We already know what Levi had said in general yesterday on "The Insider" about the parentage of Trig, but the video clip which is available from today of this particular part of the conversation about who is Trig's mother is still fascinating to watch:
It is noteworthy that Levi says at the beginning of the conversation that Trig is Sarah's baby "to my knowledge", and then shortly afterwards, after being pressed further by the panel with questions such as "Did you see her pregnant?", he answers with the toned-down "as far as I know, yeah".
That is interesting, because in my last post I already pointed out that there is no apparent reason why Levi shouldn't know the whole truth about Trig's parentage with absolute certainty - as he was apparently "present" when everything happened, including the birth of Trig. However, from his wording on "The Insider" it appears that he merely thinks that "Trig is Sarah's baby". It is not my impression from the interview on "The Insider" that he has actual "first-hand" knowledge about the parentage. Otherwise he certainly would have said it in a much stronger way.
There are several other comments from Levi which allow us to add more pieces to the overall puzzle. He says that Bristol takes advice from her mom, and that friends told Levi that Bristol said that Sarah wanted him out of her life.
Furthermore, he "knows things", but is not sure whether they will ever come out. He never heard anything about Sarah cheating, and he "thinks" that Todd is Trig's father. Levi doesn't come across very firm on this point, either - and we should not forget that according to Levi's description in Vanity Fair, Sarah and Todd "didn't talk to each other once the cameras had left" and that he "never saw them sleep in the same bedroom". Levi even said in Vanity Fair directly: "I don't know HOW she got pregnant".
Now to our little bombshells: For the first time ever, as far as I can recall, Levi talks about the fact that his relationship with Bristol was an "on and off" relationship, although he remains quite cryptic. Being asked whether there was any infidelity between him and Bristol, did Bristol ever cheat on you, did you ever stray out of the relationship, he says: "We both kinda...you know, it was my freshman year, when we first started dating, I did."
So, here we have some news: Levi now admits that Bristol and Levi were unfaithful to each other. We certainly don't want to make any moral judgement calls here. What is interesting from our point of view is that this admission raises questions regarding the fact of who the father of Bristol's babies might be. Make no mistake: From all we know so far, including reliable inside information, Bristol is the mother of both babies. Levi's admission about the unfaithfulness also doesn't come as a surprise to us: From Bristol's Myspace-comments (the ones which were overlooked and not scrubbed), we know that Bristol was incredibly interested in Johnny C. in the first half of 2007 and openly exchanged romantic messages with him. She even told Johnny C. on May 14, 2007 that Sarah Palin overheard one of their conversations and that Sarah now thought that Bristol was pregnant.
But the conversation on "The Insider" is not finished at this point. After Levi has explained that he and Bristol were unfaithful to each other at times, the interviewer then asks "But once you had Tripp...", Levi responds "No, everything was cool".
Wait a minute! Tripp was born on December 27, 2008, wasn't he? Levi Johnston explains in Vanity Fair that he proposed to Bristol in July 2008. Surely things were already stable at that time, right? In Vanity Fair he also reveals that he broke up with Bristol in February 2009. So, without putting too much emphasis on one small part of the conversation, I would like to point out that this whole description of events basically doesn't make much sense, because a few weeks after Tripp was born, Levi and Bristol broke up. Like so much else in this whole Sarah-Bristol-Levi saga it barely fits together.
Meanwhile, Sarah is making potentially illegal robocalls to 300.000 ecstatic Virginians - as to why they are potentially illegal, I will get back to ya, you betcha!
