I believe I read somewhere they make $75000 per episode.

He’s a douche. Excuse my language, but there’s no other word. I’ve watched the show since the babies were just a TLC 1 hour special. When they first announced their break-up I was on his side, but then he starts acting like a 20 year old w/ no responsibilities? Get a grip.

He’s trying to delay the divorce so he can get a piece of Kate’s earnings from “Kate+8”. He halted the show & took the money because he’s upset that he lost out on income & because he’s under contract so he can’t do his “Divorced Dad’s Club” tv show. Btw… Kevin Federline, Michael Lohan & Jon Gosselin? Hahahahahahaha really?

Jon needs to lose his slimey lawyer & surround himself with people who will be real with him and not blow smoke up his @$$. He really isn’t that special… he’s a sperm donor who got a lucky break.

Rant over.

I cannot stand Jon Gosselin. Just the piece of crap that he came to be after all of this. First, after he was kicked off all of a sudden he wanted to “reconcile with kate.” then he stopped filming claiming it was for the kids. then he withdraws all the money out of their account? Yeah, I think his actions will be easy to pin down in a custody battle, and he is the one that’s going to end up losing out on everything.

It’s a train wreck! 

I loved watching the babies back in the beginning, but having been through a divorce – it def brings out the worst in people and Jon is no exception.  I do find it irritatating that they are putting all of this info out there – I don’t know that I would tell the world he had drained the accounts, but that’s me.  Honestly, it’s sad to me.  What started out as a way to support a family of 8, turned into a horrible public display.  Those poor kids.

This is why I refuse to have 100% joint money. Don’t think it only happens to celebrities. I’ve personally known too many people who have had this happen to them when one wanted out (and sometimes their spouse had no idea, it was an affair, etc etc) and then somebody is left high and dry. I love and trust my husband, but I will NEVER allow him complete control over the finances nor make it so I don’t have my own stash that he can’t touch.

That being said, if you have a joint account, you have every right to do this and you can’t say you didn’t really see it coming. But, why is she airing their dirty laundry on tv? Cuz she’s mad? If so, she’s playing just as dirty. Essentially, he has every right to take the money legally, whether or not its moral. Maybe she shouldn’t have been so naive to begin with and protected herself and her children a little better since dad turned out not so well. Plus, she’s continuing the show, so she’s still making the money, right? And isn’t he not on that show? So she should be able to financially recover awfully quick, if she’s savvy and budgets safely. She’ll have to do that in order to prove to a judge she’s capable of custody for her 8 children by showing she can support them.

The whole thing makes me sad. Even more so b/c it’s on television. When will people learn that families on tv shows and couples and everyone usually end up for the worse?

I just heard that she’s been withdrawing money monthly into a private account anyway, so he didn’t leave her high and dry if that’s true.

They have a completel separate account for the kids expenses.  The account he cleaned out was only the joint liquid account for bills and joint expenses.  so it wasnt all their moeny (he did NOT touch the kids account) but I agree with recessionista bride.  Hes a DB.

I feel so sorry for Kate.  Granted, she’s no angel, but you can totally see why she acted the way she did – she was raising another child with him as her husband!

As for them only having $200k in their account – Jon went on record last week at Larry King, saying they make $22,500 per episode.. not nearly the 75k everyone thought it was… and after taxes, they made $500,000 last year. Between the house, bodyguards, etc, it makes sense that they wouldn’t have a whole lot left.

How this man could take that many from his kids though   – it beggars belief.  He is incorrigible.  And to spend thousands each month on trips to europe, his place in New York, etc… He has no shame.

Also, legally, he can’t take the money right now.  When people are going through a divorce, those accounts are supposed to be essentially frozen to all but the smallest withdrawals… (for bills, etc.)

I know that with my divorce ( and obviously, I didn’t have some high dollar atty) that there are temporary orders that keep either party from doing anything like this.  I would think there has to be something in place – especially if they have a custody agreement.  In the case of a joint account (I had one) we both were instructed to only use the funds for bills and “needs” which were listed – kids clothes, car payment, insurance, groceries, etc.  Any spending outside of that and we were liable to pay it back to the other party.

I think it’s publicity – I just can’t imagine the attys leaving their finances unprotected.

@moose – you were posting while I typed!  Great minds!

No not after filing for divorce. But, if someone withdraws the money in foresight (ie they know they will be leaving soon or something), you can definitely get away with taking your half.

I guess I’m alone on this but I’m on Jon’s side. The way she acts on the show makes ME anxious and squirmy… I hate how she would BARK orders at him. I think she’s trying to play the victim to the media- Jon is OBVIOUSLY in the wrong in many ways but I am sick of her being on a talk show a day complaining about how she is crying on the inside and smiling on the outside… go spend some time with your kids!!!!

(and on the same token, Jon needs to stop hanging out like a celebrity and SPEND TIME WITH HIS KIDS!)

Blah. He’s such a schmuck. These kids have grown up with cameras. Their camera men & crew are like family. The Gosselins are very isolated & don’t have a large circle of friends or immediate family….

These kids are already going through so many changes: their pets were given back to the breeder, their parents aren’t together anymore, the little kids started kindergarten… and now you’re going to take away filming & threaten the crew if they step foot on your property? It makes me ill to hear Jon say he’s doing this for his kids… he’s not. He’s not thinking about anyone but himself.
