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."

One (or both) of them is not the biological parent. It is impossible for two blue eyes to have a brown eyed child. All the kids have brown eyes.

I guess he is finally starting to realize that in the "real" world, people actually have to work a "real" job to survive. Now that no one is interested in him anymore, he is going after the mother of his 8 kids to give him money... Get a fricken job you lazy moron. What have you done lately that makes you a good father. All you did was cut off your nose to spite you face and now your broke. You should've just kept your mouth shut and you could still be living off your kids!! Hmmmm.... grow up...its time.

WOW, can Jon get anymore pathetic. He has no right to say that Kate doesn't spend enough time with the kids because HE DOESN'T SPEND ANYTIME with his children. Hasn't he been out West somewhere living with his now ex-girlfriend? So he doesn't have the right to claim primary custody. In my opinion, he is a lazy ass douche bag that is broke and this is the only way he can get money is to TRY and get custody of the kids, which I do not see would happen, to gain spousal support (which he most likely WON'T spend on the children). Kate is trying to provide for her kids, and if DWTS is the way she does it, so be it. I don't see Jon doing anything productive in trying to provide for his kids. The guy is a loser and any judge would be out of their mind granting him full custody of the children. JON IS A LOSERRRR!
