Kate Gosselin Is Allegedly Keeping Kids From Jon

Jon and Kate Gosselin seemed like a happy couple when their reality show Jon And Kate Plus 8 aired on TLC. After a few episodes, it was obvious that Kate and Jon had very different parenting styles and plans for their children.

Jon and Kate eventually divorced, and for a while things were pretty nasty between the two of them. Things finally calmed down and Kate was given custody of all of the children, while Jon was ordered to pay child support. Jon was also removed from the television show and it was renamed Kate Plus 8.

Eventually, Kate Plus 8 was also dropped, but Kate wasn’t about to let that stop her from staying on television.

She and her children continue to appear on daytime television shows and specials and things between Jon and Kate are once again getting ugly.

Jon has tried to move on with his life and is allegedly working minimum wage jobs to make ends meet and pay his hefty child support payments.

Kate has reportedly stopped letting Jon see his children, even though he has court-ordered visitation rights. In the past, Kate has been accused of making visitation almost impossible for Jon and according to past nannies and other sources, has a ridiculous amount of rules for Jon to follow when he picks up, drops off or spends time with the children.

A source claims that Jon has been looking for a way to get custody of the children, stop them from filming television shows, and allow them to live a normal life. With Kate violating the divorce and custody arrangements, Jon could take her back to court.

Unfortunately, according to the same source, Jon doesn’t have the money to take Kate to court, which is why she gets away with treating him so badly.

The source told Life & Style, “[Jon] would love to take her to court and get total custody of his kids. He doesn’t want them on TV and doesn’t want Kate’s influence on them. He’ll do whatever it takes.”

“Jon feels bad for them. It’s not a normal childhood,” the source explained, adding that, “They love spending time with Jon and wish they could see him more.”

“Kate knows Jon doesn’t have the finances to fight it, so she just does whatever she wants,” the source added.

Hopefully Jon and Kate can work things out and get along for the sake of their children.

    I hope Kate has good mental health insurance cause these kids are sure going to need counseling in the future and even when they are adults. What these two parents have done, and are doing to these children to benefit themselves, is awful. They will feel that sometime in the near future, you cannot control your children forever. These kids are going to turn on both of them. It’s not going to be pretty.

    I hope someone with deep pockets will come forward and help Jon with legal assistance to at least get his court-ordered visitation upheld and possibly help him get the children away from Kate. He can bring the children up with their trust fund money just as Kate does.

  • Christine Priefer

    From what I had seen from the TV sh
    ows and specials, the kids are definitely going to need counseling. What they have done to the children Kate was definitely using them to benefit herself. Getting their clothing for free and then throwing them out instead of taking them to a Goodwill store. Jon and Kate need to grow up, quit having strict rules, and let the kids be kids not adults like her.

    • LaurelLady

      Call it like it is. She pimps the kids out to fund her life of travel, clothes, Botox and maintenance on her godawful hair. (She currently looks like an aging Barbie doll.) I wonder how much extra she got for the dog to smile in the photo. Jon needs to find a lawyer that will work pro bono or for a greatly reduced fee to take his spoiled, greedy conniving wife on. If she is denying him visitation, he should have an excellent case for increased access to his kids and more of a say in their lives. The unfit little mommy got all of the money, the house and access to the kid’s trusft fund. Does not bode well for their future.

    Kate and Jon are wrong on so many levels I do not know where to begin. Parents who try to control the lives of children will pay a hefty price when they get older. I have seen this happen with my own boys.

    I hope the kids get their own reality show…Eight That Hate That Kate. Or perhaps Our Mommy The Monster. Imagine getting 8 mothers day cards that say die you b*tch die

    • Willie Montgomery

      Or the kids when grown will do interviews with Dr Phil or Oprah and really let their mother have it.Especially the twins whose TV appearance raises big questions that should kids do reality TV shows.I wouldn’t be surprised the kids when grown are going to find a nice mental health facility to lock their mother up for life.She was offered her nursing job at the hospital back but refused.I know why.She wants to keep her kids on TV for a long time and pad her bank account.Plus some of her kids have been in fights at their school.And it has to do with them being on reality TV.

    Why is Jon working at minimum wage jobs? He used to work as a well paid IT professional when they had the television show.

    • dessertgirl

      Because when he got a good job, Kate and TLC worked to see that he lost that job and made trouble at work for him. No one wants the notorieity and paps of celebrity workers.

  • sympathetic mom

    Kate is so controlling and just downright mean! I’d hate to have her as a mom. You could see how everything revolved around Kate, Kate, Kate. I believe that’s called narcisstic. Go Jon!

  • careerguerrilla@yahoo.com

    Kate’s not perfect, and she should allow visitations…. but chosing that womanizing dirt bag going from one blond bimbo to the next will never get custody until he cleans up his act.

    • dessertgirl

      The problem is that there are only 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The kids are of an age that they are more or less required to be in school and the only time to film will be weekends and holidays which is when they normally see their father.

  • Likely

    Jon is a deadbeat dad…….Kate is controlling…no secret, but not damaging. The kids appear happy and about as normal as can be expected in such a large family. Jon can’t/won’t pay his share of their care…..She needs to do whatever it takes to keep a roof over their heads and food in their tummies. I think she’s doing a good job…not perfect but she’s, at least, trying.

    • fran attaway

      can anyone imagine taking care of 8 kids all alone?? not me. you know if these kids didn’t have kate; they would be up s—creek without a paddle. jon is worthless.

      • dessertgirl

        No and I hope that she snaps and completely breaks. Even having Steve “service her” won’t help her.

    • wendy

      I am glad someone is on kates side. I am so sick of the haters. I can not imagine taking care of 8 kids, let alone support them. Kate did say at one time that jon isn’t paying child support. No one is perfect and the kids do not seem to be suffering at all. Last time they were on tv they said that they wanted to do another show.

  • Debbie Torre

    you dont withhold children from their father weather he is behind on child support or not. In the end you will be sorry. Besides give yourself a break from the kids he is not going to hurt them

  • Guest

    His children have probably seen & heard the rotten things he said about them and don’t want to see him.

    • dessertgirl

      What about the letter that Kate wrote to PA to ask for free nurses for another year or more where she called the kids DISABLED?

  • kay jayne

    most every one has kids. quit trying to make a buck from then and get a real job.

  • Tana Heath


  • Rubydo

    She a witch.

  • Write-in-Front

    she has finally admitted she IS pimping those kids for money. There are plenty of ways to support your family if you are willing to WORK, I cant understand how anyone (ie TLC and fans) support what she’s doing to those kids. Dont Watch It!

  • motherof4

    As a mother of teenagers and younger children there is no way she is forcing her kids to perform on TV. They love it. They want to be on TV and they are benefitting from the income. They are a lot better off than a lot of kids in the world.

    • dessertgirl

      Is that WHY Cara and Mady REFUSED TO SPEAK when Kate put them on the Today show?

  • sunnydaysahead

    Another good reason to signify that Kate is ALL about Kate and no one else. Her children will be in therapy for a LONG time if they stay with her. She wants the limelight and silver screen only. I am not saying that I agree with Jon either. He needs to step up to the plate. Hope he is not working a minimum wage job just to keep the child support payments down.

  • Jenny

    As long as Kate can make money off those children, she will fight for them. If they were with John and away from cameras, the children would be so much happier. They need to be happy and healthy

  • boggle

    this is all very sad. they need to work togther for thier kids sake not be fighting all the time. why does kate not go get a real job. how does she support herself
