Jon & Kate's Fight -- Blame the Babysitter

8/14/2009 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can blame the babysitter for Jon and Kate Gosselin's blowup last night.

Play video

Sources close to Jon and Kate tell TMZ that Kate was upset because Jon wanted to leave the kids with Stephanie Santoro -- the babysitter who was handpicked by Jon.

We're told Kate has serious trust issues with Santoro, and doesn't want her playing nanny with her kids. Kate went to the house to watch the kids instead of Santoro -- and that sparked the fight that ended with Kate calling 911.

Jon pretty much confirmed all this -- in his words -- this morning at his house. When in doubt, blame the nanny.

Oh Jon, I wanted to say one more thing. Your truley childish. Kate is a good mother and she had more on her hands with you. Why would you want to upset her. This is a women knows thing. The babysitter deal? I wonder why Kate doesnt like her? You know why. Your a little half pint idiot. You lie more than you breath. The kids do not need a trouble maker as your self. Kate is a good mother or she wouldnt worry about the kids and you dumb ass admitted it on tape." When she likes mine". How kiddy can you get ,,,,you goofy S.O.B.

Kimmy your right on about jon. What a dope. He is saying well when Kate likes my choice of babysitter then i will like hers and then the cops come then the kids see this crap HE started! Jon why? Egg head! Yes i thought you may have some God given sence but...............you dont. Stop it ya here. Jon just stop it. You know how to upset Kate and your doing it to her. This is wrong of you to let the mother of the kids be so upset that she goes to a hotel close to the kids. Your ignorant period jon. Kate is blessed that your gone,oh my so gone now!

She wanted this. No, I don't that he's getting a babysitter when he's suppose to be spending time with his kids. Both are at fault here. When asked by Regis Philbin in her interview, if she would consider ever going back to the way things were and ending the show, her response was that she could not go back. Well, maybe not to exactly the way things once were with hubby, but at least go back to letting the kids have a normal life w/o the cameras and eliminate all this nonsense that has happpened since the money came rolling in. The money is not worth sacrificing your childrens emotional well-being! She could end this, but she refuses to give this up, and that speaks volumes. She doesn't want to give up the attention she is getting plain and simple. It's way beyond being beneficial to the children at this point.

For the first few years of those children's lives he was barely there because he was working. Kate was always with them 24/7 never going out and yet he did with his buddies. Even since they broke up who is the one that is with the kids all the time? Also who is the one that is always at events and parties but not working? Kate is earning money for herself and the kids because they show will not last forever. How many hundreds of photos is there of Jon out partying and drinking even while they were married, yet Kate stayed was home watching the kids. He always has a babysitter around whenever he is watching the kids, what type of father figure is he? Just leave the whole family alone and then they work work out their issues without everyone breathing down their neck.

Maddy called Kate and told her this bar gal was back at the house WITH HER BABY. Jon had their regular male nanny there but Jon needed bar gal also. Jon new this would upset Kate so he did it to rattle her and it worked. The older girls call Mommy and tell her what is going on.

And, WTH is Jon doing going to Vegas in 2 wks. throwing a poolside party and hanging out with the Fashion Designer again? He's NOT a celebrity, he does nothing that warrants him to be acting as one! It's ridiculous! He's a Dad who needs to be acting like one and be home with his kids! He knew the deal when they set out to do the Invitro, so his behavior now is disturbing. Yes, Kate berated & belittled the crap out of him, but he should have risen above it, and moved on but done it in a more responsible and dignified manner, not the "Yipee I'm free of the Hag and I'm lettin' lose noooowwwww!" behavior he has been displaying for all the world to watch! Move on, but don't make it so painful for your kids, and for your family to have to witness this. The kids deserve better than this craziness that both parents are allowing to go on.They deserve to have their family involved in their lives. Mom & Dad, you will regret depriving them of this later on, when it will be too late. Trust me, they'll call you on it!

I can't believe this guy. MAN he's a tool.

Only a (responsible) parent would understand how something like this could get you crazy. Your kids take top priority over everything, and I don't blame Kate one bit. I'd have crashed through the window if needed, if I was concerned about my children. She is the only parent who seems to care about them anyway. John is a total loser.

John can choose who ever the hell he wants to babysit the kids, Kate needs to be BITCHSLAPPED then maybe she will shut her piehole.
Kate started all this by being the SUPERBITCH and made everyones life in the family miserable and she was the one who started divorce proceedings so she could PORK her body guard more frequently. Cant you see John is just getting back at her by dating multiple women?

You know Kate carried those babies inside of her and i know that coulnt have been easy at all. I feel Kate is a great mother. Kate may not however make a good wife but she really seems to love her children.I feel Jon needs to take a hike as some post back said. Just get out Jon. You use these children to much against Kate and it is so wrong of you period. Jon you need to watch who you let around these children, use your brain and try hard to think why some people want to be around them? Money photos all kinds of things as you see this is not a normal family here. Your well known now dumb ass and you best listen to Kate and look out for who is around those babies. Kate is a great mother. Her choice in men surprise me however when i see you Jon. Dumb and even dumber.

Why does anyone think she is a good mother? Everything she does with the kids, including the staged playing in the driveway is for the P people. Has she ever actually gotten in the water at the pool or ocean and played with the kids. Of couse not, can't get that mullet wet and be camera ready at all times. Have you seen the way she treats those kids, or the crap she feeds them on paper plates. She never given them her full attention, the phone is almost always clued to her head. And what's with 5 year olds still on training wheels. They are both guilty of mentally crippling these kids. They are 5 and not entering kindgergarten yet. Normally the cut off would be 5 before Sept and in some cases December. She lies out of both sides of her mouth, every answer to any questions, is the same canned rehearsd response. Hopefully the plug is pulled soon for the sake of these poor children.
