Jon Gosselin Tries, Fails to Stop Kate Plus 8 Australian Adventure

by at . Comments

Jon Gosselin really doesn't want his kids on TV anymore.

Some have questioned his motives, but he seems intent on living a normal life these days and for his eight offspring to experience the same thing.

That said, he went to court to stop Kate Gosselin from dragging them to Australia, but was denied by a judge because the excursion is work related.

K to tha G

Once again, Jon and Kate don't see eye to eye.

The same judge allowed Kate Gosselin to film her spin-off reality TV show, Kate Plus 8, on TLC in the first place, despite vehement objections by Jon.

“This was yet another slap in the face for Jon because he did not want the kids to go to Australia," a source close to Jon Gosselin told Radar Online.

“But the judge ruled that because it was for work it was okay. Jon had plans with the kids. Now he won't see them until they return in mid-January."

"He was scheduled to have them this weekend, but there was nothing he could do as the decision was taken out of his hands by the judge."

“Kate told Jon about the trip, and when he did not agree it was decided that the judge should intervene and the ruling went in her favor."

“He is trying to put a brave face on and has explained the situation to his own family and friends, but this is a big disappointment for him."

“But if nothing else, they all respect him for trying to stand up to Kate and for fighting for what he thinks is right for his kids as well.”

Fresh off goin' camping with Sarah Palin in Alaska, Kate flew to Australia with her eight kids, plus body guard Steve Nield, on Tuesday.

The Gosselin crew will also visit New Zealand, and during the excursion they will shoot tons of footage for future episodes of Kate Plus 8.

As for Jon's plans tonight?

“It is most likely that he will be staying in Pennsylvania to be with his girlfriend Ellen Ross plus family and friends as they ring in 2011."

Sounds normal at least.


LMAO!!! All you people so in love with Kate... Her books are doing so well My daughter found them at DOLLAR TREE!!! No wonder she pimps her kids! Need that Money Honey


I'm with John here!!! These kids need to be given a chance at a normal life!! Kate is just a fame whore!!! Seriously she is ruining these kids lives. Give Jon full custody!


This is a free country. I think Kate is ridiculous but she has every right to make and spend as much money as she want. She has said time and time again that the Kids' money is secure....leave her alone to live the American Dream. They are her kids and they like the perks, too. Jon made his choice.


Also, if I were Jon, I would be outraged. He's their father and he has no control of their lives! TLC, Kate and the judge does and guess what, it's all about the money. This is happening all on camera and in the tabloids and nobody is doing anything about it. Jon, I support you 100 percent and just know that love conquers all. When your children grow up, they will remember who truly loved them the most and Kate will be left a lonely, bitter, old hag. Continue loving your children Jon and it will pay off.


Im no Kate fan. I feel very sorry for Jon. Yes he made mistakes at the beginning of their divorce, but he does not deserve to have his children paraded around on television like some circus show. I cannot believe that these children are working. We have a sick society that supports this kind of entertainment. The judge who keeps denying Jon his parental rights is an A**hole. Anyone who supports this sick mother is sick themselves. This woman is not even close to being the nurturing type of mother that some people believe. She is all about the money and it is very obvious. How many times have we seen this woman spend an obscene amount of money on herself. She would never have had her own show without her little money makers. This woman is a demon and she does not deserve to have those children. Some how she's gotten away with it which is very sad for the children. I am highly certain that those kids are not happy with their lives. Very, Very sad!


Anon - it is so obvious Anon is Jon Gosselin. His comments just oooze of anger, jealousy and putting 100% blame on Kate Gosselin for the misery he created for himself. Look Jon, unlike you, Kate got in shape, got herself together after the divorce, works long hard hours, while you put no effort into your life and that is why you have no money, no fame, and no career. I understand your confusion about the bodyguard, after all you don't understand the boundry between employer and employee because the nannies you "hired" came forward to make allegations about being intimately involved with you. Unlike you, Kate is a professional and protects her reputation, that's why she has a career and you have nothing but bimbos and whining. Tikyra Angelique


Is any of you fool enough to think Kate asked the children if they wanted to go to Aussie beforehand? Do you think she gave them a choice? To go or to stay with their dad or a babysitter? C'mon. They should at least be given a choice, and they are not being given one.


Katiemae - "Some seem to have forgotten the FACTS that Loser abandoned his kids to be a wannabe playboy and then stole money from his family, he is a court proven liar, cheater and thief. Jon then pimped out his kids to TLC to settle a lawsuit against him so he could collect a paycheck from TLC! Gosselin is a pathetic excuse for a father & only wants the kids when he can make money from them. Kate is a great mom & will always be there for her kids, unlike their LOSer of a dad!" Katiemae please. Jon's a sleeze, but Kate's no better. She forces her children to work so she can have expensive beauty treatments and buy expensive shoes. Kate is as bad in her own way as Jon is. Children need a childhood, not a job.


"TLC must be lining the judges pockets." That's what I've been thinking.


"...but was denied by a judge because the excursion is work related." The Commonwealth needs to take a good look at that judge. Since when should children be forced to work? And make no mistake, Kate forces them to work, so there's money for her $900 haircuts. Every cent of that money should be going into an account for those children, nothing for Jon, nothing for Kate. After all, what parent gets paid for taking care of their own children, unless they're on welfare. This has all become too absurd.
