Levi Johnston the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin's grandson Tripp, had pointed words for the former vice presidential candidate Wednesday on CBS's "The Early Show."
Johnston denied Palin's claims that he never lived at their house, as he said he stayed at the Palin house on such an extended basis that he actually kept his toiletries there. When asked if Palin was lying about his stay under her roof, Johnston nodded in agreement.
Johnston, said he wanted to get his side of the story out there. He said that his relationship with the Alaska governor's daughter Bristol -- in which marriage was being discussed -- deteriorated in the intense glare of the media spotlight once Palin was announce as Sen. John McCain's running mate.
Johnston's family is fearful of possible custody proceedings, CBS reported, because of the governor's power and influence in Alaska.
