Jon Gosselin is taking Kate to court again! Jon reveals the bombshell news in an exclusive new interview with In Touch, explaining to the mag that he plans to sue for primary custody of 9-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah, and give them a chance at a normal childhood.

“They live in fear of Kate,” Jon says in the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now. “Every time I see them, they tell me they want to live with me.”

His twins' appearance on the Today show was the last straw, Jon tells In Touch. He claims Kate violated their custody agreement by not giving him the option of watching the younger six kids when she took Mady and Cara out of Pennsylvania.

“First, I’m going to file for an emergency petition for contempt ... The next step is to fight for custody,” says Jon, who adds that he will file as soon as he saves enough money for lawyers and paperwork fees. “It’s the only way I can protect the younger six.”

Jon can’t bear to see his children suffer anymore — and he believes that seeking custody is the only option he has left.

“Regardless of what the judge decides, I have to at least try,” says Jon. “I just wish Kate would wake up, realize how she’s behaving — and change her ways.”
