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.

I wouldn't want anyone under 30 alone with Jon and the kids. Every female under 30 that he has been around he has bedded. First, 23 yr. old Deanna Hummel, next 22 yr old Hailey Glassman (see turned 22 in July '09), then the nanny 23 yr old Stephanie Santoro, then 26 year old Kate Major. This all in an alarming three months. I don't blame Kate for not want Stephanie there. Not like there wont be PDA and you can't do much babysitting while you are having sex.

One of the kids obviously called when Stephanie showed up. How did Kate know to come? They don't like seeing daddy feeling up the babysitter. Poor kids. I hope Kate gets full custody so Jon can party all he wants. He's a 22 yr old boy in a fat man's body.

Jon is a pig. He is acting like a fifteen year old boy who just discovered sex for the first time and it's all he can think about. Apparently Kate's babysitters, who have been with the kids for YEARS are not attractive enough to watch the kids when he's there(why does he need a babysitter anyway?? He's supposed to be spending time with his kids!!)so he has to hire a new one? Kate is right to worry about what is going on when he's there because he doesn't care about anything but sex, drinking and more sex.

Ah...Remember the good old days when Jon & Kate actually had to be with their children all the time and act like parents!! Amazing how money can totally change the family dynamic with nannies/babysitter/security guards/agents and such. I assume that's why the ratings have dropped over the last few weeks. No one wants to see Jon act like an immature winey teen trying to recapture his lost youth (nice earrings) because he has too much responsibility at 32. Or Kate be the wicked control queen of the world. Though in her defense, Jon has made some pretty horrible decisions on his own over the last 6 months. So I can see why she has to be this way now with him. Don't worry, the money will be gone soon enough because the show will not last!!!

Of course Kate has a right to make sure her kids are safe with a respectable sitter. So far Jon has not proved to be a reliable guy with the women in his life. Lets hope he's not "dating" the less than acceptable stripper babysitter.

WTF does he need a babysitter for if he's there to have "his time" with the kids???? They're both idiots and those kids need to be out of their mess. College funds my ass...those two are spending it right and left on themselves.

Hey, why don't we let vick take care of them? Put them in a ring and let them fight it out and the loser can either be hung or drowned.

When did Kate start to snap at Jon? Wonder if he was fooling around with Glassman at the time of the tummy tuck. I always felt there was a reason she criticized him in public when he couldn't answer back very well.

John is a jerk. John thinks he is big stud since he moved out. The fancy apartment, fancy car, fancy bike and money to spend. But what happens when the divorce is final. Hailey will have to get a real job to help him pay child support. And will all that love still be there? Or will her rich daddy pay the support for Jon. Because his daughter decided to be with a man with eight kids and lots of responsibilities...

With all their money, why have they not hired 2 full time nanny's that work 3 1/2 days each so those poor children do have to go through all this. It's bad enough that their parents can't get along, why keep parading a ton of babysitters thru their lives. Those children need stability not more fighting. Jon needs to grow up and Kate needs to shut up!
