pregnant with their son Tripp.
“Bristol was on birth control for a long time,” Levi told The Huffington Post. “She got off it soon after Trig [Sarah Palin's son] was born. I think Trig was a big motivator for her. Her mother just had a child and I think Bristol was really jealous. She was the one who was supposed to have that kid and that’s when she got off of [birth control]. We weren’t practicing safe sex and she ended up getting pregnant.”
Levi continued: “We’d always talked about a kid. We’d been dating for several years. I think it kind of hurt her because she really wanted a kid so bad and seeing her mom have another one really made her want a kid now.”
The 21-year-old also revealed the way the family found out the news about Sarah’s pregnancy with Trig. “She kept it very secret. Willow had actually found the pregnancy stick in her bedroom. That’s when we all found out because she went around telling everybody. Bristol and the whole family was hurt that their mother couldn’t share that with them. Keeping it away from your own family is kind of messed up.”
Levi’s book Deer in the Headlights is available in bookstores now.
