Settlement Reached

In Jon & Kate Custody War

7/27/2010 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The epic child custody war between Jon and Kate Gosselin is finally over -- TMZ has learned the former reality couple has reached a settlement agreement ... but the terms are extremely confidential.

As we previously reported, Jon filed documents in a Pennsylvania court back in April asking for primary custody of their eight kids -- and demanded an opportunity to renegotiate his child support obligations.

But earlier this month, the two sides officially agreed on a new arrangement that involves both custody and financial obligations ... but the terms of the deal were sealed by the court.

A source close to the couple confirmed the deal -- telling us, "An official agreement between Jon and Kate has been reached and they will be working together for the benefit of their children."

Lawyers for both sides had no comment.

Does anyone remember years ago when you could get a large Barbie-type head to play with it's hair and makeup?

Kate seriously reminds me of that toy. My brother took mine and used a permanent marker to deface her. :(

"...but the terms are extremely confidential."
TMZ, you forgot to add "until such a date that Kate determines it would be worth it to make a few bucks off the info, namely, by selling an interview to a magazine that will reveal the info, or writing a new book."
Nothing regarding thi$ woman'$ children is offlimit$ for the right price. $he will wh*re these kids until they are 25.

It's obvious what she's done with money... He needs to try to become a spokesman for PROACTIV. That family's time has come & gone. There's even some new "realtity" show with a young couple with their litter of kids now. The Goselins can go away for good now. When they need more ca$h, one of them can create some sort of $candal.

There's no reason for the government to take the kids away. There is no such thing as a perfect family. The only problem with the Gosselins is they sold themselves to TV for the money and I guess if I had 8 kids to raise, I'd do it too. I just hope Jon got a better deal - it's becoming obvious to everyone Kate is not as good a parent as Jon was and anyone who's watched the show knew that years ago. The kids and Jon will be okay - Kate will continue to whine and pout and think it's all about her.

Kate goes to different states to film her kids because she breaks PA child labor laws. She's like Oksana, a female sociopath.
