The feuding between Levi Johnston and former Alaska governor and possible 2012 presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family continues, this time in book form. Johnston’s new tell-all, “Deer in the Headlines: My life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs,” is due out Tuesday (Sept. 20). The AP has gotten an advanced copy and the picture Johnston paints of Bristol Palin is rather unflattering.
The AP reports that Johnston writes that when Sarah Palin found out she was pregnant in March of 2008, Bristol was mad and thought she should be the one who was pregnant, so she told Levi they should become so.
Johnston also says that Bristol’s claim in her book “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far” that she lost her virginity on a camping trip with Johnston is not true – he says it happened much earlier in their relationship.
He also claims he was “too dumb” to use protection while dating Bristol, even though he knew getting pregnant was “what she wanted.” And finally, he claims when the Palins found out about the pregnancy, Sarah’s first reaction was that she and Todd adopt the baby to “avoid a scandal.”
This is not the only scandalous book about the Palins hitting shelves Tuesday. Joe McGinniss’ book “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” which alleges Palin’s cocaine use and extramarital affairs, also comes out Sept. 20.
