Levi Johnston’s ex Lanesia Garcia says he’s not her baby-daddy


And now I have Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” stuck in my head. Ugh. So last week, the National Enquirer and Radar ran a series of stories about Levi Johnston maybe being one of three potential baby-daddies for the unborn child of one Lanesia Garcia. Lanesia is Levi’s ex, and she’s nine months pregnant, and the Enquirer got the ball rolling by reporting that she and Levi had a rebound fling last year, before he got back with Bristol Palin. However, Lanesia gave an interview to Us Weekly where she claims that Levi is not the baby-daddy, and that she has “no idea” how those rumors started:

The National Enquirer is reporting that Levi Johnston got his ex, Lanesia Garcia, pregnant and that his fiancee Bristol Palin (with whom he has a 18-month-old son, Tripp) may call of their engagement.

But, in an interview with UsMagazine.com, Garcia, 20, says: “Point blank, it’s not true at all. We haven’t hung out at all since 8th or 9th grade when we broke up. I don’t know where people are getting this. It’s not true at all. Levi is not the father of my baby.”

Garcia tells Us Johnston, now 20, was her first boyfriend. “I dated him for 2 1/2 years,” she says. She’s baffled how the story spread that he got her pregnant.

“I mean, it’s stupid,” she tells Us. “I’m nine months pregnant. If I wanted people to think that, I would have said something like that when I first found out. I would not say something like that now that I’m getting ready to have my baby. That doesn’t make sense.”

She tells Us she knows the baby’s father, and he’s “really mad” about the tabloid report.

“He’s upset that this whole thing is going on,” says Garcia. “It’s just dumb. We’re supposed to be getting ready and be excited, there’s no reason for this. Levi and I haven’t talked or hung out in years.”

Earlier this month, Johnston and Palin, 18, exclusively revealed to Us Weekly that they are engaged.

“I wanted to talk to her, but I know she won’t talk to me,” Garcia says of Palin. “I wanted to tell her straight-up that it’s not true. If I could say anything to her, I would love to tell Bristol, that it’s not true and that I’m sorry she has had to even deal with all these lies.”

So can we call off the Code Red on Baby-Daddy Drama 2010? Maybe. I still think this story is fishy as hell, and it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Levi and Lanesia were boning last year, and that she’s lying about just when they last had contact. But I will buy that Lanesia knows who the baby-daddy is NOT, you know? Maybe there’s still drama, since she doesn’t mention the name of the father, although maybe she didn’t mention it because it’s none of our business. Whatever. I guess Levi and Bristol’s engagement is back ON.

    This will sound old-fashioned of me, but for the sake of the baby, I hope that Levi can keep his Johnston in his pants and make it work with the mother of his child. I think that with therapy and family support, they can make it work. If there is still any passion between two people, commitment and family go a long way.

    I sound so warm and squishy. That said, it will never work. Levi is only doing this to keep his name in the tabloids. He’s a fame whore who got a taste of the fame-crack and he is addicted. He could be the son-in-law of the first lady president (may it not be so…) and he isn’t going to pass that up! No sir!

  2. Dhavy says:

    I can’t help but to laugh at all this. Palin went on a rampage criticizing Obama for being on the View but her daughter’s life is playing out like an episode of Jerry Springer.

    These two won’t last and I’m sure they’ll be other “Levi is my baby’s daddy” claims in the future.

  3. lola says:

    she said she knows, she just didn’t give his name, nor should she have to it seems.

    I feel sorry for her – and for Levi, actually. B/c it sounds as if for once they have a clear cut case of lying out the ass going on here.

    That or the even more rare occaision of a pregnant mom who knew a celeb not being coy for a buck. Good for you ex-girlfriend. good for you.

  4. Liana says:

    Kaiser, she said she knows who the baby’s father is: “She tells Us she knows the baby’s father, and he’s “really mad” about the tabloid report.”

  5. Kaiser says:

    Sorry, I clarified that – I meant she didn’t give the guy’s name, not that she didn’t know.

  6. Missfit says:

    Wow, more drama that literally happens in real life…but some “famous” people might think it won’t ever happen to them. She’s such a cute, pretty girl, she doesn’t need that, but she’s just as naive and blind as many other girls/women in that situation.

  7. Bopa says:

    No pic of the other lady?

  8. Feebee says:

    It sounds like a genuinely pissed off mother-to-be who’s trying to get ready for the arrival of her baby and some gutter tabloid trying to make a buck drags her into the mess that is Levi Johnston. Never mind the collateral damage it would have on the relationship she has with the father. NE sucks.

  10. lucy2 says:

    If this other girl does any media beyond the denial, I’m going to be suspicious – pretty easy to float a rumor out there, and then get to comment in US Weekly (just like a movie star!).
    Whatever’s going on, I have a feeling this isn’t the end of the drama.

  11. LolaBella says:

    ‘The lady doth protest too much, methinks.’

    Conspiracy Theory:

    Perhaps Lanesia was monetarily persuaded to offer a denial to quash this rumor? A rumor which could negatively impact and tarnish a certain potential presidential hopeful’s image?

  12. oduroyal says:

    Hell no I don’t believe Lanesia…she hasn’t sued the National Enquirer for defamation so it’s probably true :(

  13. Mairead says:

    Giving the girl the benefit of the doubt here, I feel sorry now. Somebody sold her out to the press and she’s left picking up the pieces.

    Not sorry about or for him though – he’s an attention-whoring disaster waiting to happen. I have no respect for anyone trying to coast into fame/fortune on the back of someone else’s graft.

  14. happymom says:

    What a contrast between the Clintons and the Palins!

  15. Cheyenne says:

    Um, no. Huffpo reports that the engagement is back off. Bristol Palin is in a snit because of yet another ex. Read all about it:


    Anyway, can we please have a rest from this tundra trash? Enough is enough.

    get a vasectomy.

    If this dude doesn’t get out and do some surfing soon he’ll be looking like he’s pregant AND purple is so way majorly NOT his shade.

  19. dread pirate cuervo says:

    oduroyal, I agree. If I was Lanesia, I would be engaging the Enquirer with the Great American Pastime: a big fat lawsuit.

  33. shopkids says:

    Thanks for your posting on this web site. From my very own experience, often times softening upwards a photograph could provide the professional photographer with a chunk of an creative flare. Oftentimes however, that soft blur isnt what exactly you had as the primary goal and can frequently spoil a normally good snapshot, especially if you consider enlarging the item.

  34. a4036689 says:

    I’ve said that least 4036689 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

  35. An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I believe that it is best to write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  36. Thank you for good article information I think great blog and good content I will follow this site you everyday.
