Jon Gosselin -- The Check's in the Mail

10/23/2009 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned at 1:23 PM ET -- 30 minutes ago from the time of this post -- Kate Gosselin's lawyers received an email from Jon Gosselin's Pennsylvania lawyer stating that he has $152,000 from Jon that will repay Kate for the money he looted from the joint account.



As we first reported, the judge in the case ordered Jon to repay $180,000 -- Jon has already repaid $28,000 so the balance is $152,000.

Under the terms of the judge's order, Jon is required to wire the money to Kate's lawyers. That has not been done yet.

Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, tells TMZ if he gets the money today he'll cancel the court hearing on Monday.

There's another $55,000 in dispute. Jon says Kate had no right to take the money. Kate says she spent it on household matters. The arbitrator will decide who's right at a later date.

It amazes me how a topic can be about Jon and it turns out to be a Kate hatefest. This topic is clearly about Jon taking all that money and yet it's somehow Kate's fault. Say what you want about Kate, she is abiding by the TLC contract and has not spoken publicly about this situation. Neither has her legal team. Jon and his team on the other hand will take any opportunity to speak out which breaches his contract with TLC. Jon looks desperate. Dude should learn to read his contract before he or his team makes any moves.

LOOTED from a JOINT ACCOUNT. That does not seem possible.

I second Harriet and Kate's comments. He should sue for emotional abuse. What was shown on the show I'm sure was just the tip of the iceberg. She was just plain nasty to him, and now she's taking it out on the kids. If they don't do exactly what she wants when she wants, there's hell to pay. I feel sorry for the kids. The wording in the article should be changed though, it says that Jon is repaying KATE the money. He's repaying the money to the ACCOUNT. She needs to itemize all of her "household expenses", because yes, having 8 kids is expensive, but $55,000? Give me a break. Rent, electric, car payment, gas, food, no, us "regular folk" pay nowhere near that - oh yeah, I forgot - because we WORK for a living and don't take things for granted. Silly me.

Jon never does listen to anyone, not even the Judge. Leave it to him (or his attorney) to tell the world that he is repaying the money HE STOLE from his wife and kids. What goes around comes around, Jon. How long do you think the 22 year old chick will stick around once all the money is gone???? Poor guy never developed much of his brain.

According to Radar, Kate's lawyer says Jon has NOT paid anything back. Will the lies ever end?

Kate's an Abuser!    

If anyone bothered to read the story, you would have noticed that the statement was released by KATE'S ATTORNEY, not Jon's.

I SAID IT BEFORE AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN, "Jon and Kate have demonstrated, repeatedly, they are two very low-class people who just happened to strike it, RICH." One, is no better than the, other. Poor things, what will they do when publicity runs out? Guess they will have to really WORK to take care of their children and count pennies to pay the bills. The most disgusting couple in our country!!! It has not even occurred to them to GO AWAY AND STAY AWAY. Boring! Boring! Boring!

HEY JON, THE JIG IS UP. PAY UP LOSER. AFTER THAT, YOU CAN MAKE UP YOUR NEXT SET OF LIES. KATE MAY HAVE A BIG MOUTH, BUT YOU ARE THE THIEF. IT'S EASY TO DEAL WITH A BIG MOUTH, BUT A THIEF IS ANOTHER MATTER. BET YOU KATE CAN UP WITH THE PROOF OF HOW THE $55,000 WAS SPENT. SHE COMES ACROSS AS VERY ORGANIZED, WHICH YOU ARE NOT.

Kate always has a reason for everything she does BUT no one else is allowed. I hope she is in comtempt of court to straighten her ass out in thinking she is so sacred and could do no wrong & thinks everyone will always be on her side. Grow-up Kate!! your no example of a mother doing this all in front of your kids. Jon also needs to grow-up BUT he is entitled to half of that money from that show. Kate just wants to keep those kids near her because they are her cash cow's without them she is a big fat zero!! with no talent of her own!!

The story states that Kate's lawyers received an EMAIL saying that Jon's lawyers have the money. Jon's lawyers have yet to fork it over to Kate's lawyers. All Kate's lawyers have is an email. I'll believe it when Kate's lawyers have the money in their hands.

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

Jon is a CHRONIC LIAR!

Dude has no talent.
Dude has no credibility.
Dude has no sensitivity for his kids or their family privacy.
Dude has no balls, he is a whiny baby blaming Kate for everything.

Dude intentionally tries to humiliate and sabotage Kate, all in the name of revenge and the hate consuming him, that he pulls his children into. He has no respect for his family or he would zip it, his pants and his mouth!
