ANCHORAGE, ALASKA (AP) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s father is taking the 19-year-old father of her grandson to task for not helping to pay for the baby’s care.

In the issue of Us Weekly magazine to be released Friday, Chuck Heath says Levi Johnston is capitalizing on national interviews but not spending money on Tripp, the nearly 4-month-old son of Johnston and Bristol Palin, the governor’s 18-year-old daughter.

Heath says he wishes Johnston would “take some of this money he’s making and buy some diapers with it.”

The unemployed Johnston has said he wasn’t paid for appearances on national television last week, when he complained the Palin family was limiting his access to Tripp since the couple broke up. A message left at Johnston’s Wasilla home wasn’t immediately returned.
