We’ve learned under the arbitrator’s award, Jon must make huge child support payments — we’re told 5 figures a month. And here’s the problem. TLC has now shut down Jon’s ability to take outside jobs. The irony — he did himself in.
We’ve also learned Jon was charged every penny of the $235,000 that he withdrew from their joint account. That amount was deducted from his piece of the settlement.
As for Jon’s claim that Kate should be docked for money she withdrew … we’ve learned Jon struck out. The arbitrator determined every penny she withdrew was for the benefit of the kids.
Of course the child support issue will probably be resolved now that Jon has no choice but to either a.) drive off a cliff or b.) willingly allow Kate and TLC to film Kate Plus 8 which is really what this has always been about:
The safety and emotional well-being of the children. Keeping Kate Gosselin’s mug on TV so she can narrate shit in that monotone voice.
