Kate Gosselin -- 'Clearly Pleased' to Get $$$ Back

10/26/2009 1:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin Kate Gosselin's lawyer just released a statement regarding the judge's decision this morning to force Jon to hand over the cash he ripped out of the couple's joint bank account a few weeks ago:

"We are clearly pleased that the monies taken by Mr. Gosselin have been returned to the marital account, and we look forward to recouping additional monies taken by Mr. Gosselin at the time of the parties' private arbitration hearings.

A total of at least $235,000 was taken by Mr. Gosselin, and despite his initial comments denying responsibility, we have established that Ms. Gosselin needed emergency relief to prevent her economic claims from being compromised.
"

Kate was not at court in Pennsylvania for today's proceedings -- her lawyer explained that she was not required to be there in person ... she was only required to provide a "complete accounting of funds" ... which she did.

Yay for Kate. Jon is such a liar loser. Why should she be in court?
Jon took the money. She does not need to physically see him. If she does want to look at him she could go to TMZ.

Holy Cow! I am amazed how many folks think this is just hunky dory! Are you kidding me! Jon is an opportunistic CREEP! You can bet this was done for BIG BUCKS! And Kevin and Jodie are not far behind Jon! Wonder WHAT they got paid for this magnificant reunion and of course they get to sell their story of the reunion as well as Jon. Watch Entertainment Tonight this evening...it will feature Mary Hart gushing over this lovely family reunion accompanied by all the photos that Jon made darn sure every kid was outside to participate in...not to mention, he let some of the kids go to the fences to be photographed! WHAT a Sham! He is the one causing all the psychological damage to those kids...he is the one who is confusing them...he is the one manipulating the press and PAPS who are all PAYING HIM!
BTW....WONDER HOW MANY OF YOU UNDERSTOOD THE MONEY WAS NOT IN THE BANK...HENCE JON HAD TO SHOW UP IN COURT. THE JUDGE GAVE HIM UNTIL THIS EVENING TO GET IT INTO AN ESCROW ACCOUNT!

"and we look forward to recouping additional monies taken by Mr. Gosselin at the time of the parties' private arbitration hearings"
Mr. Momjian, Kate's Divorce Attorney.

This was released AFTER Mr. Heller and Jon appeared on the steps of the courthouse today. Mr. Heller and Jon both seemed to be caught making some really illogical and unfounded claims,didn't they? They sure didn't seem contrite imo. I continue to marvel why Jon doesn't understand Kate's PA attorneys CANNOT negotiate with him so long as he has someone who is not legally able to represent someone in PA in the mix. Is Jon doing this on purpose to buy time? Sabotage Kate? Or is he just being delusional? With Mr. Heller in the picture, Jon forced Mr. Meyer to extract himself from the case - Did Mr. Heller really claim today that Mr. Meyer left the case because Mr. Meyer had "problems going up against someone with eight children"? I hope TMZ will get hold of that portion of the interview.

I wonder what OTHER monies Mr. Momjian could be referring??? The arbitration goes back to June,right? Seems when Mr. Momjian opens his mouth he has the records to back up what he is saying, a far cry from what Mr. Heller has created for Jon! I wish the Judge today had helped Jon by muzzling Mr. Heller. I don't know how Jon will get any reputable attorney in PA to rep him so long as Mr. Heller keeps talking. Of course, the more he talks, the more ammo Kate's attorneys (and TLC) attorneys have,don't they?

Lay off Kate! John took a heck of a lot mroe money and she complied with court....and they are John's kids too so what up with the mother hubbard comment. Lame? He's Father Hubbard? He has NO job. She works. Give her a break. You don't see him make dinner, do laundry, AND work. Team Kate!

I really don't understand why every move Jon makes and every penny he spends is under a continual microscope and he suddenly doesn't seem entitled to a dime of all the money I thought they basically split since they BOTH did the show and are BOTH the parents whereas Kate seems to get everything her greedy little heart desires, all she has to do is whine loudly and stamp her big feet and she gets her greedy selfish way. I know I am generalizing but it does seems extremely one-sided in Kate's favour all the time. Why is that?

Grandma of Four: That is absolutely CRAP!! --That Jon is to blame for confusing the kids and psychologically harming them?? Kate has been caught ON CAMERA physically beating these poor kids!!
So give me a break!! Jon is being blamed for far too much while this phony greedy BITCH gets away with holy bloody murder!! Yes, Jon does talk too much but at least he's honest while Kate lies her ass off constantly.

Kate is the brains, she earned the money all he did was sit there like a JackAss-A Duhhh,I'm their father. Then he shows up at court with his freak child girlfriend (is she 12?), with her tight leather pants and a short jacket-Does she even know that for court there is proper attire required???? In PA the mom don't have to work if you have children under 5 yrs old-so far she's providing 100% of the income. He prooved he's not a man by trying to get a mother of 8 to explain where $33,000 went just so him and his child girlfriend could appear on TV while wearing clothes paid for by pimping the kids so he's a juvenille,his lawyer sucks, his girlfriend is a child-and he's an absent father-I hated him all along-he's such a tart no wonder she corrected him,nagged him-did any one see what he used to do on that show????? He is challenged.
