Jon Gosselin -- Contemptible?

10/4/2009 3:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin, Jon GosselinKate Gosselin is drawing the big gun -- we've learned she's hired legal pit bull Marty Singer to go after Jon Gosselin ... asking a judge to hold him in contempt of court for raiding their joint bank account to the tune of more than $200,000.

We've learned there is an existing court order prohibiting Jon or Kate from withdrawing any money from the account without the consent of both parties.

We've learned lawyers for Kate will go to Pennsylvania court tomorrow and argue that Jon has flagrantly violated that order, that he should be forced to return the money to the account and held in contempt.

Ironically, Jon suggested on "Larry King" he wanted to save the marriage -- at the same time he emptied the account.

Jon's actions speak volumes! The man has never held a job longer than 2 years before the show. If he cared about his children why would he take away his only means to provide for them? No wonder Kate came off as "witchy" at him on the show sometimes. Just think how difficult it must have been trying to communicate with a dim witted, lazy, selfish, immature, moron as him while dealing with 8 children too? Be nice to her TMZ staff....she is taking the high road and just think how difficult that must be. Give her the praise she deserves and has earned.

Jon Stole the money frm his kids and Kate.That money was set aside for bills,food clothing by the judge.He is loser.Without the show he can not support the kids and he does not care!If he can't have the money nobody gets it!!RIGHT JON!!I think the judge should make him pay child support now,big child support.Kate was trying to keep things going to support the kids and keep their life in the style they are use to. But Jon wants his share without working for it.Jon you walked away from it all.You want everything for doing nothing.You stole that money.Go get a Job.Show how you are going to support them without living off your wife and kids!You can't Stupid!Keep walking away ,all you do is spoil good things.
Remember it was you that wanted to find yourself!! ,that raising these kids was too much for you.You ran away from your responsibilities and commitment just to have sex with other woman that would not even look at you unless it was for the money these kids and Kate made for you to spend on them!!SHAME!!!

I cannot believe so many of you have fallen for Kate's BS. If their "story" had not been picked up and put on TV, they'd be living in a trailer park with Jon's salary to support them, which would have been fine like many other people in their position (except a lot of other people in similar positions, the wife works as well; has Kate ever worked in her life? I truly do not know the answer to that question, but I do know that a lot of women in her position HAVE to work. It's the only way they can feed their children and pay the bills) the kind that CHOOSE artificial insemination, which SO often results in multiple births. If they didn't expect to have multiple children and could not afford it, they should not have done it to begin with, which, as it so predictably turned out, is ALL about money today. All of a sudden THEY, not one or the other, but both of them, became RICH. That's exactly when the problems started. And that's exactly when the problems started with the kids. They are spoiled little brats. Because of the show they get to do anything they want. What’s going to happen to those poor kids when the money runs out? They’ll be lost, hurt and devastated and not understand a thing. What would you do if your spouse, or a TV show gave you millions of dollars as long as you spent the majority of it on your 8, 10, or 12 kids. Most people would start getting really greedy and that looks exactly like what happened here, especially to Kate. Jon may have pulled out a couple of hundred thousand dollars out of a joint account, but he KNEW he couldn’t really get away with it and would eventually have to put the money back (not an excuse), if that’s what really happened. I couldn’t help but think what some of the “less advantaged” people in this country thought when they heard Kate say “He only left me with $1,000.00 to pay the bills this month.” Does anyone realize that $1,000.00, in one month, is much more than most single moms of two or three children have to spend on bills? Does anyone know what the poverty level is, or minimum wage?

I've only watched the show about 3 or 4 times this past season, but I've read about it a lot, against my better judgment. And I was right. It turned out just the way I thought. The parents are fighting, and if I were Jon, I'd be pissed too; Kate's the one who's always going on trips, on promotional tours (on one TV show I heard Jon say that Kate was giving him massive crap about NOT going on the promotional tours with her and his response was "who is going to watch the children," to which she had no response) ridiculous public appearances, on TV shows, on news shows, you name it, she's on it, and has anyone noticed how much she's sexed herself up; nothing wrong with that in and of itself, but the name of the show is Jon & Kate Plus 8, meaning the emphasis is supposed to be on their eight children, why is she trying, unsuccessfully I might add, to be a sexy mom (not that they don't exist, because they certainly do) and why is Jon home with the rest of the kids, cause she only travels with a "set" of them at one time. I find Kate despicable. Recently everyone has been on Jon’s case for extramarital affairs; forgive me for being cynical, but over the past few years while Kate has been doing all of the traveling, by herself, don’t tell me she hasn’t been more than tempted to cheat on her husband. In fact, I’d bet money on it. She continues to show her “upper body” more and more, and thinks that her hairdo is "current." Wrong. I honest to God do not understand what her appeal is to people. To me she appears to be a conniving, dishonest, lying, attention seeking, money grubbing B#$%@.

Yep, Kate manipulated Jon again, once again she **** all over him. Hmm, now how is it that Jon raided the accounts, but supposedly repaid it...and even Hailey says she loaned Jon the money to do it? But now Kate says he didn't?
Kate is the master manipulator. Jon is a chump for ever being with this narcissistic, succubus...Katie (Freebie Queen) Irene Kreider.



There will never be enough for Kate, she will always want more, just one more. More, more, more.
