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 not afford child support payments then the judge is just going to set a court date and see how much Jon makes and according to how much he makes that will determine how much he will pay in child support.

In a way it is kind of unfair he is paying child support because TLC has got him ban from going on tv and doing interviews while Kate is free to go on galloping on every show and magazine she can get herself into.

Either way I am very sick of hearing of these two, Kate needs to stop going to tv crying she is a victim and that she is a single mom doing it all on her own when she is not. I got only one thing to say to Jon and Kate.. GET A JOB and take care of your kids, Your 15 minutes of fame have long since been up and I am very glad the kids are no longer on tv, there parents can no longer use them as cash cows

Even as a mother who would never give up her own child, the thought of having to raise those 8 entitled, unruly, screaming brats would send me running. Sometimes you have to know when to cut your losses and this is one time for Jon.

Kate faces a lonely life ahead of her. No man will want to take on that talentless, surgically-built shrew and her brood of 8. Face it K, you got your big mansion and all the loneliness money can buy until, of course, it runs out.

No one wants to see you in a new show. You have no personality, lack humor and you won't be working for long. Good thing you renewed your nursing license.

Even if TLC gifted the house to Kate, she will have trouble maintaining it. There are a lot of expenses like when it snows, there have to be people plowing the road so that she can get out and get the kids to school, the acreage needs mowing and landscape services, the pool needs professional maintenance. K can't clean that house all by herself, do laundry for 9, cook and still go out on the road to work. She needs a staff of dependable child care/household people. There is insurance, electric, gas, water, taxes, etc. She needs an accountant, PR person. She has her hair, nails, toenails, massages, and don't forget COFFEE! Don't forget the kids's school tuition is now $7500 a month and it goes up as the children get older. She has vehicles to maintain.

Probably K's biggest problem is there will be no relief from childcare. If her workers are sick and she has to go to work, what does she do?

K and TLC has seen to it that J is broke so she won't be able to count on his support payments. No job = No salary. Kate you are getting everything you deserve.

If her show bombs, and it will, she will lose the goodwill of TLC and I hope that she has an emergency fund to tide her over until her first paycheck as a nurse comes through.

I would say that Jon won because he does not have to put up with Kate any longer. Who would want to be married to control freak like her. The times that I watched the show she was on his case every minute. So what if he doesn't have all the riches, riches mean nothing if you have a bad relationship.

someone commented on Jon's look in the top picture, well, the one next to it of kate is even worse. She looks like an ugly guy that needs a shave. They need to be so gone from the public eye. The whole divorce, settlement, custody, whatever is such a farce. Kate can tap dance around every obstacle and her statements are taken as truth, hook,line and sTinker! This whole deal is such a farce, it is all as phony as kate has been all along.
