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."

Kate....You can stand tall and proud. You have values that you are living by and passing on to your children as you are taking care of them. You are a good mother, do not listen to ANYONE who says you aren't. You have always done for your children as we mothers have done from the beginning of time and will continue doing until there are no more children.

We know that you are spending quality time with your children as you have always done. One thing we do not see you do is leave all the children in the house as someone we know did as he walked around the place talking on his cell for hours.

You are learning to dance and I think this is wonderful. No matter how far you go with this, you are still making sure that your children are taken care of as the other mothers of children have done when they are on. You hang in there, because we are all proud of you, Wanda

I watched Jon & Kate from the begining of their TLC show. I might not like Jon all that much, but Jon was the one who changed the kids clothes, bathed them, played with them and cared for them way more than Kate did. All Kate did was yell at Jon, yell at the kids and b*tch, b*tch...everything was always about Kate. After the show changed, it was only then that Kate seemed to be more caring and playing with the kids. It is hard with divorces when children are invloved and with eight, they both should be focusing on them.

They need to split custody, but Kate would never stand for that. She wants all the money she can get. I am so sick of her whining. She lives large and is one of millions of women that catch their husband cheating. Big deal.She does not have a clue what a hard life is.
They are both spoled brats using their kids for a paycheck.
I will vote for Kate on Dancing with the stars because she makes me laugh. She takes herself seriously while the rest of us are just watching the trainwreck.

Jon is a loser. Kate is the one that had to work and make some money to keep her kids up. She take good care of her kids. Not Jon!

so, if jon's argument is true, then is the same to be said about pam anderson and niecey nash too??? they both also have underage children and i don't hear THEIR exes calling them deadbeat mothers! what is up w/ attys who will waste their client's and the taxpayers monies on stupid cases?

kate had DWTS build the practice dance floor AT HER HOUSE! good grief! i'm sure the kids are in school half the day at least... sounds like this thinking on a lawsuit would apply to ANY working mother, saying that she's deadbeat because she leaves the kids to go to work. wow, can you imagine if the mother worked as a flight attendant? how horrid that she would leave her kids to travel for work!!! it's not like kate's off trying to pull a "tiger" or a "jesse"! she's WORKING!!! and she's not dancing like "bombshell"! jon, GET A LIFE!!!!

I think this scumbag looks at those kids and thinks if he get's child support, then he'll have a little piece of the money he's not privy to anymore.

That is BULL that Kate has been the primary parent since the day the kids were born! Jon worked a 9-5 job in the beginning for several years like most men do and when he came home he then took over with bathing the kids, playing with them, helping feed them etc. It was shown on the Jon and Kate show! This B---- always wanted fame she even mentioned something to the fact on the J&K show. She then took a simple reality show and decided she was a celebrity. The Roloffs, Duggars, Jen & Bill etc. do their shows and go on with their NORMAL lifes. This unbalanced nut decided to use her kids as cash cow's and decided in her own sick unbalanced mind that she was now a celebrity. People on her old block even said she wouldn't give anybody the time of day by just waving back at them when they drove by. Jon was supposed to have been very nice to everyone on the block and a down to earth guy as one neighbor said. Jon even mentioned 2-3 yrs into the show that he wanted to go back to a life where he could go to work like a normal person everyday and the B---- stated "Well Jon you know you can't go back" and then rubbed his knee like he was a dog being patted on the head to be quiet now. I really hope he wins, she took his entire life away from him, he should of got 1/2 of that money made on that show, he was a part of it the entire time. Sure he screwed up MAJOR by the way he did things later but this guy should NOT be considered the total BAD guy. He took crap no person would take for 10 yrs and finally took his way out. He should of been cooler about the way he wanted out BUT he made a mistake and she has made manyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy mistakes in their marriage. GO HOME KATE YOU SUCK AS A DANCER AND A PERSON!!!

Jon deserves the kids! I watched the show from DAY ONE! No, from the very 1st special! JON was always the hands on parent. JON bathed the 3 little girls, then turned around and bathed the 3 boys. THEN read the kids a story & tucked them in bed, lovingly. KATE b.eyotc..hed about Jon moving too slow & complained when JON was dressing the kids in the "wrong clothing."

Everyone who watched from day 1 knows Kate had someone to do her laundry, another "helper" to fold the laundry & put it away. Someone to clean and do all the other chores.

The only thing I ever saw Kate do was "cook" & half the time the kids ate Kraft Services from TLC or grapes, crackers and cheese on paper plates. JON is the only real caregiver the kids no aside from Nanny.

Jon is still the worlds most selfish man! Hasnt he put his kids through enough drama? When will it end?!? KATE IS WORKING!!! Something Jon should try! And while Kate may be gone from her kids for a few weeks in order to provide for them many parents only see their kids for a few hours a day with their jobs and school and such. At least when this show is over Kate will have pleny of time to spend with her little ones and money to support them as well. The only thing Jon is seeking is getting out of supporting his kids and trying to get some of the money Kate is earning from DWTS!!!

Its funny how Jon says nothing when it is first announced that Kate will be on DWTS and only just now has something to grib about when he sees Kate is not voted off right away?!? If you were really worried about your kids you would have tried to put a stop to it as soon as you could not afterwards. Poor Jon. Do I sense a little bit of jealousy from you? After all, You did have plans to be on a singles father show didnt you? Oh but thats a different story aint it?

Well, We know what Jon was doing instead of watching his 8 while Kate worked to do what he obviously cannot or WILL NOT do and that is earn a living to support their children. Does using his few brain cells he has left to get a lawyer to file a lawsuit make him dad of the year?
I have 5 children...their father hid to not pay for anything, if I didn't work long hours and have babysitters the state of maryland would have paid my bills.
Like her or not she hasn't sat down and cried poor like Jon. Being a mother can be sometime a thankless job to outsider and opinions.

She is working......shut up and give her a break. I wish I would have had a way to make it easier to pay bills. She caught a break that doesn't make her a jerk because she ALONE has to make all of the hard decisions.
Most people think their boss is a jerk. The strong must lead. It is not a popularity contest to do what is right. It's called being responsible. A Parent.
