Jon Gosselin -- Backed Into a Corner

12/18/2009 1:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin is in immediate financial trouble now that his divorce from Kate Gosselin is final ... because he got nailed with huge child support payments and has no real way of paying ... sources tell TMZ.

We've learned under the arbitrator's award, Jon must make huge child support payments -- we're told 5 figures a month. And here's the problem. TLC has now shut down Jon's ability to take outside jobs. The irony -- he did himself in.

We've also learned Jon was charged every penny of the $235,000 that he withdrew from their joint account. That amount was deducted from his piece of the settlement.

As for Jon's claim that Kate should be docked for money she withdrew ... we've learned Jon struck out. The arbitrator determined every penny she withdrew was for the benefit of the kids.

Under the terms of the divorce decree, Kate has primary custody and Jon gets visitation -- both Jon and Kate agreed to that in advance. And, they agreed, neither party would get spousal support.

Score a big one for Mark Momjian, Kate's lawyer.

If Jon can now only work for TLC and he has huge child support payments owing, do you think that Jon now has to agree to the taping of the show again?

Does he have other options with TLC?

Wow. I would advice him to work at McDonald's but they don't pay anywhere near enough for his child support and living expenses.

Makes my broke life seem so much sweeter.

Good, maybe we won't have to read about this douche anymore. The wife has always been photographed with the kids, doing her motherly duties, while this guy was out trying to live the high-life. I am glad someone forced some responsibility on him.

He has only himself to blame. Spending money on that skank, Hailey Glassman, flying around to Europe, making an ass of himself.

He signed a contract with TLC - he broke it, it's the law, he's a loser.

Tiger Woods is praying this story keeps making headlines for a week so the spotlight will come off him

Ha ha ha that's what he gets. Maybe he should try to get a real job like everybody else.

Yeah, I said it    

Serves him right for abandoning his wife to raise 8 kids all by herself so he can jet-set the world & having delusions that he's a REAL celebrity! What was he thinking when he wouldn't let TLC continue with the show which was his bread and butter from the beginning? Was he scared that Kate would become more popular than him? If he had a brain he would've let the show go on & she might've been a little more lenient on the child support. Talk about cutting your nose off to spite your face!
