Kate's Lawyer: Jon & His Lawyer are Frauds

10/5/2009 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a letter Kate Gosselin's lawyer fired off to the lawyer for Jon -- and, to put it mildly, it's war.

Jon And Kate Gossellin Read the doc

Legal pit bull Marty Singer wrote the letter this past Friday. TMZ obtained a copy. In it, Singer expresses outrage that Jon secretly raided Jon and Kate's money market account "of hundreds of thousands of dollars," leaving only about $1,000. Singer says the withdrawal is not only "outrageous," it directly violates the Arbitration Award in the divorce which requires both parties to agree before any money is withdrawn.

Singer -- who says the withdrawal of funds is fraudulent and contemptible -- claims both Jon and his lawyer, Mark Heller, are hypocrites, after they went on Larry King's show and claimed family values (not money) was the important thing.

Singer says Heller has done this before, citing a New York Supreme Court decision which says Heller directed one of his clients in a divorce to "withdraw everything that's in the bank" so the money could be used to pay his fee.

And then there's this ... Singer blasts Heller, noting that the New York Supreme Court "addressed charges that you violated 'thirty-eight counts alleging multiple violations of the disciplinary rules,' and charges that you 'had engaged in a pattern of misconduct involving misrepresentations, deceit, abusive treatment of clients, fee gouging, neglect and willful failure to return unearned retainers to his clients' in matters which involved your 'mishandling of the matters of twelve separate clients.'" The letter goes on to claim Heller admitted to engaging in "professional misconduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation."

As we first reported, Kate's lawyers are going to court tomorrow, demanding that the monies be returned to the account and asking for a contempt citation.

We called Heller but he was not available for comment.

Now, can everyone see why Kate had to yell at the idiot all time. He has no common sence and is a self centered child who needs someone with intelligence to keep him from hurting himself. Appenently his attorney needs the same guidance.

I am not sure who is the bigger idiot-Jon or Kate.Both of them should be ashamed of their behaviors both during the marriage as well as after. Neither one of them are fit to be parents. Poor children-they will suffer for years.

It is time to call the whole thing quits. This is nothing but a way to improve ratings for a failing show. Many people are single parents or have been through divorce,etc. The network needs to get a grip and call it quits
