Congrats, Kate and Jon Gosselin — you could be officially single by the end of the day today!
And it looks like you could be spending the holidays apart! A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Kate Gosselin will be taking the kids away “on a vacation” tonight, Dec. 17., for an unspecified length of time — and it could be a consequence of Jon shooting off a gun on their Wernersville, Pa., property.
Meanwhile, HollywoodLife.com has also learned that Jon Gosselin has kicked ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman to the curb, forcing her out of his $5,000-per-month apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Here’s what could happen in the divorce, according to Philadelphia attorney Jerold Berschler: The marital assets won’t necessarily be split down the middle, depending on age, health, educational background, length of marriage, and income of both parties. Worse for Jon, Kate may not be obligated to pay him a cent of alimony, even though she’s the breadwinner in the family.
In any case, it appears that the former reality couple won’t be wed for much longer — sources tell us the papers are in front of Judge Arthur Tilson now, and it could all be done in one quick swipe of His Honor’s pen. Kate’s attorney Mark Momjian says that the feuding couple’s divorce may be finalized by the end of the day today, Friday, Dec. 18. Even though Jon’s legal team told HollywoodLife.com that a Gosselin divorce wouldn’t occur until the New Year, Kate’s lawyer is telling a different story. “We’re expecting [the judge to sign off on their split] either today [Dec. 17] or tomorrow [Dec. 18],” Momjian told E! News yesterday.
A note to Jon: You may want to contact your own lawyer ASAP so you know what’s going on! Momjian says Jon showed up to a proceeding regarding the firing of the gun on the morning of Dec. 17 without attorney Mark Heller.
We’re sure the eight Gosselin kiddies will be getting gifts this holiday season, and they deserve all those presents for putting up with their parents’ bickering this long. Buck up, Jon and Kate, and start focusing on your family, not your feud.
