You just thought that Levi Johnston was out of your life forever.

But Bristol Plain's former fiancé and the father of her 4-year-old son Tripp is back in the headlines again today after the Associated Press reports that he's seeking at least equal custody of his son. Johnston filed court documents last month for joint legal custody of Tripp, and claims that the arrangement is in his child's best interest.

Palin currently has primary physical custody and Johnston pays child support. Although, Palin's lawyer John Tiemessen told the AP that, as of October, Johnston owed about $66,000 in back payments.

Since Johnston and the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin split — at the wise old ages of 20 and 19, respectively —in 2010, he has become a father for a second time. Johnston welcomed baby girl Breeze Beretta on September 2012, about six weeks before he walked down the aisle with Breeze's mama, Alaska teacher Sunny Ogelsby.

Although Palin has gone a little Hollywood in recent years, appearing on "Dancing With the Stars" and the scripted TV drama "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," both she and her ex still reside in Alaska.

With the former couple feuding again, let's hope they live on opposite ends of Wasilla!
