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.

Some of you people need some information. It was not Jon's "day" he has been home with the kids since last Thursday. Kate was on the Today show the Friday before this, she stated she was going to be in town all week doing media interviews ahead of a fundraiser she was hosting next Friday. Jon had been home for a week with his kids and the normal nanny was busy that day so he called this girl over becuase she is close and has a flexible schedule. If you read other news you would know he took Cara & Maddie school supply shopping and left the six young ones home with the sitter. Maybe he should have taken all eight to the store and created a scene or slip in and out with just the older two as he did.

Kate freaked drove home from NYC and Jon stood his ground it was his time and she refuses to release control over everybody.

jon and kate should be cancelled altogether.
right from the get//go, i was supportive of jon...still am....but his behavior is now un-acceptable and he has to get his act together. all in all, he seems to be a good guy....but has issues and needs to mature......kate seems to be "selfish and mean!" i was turned off by her attitude....diane

It's called "first right of refusal"...the other parent gets the first option of being the "babysitter" before anyone else is called. Happens all the time in divorces/child custody cases.

Try listening to the tape before you start attacking. They were doing some filming while Jon had his custody time. All of the kids weren't in each shot. The babysitter was there while Jon was also there, not so he could go out somewhere. There are EIGHT children in case you've forgotten. He couldn't watch the ones when they weren't being filmed with the ones that were being filmed. He was just making sure there was someone to help keep and eye on them for their safety. She needs to stay gone when it's his custody time. She's the one that told him the marriage was over. He asked her to go to counseling before they split up and she said no.He had them and so she wasn't being filmed, she had to do something to get some publicity, that's all she thinks about anyway, she has some fantasy that she is some kind of star.

When you hear the entire story you will then know that they are both trailer trash that hit a lottery.How ever she is the evil of the two and her anger problem would make anybody live on eggshells.Any time that you see one of the kid's upset or being mistreated she is the parent that is with them.Shewas the one that file for divorce and he jumped all over the chance of being a free man and in order to gain that freedom he has to lose time with the kid's and I really don't think he likes doing it but the kid's are suffering at the hands of their angry mother.She goes on tv just to slam him and has to take a bodyguard with her. And who does she really think she is that she ctually needs anybody to accompany her.I didn't think that having eight kids was entitlement to having bodyguards.It would be nice if she read all of the comments about her so she would see that she is worse then OCTOMOM. No wonder why she didn't want to comment about her when she was on Oprah several monts ago when OCTOMOM was the rage of everybody. He needs to take a step back and see what he has done negativly and work on fixing it with his kid's. And in order to that he needs to unload that pound puppy and do things alone and just ignore the stupidity of his ex wife because she need's some very serious help but she is in denial of her problems and the kid's will only suffer because of it.And if they were really having a problem with the poparazzi then they should call their local law enforcement on them in order to keep them out of harms way I know that is what I would do. After all they don't know who they are and if any of them are pedifiles or are just casing the place in order to rob them. Neither one of them have the children's safety at the top of the list and that is the worse thing of them all.

Jon obviously selected a babysiter that he knew would cause Kate pain and concern. That's so mature. he cannot be thinking of those kids, when he's trying so hard to grab media attention and inflict pain on Kate. Please close the curtain on Jon, give him no more attention. Let him romp around with Kate's plastic surgeion's daughter and former Star Magazine, Kate 2.0 and anybody else he so chooses. She can be a better parent without drawing attention to herself with her choics in "friends". I think she has her kids as her priority and Jon obviously so does not. Adios, Jon. The TV set will go off if your appear on any show.

Well the reality has come out again that Kate was called by her children in the home because Jon was messing around with the babysitter. He's a loser that needs to stop messing around with these young girls and focus on his children.
