Jon and Kate Gosselin Divorce Papers Filed

by at . Comments

After affairs, scandals and months of speculation, the 10-year marraige of Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars Kate and Jon Gosselin appears to have come to an end.

Documents to initiate a legal separation of the Gosselins were filed at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, Penn., Monday afternoon, People reports.

Fans who have watched the couple's popular TLC show – or read the voluminous coverage of the Gosselins' marriage woes in the press – will not be surprised.

Reports that Jon Gosselin is a cheater first arose in February.

The father of eight was seen in the company of young women during a solo visit to see his mother, who was recuperating from surgery, in Huntingdon, Pa.

The couple attempted to quash the rumors, but in May, the scandal erupted when Deanna Hummel, 23, was spotted driving Jon's car home from a bar (above).

When the fifth season of the Gosselins' show premiered May 25, the couple admitted to having problems and not knowing where their relationship was headed.

"Parents of multiples have triple the divorce rate," an introspective Kate Gosselin lamented through tears and her reverse-mullet-dead-porcupine-weave hair.

"I thought we would beat that. I don't know if I can say that anymore."

TLC promotions of the hit series have been promising a major announcement about the family in this evening's "special" episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8.
