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.

uh?    

NTVLand....Did you garner all that information by talks with Kate? You must be extremely intimate with her. Or could it be you've never even met her? That all your "information" came from reading rags like this one? Interesting, you read "comic book" news, then form such grandiose opinions based on said content. I bet you almost made it through high school.

Old Enough    

A better question would have been "Who lost?" The answer to that one is simply. The KIDS!

It is the kids that lost. The "realist reality" show is yet to happen for Jon and Kate Gosselin. Jon will be the first to find out, but in the end...so will Kate and THE CHILDREN. Jon will most likely be able to get the child support lowered because he cannot get a job that he had before, especially with TLC blocking the way...AND BECAUSE HE CANNOT, he is foolish to think otherwise. Good luck to Kate and her new show, let her succeed or fail on her own...she is "CAN DO" Kate, TLC and she think that she has the talent for a talk show.food show format so let her succeed. She got the house, now she has to make the payments on that house. (That has made many a divorce mom downsize.) Just sayin', here in the real world.
Jon will probably declare bankruptcy before it is all said and done. Must be a weird deal where you pimped yourself and family out on a reality show, from an 'IT' salary. Where do you go from there when the offers dry up? Reality.

Simone - the real one    

Boss Lady - it was KATE who ended the marriage. Get your facts straight please. It's KATE who is trying to hard to be a start on tv and is failing miserably - she's no talent whatsoever and can't hold a show on her own!

Freaking delusional people...

Is this too difficult for some of you? Jon broke his contract. A judge issued an order that Jon not do any paid interviews talking about his sleezy life. TLC lawyer told the judge Jon has made no effort to find employment in any other field. Jon has already been paid for the contract. All he had to do was stop being on tv and giving interviews about TLC screwing him over. Simple enough? Heller gave him good advice to take the kids off tv. He was still being paid, for not being on. Well, he took everything away from the kids and Hailey is pimping out cheap events to support him. He got everything he and Heller were wanting. No Kate, no kids. Sing another song about the old lady who lives in a shoe Heller! Remember, TLC is afraid of Jon.

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

Jon, people are just not that into you.
You dug your hole, you got what you deserved.
Good Luck to Kate and her 8 children, may they go into 2010 with a more peaceful experience and less weight on their backs with their Daddy no longer sabotaging their Mommy or taking from his children.
Hope the self gratification and selfish antics were worth it to you Jon, it cost you everything you once had and the sucky thing is, you did not care enough about your kids to act in their best interest in everything.

As a Dad you had a responsibility to them and you failed!!!!!!!!!!

stella, Kate needs a bodyguard to protect her from people like you at the hate Kate blogs, the people who yesterday were Khaters posting on TMZ wishing Jon would use his gun to blow her head off! THAT IS WHY SHE HAS A BODYGUARD, your type of hatred is why.

So stick it up your wide load @ss stella, it is to protect her from UNSTABLE people like you and the GWOPdolts and hate Kate blog owners and bloggers.

91. Courts are horribly biased against fathers no matter where you are, but ESPECIALLY in L.A. They should be sued for discrimination honestly, its ridiculous... women judges, clerks, balifs, etc... and they make men pay out the nose and make them fight for any time with their kids, but it doesn't matter who the mom is, the mom NEVER has to prove she's fit, etc. Why shouldn't parents automatically get 50/50 if they WANT it? Why do men have to earn it? Pay for it? Fight for it? WE NEED SOME REFORM in custody laws. RIDICULOUS. Jon is better off not having Kate around... but I hope he stays being an involved dad. She would've driven me crazy too.

Lulu,
You are either a man or married to a divorced man paying support. You need to get you facts straight. the majority of judges, clerks and balifs are men not woman. Also many, many woman are proven unfit...which Kate is not. Jon agreed to her having custody...he did not want it.

Jon has finally got his come-upance. His selfishness of wanting to live his life like he has no children has come up and bit him in the ass. He has acted like a fool in the public eye with partying all night, going out with a different girl every week and jet-setting around like he's some kind of play boy once to much. Kate has matured into a person who is willing work at supporting her children any way she knows how, where as for Jon, all he wants to do is party. Liked to see who's going to want to party with such a looser now who has no money. Way to go Kate!!!!!!
