Kate Gosselin's Lean

Jon's Mean

4/6/2010 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin's lawyer says Jon Gosselin and his attorney are "mean-spirited" and "reckless" by suggesting she's become an absentee mom by appearing on "Dancing with the Stars."

Kate Gosselin's Lean, Jon's Mean
Mark Momjian is reacting to TMZ's story, that Jon and his lawyer, Anthony F. List, will file legal papers asking for primary physical custody of the couple's 8 kids as well as child support.

Momjian says Jon's move is, "downright offensive and outrageous," adding, "Kate has been the primary parent of these kids since they day they were born." Momjian says "DWTS" is not interfering with her ability to parent, and that "she is devoted to her children."

And this parting shot from Momjian: "I can't believe anyone would take their claim serious, but consider what we're dealing with."

Disgusted!!!!    

You know.....I don't really like either one of those 2, however, Jon needs to get a job and them buy a clue! It's no different than anyone else who works. what about those single parents who are serving our country? Would he consider those to be neglectful or deemed absentee. I wouldn't think so....
There is no way that Kate can make the kind of $$ needed to raise those kids by nursing. The only thing he wants is the alimony and child support he'd get if he hot the kids....Basically by trying to imitate K-fed and get the $$. (only k-fed proved himself a decent dad).

It's being reported that he pays $20,000 a month child support. He's getting a paycheck from somewhere.

Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

men who request spousal support with no attempt to even get a job, are cowards and lazy losers.

Jon is a sponge, always riding off of the coat tails of women.

It is bad enough it was announced he has a 2 inch peen, now to see this loser ask for spousal support? Shows he has NO balls, he is a whiny spineless loser who lashes out when rejected!

Jon is a recluse. He has no friends. No one can stand him. He does not care about what this does to his kids, he is just after some money and wants to be in the tabloids and headlines again.

Even his last desperate girlfriend booted his lazy butt out for mooching off of her parents and her friends.

He was the one who chose to live away from his kids in NY and in Utah. He chose the tramps over his kids.

He never took his kids on any of those vacations, he blows money like mad on vacations and lawyers, then wants spousal support?

Why? because Hailey wants the money she loaned him back from when he stole from his own kids and was forced to return it, and by then he'd already spent it with the rumor being he paid off some women in Vegas that he slept with to keep them quiet? Then begged Hailey for money so his kids would not have to see him go to jail?

He is a liar and a manipulator. A sneaky snake who cannot be trusted.

He breached his contract, no network will ever trust this loser.

He needs to get a job and be an example for his kids!!

Poor Kate, how did she even live with this jerk?

hahahaha!    

He's right, she kept him on a short leash and even gave him a hard time when he had the kids visiting but she can go off on this show and it's all fine and dandy? He's just giving back what she gives to him. What's good for the goose and all that... Plus you hear the participants talking about the hours they have to practice, and that's not counting the actual filming of the shows. Who's raising poor Kate's kids? .. oh yeah the Nannies, TLC where loser Mom's go to get paid.

I remember when Jon had a job and Kate made him quit so they could focus on the show. You people act like this man never tried to support his family or never cared for his children. When she was out promoting her dumb books, he was at home! He stayed home then, I don't see why he can't stay home with the children now. I think Kate is being rather silly. I know Jon has been a dick, but you have to remember how this crap started. She treated him like shit and he returned the favor. Despite his flaws, he's a good dad and he loves his kids. If she's not going to be home, he should be there! There is no reason for the children to be alone with a nanny when their Dad is capable and willing to take care of them!

Is he serious? He is the absolute worse role model for any kids. How can he raise 8 kids to be responsible citizens and strong adults when he is nothing but a hyped up walking hormone that will boink anything that gives him the time of day?

You know, you "TEAM KATE" members keep using examples that other actors/actresses have kids and THEY work. You are forgetting one important thing..THEY HAVE TALENT AND PEOPLE WANT TO SEE THEM ON TV!!!!! As for the question "should she go on welfare?" I say YEAH, GO AHEAD! Like she would EVER give up that extravagant life style to stay home with her kids and pinch pennies. Kate (and Jon, too) need to realize that popping out a bunch of kids is NOT a talent and they need to go away quietly. They have both had their 15 minutes of fame and it is time for BOTH of them to get real jobs.....they are educated people who have been living beyond their means for a very long time, all because they had multiple births, scientifically engineered mutiple births, by the way. Sounds pretty calculated to me. All so they could have a reality show and go on to be 'stars' while the kids are left with nannies. What a sad mess these two are! You gotta feel sorry for the way these kids are gonna turn out.....they never had a chance at 'normal'. Shame on them and shame on US for watching them, reading about them and for not boycotting anything they are on!!

This guy is such a douche bag. Its okay for him to chase teeny-bopper cooter all over the globe while Kate is raising his children, but let her go out and try to make some money to support her family, and he calls her an "absentee mom". Jealous you don't have the lime light? C'mon Jon, whats the matter, responsibility got you down?

Jon's rich girlfriend kicked him to the curb. He's also broke. That's what the lawsuit is really about. Isn't his 15 minutes of fame over??

My grandmother (and probably your grand and great-grandmothers) had lots of kids in few years. In my case, eleven in twelve years with nine surviving. On the farm in Kansas. And when she had a baby, she was downstairs that evening cooking for her family AND maybe twenty farm hands in summer. Never a complaint, and no one ever said she couldn't handle that family. She wanted an even dozen. My grandfather died at age 42 in a tragic farm equipment accident, and my grandmother continued on raising her kids, seven girls and two boys. No automatic washers, no shopping centers, all food came from the land. You know the story! I think Kate will do just fine, and her creepy husband should find some young bimbo to occupy his feeble mind.
