Jon Gosselin has been thinking of fighting Kate Gosselin for custody of their kids, and not simply because he's livid about the return of Kate Plus 8 to TLC.
The real reason, insiders say, is that more and more often, he hasn't been allowed to see his kids under the tyrannical rule of his former wife, Kate Gosselin.
There are ugly splits, among celebrities and regular folks alike, but to say there's no love lost between Jon and Kate is the understatement of all time.
Ever since Jon and Kate Gosselin divorced, fans have been hoping these two would at least try to get along, or agree to coexist for the kids' sake.
Not happening. Just when you think you've heard everything, another war of words, tabloid bombshell and/or lawsuit over a tell-all book pops up.
Kate even went so far as to sue Jon over his alleged involvement in Robert Hoffman's expose, which paints her as a greedy, fame whore child abuser.
Whether he was involved or not, these insufferable people are clearly out to ruin each other, and right now, she controls the cards - eight of them anyway.
While they should be putting their differences aside to mutually enjoy such rites of passage as the Gosselin kids' first day of school pic, they just can't.
Despite signing away his legal power regarding the kids' TV future, supposedly, in exchange for lower child support payments, Jon is exploring his options.
If she really has been keeping the children from Jon, that would violate their custody agreement, and he's not happy about it. For him or for the kids.
“Jon feels bad for them. It’s not a normal childhood. They love spending time with Jon and wish they could see him more,” one source said of the situation.
