Kate Gosselin Is Suing Her Ex-Husband Jon For Child Support While She Lives A Lavish Life!

Sun, December 5, 2010 9:30am EDT by 46 Comments

Kate may make several million dollars a year, but that doesn’t stop her from suing her ex-husband for child support!

The formerly budget-conscious Kate Gosselin has decided to sue the father of her eight children for $125,000 in back child support, even though he is struggling to pay the bills! Is she losing her mind? Jon Gosselin has taken a 9-to-5 job at a tech company, while Kate lives the life of a star — getting her nails done, going tanning and taking five-star vacations. “She makes several million dollars a year and has free things thrown at her and the kids — if anything, she should be paying Jon child support!” an insider tells InTouch. HollyMoms, do you think Kate should be suing Jon? 

Kate denies that her children were expelled!

“It is a shock to everyone that she still insists Jon pay her money, when his focus needs to be on providing what he can for the kids during his custody,” the source says. “Her attempts to sue Jon are just ways she tries to control everything around her because she’s still angry about their failed marriage.”

And this money is not only going to her eight kids — 10-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 6-year-old sextuplets Joel, Collin, Aaden, Hannah, Leah, and Alexis –Kate uses the money to pamper herself and pay for her pricey beauty regimen. “Kate is so cheap, at least when it comes to the kids: She has TLC pay for their food, clothes and travel on days they film,” the insider says. “She’s frugal when it comes to the kids, but she has no qualms about spending money on herself.”

Kate’s kids are doing much better since they were expelled

Jon is trying to get his child support payment reduced since he is not making the same amount of money he used to. “He’s paid back $80,000 this year so far and the court ordered him to pay around $22,000 a month,” the insider reveals. “That amount was based on his potential earning, which has changed so much since TLC has limited the amount of media work he can do — and that’s how Jon was making his living. Before their series ended, they both were making hundreds of thousands of dollars on appearances and media deals. Between the two of them, they must have made millions. But they spent the money as fast as they earned it.”

Now Jon, who is nowhere near as famous or in-demand as his ex-wife, needs to find a way to pay thousands of dollars in child support to someone who has more money than he does!

Well he cant make those kind of payments on the job hes got now so she can go pound sand as they say.
i knew he was in trouble when he bought that new car. but hey an cool muscle car will ya 30k
im still driving my 10 year old camaro and will be till it falls apart
dumb jon if hed a just laid back some hed probably still have a good income. charlie sheen is/was paying 115k a month i read so hes due for a cut in child support.
really kate charging tlc for the food clothes etc on the days theyre shooting is probably pretty normal in there world
but she still has 8 kids to feed a babysiter to pay health insurance on her and the kids. the money that the kids make should be going into a trust or saving account for them so
shes supporting them on her salary for the most part
i dont blame jon for leaving if he felt kates belittling him was too much to put up with anymore. ive done the same myself. i couldnt go on that way and no one knows how it is tiil theyve experienced that constant non stop belittleing insulting etc day n and out for 5-6 years
it wears ya down. its ruined my life so i can totally relate to jon

This is ridiculous especially because she is using “his” children to make most of this money. That should be taken into account. In a very real sense he is supporting his children by being their father. Those kids are paying their own child support Kate. She is only doing this to make Jon look bad because he is looking like the better parent lately. It’s going to take more than this to make you look like a good parent Kate.

If you have a child, you must take care of the child. Doesn’t matter if one of the parents has millions and the other one doesnt. JON MUST TAKE CARE OF HIS CHILDREN. IT JUST IS NOT KATE! If this was middle class citizens, you would had not wrote this. This is horrible written and basically says it is ok to have children and never support them.

To be fair, each parent should pay half so if Jon pays $20,000 per month, K should pay $20,000 a month as well. Please tell me what the $40,000 is spent on?

if you ever saw the first shows when the show first started,jon always said he was happy with two kids,nomore but kate she did what she wanted,and she brags about it on one of their first shows.it is probabal she had these kids for her own monetary gain,she is the one who contacted the producers not jon.they said that too at the begining of the first show..they had just had a canaidian mutiples on thet a university followed for years,for reasearch,shortly after that here comes the rude blonde with multiples,who brow beats everyone and rants and can’t be quiet.we used to say he should just walk away from the psycho.one of her old scool mates said when she was in high school, she used people to climb the social ladder regardless of other people feelings,she used people,she would not have had kid unless she hadn’t gone had invetro,doctors need better ways of screening people who want multiple births,to see if it is for monetary gain or inflated ego.today multiples are not rare,they are just like plastic surgery ,anyone can have it, multiples ,they are not a fluke of nature anymore.we are sick of kate and the bratty eight,get a new show PLEASE>>

Two qualifying statements: I have a lot of personal experience with child support issues and I will base all of my comments on the fact that I live in Ohio.
Unless Jon & Kate’s divorce decree states otherwise, Child Support is collected through a state run Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA). So, Kate would not be suing Jon drectly. The CSEA would file a civil Contempt of Court case against Jon. CSEA can enforce many sanctions: loss of drivers license, loss of a professional license, and jail time. But, the jail time is progressive: 3 days, 10 days, 30 days, 60 days, etc. My son’s father owes over $40,000 -accrued over the course of six years- and he has only served 30 days.
Payment of child support has NOTHING to do with visitation rights. Jon can never pay another penny in child support, and Kate cannot deny Jon visitation. If she were to deny Jon visitation, she could be held in Contemt of Court, and subject to jail time, as well.
Does Kate deserve child support? NO…Kate doesn’t deserve anything!!! The KIDS deserve child support. Child support is meant to cover the child’s portion of the “household expenses.” It can be allocated however the residential parent so chooses. For example, if I use it to make a car payment, that is because I use the car to drive my child to doctors appointments, school, or sports. If I use it to pay a credit card bill, that is because I used that credit card to buy my child school clothes or school supplies.
I agree that Jon needs to petition to have his child support obligation adjusted. He does have a legitimate change in income. But, the story indicates that Jon is making an attempt to pay his child support. At least he is making an attempt to pay. In my case, my son’s father has refused to pay his child support. He has taken advantage of EVERY loophole available to him. I would be SOOO much more understanding if he said, “I’m having a hard time financially. I need to have my obligation adjusted. I will send X amount each month until this is resolved.” Instead, he just refuses to pay.
I don’t really feel bad for Kate. Ironically, I kind of feel for Jon. But, I really feel for those eight kids. They are the ones that are suffering!

I saw throw his ass in jail for non payment and contempt of court. Kate has let him off easy so far but yet he keeps pushing her buttons. Those are his children too and unless he want to give up all rights to them then he needs to pay.

Jon NEVER sees the kids. He MIGHT see see them 1 day a month.
Kate has been paying for JON’S dogs even!
Kate does NOT make millions of dollars a year.
Kate is not living lavishly LOLOLOLOL
If you think Dropping 20 bucks on yourself as a mom a month is extravagant.. here’s your cross.. go whine over there.

MAKE JON’S BUTT PAY CHILD SUPPORT. If Jon had money to buy Hailey Glassman 2 very expensive rings. Lease a car for her. Travel all over the world then he needs to pay for his kids. Jon doesn’t deserves NOTHING but to do what fathers do all over the world. He is still trying to steal money out of his kids mouth with all these tabloid stories that are mostly LIES. Why can’t he use the money from the stories he sells to do better with SUPPORT. KICK Jon’s BUTT THE SAME WAY HE HAS KICKED KATE and tried to stump her into the ground. If he doesn’t pay BACK SUPPORT then LOCK HIM UP the way they do all DEAD BEAT DADS!

HURRAH, Constance. You are absolutely RIGHT!

Any dimwit Sheeple with half a brain can do a little research and discover for themselves that what you say is the TRUTH.

Any gullible Sheeple can watch the old “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ TV shows and plainly see Kate is a raging, abusing, narcissistic shrew.

People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder cannot be cured. Psychological treatment does not improve their selfish manipulative behavior. Free and save the children — get them as far away from evil Kate as possible!

What does “competing with that” have anything to do with child support? What she makes has nothing to do with what he is expected to pay. She’s not asking for alimony, she’s just expecting him to pay the amount a Judge has ordered him to pay in child support. He has an order from the courts to pay child support, and it looks like he’s not complying. There’s no competing about anything, if he can’t manage the payments then he MUST go to court and ask to have the amount lowered. He can’t just expect to not pay and have Kate turn a blind eye to it and quietly accept it. If the court reduces the amount because he can’t pay what he’s been previously ordered to pay, then she should accept that.

OMHO She wants him to go away and never come back. She wants him out of her life and Steve’s life. And she wants him to have nothing to do with the children and holds them as ransom over his head. She wants to be free to do exactly as she pleases with out anyone getting in her way. All she wants from him is money, that she does not need right now. He needs it to keep the apt so he can see his children there. He has to be able to provide for them, and she knows he can’t if she sues him. Then when he can’t pay, she will lock him up and sell the story and revike custody rights. It’s coming. KG I am telling you from experience, you better stop and think about what you are doing. You don’t have to answer to any of us, or even to JG, but girl, you will be answering to those 8 kids some day. This is sick. yes he needs to pay, but she took all of his TLC money already. He can’t make it. There is no way he can.

Accept it if he goes to a Judge to have payments reduced, and the Judge grants his petition for a reduction in child support. He just can’t sit around and not pay, and expect Kate to go along with that. He’s doing his usual, which is nothing, and just hoping that it will all work out for him. He has to try and save himself, not just ignore his obligations (court ordered obligations) and hope that they go away.

The judge will have no choice but to adjust the amount, since the 20K was based on what he made last year. He isn’t and can’t, thanks to TLC, make that kind of money. The amount will be figured from his income now with his job in IT. No choice, Kate, who made 3 million so far this year. You greedy witch. And no, I do not think she should pay him, since the witch does have primary custody. It is clear that Kate is going to make Jon’s life miserable. And try to stop him from having a life with someone else.

Wow, is this really a POLL? If Jon OWES child support it’s because a JUDGE has decided that he should PAY child support, and he’s not. Does anyone think that a mother should just let it go if their ex-spouse has been ordered to help support his children financially, and he doesn’t do it? Jon should go to court and get the amount reduced, (or even petition the courts to allow him not to pay because he doesn’t have the finances right now) but until he does that, Kate has every right to expect him to pay what the Judge has ordered that he pay to help care for his kids, monthly. I would say that no matter what. I would say it if roles were reversed and it was Kate who owed, I would say that no matter WHO this story was about.

Jon should pay support. He blew through thousands over the last 2 years on a wild party train. It’s the law, Kate has custody. If roles were reversed, Jon would drink and smoke away money with Ellen hanging in bars. Get a grip people, Jon could have had a job along time ago but chose to sit on his behind. Go Kate and the kids, let your Dad sell you out for a few bucks and get the money. He is a shameful Father with no morals. If he doesn’t pay, most states put them in jail now!! I wonder how twitter IT works from there.

We can speculate all we want, but we have absolutely no idea what Jon would do if the situation were reversed. Yes, we can look back on last year and say he’d do the same, but I can tell you that in my life there are lots of things I wouldn’t do over and he could feel the same way. Good lord, if it was me looking back at some of that stuff, I’d be cringing all the way home.

I have no more respect for Meredith Viera because any journalist worth their weight in gold would of asked some hard questions that we want the answers too, but meredith and kate played a big game of softball. what is it going to take for meredith to finally say, boy, was i wrong!

Maybe if he’d gotten off his butt months ago and earned even minimum wage she wouldn’t be asking him for money. Why should she support him – an able bodied adult man – while he plays on the computer and eats tacos all day, and then watches tacky tv shows with his girlfriend all evening? Jon needs to step up, be a man, and show his kids that he has an ounce of a work ethic.

And you know this about Jon watching tacky t.v. because? Of course you don’t. How can you expect the man to pay all that money to Kate. He has a stop order on him to pursue anything in media whilst Kate can go on shows, bash him on live t.v. Nice work for Kate to run down the children’s father every chance she gets.
Now she’s suing him for money owed? I think she owes him and a great deal. If she cut down on her tanning, pedis and all the clothes and shoes she buys, she could easily do without taking so much money from Jon.
What a witch…and she thinks the public will love any more for this? She is on her way down and eventually have to pay for exploiting instead of protecting those children.
There is one judge you will not influence Kate and he is waiting for you at the final judgement. Since you like tanning, you know where you will be going.

Lauren …..

Do you have any idea about what you’re alleging – what you’re talking about?

Since when has Kate been supporting Jon? Did you notice the article stated that Jon paid Kate $80,000 in child support this last year. That’s almost $7,000 per month that JON PAID TO KATE!

Do you suppose Jon makes even close to $7,000 per month TOTAL? Since when is a father ordered to pay MORE child support than his total salary? Is that fair … or even possible?

Last year Jon was paying Kate over $21,000 per month in child support. Please explain to me when Kate has been supporting Jon, as you complain?

While TLC has forbidden Jon from working in the entertainment media, or even from filming commercials, Kate can earn any amount of money any way she wants. Is that fair?

Every episode of “Kate Plus 8″ earns $250,000 + freebees from TLC. Kate personally receives 85% or $212,500 per episode.

Starting only in April, 2010, the true starring workers, the eight children, SHARE 15% or $37,500 … less than 2% each, or $4,688. Is that fair?

Furthermore, Kate is allowed to take any of the children’s Trust Earnings for their educational, medical or other expenses which SHE deems necessary. Is that fair … especially since the children received ZERO – NADA – NOTHING for all the years of filming “Jon & Kate Plus 8?”

The 6 and 10 year olds’ measly 1.88% Trust Fund is probably paying the dentist’s fee to fill their own cavities … and of course their mother’s too. Fair?

And where again is Kate supporting/paying Jon?

You are wrong. 15% of the gross profits of the show go in a trust for the children.
Kate does not earn 85% of the gross profits from the show. Her paycheck has nothing to do with what the children earn.

Tina states ….

———————————————————–
Yeah, and greedy, grifting Kate can pilfer those trust funds whenever she feels like it.

The children’s money remains in the trust fund “… until the minors reach at least 18 years of age
U N L E S S the funds are distributed for the safety, welfare, education or health of the minor children
according to the terms of the trusts and applicable state law.”

“Safety, welfare, education or health” — pretty much covers any reason to REMOVE the children’s money from their personal trust funds. If Kate wants a new expensive car she could take the children’s money for “safety reasons” if the children plan to ride in the car ever.

If you think the kids are not paying for their own prestigious private school and after-expulsion-tutors you’re pie-in-the-sky optimistic. Learn how narcissists operate.
