Kate Gosselin files for child AND spousal support. Wait, what?

October 9th, 2009 // 47 Comments

Despite the fact she has a million dollar best-selling book and money squirreled away in 50 different accounts, Kate Gosselin is now suing Jon for child and spousal support based on the drop-in-the-bucket amount she apparently didn’t notice him take for two whole months from the joint account she diligently pays the family bills with. Yeah, that adds up. People reports:

“She needs relief in light of the draining of substantial marital assets in violation of the arbitrator’s decision that the money should be used only for specific purposes,” says Momjian, who adds that the economic issues between the Gosselins are being hammered out by a court-appointed arbitrator by agreement on both sides. An arbitrator’s conference is scheduled for Tuesday, he says.
Mark Heller, Jon’s divorce attorney, did not have an immediate comment on Kate’s request, but Thursday said he still hopes the two sides can work out the monetary issues without having to involve a judge any further.
“We are hoping in the next few days we can all do some bookkeeping,” he says. “I’m pretty sure this can come to a cordial resolution.”

What’s completely retarded about this whole situation is it’s a blatant attempt to strong arm Jon into letting her film Kate Plus 8 with the kids. Which will end with Kate paying him support out of whatever the hell TLC pays her. Of course, that’s hard to explain to a woman whose sole concern is splattering her mug all over television and looking like The Struggling Single Mom™ while an entire staff of nannies raises her children in a mansion. I mean, she’s just like all you other gals out there trying to make it in this world. In your mansions. Everyone has those, right?

    Unless she gave one of her kids an EXTREME makeover I’m pretty sure she just felt up err consoled a poor neighborhood child (see disturbed blond child in pic #2-3). OOOPS!

    Now, I’m not one to wish ill upon anybody. However, if these 10 jack offs (Yeah, fuck those 8 bastards to) were to die in a tragic ATV accident…..

    Also, the superficial writer unknowingly defended Jon. He probably meant to condemn them both to a fiery ATV related kerplosion. It’s cool ‘Fish, it’s cool.

  6. I really didn’t care for Kate, but Jon is a scumbag the likes of which we rarely see.

  7. hugh

    Why doesn’t this skank just get it over with and pose for Playboy? That’s got to be good for a couple million. That way Jon could buy a copy and see what he’s not getting anymore. Or, just tape a pic to whatever common street trash he’s banging at the moment. What the hell do these morons do for a living anyhow? I mean, besides exploiting their offspring for every penny they can?

  8. Sellout

    Anyone besides me feel like the Superficial writer sold out to the man…there are more ads and pop-ups on this site then ever. It is difficult to navigate with all this ad garbage.

    The LAST thing I wanna do is defend Kate and her evil uterus or her nasty little soon-to-be-ex, BUT… It’s standard operating procedure for all parties to ask for child and spousal support from the court in a divorce. If you don’t ask, the judge won’t rule on it. There’s nothing saying greedy bitch is gonna get one thin dime. But her lawyer had to ask for it first.

    If only the court could rule that the whole family must disappear off the planet, now THAT would be good precedent!

  10. Flora

    Soooo tired about hearing about these two. Must be a slow day.

  11. Sport

    what a phony.

  12. Danklin24

    Fuck, i love how stupid rich people are. Lets go to court and blow thousands of dollars to decide who gets more money. WTF? Be happy with what you’ve got assholes. No one needs $100,000,000 to survive.

  13. pasteve

    Pennsylvania divorce laws heavily favor women, especially mothers. Good luck Jon, you’ll be sucking dick for money to gas up that ATV

    i got something that would make the ultimate reality TV show, we’re talking ratings records that would never be sniffed again for the duration of humanity. we send John and Kate to the moon, which they land on. If they survive, they get like $500 mil apiece, but here’s the catch: we schedule it at the same time that NASA does more of their bomb tests on the VERY SAME MOON!

    it would be like Survivor times a thousand, with the added viewership John and Kate would command, PLUS the drama of potentially seeing a live “disaster”… ON THE MOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She can ask all she wants doesn’t mean she will get it since she will bring in more money than Jon. She will get Britney Speared. This bitch will deserve it.
    I can’t stand this lying ho.

  24. 666

    LMAO…… Epic fukin comment @12. @14 what an amazing creative idea, U make me happy to be a satanist;-)

  25. She’s such a joke. She makes millions, and she’s suing him for support, and the stupid press and public plays into her hands like puppets. Wake up stupid idiots. She’s exploiting the kids, he’s trying to move on, he’s got a right to date, and screw anybody he wants, he deserves some of his money for being on the show, and she’s a manipulative calculating mother putting her children last.

    I think Jon should put the support cheque in a ziplock full of poo. I think that would end the arguement PDQ.

    While I’m no fan of hers, she will be the custodial parent for EIGHT KIDS. Eight kids who probably want to go to college if they believe all the media about them and start to think they’re special. Pennsylania law does not require the non custodial parent to pay for college, or to pay for anything once the kids is 18 for that matter. So she’ll have to make use of what she gets from him in the meantime which is looking like a few hundred dollars and a Blockbuster card, does he even have a JOB? A million dollar book deal wont pay for four years of tuition for half of them, especially since she’ll burn through that by the time they are in high school. He is a scumbag and both of them should be locked in a dungeon somewhere so we never have to see them again but the fact remains he is the dad and should pay at least in part for their support. Being as they live in Pennsylvania, he will pay big time. Wonder how that will go over with that white trash freak slut he runs around with? Wonder if she’ll want to “get close to the kids” after he starts living in a box.

    To 29. Rain – October 10, 2009 5:08 PM :

    There COLLEGE fund was already promised to each and every kid when they were born.
    ALL 8 children WILL ALL GO TO COLLEGE FREE !!!
    Kate Gosselin stated that in the beginning episodes of the TLC show “Jon and Kate Plus 8.” She does not have to worry about supporting them because they are getting MILLIONS of dollars from appearances, book royalties and show royalties . She is a MILLIONARE and everyone here should stop feeling sorry for her. She has more than any of us will ever have.

  31. Sue

    Sorry…meant to write THEIR!! HA

  32. EricLR

    Guys, in all this “he said/she said” debate, I think we’re all forgetting what is most important here: Keeping the show on the air and making lots of money.

  33. abby

    Tip: Deduct you attorney fees and figure out if it is really worth it.

    He should pay for half of his 8 kids expenses. It is his duty as a father.

    Regardless of what she has coming in, he should be glad that one of them is employable. (Jon- get a job.)

    All that money he took out went to his lawyer. Such a shame, he should of donated it to sick children.

    Hang in there Kate!!!

  34. Enigma_2099

    Someone save those 8 innocent kids from these two idiots… PLEASE!!!

  35. Maren

    Not much nice about this woman, She was never nice to her husband, almost never warm to her children,shrewish and short-tempered, and totally, totally about herself. And not, as she states ad nauseum, “for the sake of the kids.” Jon is no genius for sure, and not very articulate so she somehow manages to always look and sound better than he. But whatever his failings, he’s the genuine article. He’s warm and caring, loves his children and they him, and I am confident he is the far better parent, if the show is any indicator. Too bad he is suh a naif. Think his attorney is the legal equivalent of Jon, and I suspect will not give him the best advice. I wish Jon all the best. I really do. I like him warts and all. Her? WHat a phony.

    keep up the good work. you are a great mom. my prayers are with you
