Kate Gosselin

Moves to Hold Jon in Contempt

1/10/2011 7:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin is asking a judge to hold ex-hubby Jon Gosselin in contempt of court, TMZ has learned.

We've learned Kate's lawyers filed a Petition for Contempt of Custody Order last Thursday. 

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... Kate believes Jon is squarely violating the judge's custody order -- prohibiting either of them from talking about the case -- by allegedly selling information about the case and tweeting his displeasure of the judge's various decisions.

We're told Kate is claiming Jon is willfully disobeying the orders, mostly to make a buck, and she wants the judge to modify the custody agreement to protect the kids from their alleged money-grubbing dad.

We're told a hearing is set for later this month.

I uaed to love kate and supported her 100% until she started trying to look the why she does now, certainly not a stay a home mom taking care of her kids and maybe writing another book or something that keeps her home with the kids....

Kate went on every and any TV show she could get on and talked and talked and talked about Jon, the marriage, the divorce. SO, how is she NOT in contempt if that was the order, to not talk? Jon was slapped with an order that forbade him to get any more work in TV but Kate can do it all she wants? Jon's money from the show was put into escrow and his child support payments come directly from that. Kate continues to cry that she needs more TV time because, "college for 8 kids is expensive". BUT she will not say the TRUTH, which is that the kids' college is already PAID FOR by the State of Pennsylvania!! It is easily looked into, just search the TAP accounts for Pennsylvania or just put in a search for Tap accounts for Gosselin children. It is there. Kate spends money like it is going out of style on herself, and never set any aside for her kids (who were making the money, Kate would have NONE if not for those kids filming when they should be in school) until the judge MADE her. Then, it is only 15 percent divided by 8. Kate gets 85 percent for herself. YEP, that is a mother who only does it for "the children"...

The people that admire Kate are alot like her. Now that is a scary thought. Most of them are bitter women that have been dumped. Like Kate they are man haters.
