Jon's Lawyer: Kate's a Shameless Self-Promoter

4/22/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Jon Gosselin will press on with his "absentee mom" argument in custody court, in spite of the fact that Kate Gosselin just got booted from "Dancing with the Stars."

Jon's lawyer, Anthony List, tells TMZ, "'Dancing with the Stars' is just the tip of the iceberg for Kate, as surely there will be many other projects to take its place soon."

List notes ... Kate has already signed on for two new shows -- both on TLC.  And, he scoffs, "She's always promoting something ... and most of the time it's herself."

Jon is asking the court for primary custody of their 8 kids.  He also wants child support from the parent who is hands down becoming the breadwinner in the dysfunctional family.

UPDATE 6:34 AM PT:  Jon Gosselin just tweeted that he fired Anthony List on April 15.  Really?

Well, let's see. Jon destroys their show and tells TLC the kids can no longer be filmed. Kate is still under contract to TLC (as is Jon, I believe, but then, we really don't know the settlement. So Kate and TLC try and find projects for Kate while she's still under contract. Of course she's going to self-promote.



Jon's going to lose as Kate has a right to work and no substantial changes have occurred since the agreement in December. He's just forcing Kate to spend the money she just earned from DWTS for an attorney. He's pathetic!

Jon should hook up with Tila Tequila and just go away.

Kate is trying to make a living for herself and her kids. What is Jon doing besides coming to the realization that he's been a complete ass?

He's such a transparent loser! On the one hand, he blames her for being gone all the time, trying to earn a living. But on the other, he wants to be supported by her gravy train. He resents her getting the attention and exposure, but makes no bones about wanting to enjoy the fruits of her labor. His main concerns about his children surfaced when his own behavior got him cut-off from the TV show. I hope the courts put him in his place - overgrown high school flunkie who pimps out his family to live nicely!

Stupid Jon. He's causing Kate to spend even more money on this stupid ass action. His lawyer is a mouthy jerk who has no track record in family law. If Kate had an ex that has a job, she wouldn't have to work so hard. Jon and his lawyer will be the most hated in the USA if this keeps up.

Of course Jon wants child support from Kate. It's not like he actually has a job to contribute to his kids' life. At least Kate is doing something to support her family. Jon should consider himself lucky that his kids have at least one responsible parent.

Oh Please!! As if Jon and his MANY new girlfriends... or should I say flavor of the week is any better for the kids? At least Kate seems to not be going through a mid life crisis!!! Just stop pretending your looking out for the kids when all you want is a pay check.

Well, seeing as John is a deadbeat dad, who has killed the proverbial golden goose that laid the eggs and would provide for the entire sextuplets and the twins (when he got the show cancelled), makes Kate the sole provider for these children.



No regular job would provide for this family of 9 (and a deadbeat dad) so Kate has to work the only angle she can for her family. Now that makes her away from her family more than she would like to but so be it. John Gosselin is a sad sack of cow excrement and should hold his big mouth and start to provide for his family instead of nagging Kate about every little BS issue.

What a fame whre. NOW THIS is the definition of a fame whre!!



WHY is Jon going to the press about his custody plans??? This is PRIVATE info and no one's business but the two of them. Does he think the court of public opinion can award him money and kids he claims he doesn't want?



Stop giving this ass cash for tabloid stories!!!!! He is the douchebag of the century.. A class dead beat dad.



I know if a guy who dumped his kid off for 5 years then suddenly he wanted the tax credit and yanked the kid from it's adoptive mom. Men after money suck!!! and the kids will be fcked up forever!! The kid I mentioned gets NO attentio as her dad only cares about drugs and women.. hmmm sounds familiar.



GET OFF THE TABLOIDS JON!!!! You're such a leech to society
