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.

Yo J.D, are you stupid or just related to Jon? Kate is already supporting the kids, you moron! Whoever heard of the custodial parent having to pay child support too?!AND haven't you been paying attention? The kids have their own accounts and Jon stole the money they had in the joint account and now has been court ordered to pay the entire amount back!Why don't you try saving the intelligent comments for the rest of us and you go back to your gameboy, loser!

Some of you posters have the foulest mouths I've ever heard. Why can't you just comment like a decent adult without all the name calling. Nobody really won in this mess.If TLC won't allow Jon to take any outside jobs how does the court expect him to pay child support.From the time this mess started Kate was allowed to go on talk shows , do book signings,etc. They would not allow Jon to do anything.Both of them made a lot of mistakes. Kate was overbearing and demeaning and he reacted in a foolish way.Now that he's ridding himself of the leaches(Hailey Glassman) being leach #1, he has to move back to PA and become the old Jon.What kind of a lousy lawyer did he have?The court has to allow him to make money to support his kids.Remember if he goes down it will affect his kids in the worst way.He started out as a good Father and Husband.I wish him well for his sake and for the sake of the kids!

So, Jon Gosselin who destroyed the income his family was receiving through his own stupidity will now have to cough up his fair share to support the children he abandoned. Looks good on him. I hope Kate drags his sorry butt back to court every time he misses a payment. Now, he'll actually have to do something productive to earn an income instead of riding on the coattails of his family.

The idiot had it made and was too stupid to see it. Now, let him pay up!!!

no more kate gosselin    

hey all you kate supporters. kate likes to play the victim & poor me, poor me i have to support 8 children that i can not support without being a celebrity now. well let me ask you this? how come she could afford all those ivf treatments when they are around $9900 a shot? why is it she continues to lead the american public to believe jon doesn't pay child support? well i have news for you her compliant for child support files on 10/6/09 was withdrawn in montgomery county on 10/26/09. therefore, jon is not obligated to pay support. but it is definately more profitable to lead everyone to believe he doesn't pay. what's with her comment "he's there when he's there" does she not realize by her crying the blues to all the tv shows out there, getting her hair done and all the other stuff she does away from her kids people could say the same about her "she's there when she's there".
jon & kate could of been so successful together if they weren't so greedy. what does the roloff's (little people big world), the little couple, & the dugger's have in common with jon & kate?.......nothing b/c they all still have their before we had our own reality show jobs. jon & kate quit their jobs b/c they thought the show was their job. realy???? these 2 are jokes, kate makes herself look like a moron. america....enough stop giving this women the attention she certainly doesn't deserve, force her to go back to an untelevised reality and become the mom she "supposedly" wanted to be. spend time with your kids kate don't leave the parenting to the nannies. there are plenty of people out there who have 8 or more kids supporting them theirselves and not relying on american pity.
