“It’s disgusting and morally wrong”


Former reality TV star Jon Gosselin has claimed his ex-wife Kate Gosselin stole more than $100,000 from her children’s trust funds, although she said she only borrowed the money to survive .

In a legal document obtained by The sun, the reality star reportedly plans to use the funds to “meet her and the kids’ expenses.” However, later that year, she reportedly bought a lakeside home in North Carolina worth around $750,000.

In an interview with the outlet, a furious Jon insisted she hadn’t repaid the borrowed funds and called her moves “disgusting and morally wrong”.

“Parents are not supposed to withdraw money from these accounts without permission and without writing up documents that they will pay it back – but she produced no documents and no payment was made,” he said. he shared in a statement to The sun. “You can’t just live off your children’s money. It is disgusting and morally reprehensible.

Kate claimed (according to The sun) that her eight children – sextuplets Hannah, Collin, Aaden, Leah, Alexis and Joel, all 18, and twins Mady & Cara, 21 – owe her money for their private tuition, which she claims to have paid out of pocket and cost him $387,000.

“So, I mean, I’m not looking to get that back, but I borrowed $100,000 from the children’s trust,” she claimed in the documents. “And he technically owes me $387,000.”

Jon told the outlet that he noticed something was wrong when he got custody of Colin and Hannah and discovered an anomaly in their bank statements. He and his ex-wife had set up trust accounts for their children to protect their income until they were over 18.

In addition to the $750,000 lake house in North Carolina with a pool and private jetty, the outlet also pointed out that Kate received $40,000 per episode for her show, “Kate Plus Dates,” which lasted one season. As a result, she could not have borrowed money from her children’s funds for the sole purpose of surviving.

Jon then expressed his anger at the situation, calling her a hypocrite for “telling the world that she saved her children’s money when she was stealing from them”.

He continued: “There was no remorse on his part. Now they are 18; she thinks she can get away with it.

As for the ruling, the judge shared similar sentiments with Jon, saying Kate lacked credibility when it came to her low-income claims. “If it was loans, there should be evidence of repayments in the future. The evidence does not support the mother’s argument that her earning capacity is zero.

Jon has custody of two of his eight children

Jon, who stopped paying child support in 2012, said he only had custody of two of his eight children and had worked hard to make them independent.

During an interview with HEYHannah said she chose to live with her father in Pennsylvania rather than her mother in North Carolina because she was closer to him and they had always had a good bond.

“It’s a lot, growing up in a hectic family with many children. And there is no one-to-one caring relationship that you have with your parents. I felt like my dad gave me that attention and felt like I had a good solid relationship with a parent,” Hannah shared.

“It was a difficult decision to leave my siblings. I didn’t want to be separated from them or live in a home different from theirs. But I feel like there was unfair treatment in my mom’s house, and I just wanted to live with my dad.
