Jon Gosselin Ordered to Return $180,000

TMZ has learned Jon Gosselin has been ordered to return $180,000 in marital funds, which were removed in violation of an arbitrator's order.

According to Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date."

Jon is required to repay the loot by October 26 -- the next hearing -- or appear before the judge for a contempt proceeding.

The judge also ordered Kate to provide an accounting of past expenses -- also due by Oct. 26.

Kate says, "As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children. Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues."

Always the MASTER MANIPULATOR! What else did the judge state about HER portion she needs to return & account for?? Since the court minutes are public record, someone will dig up the dirt & report it. She didn't win the hearing 100%. She petitioned for $$ to be returned to the joint account BUT what about the other parts of her petition? Child custody, spousal support? Interesting, her lawyer didn't speak to that. Probably because the judge saw that there was means in the family estate for both parties to support themselves.

Now Jon needs to hire a financial advisor to insure he is getting his fair share of ALL MONIES earned in the course of their contract with TLC. Not the measly 'allowance' Kate threw his way whenever she felt like it.

Kate says "I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children."

When will parents learn it is "their" children...not "MY" children?

Ummm.... Is there a typo in this post? Should it read MR. not Ms? It seams to me that of the $230k or perhaps in the final accounting $235k Jon removed from the account that currently he is required to return $180k. The balance $55k of the total $135k may yet need to be returned.

Would TMZ please confirm if this is a typo? If there is then it has a material impact on the implications of this post.

It looks like the GWOPS are going to flood the blogs and comment boards to try and defend their precious Jon who has just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. The money Jon took went to Hailey and himself, Kate spent ALLOWED money from the court on the household expenses and the children. GWOPS your boy showed his true colors finally

I thought Jon said over and over again on television that he didn't take any money from the account.

"The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date."

Didn't Kate and her lawyer publicly state on numerous occasions that Jon took $232,000 from the account and Kate only had $1,000 to pay bills with? How come she now used $55k to pay bills? Seems like both Gosselins are clueless about money.

I'm glad the Judge is holding the next hearing public. I hope he throws the book at both parents!
