The promo for Monday night's special episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 promises that the embattled Jon and Kate Gosselin will make a major announcement.
A source close to the situation tells Radar Online that the Jon and Kate announcement is what we all assumed it to be: They are getting a divorce.
The source says that Kate Gosselin recently met with a divorce lawyer. Another source says that the couple had previously agreed to separate by July 15.
That timetable has now been pushed forward.
Radar also claims exclusive knowledge that for all intents and purposes, the marriage is already over and Jon Gosselin will file divorce papers next week.
Meanwhile, People reports that Jon was apartment hunting in New York City this morning, further fueling rumors that a Gosselin split is imminent.
The stars of Jon & Kate Plus 8 have unwittingly used reality TV to broadcast the reality of an unraveling, terrible marriage. And they’ve done it to record ratings this season as media frenzy around the battling couple grew with each new development:
- Jon was accused of having an affair with Deanna Hummel.
- Kate was accused of having an affair with Steve Neild.
- Kate's porcupine / reverse mullet weave has been scrutinized.
- Her brother discussed the relationship publicly in a tell-all with Us Weekly, which featured the Gosselins on a staggering seven straight covers.
- Kate previously took the sextuplets on vacation to North Carolina without Jon. He was spotted hanging out with Deanna Hummel in Utah.
- Some dude apparently pummeled Deanna Hummel on a sex tape that appeared online. While unrelated to the Gosselins, this was amusing.
- Jon has also been spotted with Hailey Glassman, the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon, and reports say this relationship may be still on.
- Jon and Kate spent their 10th wedding anniversary apart.
How will the once-beloved couple handle their impending split? Will the show go on? Should they try to work it out for the sake of the adorable kids?
