(Newser) – Levi Johnston has complied with a judge’s order to pay overdue child support to Bristol Palin, with a lawyer for Johnston babymama/daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin telling TMZ that a $21,561.12 check has indeed cleared. Asked where Johnston, 19 and coming off an appearance in Playgirl, got the scratch he owes Bristol Palin as she cares for their infant son, Tripp, his rep says, “The money came out of his pocket.”
