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 actually agree with douchbag on this one. She had no right there. Also, I love how he said that she tried to cry it out with the cops but it didn’t work. HA! The only thing that I disagree with was him saying I’ll agree with hers if she’ll agree with mine. Both parents should have the right to disaprove of a babysitter, but it should be based on the babysitters care of the children, not the stupid reason that Jon gave. If one of them is uncomfortable with the others choice, it should be brought to the courts for them to decide, not fought out at the gate of the house!

Why would Jon need a baby sitter when he doesn't live with the kids in the first place. When it's his weekend, he should be with the kids and only the kids.

I don't blame Kate a bit for not wanting someone that JON picked to watch the kids. He has proved that his judgment is lacking and given his tendency towards screwing chicks around the age of 23....it's pretty damn obvious that he is sleeping with "the nanny." I wouldn't want to leave with kids with their self-centered, erratic father and some goldigging famewhore, either. ANY loving mother would be concerned. Look at his smug face. He needs some sense slapped into him. See, this is what happens when immature men are allowed to think for themselves. They lose their f'ing minds.

Kate was the best damn thing that ever happened to Jon. Unfortunately, Jon cannot see what his actions are doing to the children. Kate is strong and she will pull through this, but their children will suffer. Thankfully, they have one stable parent...and that is KATE.

Maybe the babysitter was there but not babysitting the kids. :) I still say one of the Gosselin children called Kate because Stephanie wasn't approved to be there and something was going on. JMHO

Why does anyone care what this unattractive, fat, out-of-shape douche has to say. And why are women going after him. Absolutely unbelievable. Is it the minute someone is on TV or has money, women overlook the fact that a guy is unattractive and fat, and they'll sleep with him or go after him any way. Please make him go away

Welll Johnny boy.... If you have the kids for the weekend and your not there during the week HOW DARE YOU GET A BABY SITTER ON YOUR TIME WITH THE KIDS..IT IS YOUR TIME WITH THEM NOT WITH YOUR PERSONAL GIRLIES. GET WITH THE SYSTEM. When you dont have the kids you do your personal crap when your with them go do things. That is what part time parenting is. GET WITH IT>

JOHN, GO IN THE HOUSE AND BE WITH YOUR KIDS!! Oh, and the line where you said something about you would approve Kate's babysitter if she approves yours??? Just shows your immaturity... Man, I am am disappointed in you!! Wake up dude and fight for your family. You are losing touch with reality more everyday, and don't trust your intoxicated brain to help you make decisions. It takes a few days of not drinking to clear your mind. Seriously get help!! I really hope you read all the comments here. After all you went out to talk to the reporters so you could "be heard" how about listening for a change!!!!!

It must be killing Kate to have a lack of control!! She needs to back off and let Jon do his parenting and make those decisions that she never allowed him to make when they were together. Poor, sad Kate.....awwww. She's a controlling, manipulative B@#%* and needs to stop playing the martyr....you sold out your family!!!! Kate...you disowned anyone who truly loved you, all for fame. How many friends does she have? ONE? The TLC camera crew don't count! She makes me sick!

Jon is an a**hole; if I were Kate I wouldn't trust his judgement either, he would probably hire some young girl so he can hit on her, he is disgusting. What, he can't even watch his kids when he has time with them??? Big date at the bar again??
