Recently there have been a few articles written about our ongoing custody situation.
In light of that, though we had hoped to keep all of this private, we have decided to set the record straight.
Because we are not interested in providing fodder for the tabloids we will keep our remarks focused only on the facts, and post them here on Facebook.
No we do not yet have a final legal custody agreement with Bristol Palin.
Yes it looks like we are headed back to court yet again, hopefully for the last time.
Reports of the amount owed for child support are grossly over inflated, but yes we are still paying on what we owe every single month.
We are only requesting joint custody and a reasonable child support agreement. We think this is fair, and believe it is in Tripp's best interests to have equal time with both parents, as well as with siblings on both sides of the family.
We have no wish to turn this into a public spectacle however we also do not want to be misrepresented and will correct misinformation as needed.
It is our hope that all of this will be resolved shortly as we have spent quite a lot of time, and quite a lot of money, with still no end in sight.
Hopefully this answered a few of your questions, and will keep the tabloids from manufacturing their own drama for the sake of magazine sales and internet clicks.
Levi and Sunny Johnston
I would imagine that this is in response to that Daily Mail article from last week declaring that there was a custody agreement in place, and the Radar Online article from today saying just the opposite.
Personally I see this as a positive step for Levi and Sunny in taking back the narrative and refusing to allow certain media outlets to fill in their silence with rumors and innuendo of their own.
Update: The post was taken down both on Levi and Sunny's Facebook pages.
Things that make you go "Hmmm."
