Jon Gosselin isn’t appearing on his ex-wife Kate’s upcoming TV special, Kate Plus 8, but he’s hoping to get a slice of her earnings, an insider reveals!
“Jon’s trying to get a percentage of Kate’s TLC salary for the new Kate Plus 8 specials,” the insider says.
“He has no stable job, no steady income, and now he’s trying to tell Kate that if she doesn’t give him a cut of the money, he will claim the kids hate filming and they are being forced to do it.”

In June, Kate went on the record and said the reason she’s still on TV is because she needs to make a living somehow.
“If there was another way to singly support eight children, you would not know this name and I would be on an island, and so would they,” she said at the time. “You would never hear from us again.”
At the time, we rolled our eyes at her excuse. But in retrospect… reality TV is a rational and totally respectable way to make a living compared to, well, extortion…
Unfortunately for Jon, the famous family’s matriarch isn’t buying into his plan—literally or figuratively!
“He’s all bark and no bite,” the source explains. “Kate has absolutely no intentions whatsoever of giving him any money. He doesn’t have any rights to it anyways.”
