Sarah Palin's 18-year-old daughter Bristol is seeking full custody of her son Tripp as well as child support from her baby daddy Levi Johntson.

Bristol wanted the custody proceedings to be kept private, but Levi filed a petition saying in an affidavit, "I do not feel protected against Sarah Palin in a closed proceeding. I hope that if it is open she will stay out of it."

Levi previously said that the Palin family had "pushed him over the edge" when it came to his visits with one-year-old Tripp, and said he would be filing for joint custody, but now Bristol claims he only sees his son sporadically and wants that Playgirl money to help her raise the boy!

Now that Sarah Palin's a best-selling author and possibly even more powerful than ever, will she help to strike Levi down or will the little guy prevail?
