It turns out Jon never thought Kate was an “absentee mom!” The exes are now patching things up and getting along — Jon even got himself a new bachelor pad near the kids!

Jon and Kate Gosselin, it’s so wonderful to see the two of you getting along for the sake of your eight little kiddies!

We’ve seen Jon around the house more, while Kate’s been out promoting her new projects — and it’s a sign that they are ready to bury the hatchet! After all of the hullabaloo caused by Jon’s recently-fired attorney Anthony List, it turns out Jon never wanted to file the custody suit against Kate — where he called her an absentee mom — in the first place! A source tells TMZ “Jon and Kate are trying to hash out a custody and child support agreement that is more up to date than the one that is currently in place.”

Jon purchased a new bachelor pad near the kids in Reading, PA, so he can be closer to his family … finally, he moved out of the trashed Upper $5,000 per month West Side of Manhattan apartment that he shared with ex-girlfriend, Hailey Glassman (who reportedly trashed the apartment).

He was spotted moving into his new home on Apr. 28.

Clearly in need of cash, Jon has put BMW up for sale so that he can afford to pay his $22,000 per month child support. And now that he has no other job, it looks like he has agreed to take on more babysitting duties while Kate starts filing her new show A Twist of Kate — there were photos of Kate starting to film yesterday, Apr. 28.
