Poor Kate! Jon’s the lowest form of ex-husband!
Jon Gosselin has a new lawyer, former U.S. Attorney Anthony F. List, Sr., and he’s going back to court to ask for primary physical custody of the 8 little Gosselettes, according to a new report on TMZ. Jon apparently thinks Kate’s an “absentee mom” because she’s been travelling to LA once a week to perform in Dancing With The Stars and isn’t spending ” uality time with the kids.”
While he’s at it, Jon claims that his having to pay $20,000 a month in child support is “ridiculous”, according to List and that Jon may ask the judge to reverse the support and make KATE PAY JON instead!
Jon, this strikes us as the height of gall at HollywoodLife.com. We’ve kept close tabs on you and we know you weren’t seen with your children from Feb 28 2010 to March 28, 2010 — a full 28 days! The children were photographed almost every one of those days and they were either with Kate or a nanny. Talk about an absentee parent! Where were you?
You haven’t been working since you effectively forced the shutdown of your family’s successful TLC series, Jon & Kate Plus 8. Kate, on the other hand has made it clear that she has to work to support the family and is now starring on Dancing With The Stars … building a dance practice room in the basement of her Reading, Pa. home, so she and partner Tony Dovolani can practice at home, and cooking and freezing “Mommy’s meals,” so her kids can have home cooking while she’s away. Sources tell us that Kate often flies Sat. night to LA — the show tapes live on Monday and Tuesdays and Kate redeyes back to Pennsylvania so she’s back at home early Wed morning for her kids. No wonder her dancing has been a near disaster – she’s exhausted.
Kate’s lawyer, Mark Momijan, has called Jon’s claims “reckless and offensive”. A source close to Jon tells us that “Jon just wants to see his kids on a more regular basis … this attorney is putting out statements in hopes of getting Jon more custody.” He claims, “All this kind of nonsense goes into seeing the kids and even when Kate’s away, she may still tell Jon, ‘Hey, you need to be out of the house by Monday night’ even if she’s not back from LA. I think he’s just trying to say going forward ‘let me see the kids.’
Well Jon, if you want to see your kids more, you have a funny way of doing it, i.e. being a highly absentee parent yourself and then threatening your ex-wife with a renewed custody battle!
What are Jon’s chances of wrestling custody away from Kate? “Extremely remote!” according to prominent NY divorce attorney Raoul Felder, who has represented ex-NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, among others. “If I were his lawyer I’d advise him not to take this case any further,” he told HollywoodLife.com. “Jon Gosselin had no problem exposing his children’s every intimate detail on his TLC show and yet now he thinks that Kate’s being on Dancing With The Stars is somehow hurtful to them.”
We’re also wondering here if Jon is pulling this nonsense to embarrass Kate before the publication of her newest book, I Just Want You To Know: Letters To My kids on Love, Faith and Family, on April 13th.
Get a life Jon, or better yet — get a job!!
