(Newser) – If her hunky babydaddy is going to go around stripping for cash, Bristol Palin thinks she and his son should see some of it. Palin filed documents Wednesday demanding that Levi Johnston pay her $1,750 per month in child support, retroactive to the baby's birth over a year ago. She estimates he made more than $105,000 in 2009 and says son Tripp has seen only $4,400 of that, TMZ reports.

Of course Bristol, whose parents have raked in millions since mom quit as Alaska governor, can't exactly cry poverty: She and Sarah Palin were reportedly paid over $100,000 for the mother-daughter-and-two-babies photo shoot they did for the cover of In Touch magazine.
