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.

The little weazel looked scared to death after appearing in court.
Not so smug now are you Jon.. What's wrong has reality set in. If your this scared after just a one hour meeting where nothing happened or was decided... a word of advice wear some depends for
the real showdown with the arbitrator and judge.

Arch where all all the pictures of Kate cheating? The paps have been following her for months and not one photo has surfaced of her with anyone. If she is that good at hiding she must have taken lessons from Bin Laden. As for the man not wearing his ring that is a non issue. I don't wear my ring because I am allergic so am I a cheater too? I bet most men who cheat wear their ring to try to hide the fact.

What I would love to know is why the media isn't reporting that Jon has a bodyguard not too. Kate got blasted for having one, why not Jon?

PLEASE stop giving this loser a platform. By the paps following him around you are feeding his sick ego. He is an idiot and a nobody so don't give him any more airtime. Cut him out and watch how fast he will change his ways. I just cannot stand him. Kate may be bossy but it is obvious now what she was dealing with all thee years...her 9th child.

Jon has to replace all of the money he took from the family's account. It wouldn't matter if Kate had a billion dollars invested somewhere - that particular account wasn't to be touched as per a court arbitrator. Kate wrote all checks to cover family expenses from their everyday account - if she overdrew that account the bank was authorized to take funds from the savings account. When Jon withdrew all the funds from the savings account, the bank notified Kate and that's when this started.
The allocation of any other money from all other investments and accounts would have been divided up as part of the divorce. For those who say that Jon was just taking what was owing to him - that wasn't the way he should have taken it. He would have received his fair share if he had waited. Now he has to come up with a whole lot of funds quickly.

Pat, Kate has told Meredith on the Today show on August 10 that when it's her turn to leave the house, she goes into hiding from the paps. I wonder why?

OMG it was killing him to not talk, he was acting like a child in time-out.....it was painful for him to keep his ugly trap shut. I'm sure he will tweet about something soon. This guy is a loser and I wish they had a judge who wasn't going through the loss of his wife because Jon would of went down. Jon go hide under a rock and stay put please!!!! I hear he has tweet follower girls that are in hopes to take his money. He is such a special ed loser.

I saw a video yesterday of Jon talking about his relationship with Hailey, etc. He was saying that everyone is making these assumptions that they know him and are believing all the hype surrounding him.
Ok...LISTEN UP LITTLE ASIAN MAN:
No, we don't know you personally, that is true. But here is what we know for sure:
1) You are seeing a young woman while you are still married, which means you are an adulterer. Don't give me this crap about "well I am separated" that is bull....adultery is adultery. You are still married bucko.
2) You bought an apt in New York that doesn't have room for your children to come see you.
3) You are smoking. Taking the chance that you will get cancer and leave your 8 children fatherless.
4) You have been shown drinking and partying, which sets very bad examples for your children.

Do I have that about right???? So, let's see.....these are facts, we can see with our own eyes which also spells out a very selfish self-absorbed man who is thinking with his tiny tallywacker and nothing else. Which also tells the public you have very loose morals. Have I covered everything butt munch????

Jon and Kate both need to grow up and stop running to the media every 5 seconds. They are both media whores. The only people they are hurting is the kids. Remember them? You know-those little people that made all the money for them. I hope someone is there for the kids as apparently the parents don't care how much all of this affecting them. They are both selfish and they both need to just get out of the public eye and deal with their issues in private. Their 15 minutes of "fame" was over long ago. They are both to blame for everything. One is no better than the other.

If the money in that account was the money from TLC, then that was both of their money and Jon had a right to get money from that account.

TLC doesn't pay them a paycheck, they deposit their pay into that account. It's direct deposit. I hope people on here know what direct deposit is. It's your paycheck going straight to an account. TLC should be giving both Jon and Kate a check stub, showing how much money each made that certain pay period.

In Kate's court papers, she stated that her expenses are included in that money. So, why isn't Jon's expenses included in that money?

If Kate can use the money to buy herself a vehicle, get her hair done, manicures and pedicures, tans, buy clothes, shoes, etc. then Jon should be able to do the same thing.

Kate is not broke. Doesn't she realize a lawyer fee is classified as a bill?

She has to account for money she has taken as well.
