Judge to Jon & Kate -- Settle this Mess!

10/13/2009 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce clearly has had it up to here ... he didn't rule on any of the epic conflicts but ordered Jon and Kate to settle up and work it out with the arbitrator. The judge said he'll be down with anything the arbitrator decides ... with one provision -- it has to be in the best interests of the children.

The judge said any monies taken improperly from the joint account should be returned, but he didn't get specific. He also admonished Jon and Kate to keep things "private" and "amicable." Good luck with that.

Before the short open hearing, lawyers met with the judge in chambers for about an hour but no settlement was reached.

They're due back in court on October 26.

Hell will freeze over before these two work anything out and they don't understand what "the best interest of the children" even means.

HEY KATE AND JON!!

GET IT DONE FOR THE SAKE OF THE KIDS.. And NOT your petty money hungry ways.

I am speaking to both of YOU. This is ridiculous, he said she took money, she said he took money.
How about it's the KID'S money!

Wake up.

These two misfits 15 minutes will eventually be up and then they will have to work real jobs just like the rest of us. Until then they should be saving money not squandering it on expensive cars, trips, etc. Ugh...I cannot STAND these two losers. Using their children as cash cows.

this sure wasn't a surprise that the judge wouldn't issue a ruling either way. courts don't move that quick and anyone who has ever been in a divorce situation knows that. as for jon & kate i think they BOTH took money from the account and they should both have to prove when they took it and what they did with it. I beleive Kate is pretty devious and knows how to play the game. poor jon is a rookie.

Look for Jon on 8pm tonight on either Nancy Grace (he wouldn't dare) or Larry King (with sleezy lawyer in tow)

Kate should be making an appearance on the View sometime this week.

But JON will definetly be the first one to talk. HEY PAPS, look for him by the fence, he hangs there alot.

The only way these two will keep their mouth shut is if the judge issues an official gag order.

Even the judge has had it with Jon and Kate !!! He also admonished Jon and Kate to keep things "private" and "amicable."
Finally even the job gets it with Jon and Kate.... It's all about them. What about the adorable children !!

i use to feel sorry for john now i think he is just a dirtbag. Still not a fan of hers but he is the one running around like a teen age boy doing what he wants with who he wants with no worries. And he has become such a big media whore. Always in the camera shot of the photogs. John needs to man up and take responsibility and act like a man in his 30s with eight childred not in his teens. They both have to remember that in the future their children can see how this was all played out.

They should have prohibited these idiots from pulling out the violin in the media.

No one should feel sorry for either of them. Just the children.
