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 to me that she's the instigator. it was his turn with the kids and she needs to approve the babysitter? Gosh he didnt' interfere with her own babysitter.

Please for the love of all that is holy, quit giving these two losers more coverage! They continue to pimp out their children, with TLC blessings. Contact the Discovery channel and demand they end this show!

Jon's an idiot. Parents don't babysit their own kids. I hope Kate uses incidents like these if there's ever a custody battle. It doesn't seem like Jon wants any custody anyways, would rather whore out with any ugly bitch under the sun. The poor kids being affected by this idiocy. Seems like Mady and Cara are going to be the ones looking after the 5yr olds more. Jon's too focused on the ho's than the kids. sad. What an idiot.

I don't see why either one of them need babysitters or nannies. It's called being a parent and RAISING YOUR KIDS!! I had 3 kids in 3 yrs and had zero help, if I had an appt or needed to go shopping then I just took all 3 of them with me. Right now their kids are 5 and 8, it's not like they are babies, they should be able to do everything by themselves at this point. Maybe a sitter for things like going to the dr or whatever, but it always seems like they BOTH have a 'babysitter' or 2 or 3 hanging around, in addition to the camera crew and production assistants. Neither of them have ANY idea what it's like to be a normal parent.

"if she approves of my babysitters, i'll approve of hers" playing a games with your ex-wife for the sake of your children?! Kate probably tried to barge in because she was worried that while Jon was banging the babysitter no one was watching the kids. This guy is such a douche bag ... i cant stand him!

FED UP WITH THESE IDIOTS    

Number 42. I believe what he is meaning is...He knows Kate enough to know she will have a good babysitter and she should know him well enough to know he would have one too. I watched the show religously until last season and this season. I also have kids and I am totally with Jon on this whole thing. Kate is very controlling and he's basically saying you be ridiculous, I'll be ridiculous. Which of course is not very mature but at you can see is not calculated and mean when it comes to his answers. He's just normal like all the rest of us.

Was he nursing his litter? Looks like he's got boobs and a bad case of vaginosis! What a loser! Gets money, mansion, and hair plugs thanks to his kids, and then bam!! Off to do every dip chick in town! He's repulsive.

Jon is more concerned about his personal Midlife Crisis Meltdown, vs. his kids.

They have a full time nanny. This idiot hires a Stripper Sitter for his own use.

What a dolt.

What is wrong with this picture? WHY oh WHY is anyone talking about these people? What talent do they have that they are contributing to society or this planet? I can't believe this idiotic coverage and I boycott anything with their name on it....just had to get this off my chest. I am sick to death of hearing about them.
