It was a profitable day in court for Bristol Palin, as an Alaskan judge ordered her ex Levi Johnston to pay $18,500 in back child support for their 13-month-old son, Tripp.
"Bristol is pleased with the court rulings today and looks forward to resolving the remaining issues with Levi," Palin's lawyer, Thomas Van Flein, told TMZ.
Palin, 19, was on hand for Thursday's ruling, but Johnston, who just recently stripped down for the pages of Playgirl, was not present.
According to court documents, Palin claimed Johnston earned $105,000 in 2009 -- but only paid her $4,400.
"I have received limited and sporadic financial assistance from Levi," she said in a sworn statement, while Johnston's manager argued that his client had paid more than $10,000.
