Levi Johnston, the former boyfriend of Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin’s daughter, writes his own book about their relationship and the pregnancy and reveals a different story, which practically calls the women’s stories “lies”. His book, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs” will be available to the public starting September 20, Associated Press reports.
The Associated Press writers have managed to buy a copy of Levi Johnston’s book earlier and his story about his experience with the Palin family is very different from the one presented by the former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, and her daughter, Bristol. There are many things that are told exactly in the opposite way.
For instance, Bristol sustains in her book, “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far”, released in June, that she lost her virginity to Levi while they were out camping with friends and she got drunk. Johnston retells the same story, but reveals that they have started their sex life long before that moment. He adds that in 2008, Bristol, whom he was dating since 2006, wanted to get pregnant because she got angry at her mother’s pregnancy. She believed that, at 17 years old, she should be the one having a baby and not her mother. When her parents found out about the pregnancy, her father got really upset and told Johnston to quit school and find a job. Sarah did not believe it at first but when it turned out to be true, she offered to adopt the baby in order to “avoid a scandal”. Bristol and Levi did not want to take into consideration that option. Their son was born in December 2008.
Sarah Palin says that Levi was not present at his son’s birth, but he says otherwise.
After becoming a mom, Bristol was very critic and moody, according to Levi. She accused him of wanting to show she is a bad mother and believed he was cheating on her. Bristol tells about their split soon after the birth and indicates that the cause was a text message on his cell phone which proved he was unfaithful.
Sarah Palin wrote her own book, called “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag”, in which she wrote that Johnston takes advantage of the Palin name, trying to gain popularity by criticizing them.
