Kate Gosselin Wants Alimony; Jon Calls Her a Thief

by at . Comments

Kate Gosselin has filed for alimony from estranged husband Jon.

The Insider, which first reported the news, says the petition was filed in court sometime last week, around the same time when Jon tried to halt production on their TLC show and pretended his concern for their kids was the reason.

Whether Jon actually owes alimony will have to be determined.

The two are not officially divorced, and he has alleged that she receives and controls the bulk of their income. On the flip side, he's accused of cleaning her out.

Kate claims that his withdrawals of over $200,000 from their joint bank account - leaving her with only a grand - was not only a d!ck move, but an illegal one.

Meanwhile, Jon has filed papers claiming she did the same.

Both Jon and Kate say the other is stealing and/or hoarding cash.

According to legal documents, Jon claims Kate withdrew over $60,000 from their joint account between July-September 2009. He took only $22,000, he says.

He also claims she took out over $1 million from February 2008-2009 and that plenty of her funds, including book royalties, have not been fully accounted for.

Sources close to Kate Gosselin say that her withdrawals were legal, whereas Jon withdrew up to $230,000 without permission required by their court arbitrator.

Both idiots are due back in court this Tuesday for the latest installment in their long-running soap opera. Hopefully there are some bulletproof vests involved.

Whose side are you on?
