Levi Johnston Says Sarah Palin Wanted to Adopt His Baby


Levi Johnston is at it again. The almost son-in-law of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is throwing more accusations at the failed Vice Presidential candidate. Now he is saying Palin tried to cover up daughter Bristol's pregnancy -- by offering to adopt the child herself.

Johnston tells Vanity Fair in its October issue that the plan went something like this: Palin wouldn't tell anyone Bristol was pregnant, and then when the baby was born, Palin would announce she is adopting a baby. So in true soap opera fashion, Palin would have been mother to her own grandchild.

"Sarah kept mentioning this plan," alleges Johnson. "She was nagging -- she wouldn't give it up. She would say, 'So, are you gonna let me adopt him?' We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn't want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid."

Palin's spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests from the Associated Press for a response. But in the past Palin has laughed off virtually everything that comes out of Johnson's mouth.

And Johnston's mouth continued to roar to Vanity Fair. He says the Palin family home in Wasilla is not what it appears:

"The Palin house was much different from what many people expect of a normal family, even before she was nominated for vice president. There wasn't much parenting in that house. Sarah doesn't cook, Todd doesn't cook -- the kids would do it all themselves."

Johnston lived in the house for the two months preceeding the December birth of his baby boy, named Tripp. The impending marriage to Bristol was called off shortly thereafter.

Johnston says it was a different Sarah Palin who returned to Alaska following her and John McCain's crushing defeat last November.

"Sarah was sad for a while. She walked around the house pouting. I had assumed she was going to go back to her job as governor, but a week or two after she got back she started talking about how nice it would be to quit and write a book or do a show and make 'triple the money.' She would blatantly say, "I want to just take this money and quit being governor.'"

Palin did just that in July, and is now writing her memoirs. As for Johnston's future, he says he is pursuing a career as an actor or a model.
