Jon Gosselin Goes After Kate in Court

4/6/2010 3:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin thinks "Dancing with the Stars" is damaging his kids, thanks to Kate Gosselin, and Jon now wants primary custody as well as spousal support from his ex ... TMZ has learned.

Jon's new lawyer, former assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony F. List, tells TMZ he's going to court to ask for primary physical custody. List calls Kate, "an absentee mom," which he says is no surprise to anyone.

List expects to use "DWTS" as evidence that Kate does not spend "quality time with the 8 kids."

List also thinks Jon is getting screwed in the child support department, claiming "$20,000 a month is ridiculous."

In addition to primary custody, List says he's considering asking the judge to reverse the support obligation and make Kate pay Jon. He did not specify the amount.

Kate tells TMZ, "I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom I will do everything necessary to provide for my kids despite the opinions of others."

I just had a great thought. You know what's going to be GREAT???! And Kate I hope you are READING!!! Once this DWTS is over the truth will come out about what a TRULY ROTTEN, PHONEY human being you ARE! You are a mother selling out your children. Everyone is keeping HUSH HUSH right now for ratings because the masses watching are, like YOU angry, bitter, evil housewives which are keeping the ratings up. BUT once is the show is over...SO ARE YOU and it's about time!!!!! They cast will spill the beans on you and your crappy self.

GO PAM and I am so sorry you are taking the RAP for these evil green eyed bitter monsters!

Hopefully Kate will be voted off DWS tonight because she is so bad. Good try though. Jon is pathetic. He is the one who left! He doesn't understand that Kate is his EX-wife. Move on Jon and show those kids the kind of father they thought you were not too long ago.

So, by the reasoning between him and his lawyer all working mothers should lose custody and if he gets custody he will stay home at all times. Never leaving the children with a sitter. Yeh, sure.

Both are pretty much absent. He is because all he wanted to chase was p***y and she is because all she wants to do is chase fame. But at least she is working and making $$. The kids are better off with her gone because at least they aren't getting yelled at all of the time like she did when they were on their show.

Maybe Jon can get a gig on with celebrity fit club. Oh that's right, he's not a celebrity............just a loser who used his kids to make money. (Kate did too)

It is not impossible for two blue eyed parents to have brown eyed children. The kids get the eye color from their grandparents... it skips a generation. So EVERYONE gets their eye color from a grandparent!

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

Ok, let me get this straight.

Jon cheated on his marriage with the daughter of the father who gave his ex-wife plastic surgery for a tummy tuck)

Jon stole money from his kids

Jon moved away from his kids, not just once, but twice.

Jon says he is too famous to get a regular job.

Jon lied multiple times in the media about Kate.

Jon lost to TLC and never ever had a chance at winning against them.

Jon breached his contract.

Jon thought he was a tough guy and thought he could bully TLC by removing his kids from being filmed, then lying about the exploitation bullcrap, when he was videoed prior stating his kids were not being exploited that they were filmed having fun and playing.

Jon stole from Hailey Glassman.

Several attorneys now have said that Jon owes them money.

Jon has no friends.

Jon has no house to provide for 8 kids much less 1.

Jon has no couch to sleep on.

Jon is just after money, he could careless about his kids, if he did, he'd not be doing this and draging them through yet another emotional ride.

Jon is selfish.

Jon is lazy.

Jon only thinks of what he wants.

Jon feels entitled.

Jon thinks women should support him.

Jon is a bully, therefore he is a coward.

Jon is no role model for a dad.

Jon has a tiny peen.

Jon's ex skanks all have TV shows in the future.

Jon has no TV show.

Jon has no book deal.

Jon is not wanted on any network by anyone.

Jon is not even wanted by Playgirl.

Jon has made several enemies.

Jon lies.

Jon manipulates.

Jon sabotages.

Jon skeems.

Jon sits on an atv when he has his kids.

Jon sets up photo ops in a grocery store and when he does have his kids, to make money off of his kids.

Jon is a sad, lonely, pathetic, manipulating, lying, scheming, cheating, stealing, loser.

Jon has no friends. Jon is a lost soul.

Jon did all of this to himself and to his kids, therefore Jon should never be given primary custody, nor will he be.

Jon will never get spousal support when there are 8 kids for his ex to support because their Dad is not doing anything to better his life or make money for his kids.


Kate is at least trying. Jon's case has no merit.

He will lose, like he loses at everything else he thinks he is entitled to.

Which is the better parent? Neither is a good parent!! Where's that choice? Being raised by nannies? I feel sorry for the kids. Too bad they have 2 irresponsible parents.

you know nothing, Kate has book deals, and a show on TLC in the future.

Sorry to burst your hate Kate bubble, but she is not going away, she has opportunities to make money for her kids.

Jon doesn't and now he thinks he is entitled to what she is making, when it only takes money away from the kids.

He will lose, no Judge will go along with his BS.

This is laughable. However, because it's also PA, bet me it goes all the way through custody evals to trial.

I read that she set up a studio in her home so Tony Dovolani had to come there for rehearsals. And oh gosh, he's such a stellar dad. Note to Mr. Thinking with the Wrong Head: You actually have to at least APPEAR to be a good father, spending lots of time with your kids, before you try for primary custody. I can't remember the last time you were with your kids without involving a girlfriend du jour.

Ultimately, both of them seem to suck as parents in different ways. But him trying for custody is nothing more than a ploy to avoid paying support and turn the support tables on her, because he's useless and can't make any money on his own. Judges see it all the time. Even Ed Hardy shirts look bad on him; so much for that.

What a LOSER Jon turned out to be. He's attacking Kate for being responsible and earning an income. Dancing with the Star will not last forever. Jon needs to get a job and pay his child suport like a good boy and keep his pants on and stop chasing these questionable woman all over the globe. At least Kate does spend time with the kids. When was the last time that loser Jon did?
