Kate Gosselin Defends Parenting; Sources Say Jon Gosselin Lawsuit is Money-Grubbing Ploy

by at . Comments

Yesterday, an attorney for Jon Gosselin announced that he would file a lawsuit seeking primary custody of his eight children, plus support from Kate Gosselin.

The latter isn’t taking news of this lightly.

In response to her idiot, jobless ex-husband's claim that Kate is an absentee mom, the grating banshee declined comment on custody issues, but did say this:

“I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom I will do everything necessary to provide for my children despite the opinions of others.”

Meanwhile, sources close to the couple say that the latest Jon Gosselin legal maneuver is just a ploy because he is going broke. Remind us to cry for the guy.

TLC's new show: Jon and Kate Plus Court D8.

He claims that Kate is an absentee mother and that Dancing With The Stars is ruining his kids' lives, "but the truth is Jon is going broke,” a close source reports.

“He hasn’t had a job since Jon & Kate Plus 8 went off the air.”

While Jon still has money left, his income prospects are bleak, what with TLC silencing his ass in court and whatnot. Meanwhile, his ex-wife is kinda raking it in.

Kate is making $200,000 for appearing on Dancing With the Stars and has a new reality show lined up with TLC, though the has not yet disclosed the concept.

“He came out a loser on the publicity and financial end of that divorce,” the source said, ironically, as it was he who first pulled the plug on his own meal ticket.

In any case, he senses an opportunity now to raise the stakes and possibly get out from the huge child support payments he's on the hook for. A source says:

“His cash is disappearing quickly. He doesn’t want to pay Kate any more. Now he’s going after her and it looks like things are going to get ugly.” Ding, ding!

Who should have custody of the Gosselin eight?

Good luck trying to take 8 kids away from a hard working mom when you have no home or job - and you have been a total absentee dad (jetsetting around with barely legal, short term girlfriends). Even when he was home he was sleeping with their babysitter. Ahahaha, what a LOSER!

The show "Issues" says that tonight "This Means War" between Kate and Jon. What happened to these two?? the Issues host Jane Velez-Mitchell has been covering this story and she is supposed to have new information on it tonight. Did they ever get counseling?

is there a reason either one of these two are condidered real parents? to me, they seem to be ALL about themselves and how much they can garner public acknowledgement and press. please let the children live with REAL parents.

I find it interesting when ppl say Kate is a horrible mother etc. She's the one who has been succesful (penning a few books) between the 2 of them. What has Jon done, he couldn't even hold a job that the state of PA GAVE him when the sextuplets were born? I also find it amazing that whenever a single mom is doing what she has to to support her family she is bashed. So what she gets tan, nails/hair done...um, so do I but I'm not bashed for it. I work hard to provide for my child....Jon is a dirt bag. I agree that monthly CS is a bit steep but he is looking for fame when he should be out looking for a J O B!

I think is strange that as soon as Kate starts to better herself in a positive way, Jon comes out of the woodwork to demand his 15 minutes of fame! What has he done since the divorce to secure employment for his children??? It would appear that he has only been able to secure girlfriends to satisfy his needs and wants! And Kate was the evil one?? I think not! Grow up Jon, and realize that you had a good thing and you blow it!! BIG TIME!! Now go an become a man and take care of your family! Oh and by the way if you wait a couple of years, Kara and Maddie will be in high school and you can start dating their friends, as long as you prefer young "ladies"!

Kate Needs to stop the nonsense....$21,000 a month???That's $2,625 a month per kid. WHAT ON EARTH DOES A 5 YEAR OLD DO WITH THAT MONEY. SHE IS A TERRIBLE MOTHER...BUT THAT MONEY GOES TO NANNIES, HAIR EXTENSIONS, FAKE NAILS, TANS...AND TRAVELING BACK AND FORTH TO LA...HOW SAD, JON HAS TO PAY FOR ALL THAT SO KATE THINKS SHE CAN LOOK LIKE A CELEBRITY!!!!! WAKE UP AMERICA, KATE IS A B-T-H AND HAS SUCKED IN AMERICA...CHRISTANITY IS LONG GONE FROM KATE, HOW SAD, SHE FORGOT THERE IS A HELL!!!!

Frenchy, the fact is that Jon is rarely at home with the kids...lol...and he doesn't have a job, he just doesn't want to make time in his playboy schedule for them. Kate is always doing things with and for the children, as well as daily care for them. She doens't parade them for the pap's like Jon does (which is done rarely, as he is never around & apparently done for face time)

Jon made mistakes in the past but he really cares about his kids...Even when Kate is at home, we don't really see her have quality time with them...Go for Jon all the way!

hmm....I bet Levi & Jon are best friends....they would kill it on the reality show front, lol. Throw in Michael Lohan and you got the worst father's in the world trio....
