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."

The guy has had substance issues, lied, tried to pin damage from his apartment on to HG, taken money without paying it back on many occasions, had multiple young partners whom he brought home to his kids, cannot be responsible, and cannot keep a job to support his family. And JG thinks he should be in charge of 8 children and have spousal support? Oh, get real and get a job lard a**!

confused...?    

Seriously? Don't they practice like 6-8 hours a day? (Not that it shows..) How on earth COULD she have time to take care of 8 kids if she's practicing for that much of the day?? I used to be on Kate's side of things, but Jon's is looking better and better.

If Kate can write a book on how to be a "mother" she sure as hell can write a book on how to get divorced in 10 years. Themes would include complaining, whining, scolding, controlling, and humiliating. Wives like Kate are the reason the few rare marriages are ruined by violence. Don't get married if you won't care about your significant other through the thick and thin 'till death.

And all you ladies need to stop saying Kate is out there working cause she isn't. The lady is on a dancing show not working her butt off. She is challenging her professional dancer's teaching methods. She rolls her eyes when the judges score her dances. Kate has no heart for the show and her true personality is unmasked bit by bit every week she is on. I think she'll leave the show unchanged as a person. The only change to her will be in her a bank account. PS Kate, grow up and ppppplease enjoy the dancing experience.

Jon is a fame addict and desparately wants to be accepted by 'white social cliques', with the sl_tty "girlfriends" and tacky teenage clothes. Hanging with Mike Lohan? Really?

Go back to getting a real job and quit trying to be a 'sex symbol'.

Kate has to work period, Jon has no $$, shut up.

Next Jon will have eye surgery to try to be more 'white looking'. It is pathetic when Asian men try too hard to pass as 'white', just be proud to be Asian, like Harold and Kumar.

Thank Goodness! Kate is a HORRIBLE mother! She only cares about money. Jon pays her $ 22,000 a month child and spousel support. So for everyone saing she needs to support her children, Get Real. I could live off that a month happily, but Kate can't run around and leave her children with nannies all the time for that amount.

Kate SUCKS!!
but Jon's not a lot better. I hope he gets those kids. He pays over 20K in child support so why is everyone saying he doesn't support his kids???

Kate is a publicity hoe! She only cares about money and well money. She and that Speidi people are in the same boat and I pray it goes down!! I can NOT believe all these people that think Kate's a good mom.
And we wonder where the world is going to!!!

Everyone bashes Jon, but Kate is a mean spirited biatch. I watched every episode of that show and at times I could not stand to watch Kate demeaning him and cutting his b*L*S off at every chance she could get! IMO Jon broke free from her and finally started to live. Maybe he didn't make the best choices, but let an animal out of it's cage and it goes wild. He was never a bad father, tried to help as much as he could, but nothing was ever good enough for that woman. Being married to her must have been like living in boot camp 24/7. I never felt the '' love " I laugh when I see her on DWTS, she can't move to save her life! All she can do is act like a drill sergeant -I am counting the days till she gets voted off for being a terrible dancer with no talent. You know what they say...'' the way a woman dances, reveals what type of a lover she is''. If that is fact, then Kate is lousy!

Kate has not historically been the primary care giver for these kids. It was Jon that gave up his job to stay at home while Kate travelled the country on book tours, speaking engagements. He should be given credit for raising this crew of kids. Sure he went a bit crazy and tested the party scene for a while after the separation - who doesn't make some bad decisions during a hard period of their life?

4. Kate does not have 2, or even four kids. SHE HAS EIGHT, six that are 5ish and two that are 9ish. STABILITY is what these kids NEED. 1) I watched their show from beginning TO A POINT. But, Kate's MEAN spiritedness, low self-esteem (why "I" think she picked on Jon so much, and NOW WE KNOW WHY :)
2) She and TLC/Discovery have made it so JON cannot go out and do any publicity stuff. WHY are they letting Kate go out and make money elsewhere?????
SO, I say, she wants to be the breadwinner, then let Jon take care of the kids.

So you think that if Kates the bread winner Jons deserves the kids huh? Sounds to me like you're one weak minded female! Jons way of making money was to appear at half nude parties where alcohol was abundant. He walked out on his wife and children to live like a little spoiled, out of control college boy! I watched just a few episodes of their show while they were married and i tell ya i knew Jon didn't like being a family man. I believe Kate knew this herself and had to deal with Jons melt downs off camera! Kate was clearely stressed with Jon and it showed during the show. Jon used the cameras to put his plan into action...he knew Kate was strong and he used that on camera to make her appear like she was this control hound and he was poor pitiful Jon! When you have that many children you have to be strong! Jon grew sick and tired of the daddy life style and we all see it now...his actions since leaving his family proves what i have said here. Look at this guy....he is a mess! Drinking,smoking and playing around with young women, while he should be out there trying to set a good example for his kids. He should stop smoking,drinking and go get a job like a good regular dad would! All he wants to do is attack Kate and that also proves he is jealous of her...patheic, little, nasty man!

DeeWa if you're on Jons side than you must secretly have the hots for him....YUCK! No good mom or woman out there should look at Jon an think he is a prize.
