(Newser) – Levi Johnston is standing his ground against Alaska's first family, insisting that he did live at Sarah Palin’s house for two months, which the Palins deny. “They said I didn’t live there,” Johnston said on CBS' Early Show. “They say I ‘stayed there.’ I had all my stuff there. So, if you wanna call it ‘staying there,’ that’s fine.”

Johnston says the Palins have been cold to him since the election. He can see infant son Tripp, whose mother is Bristol Palin, whenever he wants, but he's not allowed to take the child out of the house. Asked what the most common misconception the public has about him, Johnston replied, “Probably that my family’s white trash.”
