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.

Sounds like she's trying to protect her children. He's probably sleeping with the babysitter.

This bitch has trust issues with everyone. Hell, she has just straight issues with everyone. Both of them are idiots but she by far is the biggest bitch in the history of television. I called this during season 1. No man would put up with her bs for as long as he has with acting a fool eventually. She has to realize not everything is about her and now that Jon and others aren't making things about her or her feelings she's throwing fits and whining.

This really sucks to see this happening. I feel for all involved. People do go and grow their seperate ways sometimes, but either way emotions run high. I think that both adults are trying hard, but with emotions in the way, the seperation doesn't always run smoothly. I also think that Kate needs to let go a bit. When he does have the kids, she should not be interferring unless the kids are being put in harms way. As I can see it, the kids seem to be well looked after and loved by both parents. If in fact Jon is just wanting to party it up......at least he is not being a dead beat and still taking his responsibility seriously. The kids will hurt from this, but eventually they will cope, the beginning of a change is always the hardess. It is too bad that they focused more on the TLC Program, then on their relationship! If they had of put half as much energy in their relationship then what they have put into the show, perhaps things would have been different. Just my thoughts!

Why didn't they ask how Kate knew what was going on in the house? Obviously one of the kids felt it necessary to inform Kate about what was going on. It is supposed to be about the kids. Do you think the kids like seeing you keeping Mommy away? You couldn't even invite her in for the discussion? What were you hiding?

Did he want to leave them with the nanny to go out and party? If this was his court appointed time with the kids he should be with them not going out. When you have joint custody you work your private things around the days you have your kids.

Oh, and of course you don't try to see the kids when Kate is there. You can barely be dragged home when it is your turn and even then you want to leave and go out partying.

Kate I hope you read all these reports and posts, do you not see what a stupid-assed control freak you come across as.
Good for Jon standing up to you and making you abide by your own rules. So much for keeping it private, you fame whore!
I truely feel for your precious young children, having to live though this and being exploited to boot. The day is going to come when your children will hold you and Jon accountable for All the misery the two of you have forced upon them, and I can honestly say that day can't come soon enough.

He says he's spending "quality time" with his kids, so why does the need for babysitter even come up? For god's sake just raise your kids!
