Jon Gosselin: I Never Asked for Custody

4/22/2010 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin is lashing out at the lawyer he just fired .... claiming the attorney filed legal papers asking for primary custody without Jon's permission.


Gosselin tells TMZ, "I never wanted primary custody, he [attorney Anthony List] filed for that.  I only wanted a more flexible custody schedule so I could be with my kids."

But List tells TMZ, "Jon signed off on everything."

Jon, who is pissed that List spoke with the media, insists he wants to pay child support, adding, "I just can't afford the $22,000 a month right now. That is why I'm trying to find a job."

As for what type of job ... Jon says, "I would like a job in some aspect of TV, probably as a host."

Well, if Kate can dance ...

What the hell is he smoking or taking?




Kate and Jon both need to go back to whatever it is they were doing before they had there babies. They are NOT celebs and the press needs to STOP taking photos of them and recording every word they say. We are all tired of seeing and hearing about them!!!

Seriously, I think Jon should pen his own book. He would make a fortune and that's a book I WOULD buy.

Loser! Sure he doesn't want full custody, he just wants the children when he has time out of his busy schedule of doing nothing!

Stop blaming JUST jon. This suit was filed right after Kate starts dancing?? Then DROPPED as soon as she gets booted? They all PLAYED us. Kate, Jon AND TLC. Jon has NOT been allowed to talk to ANY press at all, only NOW he talks to TMZ? With no reprocussions from TLC? Whaaaaaaat? TLC Kate and Jon you all suck. What users. Sell your kids and your SOULS to TLC. Shame for shame.

Does anyone see this for what it is?? They, Jon and Kate, are playing gossip "fans" for all it's worth! Anytime she has something to promote he coincidentally goes off with some crazy antic. She gets more press time to discuss how hard it is to raise the 8 kids and she winds up w/ a deal to make more money. I think they are in kahoots with eachother and plan this **** out. That's how Jon makes his money....she pays him to start **** so she can play the "poor me" part. WAKE UP PEOPLE! Don't play into their hands...and pad their pockets!

Does he seriously think he has the talent to be a host. The only reason why he is a celebrity is because his kids are cute.

$22,000 per month? Come on. I think they need to re-assess his income, as it obviously isn't as much as when they were doing the show. And he is a father of 8 kids, any surprise that he doesn't want full custody?

The child support was set when he still had money. Now he has no job so that will be reduced. But he brought it all on himself by deep sixing the show he was on. If he thinks he can be a TV host he is dreaming. He is not articulate the way Kate is. No one is going to hire him. He better start looking for a different lind of job.
