Kate Cries

I Can't Pay My Bills!

10/5/2009 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Gosselins continued their messy break-up in the media today -- with Kate fighting back the waterworks while claiming she can't afford to pay her bills.

Kate came out swinging on "Today" this morning, slamming Jon for clearing $230,000 out of the couple's joint bank account: "You've left your children and their mother unable to pay for the roof over their head. It's unacceptable."

As for Jon's claim the children don't want to do the show anymore, Kate says there was "wailing and sobbing" when she broke the news to 'em that filming has halted.

As TMZ previously reported, Kate's lawyers are going to court today to demand the return of the cash and a contempt citation against Jon. Stay tuned ...

Please, no sympathy for Kate, Jon and TLC. Some are asking how she will provide for her 8 kids. The same way my mother provided for the 10 of us. Working. She was a nurse (like Kate claims to be). Sure, we didn't get the freebies she gets for her kids, but we all received college educations, some with Masters. We all had chores, we respected our mother and were a happy, well adjusted family. Try it Kate, it's for the kids..........

If Kate is so penniless why was she talking about buying an "eight diamond ring with a pearl" to replace her wedding ring? Where is that money coming from? An early Mother's Day present from the kids? ;-)

JON.........GET SOME BALLS AND BE A MAN FOR ONCE! FIRST YOU HAD YOUR WIFE RULE YOU AND NOW YOU CAN'T EVEN SUPPORT YOUR KIDS. SCREWING EVERY SKANK AROUND DOESN'T MAKE YOU A MAN. PROVIDE FOR YOUR KIDS AND LET'S BE DONE WITH HEARING ABOUT THESE 2 TRAIN WRECK PARENTS! IT'S OBVIOUS THAT NEITHER HAVE THE KIDS IN MIND!

What is wrong with you people? Kate needs the money to pay the bills and buy food for the children, Jon took it to globe trot with trashy women! He is out of control. I hope she does have a secret account because she is going to need it. How dare he steal from his family, some father he turned out to be. And don't be fooled, he only wants to stop the show to get back at Kate and is using the excuse of the welfare of the kids to get what he wants.

Oh BOO HOO you hateful shrew bitch!! YOU started this by driving Jon away with your controlling manipulative behavior! Your own family can't stand you. And you contradict everything you say!! This show is clearly ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. Jon wants to do what is right for his kids. Go get a real job Kate. Your kids are in school now. YOU chose to have them. Jon said all along he would be happy with the twins but he gave in after Kate begged him for more children. Deal with your own mess Kate. By the way, I know how you can save some money.... fire your hairdresser and stop with the professional manicures and tanning sessions.

For the love of God! Are we suppose to believe that the money that Jon took is all the money that she has? Come on Kate..America is not that stupid! She needs to be on the phone with her lawyers trying to get that money back. Jon must have found her secret accounts. Why don't they talk to each other instead of the camera? They made millions on those kids and that's all they have left. When she started crying I wanted to throw up. Go away Jon& Kate....go take care of your eight!

Hey Kate, you wouldn't be crying if you didn't have 8 babies with that weird looking douchebag Jon. Why does Hollywood reward people who make irrevocably bad decisions??

He's despicable! He wants all the benefits of the money from working but not the responsibilities of having to earn it or take care of their children. He wants the rights but not the responsibilities....and he really showed his true character by how he's conducted himself personally: by being a promiscuous slut and media hound.
What a jerk!
I hope the judge hands him his balls on platter! Oops, I guess he doesn't really have any does he, so a finding of contempt with a corresponding order to repay and a fine would be enough.

wishing they would just go the hell away!    

I'd bet money that the only wailing & crying over the halt in production came from Kate & Mady.

I don't believe Kate or her lawyer was stupid enough to leave all of her money in a joint account, sorry. If so, then Kate needs a new lawyer!

TMZ, please stop airing any stories on either Kate or Jon Gosselin. While they may be media whores, their kids do not deserve this. They have two eight year old daughters who will be turning 9 this week, and are old enough to see all of this on TMZ... as are their friends. Spare those kids of reading about their parents--both of whom seem to want to wage this divorce in public... once again showing that neither parent has much regard for their kids' welfare.

As for the kids wailing and crying over not filming... give me a break. We've all seen the kids respond to not wanting to film...so I'm sure they'll be fine. Kids also whine when you say no to cookies before dinner, but that's part of being a parent. You need to say "no" when it's better for the kids... and filming is NOT good for these kids.

Take the high road, TMZ. Say "no" for the sake of the kids. Let both parents fade into obscurity.

I hate to break it to everyone, but people like these two are the reason the rest of the world hates America. What a bunch of low life trashy people...

Fools Rush In    

Jon is not only a jerk, which he always has been, but now he is proving himself to be VERY dumb, too.
Just assume, for the sake of argument, that Kate was the most evil person ever born in history. Why would you continually set yourself up to go down in flames, like a bag of dog poop that he is, by suddenly deciding to stop the show in the "best interests" of the children, just as soon as you are cut out of the gig, clean out the bank account immediately after and parade a lawyer around that appears to be a cheap sleaze that got his degree off the internet?
The guy is a brick and if he cares that much about his kids not being affected by the press, then quit doing stuff that stirs it up.
I hope he is dropped for Ed Hardy soon. I saw someone in Manhattan wearing one yesterday and looked at them as being associated with the low gray matter bonehead, Jon. That's not a good thing.

Get her and her whole family off the TV! I am not only sick of them I am sick of Octo-Mom's hairy ass too!! First of all I didn't think that Jon's name was on the checking account because she only give him $5 for lunch anyway..Hell, he's probably spent it already on ED HARDY tee-shirts.... And, I thought that all the money was in a trust for the kids.... get Kate and Jon ass's off the TV I am sick of them!!!
