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.

I wish a sinkhole would open up right under these two. The kids would be better off, since they have been nothing but a source of income and attention for these useless fame-hungry morons.

Barbie-head Kate with her 'do of the week, that's funny!

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

Give Jon the sextuplets. Give Kate the older ones. It's obvious w/ Mady's attitude that Kate has already turned her into a miniature Kate. This way she can continue to travel the world and make money off of the family. Those two are old enough now where she can get them their own room, and her and Steve the bodyguard can sleep together in the Penthouse. Jon obviously has a better relationship w/ the little ones than Kate. He can keep them from growing up to be like their Mom, and Jon can use them to pick up girls since they're still kind of at the fun age. Problem solved!

Gee, how is that whole reality show thing working out for you two knuckleheads?

I wonder..... if they never signed on the dotted line, if they never had dollar signs in their eyes, if they really cared about their kids, if they really loved each other....

would they be divorced and vilified by the public today?!

My guess is no. Instead they are a couple of jokes and are great writing material for the comics. Their kids are little zombies who constatly LOOK for a camera.


And these two harbour zero gulit for how their INFANTS are being raised like freaks in a circus for all us to gawk at. All the drama and there they are in the middle with a broken home and Mom's got stars in her eyes. Great.

Talk about dispicable. I hope she hangs on to some of that cash for the future, therapy is isn't cheap when you have a tribe O' children.

@ AJA: Unlike you, I've never watched even ONE episode of the show... BUT, I've seen enough of Jon Gosselin in interviews, etc to know that however much of a b**** Kate was, he's a d-bag through and through... Worthless piece of crap who spends more time trying to be relevant than he spends with his kids...

Who cares about her. All Kate is worried about are her boobs showing, short skirts, fake smile and screaming all the time. Can't we go one month without hearing about her, she's so yesterdays news.

TMZ, Please, if you are going to do any stories on Jon&Kate, please implement a policy to only use photos of these bozos from a distance. No more close-ups. Thank you.

Jon and Kate Gosselin deserve a Razzy Award for the most pathetic parents of the decade.

If you want to be rich and famous, FINE! Who doesn't. But to do so off the backs of your young children by sticking cameras in their faces everywhere they go is sick sick sick. Shame on these two losers.

It is possible that his custody and visitation could be every other weekend, but with the massive amount of money she makes with the show she could end up paying him child support. Child support is calculated by taking the income of both parents and factoring in custody percentage. In theory if she makes a heck of a lot more money she could pay child support to him. That would be funny!

I don't give a flying F. These two losers have had more than their 15 minutes of fame - made a fortune and for what -- pushing out 8 babies which they regard as cash cows??!! All Kate does is whore around grinning to show off her new teeth (paid for by her kids) looking for some hot new assignment or man to get her away from the kids and outa the house!! Enough is Enough! In fact, if this show goes back on the air I'm going to BOYCOTT THE STATION THAT AIRS IT. And don't even get me started on that moron John. AAAaahhha!
