$1,688.42 is not a little small amount of money, especially for a guy who has the intellect of a door stopper. That's a LOT of trips to the blood-bank, for Mr. Johnston.

I'm not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure that's how he got into this mess in the first place.

At least once.

As his infamy (and earning potential) decreases, his payment obligation decreses.

No he's not.

Sadly, he wasn't man enough to own up to his responsibilities and it took a court to force him to do the right thing.

Child support is based on income.

His monthly payment will go down as he grows moobs and can no longer book gigs with the nudie mags.=)

Support is generally based as a percentage of his income, and can be adjusted by the court as his income changes.

At least its not a progressive rate - that's when you get screwed.

More trips to pose naked for gay magazines for you, Mr Johnston. Wish they had been ordered to pay even more. Bleed the sucker dry.

Well, consider that this amount was based on his Playboy venture, all his interviews in magazines, videos on gossip entertainment shows of him changing his son’s diapers, etc...

Now I’m sure when the media is done with him, his income will be adjusted to his actual potential wage (minimum wage) and the amount will be greatly reduced.

However he is the one who thought he shouldn’t have to pay ANYTHING even after making boatloads of money showing off his non-wiener.

"What is his income and where does it come from?"

TMZ had previously listed all of his income from last year that was disclosed in court filings. It was substantial - in the hundreds of thousands. IIRC, it virtually all came from his Playgirl spread (pardon the mental image), and appearance fees, to include Entertainment Tonight and others.

Thanks for the ping. This all could have been handled quietly and discreetly, which is what Bristol wanted. Not Levi and his crack lawyer Rex Butler...they wanted a circus.

The joke's on them. I knew Levi was fixing to have to bend over when Van Flein petitioned the court to subpoena financial records from places like CNN...LOL.

Inevitably, Bristol is going to end up being much richer than he is. The good news is, they were never married, so he can't turn round, and try and rob her of some of her money, like Kevin Federline did to Britney Spears.

You can bet he's spent whatever he made from it long ago... probably on hookers and booze.

Yep, Bristol is already getting acting gigs. I can easily see her becoming a character actress.

What's funny is that Sarah basically gave him another chance around Thanksgiving. He could have been a part of the family. Now he's completely exposed and his liberal friends will drop him like a bad habit.

He made $100,000 last year so that is about 20% of his income. Actually looking at it that way many men pay way more than 20% of income for child support!

In comparison to the money Mr. Johnson has made this last year, $18k is a good start.

Chalk one up for the good guys..or should I say good gal. The person who shall not be named in my posts is being handled by a democratic operative so I’m sure the money is no big deal for them. They will just use him for what he’s worth and then they will despose of him. Thats what community organizers do.

The company he worked for reduced his salary on paper, and gave him an American Express gold card with which he purchased goods and services for himself. It was not counted as remuneration, not taxed, and the company wrote everything off as a business expense. Pretty nifty, huh?

Good for Bristol. I hope Bristol will someday find a real man who will be a proper father for Tripp. Mr. Gay Porn Star is just a sperm donor.

On another note, David Letterman booked Mitt Romney for next to counter Sarah Palin propping up Jay Leno’s return to Late Night
