Levi Johnston: Bristol Convinced Me to Get Her Pregnant

He's never been one to keep secrets, and now Bristol Palin's ex, Levi Johnston is letting it all out in his new book "Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs" out September 20.

According to the tell-all, Bristol was so angered by her mother, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's 2008 pregnancy with her Trig, that she actually convinced the Playgirl to get her pregnant as revenge a month before her mom's due date.

As for why he carried out the alleged request, the hockey player reveals that he knew "it's what she wanted" adding that he was "too dumb" to use any form of protection.

Johnston also claims that when he and Bristol went to Sarah with the baby news, she thought they were playing a joke on her, but after the bombshell sunk in she later suggested the two put the child up for adoption to "avoid a scandal."

After dismissing the idea, Levi says Palin did not want the baby to call her grandma, but instead insisted that Tripp call her "Mommy Sarah."

When asked about her ex's forthcoming book, Bristol, who currently has her memoir "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far" on store shelves now, told "The Tonight Show," that Johnston is "gonna have to find a screenwriter or something to come up with more obnoxious lies, so I’m not worried about it."
