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.


OMG, what the hell is wrong with this freakin' judge, he getting paid off by TLC. You allow angry and troubled kids to skip school so they can go work in a foreign country? Did he not even see how stupid and abusive Kate was to the kids when they went to Alaska, how will this trip be any better?? Oh forget that, Kate is never nice to her own kids unless the camera is on. To all those douchebags that work for TLC, that corrupt judge and Kate Gosselin, I hope Karma catches up with all of you for what you are doing to the Gosslin 8. You all deserve to burn in hell for taking away these kids' childhood.


The best we all can do is not Watch Kate plus 8


@suebonnet: Get your flippin facts straight. I think the bonnet on your head is too tight. Kate's exact words. "Jon wanted two kids. We couldn't afford the twins let alone eight kids." Go on the fan site and watch the video, you will hear Kate say it herself. So who is responsible??? Kate is responsible because the idiot should have taken birth control instead of fertility pills seeing they could'nt afford more kids!!!!She also said she knew there was a risk of multiples but was hoping for one more. HELLO?? This woman is clueless. And if anyone made a complete fool out of themselves it would be Queen Kate on Sarah Palins Alaska. Jon is the better parent by far and he deserves the kids. Wake up Suebonnet, the kids are paying the bills not Kate.


Say what you will but Jon put his family in this very position. If Jon would still be a part of the show and was recieving a check from TLC you wouldn't hear a sound.Jon FAILED his kids now he wants SYMPATHY. No sympathy hee for a man that made a totally FOOL of himself in front of the WORLD.


Kate is paying the bills LoLo?
I have news for you, the kids are paying the bills.
As for Jon cheating? I don't know any man who didn't say, they would have cheated a lot sooner with this dragon wife of his


Doesn't the judge "get it" that these kids are having their childhood stolen from them?? Isn't it enough 2 have been expelled from school without the rest of them losing so much time from their studies??!! This woman, who is using her kids to keep herself in the spotlight, sickens me more and more.


@Jamie and Lolo: Its sickening how the sheeple call everyone that doesn't worship Kate a hater but yet they hate Jon. WHAT HIPOCRITES! Why would you be happy the kids are away from their father whom they love. Instead they are with their slave driver mom who by the way is sleeping with Steve so Jon had every right to cheat seeing you have proof that he did. I say he cheated after they were seperated and all the power to him. I would have done the same after suffering emotional abuse. Lolo: Kate is not paying the bills , the kids are. I am still waiting for an intelligent answer to my question. What talent does Kate have other than tanning, manicures, and being photographed shopping????Please the haters are all dying to hear.


She is NOT paying the bills LoLo.. The KIDS are paying the bills.


If the shoe was on the other foot and Jon wanted to take the kids she would flip her wig.. She is the most narcissistic hog ever. So its OK to take the kids who have NOT BEEN EXPELLED out of school for weeks at a time so that they can WORK and make her fake azz money? She is the WORST mother ( or so called at least)
on the planet. Next thing you know she will be making them pay her mortgage, oh wait they already do that. Those kids are going to hate her if they already dont. Its clear they are on that path w/ 2 of the fighting so bad at school they have been EXPELLED. HORRIFYING.


I'll bet if he was invited, it would be ok for the kids to go. He's a small LOSER.
