When Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston broke off their second engagement this summer, some speculated that the split was caused by news that Johnston may have impregnated his ex-girlfriend.
Alaska’s former first daughter, though, had a different explanation: as she told People magazine, “The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family … He’s just obsessed with the limelight and I got played.”
Now the clip in question has been released onto the internets. The video, which is set to Brittani Senser‘s tuneless slow jam “After Love,” shows a pretty young couple (Senser and Johnston) being torn asunder by Senser’s stern mother, who repeatedly hits her daughter in the face to express her displeasure with Johnston. Before the music starts, she also voices her disaproval to Senser, saying, “You need to end it now. You understand me?” The statement is punctuated by a slap. At least the woman’s not also wearing glasses, a red power suit, and an updo.
For his part, Johnston spends much of the video sensually caressing Senser. (So much for “more involved” acting.) Near the end of the song, his character is pulled over by a police officer, apparently at the behest of Senser’s meddling mother.
