ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Levi Johnston says he would be willing to go to court for custody of his son with Bristol Palin, but he doesn't want it to come to that.

Johnston said on CNN's "Larry King Live" on Wednesday that he should have rights to his son Tripp. He also said he hasn't seen the baby in a couple of weeks.

Bristol Palin, the eldest daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, gave birth Dec. 27 and the teenage parents broke up soon after that. Johnston has claimed in several national TV interviews that Bristol has limited his access to the baby.

Johnston says if it continues, he may have to go to court to secure his legal rights with his son.

Sarah Palin announced her daughter's pregnancy days after being named John McCain's running mate.
