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.

Five figures a month?!?! Ouch.
Looks like someone's gonna have to sell his tacky t-shirt collection.
That should be worth a few bucks on eBay...(or not).

Jon signed a contract with TLC. He did not abide by the terms of the contract he signed. He could be sitting on his fat behind making money for doing nothing, but he decided to try to strong arm TLC and failed. He's in the position he's in because he's bull-headed. He's getting what he deserves.

The bottom line is, men don't get married (women are gold-diggers and vicious) or you'll be screwed for life and don't have kids. Government should manufacture kids, that's probably where we're heading to.

Who won you ask in your post. Not the petitioner or respondent in a divorce family law legal case. The only money winner(s) in a divorce is / are the lawyer(s). (Please add more radio button choices to your web postings TMZ - Thanks!!!!)

Kate is a bigger slimeball than Jon. I see her EVERY day on TV, and she's never with the kids. Why doesn't anyone point this out? She has a ton of nannies raising the kids, and her only involvement is when TLC cameras are there. Otherwise she's on publicity junkets to promote her terrible parenting books or guest hosting the view or going on Jay Leno, or doing anything other than being with the kids.

Why would you brag about such an ignorant "AUNTIE?"
What's wrong with you?

It will be interesting to see what (show, book etc.) Kate is promoting on Jay Leno tonight. I hope he is not having her on "just because." Jon gets pounded in the divorce and his ex is on Leno. I bet he is green with envy.

You'd be better advised looking for a good lawyer for your "aunt" in the unlikely event that you're not making this up. Bribing a judge is a serious crime.

Karma is a, actually Karma is a level headed genius.
That family had NO tabloid problems until Jon acted like an ass....then bit the hand that fed him (and his whole family) in a teen inspired temper tantrum.
Let him finally act like a man, stop humiliating his family, let Kate carry on with TLC to be with the kids and support them. He should use all of his contacts, start up an IT company (with another person as the front man) and put a life together. His excuse that he is too famous is just too DELUSIONAL.
He needs to step up in this manner to save face with his kids. If not they will grow up seeing him as a loser who does nothing but whine and complain how everyone else is to blame for his personal down fall. The girls will marry losers the boys will become losers. The only hope they have is Kate, thank GOD for Kate!!! Come on Jon, give it an shot, maybe buy a book called "Manhood for Dummies"

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

betsey, actually no Kate does not have to make payments on the house, although you would love to see her struggle to have to.

Did you not read how it was gifted to her by TLC? Go check it out! She got the house!!!!

She got the show, and she and her 8 kids are going to do just fine, she does not need your backhanded snarky good luck wish, you don't wish her well.

Sorry all of your years spent hating on a blog were in vain, but you nor Jon sabotaged her, she came out even stronger from it all and will succeed with or without you. Although you hate her so much and are obsessed with hating her, you will tune in and continue blogging about what you hate about her.

Fact is, you will be one of the VIEWERS, and she appreciates that! teehee.

IN YOUR FACE YOU GWOPdolts and Kate Haters!

You all are as poor as Jon, had you put all the time you spent blogging about hating on her and got yourself a job, think of the money you would have for your own children, their education or your retirement, instead you wasted years of your life away hating on a Mom, and for what purpose? You all thought you could sabotage her speaking engagements and ruin her.

You only robbed yourself and your family of time and money you now cannot get back, and wasted chunks of your life being jealous, hateful and spiteful while claiming you were child advocates (real ones never hate on a parent or snark about when a parent gets their nails done or bought a new pair of shoes).

Your MOST INSANE behavior sabotaged yourselves, not Kate.
