The rumors were true! Levi Johnston’s 19-year-old sister, Mercede, is posing for Playboy. We wonder how Sarah Palin feels about THIS!

Bristol Palin‘s ex, Levi Johnston, and his family never fail to disappoint when it comes to being ridiculous, but this story takes the cake! E! Online’s Ted Casablanca confirms the rumors Levi’s 19-year-old sister, Mercede, is posing for Playboy and even explains the rationale behind her seemingly inappropriate decision.

Playboy approached her and she said yes,” an insider confirmed to E! about reports claiming Mercede lost 10-15 pounds in order to pose for the magazine in February.

The source added, “It’s easy money. She always wanted to be a model, but it can be tough to break into the industry. And she’s obviously choosing to go the easy route and take her clothes off.”

Apparently, Levi’s former almost mother-in-law, Sarah Palin, does not approve of Mercede’s impending strip down, but can you blame her?

“I think Bristol and the family feel the same way they did when Levi did Playgirl: a sense of deep disappointment,” the source said. “There are some things you shouldn’t do, even if you need money.”

Do YOU think Mercede is too young for Playboy? Does Sarah Palin have the right to disapprove? Sound off below!
