Jon & Kate

Plus DIVORCED

12/18/2009 12:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... It's official -- Jon & Kate Gosselin are divorced.

Jon & Kate
Judge Arthur Tilson
has signed the final papers, making Jon and Kate officially single.

Mark Momjian
, Kate's lawyer, tells TMZ, under the agreement, "Our client will continue to reside with all eight of her children in the former marital home."

As for Kate, she says, "I am very relieved that our divorce has been finalized, and I look forward to the New Year, focusing on our children." Kate calls the divorce "challenging," and says she will now focus on "restructuring our lives."

A rep for Jon tells us, "While the arbitration proceedings are still a work in progress, Jon and Kate will remain binded in their commitment to their eight wonderful children. Jon is confident that he and Kate will be able to move forward in a fashion that will be in the best interest of the Gosselin family."

As for who got what, Momjian simply says, "We are very pleased with the final outcome."

Judge Tilson inked the docs after the arbitrator came down with his ruling on how Jon and Kate's property will be divided.

Kate should have also stated, she also focusing on her acting career and getting the show back or having her own show. Her motivation for next year, "how to profit off her kid's and sell their soul to the highest bidder"!

Quote: "Why do you people wish bad on Kate. I mean she is a wonderfull mom who has had to deal with a man who paraded women all over the country, shot a gun at his house, taken his children to a fence to meet with paps, rode his children on a atv without a helmet, I could go on and on. I personally commend Kate for making sure that the childrens father doesnt ruin his childrens financial and mental future. I guess some are just jealous of this very attractive woman who will succeed in life."

Really? You mean after they were practically separated? Uhh ok.

Shot a "Firearm" not a "Gun" at his house. Again, uhh ok? Where do you expect him to fire it? Only at an expensive indoor shooting range? Read the second amendment you dumb bitch.

Boo Hoo his kids were going at Golf Cart like speed on an ATV? Could you really be more retarded? I think not.

As for Kate, nothing attractive about that reversed mohawk she sports, or the un-naturally high belly button that doctor slapped on her, or her gigantic fake melons, or her obscenely straight man like figure.

Please, join Satan for a BBQ & STFU.

Kate never treated Jon like a man, husband and father. She was constantly scolding him like a child so its no wonder he rebelled like a teenage boy. Her excuse- I had a meltdown so its ok I screamed at him. Most of the time, he was yelled at and berated for trying to help out with the kids and the home. Jon never stood a chance. It didn't help his cause acting like a jerk but then again nobody seemed to care if Kate was a total bitch. She has been portrayed as a saintly mother doing all by herself for the sake of the kids. When its all said and done she did it for herself, loved seeing herself on a magazine, loved the spotlight. I hope both of them will just fade away.

susanne and Jebus, you both said it all so well.

Did you know that Roosterhead is setting up yet another show to further exploit the children? She's a rude, crude, greedy, castrating fame whore who uses her kids to make money. It's child abuse! I am honestly surprised Jon could stomach her for as long as he did. He deserves a medal.

It's impossible not to notice how much happier he is away from her. The kids will be like that, too, once they also finally escape that shrew.

TLC has a LOT to answer for! They bankrolled her exploitation of the kids, and lied every time they edited and re-edited their film to show a happy (profitable) family life and marriage. Thanks, TLC, for making such fools of us. I'm sure there's some preening in your board room over how long you jobbed us and the children. (Hey! How about one of YOU marrying Roosterhead next?)

Bah on TLC and Roosterhead.

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

My deepest and heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the GWOPdolts and big butted Kate Hater Bloggers.

I mourn for you, the loss of the years you spent day in and day out, all of the energy you exhausted with your hate, blog entry after blog entry. As together you tried to bring this mother of 8 down with your consumed and obsessed hatred and insanity. I mourn for your own kids and spouses, the times you robbed them, the finances you did not help to support, and the loss of job you could have had to help provide for your loved ones. Nope, Mommy had to go to work blogging her hate on a computer at a Mom, all the while pretending to be a child advocate.

You all thought you could sabotage Kate Gosselin and bring her down. You thought you could help take her show away all the while shouting out child exploitation (which not a one of you truly know about child exploitation, if you did you would go help the children being sold as sex slaves in exchange for a bag of rice for their family to eat every night, or the sweat shops children are forced to work at under unbearable conditions and with little to no pay if they ever see it at all).

I mourn for you the time you robbed from your own family that you wasted to spend hating on a mother of 8. You snarked about her hair, her nails, the fun opportunities and trips the kids got to go on. You snarked about the beautiful house the kids got to play in, swim in, and have to grow up in and how they should squeeze back into a tiny three bedroom instead (yep, child advocacy), you snarked and hated on their Mom because you, as parents could not relate to her. She no longer wore fat pants, no makeup and sloppy shoes. She took care of her children, their health and happiness, her health, her happiness and teaches the kids it is okay to love herself too and care for her appearance, her health and fitness and role modeled just that. It is okay to love yourself and take care of you too, and balance that with nurturing your children and having their best interests at heart.

You Khaters and GWOPpers (so called child advocates) would even post the addresses of her speaking engagements (Kate bringing in income for her kids), to try to get them canceled. That too backfired and only made you all look spiteful, hateful and harassers. Some of you crazies even tried to contact the Judge and then blog about it to try to sabotage her in the divorce.

It is YOU who lost. It is you that you robbed and your families that you robbed of precious moments spent playing with your own kids, all so you could get your hate Kate fix in daily blogging.

It is YOU who needs the psychological help that you kept saying Kate needed.

It is YOU who sabotaged YOU and your families.

It is YOU who could have got a job, off your butt and out of your obsession with hating Kate and made extra college money for your own children or money to spend on vacations that YOU could have treated your children to.

It is YOU who have been described as MOST INSANE in the Vanity Fair magazine.

It is YOU who will still watch Kate's new show so you can continue your obsessed hatred of her and continue your hate Kate blogging so that you feel better about yourselves every day.

It is YOU who will continue to help make Kate successful, so keep hating her!

I laugh at all of you, you thought you could bring Kate down, it is you that looks the losers. It is you who sabotaged yourselves and your families while thinking you had power and could hate Kate away and sabotage her.

You keep idolizing the real idiot who exploited his kids on custody days with lining up photo ops to get paid to support his playboy lifestyle and paying his doltbot lawyers that are just as much losers as he is. Keep idolizing the guy who trash talked his twins on TV on TI, trash talked the mother of his kids, who breached his contract, who dressed and acted like a teen in heat, who still has mantrums, who feels so entitled that he should not have to pay his legal team now, just wait, you will support him and make up excuses when he does not pay his child support next as well.

But remember, you all are such stellar child advocates. ROFLMAO!

You all are jokes, you just cannot see how ridiculous you GWOPdolts and Khaters look and have been.

Obsessions are a type of addictions and your hating on Kate has become your heroin, it gives you that feel good feeling.

Time you HATERS get help for hating Kate addiction, so you can start being better parents and not teaching your kids to hate like you all do. Head doctors could help you with cognitive therapy skills, to teach and train you to turn off your TV's when her show comes on, to use your mouse to not go to sites to read about her, etc.

Healthy people avoid that which they don't like, but you all run from site to site about her just so you can hate on her.

You might

Are you kidding me? Poster # 46 is OBVIOUSLY Kate herself. I am not a "hater of Kate"because you claim she is pretty,thin and famous-she is a VILE woman.You claim "we" spend sooooo much time hating her-but YOU have posted the longest RANT I've ever seen here!!!!! "WE" need to get a life? NO. YOU need to get a life. Both of them are D-BAGS!Those poor kids are going to be effed-up for life.Kate is a control freak,and Jon acts like he's 13!!!!HOW DARE YOU! Saying we are bad parents for calling out both of them on THEIR parenting! YOU NEED MEDS!You are crazy. FYI- I have two children,one of whom is autistic,and they are happy,taken care of and LOVED. Kate's kids are a pay-check. How do you sleep at night?BTW-how many kids do you have? If any,I feel sorry for them.

I feel sorry for Jon, he was harassed and tormented. She drove him away.... to other women. Rather be poor Jon than have to live with that women, forever....count your blessings...
No one could live the rest of their lives, with that daily abuse...from that bitch!
The kids love their Dad. All they have to do in the future, is watch reruns of that show and then they will see for themselves the hell she put him through...little miss perfection for everyone, but herself. She seemed even heartless to her children at times, because things were not done, her way.

Why blame kate? she's not the one who had the affair. If jon was'nt happy, he should have got the divorce first then found someone, and I bet had he not had the affair, he and kate would not have gotten a divorce. but then again who knows? just my opinion.

Congratulations Jon! I stopped watching the show after your wife belittled you one too many times. I know it is not easy to do what you did. I was a child of divorce and although kids do not understand when they are young, it is not too hard to think back and figure out as an adult that there are many types of abuse, it does not have to be physical. As for any monies you receive I believe you are entitled to every penny for the abuse you endured.
