Jon Fires Back at Kate -- You Took $$$ Too!

10/11/2009 12:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In football, if both teams commit a penalty on the same play, they just do the play over. Does the same thing apply when Jon and Kate Gosselin both allegedly violate a court order?

Jon Gosselin, Kate Gosselin

A few days after Kate claimed Jon raided their joint bank account (a legal no-no), Jon filed papers of his own claiming she did the same. According to the papers filed last week, Jon claims Kate withdrew over $60,000 from their joint account between July and September 2009.

He also claims she took out over $1 million from February 2008 to June 2009 that have not been properly accounted for.

Sources connected to Kate contend her withdrawals were legal and note that Jon withdrew $230,000 without the necessary permission required by the arbitrator. Both sides are due back in court on Tuesday.

My God! You call this being a man Jon? It's more like a two year old tattle tailing. Stop Jon stop. Kate has so why can't you? You've been mouthing off on every darn tv entertainment show. Obviously you care more about your own celebrity status and desperate for the media attention & you want everyone to like you. It isn't happening. Quit hurting your children and figure out how you are going to support them since you took the income away from your wife and kids. Get a job and shut up. Please, please go away.

Harvey - you're a lawyer. Why is it the courts have not appointed a guardian for the kids? These two lunatics aren't looking after them, they're preoccupied with their own personal dramas.

Why is everyone dropping the ball on this? Disgusting. Simply pathetic and disgusting.

All along, I thought it was Kate with the smarts. She seems to be well prepared and organized.Daily she is constantly scheduling plans and itinerary. How in the world would she trust this idiot of a husband with a joint bank account? Well, I can't still figured out why in the heck she married him in the first place!

This is the longest 15 minutes of fame in the history of television. I am so over both of them that if I saw them coming at me I'd cross the street to avoid them. The children are going to make some therapist very wealthy.

If this is true, why is it coming out a week after Jon f-ed up? Why didn't he mention it right away?

To down with Kate:

I think, first and foremost, you need to look deep inside yourself and ask yourself why you feel so much hatred and judgment towards a woman who, it appears, is a total stranger to you and has done nothing to harm you. I don't approve of some of Jon's more bizarre recent behavior but I neither hate him nor feel any need to call him names. I really hope he gets his act together because the children clearly love and need both parents, whether married or divorced.

The current issue, though, is whether either or both parents have violated the interim arbitration award. Personally, I consider a charge that he withdrew the bulk of the money market account without even asking Kate's consent (as required by the interim arbitration award) far more serious than the delay in reports which is one of his major allegations against her.

A few points puzzle me. In his answer and counterclaim, he clearly admits making substantial unauthorized withdrawals from the account. Whether or not he had online access to information about the account, he was clearly able to withdraw substantial money from it. I've never known a bank which, if an account holder asks what the balance in an account is, won't give it. Either he didn't ask for it and didn't care if he was draining the account below the minimum balance to avoid fees or he knew and did it anyhow. The fact that there is only just over a thousand dollars left in the account point towards the latter, to me.

I don't think he's a bad person or evil, but I think he is following very bad advice. Even if Kate were everything you claim, she is still the mother of their children. I've seen far too many divorcing spouses who put their children in the line of fire of his or her anger and bitterness towards the other spouse or use them as a weapon which can inflict terrible wounds on the other spouse. The problem is that, even in those cases where the divorcing spouse's anger and bitterness is totally understandable, they can lose sight of the permanent harm this does to the children.

As for Jon and NYC, once the final equitable distribution of marital property is made, what he does with his share (including what and who he spends it on) is his business so long as he meets his obligations to the children first. However, when he invoked TLC's commitment (which TLC honored) that, if either parent objected, filming would stop, he terminated the family's primary source of steady income. Even if he did this in the best interests of the children and out of not spite against Kate, and the jury's out on that one, one would think that a responsible parent would also chose a more frugal lifestyle in the meantime until either or both of them could find other employment and replace at least some of the income no longer coming from TLC.

In any event, the matter is now in the hands of the court and the arbitrator, where it belongs.

Wake up Jon lovers! It's all about timing. Why do you think Jon's first lawyer quit? He quit right AFTER Jon started defying the court order not to withdraw large amounts of funds. He had ethics, not this dirtbag he has now. When Jon defied the court and when Jon started the high dollar interviews his first lawyer was the smart one to get the heck as far away from Jon Gosselin as possible. Bet that since his dirtbag lawyer now had sponsorship withdrawn they try to delay the court date. I bet Jon is saying he wants to go to the Jewish faith because the judge could be Jewish.
