Gosselin Divorce Docs -- We Got 'Em!

6/24/2009 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was only a matter of time -- 2 days to be exact -- but we got a hold of the once-sealed divorce documents in the Jon & Kate Gosselin case. Here's what's interesting. The docs say they just can't agree on who gets what.

Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce documents

According to the documents, "plaintiff and defendant have been unable to agree as to the equitable distribution" of their marital property. It goes on: "Plaintiff [Kate] is and has always been willing to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement."

But we checked this out with some Pennsylvania lawyers, who say this is boilerplate language -- everyone who files says this. The real test is when Jon gets served and the lawyers try pounding out a property settlement.

Yes, he finally grew a set, but it took 10 years and 8 kids to get them. WHATEVER. Looking back at the show, she has always been like she is. Once he started partying (which is so immature for a married father to do), he started hearing how he shouldn't take it and how he could do better. Once he quit work and went home to be a stay-at-home-daddy and had to have more responsibility for the kids, it is a problem. He should go and get a job, she should stay at home, they should seek counseling and work it out. Seriously, how many women will actually want to be with a man with 8 kids? Those poor kids.

Disgusted with Roosterhead    

It's obvious Kate is posting here as Anna, observer, and beverlyhillsmom90210!

I like what here we go wrote in post #45: "...if they did not purchase it, it goes back to whoever donated it to them. That would only leave a few items left...it would be much easier to split then. These people need to PAY for what they get. Stop giving them everything. Ok they have a lot of children,..well look around..other people have children! . . ."

TLC and their advertisers bankrolled this media whore's exploitation of her children. That her husband and children suffer means nothing to this Oprah-wannabe. (You don't think so yet?! Watch and wait.)

Has anyone noticed TLC's cameras were on only when SHE was around? This meant that when Kate was off with her bodyguard on her many tours, her book signings, and her media meetings, Jon was home with the kids. Doing the work she no longer wanted to do. She was off with her bodyguard long before Jon even met the college girl. Who cheated first? I bet it was Roosterhead. (Good name for her, Team Jon at post #181!)

I pity the children she exploits. Jon obviously doesn't want to, but Roosterhead and TLC do!

From grammar school, I remember we all knew which kids had a crazy mother; well, TLC and their advertisers have made real certain the entire country knows about the Gosselin kids' crazy mother.

Pennsylvania, do your job and rescue these children from their uncontrollable mother, their working hours, TLC, and the privacy invasion which is ruining their lives. Their lives are and will be VERY difficult. Please stop further damage!

Jon, Aunt Jodi, and Uncle, thank you for trying to defend the children's best interest. Your and the children's opponents are the disgusting TLC, TLC's slob advertisers, and greedy, greedy Roosterhead.

Thank goodness! Alright, now there has to be long, drawn-out episodes entitled: "Telling the kids" and drawing out their whole divorce (and their kids through it, with lots of taping of kids crying and being told they are loved, you know, private family moments aired for public consumption because the parents are more interested in MONEY then the well-being of their children)! And I am sure there will be at least one more Kate book about how she is "coping" - with 3 live-in Nannies and a bit of smeary "tell-all" to pad her bank account. But then, oh then! They can disappear into obscurity and we can never hear about them again. Whew.

It's been a long, painful ride, glad it's almost over. Hope the kids get some therapy to deal with why they were treated like circus freaks inviting millions to come gap at them for all their formative years. Poor tykes.

What is with the hand-written $282.50 on page 3? Is that how much Katie Irene had to pay to file for divorce? Or did TLC pay for that too? To complete the rest of the 40-episode contract, TLC has plans - taking the Gosselins to Africa, China and Korea. So, for $75,000 a pop - the show must go on!

here's a thought, quit the show, get real jobs like real families and struggle to support your family like REAL families.

And Kate's definition of what's reasonable is she gets to keep house/cars/everything and Jon gets to keep his clothes.
