Jon Gosselin does not hold back when it comes to Kate Gosselin, her lifestyle or her parenting. He's upping the ante now, though, from a legal standpoint.
His attorney, Mark Heller, is quoted as saying that a custody battle is looming between the two, and that the father of eight is looking to raise the stakes.
Heller says Jon will "most likely" be taking legal action against Kate over what he perceives to be a violation of a provision of their custody agreement.
This latest beef between the long-feuding parents stems from a beyond awkward Today appearance by Kate and their 13-year-old twins, Mady and Cara.
Jon's negative response and then the twins staying mum about their dad on The View culminated in his decision to take action, according to his lawyer.
Heller explained that their custody deal stipulates that if Kate leaves town or needs to leave the kids with a babysitter or nanny, Jon has first right of refusal.
In other words, he can opt to have the children stay with him instead if he chooses, yet Kate Gosselin has never given her ex that privilege, Heller says.
