More than 14 years after Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin welcomed their sextuplets into the world and became a household name, they are still making headlines. However, now it’s because Kate filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband in March and demanded that he pay her more than $132,000. Naturally, he’s reportedly furious.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Jon says the mother-of-eight’s request is “an inappropriate amount” of money. Previously, a source told the publication that “he’s contesting it. They’re fighting it out in court.”
Jon was reportedly served papers on April 5, 2018 and responded with a petition to go against the documents. “It’s a lot of money,” the source said. “Both parties are contesting it. It’s not over yet.”
While it’s unclear why Kate asked for the lump sum of money, the duo have been in a constant custody battle over their sextuplets and 17-year-old twins since their divorce in 2009, which could have something to do with it. She called Jon out in the past for not paying her any child support, and took a major jab at his ego when she revealed that he couldn’t afford it.
However, Kate might not actually be the award-winning mother she claims to be, either. Jon accused Kate of keeping him in the dark while she made the decision to send their son Collin away to a home for children with special needs. Their ongoing battle has been incredibly nasty, and it doesn’t seem like it’s ending any time soon.
One thing is for sure, though: Jon is back in his daughter Hannah’s life. While he unfortunately has had an estranged relationship with most of his children, Hannah and Jon have been spending lots of time together and are sharing the moments on social media. They spent Hannah’s birthday together, grabbed Mexican food, and even hung out on Memorial Day with Collin.
Fans are convinced that Jon now has custody of Hannah, as he subtly hinted it on Instagram. Although he hasn’t officially confirmed the news, it’s hard to forget when Kate notoriously called Jon out for his “suspicious” relationship with Hannah back in 2016. And while Hannah seems happy to be back with her dad despite Kate’s vulgar accusations, Jon’s relationship with his ex is far from pleasant.
