Levi Johnston tells Vanity Fair that Sarah Palin wanted to adopt her daughter's baby.

Levi Johnston is burning the last of his bridges with the Palin camp.

In an interview with Vanity Fair (on stands September 8), Johnston spills the beans on Sarah Palin's worry that her teenage daughter Bristol's pregnancy would hurt her campaign for Vice President. Huffington Post via Vanity Fair quotes Johnston with the following:

Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret—nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him. That way, she said, Bristol and I didn't have to worry about anything. Sarah kept mentioning this plan. She was nagging—she wouldn't give up. She would say, "So, are you gonna let me adopt him?" We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn't want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid.

Of course Bristol went on to mother the baby, and Levi is said to be in his life even though he and Bristol have parted ways (in a very nasty breakup that's made Levi the media tattle-tale on the Palins).

But another controversial family topic among the Palins is Sarah and Todd divorce talk—in Vanity Fair, Levi confirms it, saying Sarah and Todd slept separately. In a quote he says, "there was a lot of talk of divorce in that house...times when Sarah and Todd would mention it and sound pretty serious." Celebrity Love: Sarah Palin Fired Up Over Divorce Talk
