Citing the Lifetime reality show "Life’s a Tripp," Bristol Palin’s former fiance, Levi Johnston, plans to seek full custody of their son, Tripp, claiming that the program shows the boy is receiving "no real parenting" and is on a "downward spiral," reports TMZ.com.

In one recent episode, Tripp called his aunt Willow the "f-word," the report notes. In the same episode, Bristol admits, "I’m doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp."

Johnston is alarmed by Tripp’s language and wild behavior, saying the boy "deserves a better family," the piece reports. He plans to file paperwork soon to seek full custody of the boy, according to the report. Bristol didn’t respond to calls seeking comment, the story adds.

Johnston added: "I love my son more than anything … and I will do whatever it takes to make sure he is raised the right way."

Here’s a clip of Tripp behaving badly in the show:

  1. Maybe this could be a “teachable” moment for the whole clan. “Bristol & Levi there is such a thing as birth control, it saves you from having children until you are mature enough to handle them. This way you don’t end up attempting to raise a child that is going to be as screwed up and ignorant as you. Now would one of you like to explain this concept to your mother?”
