Jon Gosselin: Broke!

by at . Comments

Once a successful reality TV star, Jon Gosselin's fame and fortune have gone the way of his marriage, leaving him unable to even pay the bills.

So says Jon himself, allegedly, to Star Magazine.

"I can't afford to pay rent and the domestic-relations staff say they will put me in jail unless I pay child support,” Jon, 35, is quoted as saying.

“I am a single father who’s trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do - pay child support or rent? Obviously I need to support my kids. I could lose my house, though, and need my home to continue to have custody."

"I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I'm could end up in jail because I can't afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money," the former star complained, laughably, as if TLC didn't fire him.

“I’m doing the best I can, but life is expensive with eight kids!"

Hey, the Octomom porn is putting food on her kids' table. Maybe Jon should grow a pair and show it in his own adult film? Okay, maybe not.

In any event, holding down a job and making ends meet has been a difficult task for Jon, even if he and Kate Gosselin are on better terms.

Speaking of which, Jon doesn't support her new career path.

"I think this is completely ridiculous! We have eight children and they need us, and she is putting reality TV and dating in front of the kids," he says.

Jon, who is now dating Liz Jannetta, adds that, "I know I have a lot to be thankful for, but Kate's need to be famous is not one of them."



I live on the UWS in NYC...Jon allegedly bought a condo/co-op on 72 on the NW corner in a luxury high-rise that is probably worth millions. Did he put 10% down and the bank owns 90%. How did he get such a loan. if he can afford this kind of luxury, pay for his kids. You pay common charges or maintenance, not rent, for a coop/condo.


He must of came up with some type of money because he was here in Wilmington,NC at Crazy Horse strip club making it rain on a stripper.


I don't like either one of them, but Jon put his other women before his family when he cheated. He says Kate puts dating before the kids? Maybe she does, but so does he. He's complaining about how much 8 kids cost, then complaining about how Kate makes money. You don't see reports about her not being able to support her children. I'm not saying Kate's a good parent. I frankly don't care much about either of them, but Jon ruined everything and is a terrible excuse for a father, so he should shut his trap and get a job.


Jon is a much better parent. Kate lies, exploits her children, took money from hard working church Christians in love offerings while she was exploiting the kids and making fistfuls of money, has squandered millions of dollars of the kids hard earned money, has kicked her own flesh and blood family to the curb, has repeatedly misrepresented facts to make others look bad and garner fake sympathy, had her own affairs, has zero talents, lied about cosmetic surgeries, lied about her children and their behavior problems, and on and on. GET THERAPY AND YOU YOU YOU TAKE CARE OF THE CHILDREN YOU HAD CREATED!


Ya know its his own dang fault. He was hell bent on pulling the cameras out of their life so now deal with it!!! He had a good thing with that tv show, and a good life, and he screwed it up! Serves him right!! I also think Kate needs a shrink too. I cant get over how mean and rotten she is. Its so funny how everyone on DWTS hated her. I had to giggle last time the Today show had her on she was almost begging for a tv job. Pathetic...both of them!!!!


I don't fault Kate in doing Realty TV to foster a paycheck. It is what she does after the show. It is not easy rearing eight children in a single household and earning a decent living to keep a home which I know is challeging. As for Jon he is a putz & should be ashamed of himself. Whining is his real name.


Hey Jon, I remember when you were putting dating before the kids and straightening out your marriage. You're just a big child. Get a better job, maybe two, and move back home with mommy and at the Y. Who cares? Stop whining and do the right thing and don't worry about what Kate's doing....grow a pair.


I cannot imagine the psychological harm that has been down to the eight innocent victims by both parents continuing to choose to be in the public "spotlight." Such an unnecessary tragedy. . .


LOL, maybe he should cut down on his food bill to save some money, he looks like he's gained 100 lbs since being on tv, definitely is eating well


I don't think they're trash... They are a couple who got caught up in a lifestyle that was temporary and it's unfortunate. For the sake of the kids, I hope they figure out their stuff soon and without cameras rolling
