Levi Johnston wasn't pining away for his erstwhile Alaskan lass Bristol Palin at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday.

The 20-year-old hockey hunk, who was a baby and two def8unct engagements with Sarah Palin's oldest daughter, shrugged off their latest breakup.

"Oh, we're friends. The ring's off, but we're friends, so everything's good," Johnston told People magazine

Everything was not good with self-professed Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin when the couple announced via Us Weekly last month that they were back together. After all, Johnston had sharply criticized the Palins in a series of interviews. But although the former Yukon state governor wasn't ready to bury the hatchet, Bristol was. Then she told People she'd been tricked.

"He told me [his trip to L.A.] was to see some hunting show, but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family," Bristol Palin, 19, tearfully said.

On Sunday, Johnston was with the singer of that video, Brittani Senser, who he described as "just a friend. She's a singer."

As for breaking up with the mother of his 19-month-old son, Tripp, Johnston sounded like he was managing and said he and Bristol are still "co-parenting."

"You know, it's tough," he told the magazine. "It's not something that I wanted, but life goes on, and I'll just take it one step at a time."

"Oh yeah, yeah. We're still co-parenting," he says.

Bristol Palin said she's moved on and hopes to one day find someone "who's going to be completely honest with me and someone who loves me and Tripp and wants to be with him all the time."
