Prove Jon isn't paying child support, Kate

A lot of completely baseless reports have surfaced this week that either Jon isn't paying child support, or was never even ordered child support at all. And it started when Kate told People that she couldn't count on Jon for support.

All reports coming out of the confidential divorce last December indicated Jon was paying Kate more than $10,000 in support a month. Kate reportedly did not ask for alimony.

If Jon doesn't have a child support order and Kate feels she needs it, it is Kate's responsibility to go down to Berks County child support division and file. If there is an order, no one has provided any kind of credible evidence he's not paying. And you can bet Kate would let us know unequivacly if he weren't. Instead she's just been dropping vague hints.

Prove he's not paying child support, Kate. Prove it. Come out and say he's not if he isn't. We're waiting.

False reports that someone is not paying child support are libel and slander and Jon could sue for damages.

This is what really gets me irritated-- when Kate implies that Jon is a deadbeat dad in interviews by saying she cannot "depend" on Jon to support his kids, so she has to somehow stay on TV to make money. Complete and utter BS, IMO.
If Jon was not paying child support and had the means to do so, you can bet she'd be in court and in public saying so!

Just a friendly reminder to Kate and any media oulets trying to claim Jon isn't paying support. If it's not true, that's slander if it's said orally and libel if in print. Jon could sue you for damages.

Have you seen the pics of Kate "playing" with the kids? LOL! She's wearing her dance practice outfit. She must have ran out for a photo op quick because all the media outlets and blogs are saying she never plays with them.

Maybe Jon does not have the money to pay child support.
Does not mean he doesn't love his kids but it does mean someone has to work.
If he has no money coming in its pretty hard for money to go out. Don't hear to much of him traveling or living the high life anymore.
I can only guess what his useless legal fee's cost him.
I hope the reports I read yesterday are true that Jon will be with the kids while Kate is in L.A. taping.

Administrator said...

Maybe all his child support payments are the reason he can't live the high life like Kate can. Jon is back under contract with TLC are they not paying him, or are they just holding him hostage without payment? I have a funny feeling he is being paid to go along with all this. How can you legally hold someone as an employer without payment/compensation?
Also he is supporting the kids on visits, for every day you visit you pay less in support. Leave the kids enough and Kate will owe JON support.

Kate was just bashing Jon once again to make herself look good. She does it so many times that everyone is already use to it.

Now, if Jon were to say the same thing about Kate, how she was never home, and how it was him who had to be there for the kids, everyone would have went psycho and called him a crybaby.

Deborah said...

Its all maybe's.
Maybe this and maybe that.
The only thing anybody knows is what is in their own mind and heart.
How does hating Kate help Jon or the Kids?
There is nothing anyone hating Kate on the internet has done to stop her from living her life how she see's fit.
If you don't like her fine don't watch her, don't read about her. Just remember all this hate and spite has not stopped her.

Administrator said...

It's not even so much about Kate in this instance. It's about the media taking one snide remark from her about Jon and twisting it around such that now they are saying Jon isn't paying his child support. Kate said she couldn't depend on Jon. While that may imply child support, she never said that or said he wasn't paying. She implied it which was wrong, but she never was clear about it. Two days later, the media is saying he doesn't pay. Based on WHAT??? It's a perfect example of the media hanging on her every word and spinning things to the maximum in her favor.

Watch our for a libel suit from Jon.

PatK said...

When will Jon be free from the constraints of TLC so he can resume setting the record straight himself, if he so desires? I'd really like to know if the settlement reached includes TLC owning him longer than the original contract--which, I believe, was supposed to end in April or May.

Deborah said...

Looks to me that the media could care less about this family. They are only into what sells and all Gosselin news sells these days.
The media does plenty to spin lies that are not in Kates favor it just doesn't bother the people that want to find fault with her.
It makes me sick when they do it to Jon or Kate.

anonymouse said...

^ Jon doesn't care about his public image. LOL

That is something I will find interesting also PatK.

It's not so much about "hate" for me. I hate the situation created for those kids--they are public figures and the public already knows way too much about their little lives--but the whole PR/media/network spin bothers me.
Believe me, I used to give Kate (and Jon) the benefit of the doubt and cut them some slack because they had eight children (back when the show was first aired). But things always bothered me about Kate's behavior, and things that were said and done on the show didn't always add up.
Now, it seems that Kate has been fine with letting TLC/Discovery own her life and her kid's lives and has repeatedly thrown the father of her children under the bus all so she could remain in the public eye and have a television career. You want a TV career? Fine. But don't tell me it's all for your children and you "have to" to support the kids. It's a lie.
And anyone who goes on a reality show, or any other TV show or engages in a very public life should know that, along with the fans and admiration, they will have to accept the feact that there will be critics, snark, and judgement. Just a fact of the business.

Deborah said...

I do agree on a lot of your points lifeoriley.
Maybe it would be better if Kate said this is what I want to do to support my family, this is a dream I have.
I support both Gosselins and to this day I have not seen anything in either one that I would call star quality.
While watching J&K+8 I saw a high strung over stressed, nagging mother of 8 small beautiful children and a slightly immature dad, both loved their children.
We don't know what happened in their marriage only they know.

browneyedgirl said...

Kate says in public and for the record that the kids' dad is a deadbeat and WE'RE the ones who are saying awful things about her that the kids can read someday?
Tell me another one.

itsaboutthekids said...

Yes, and if Kate is demeaning Jon in public, just imagine what she's telling the kids in private. Of course, she always bashed Jon so the kids are probably used to it.

It’s so irritating when a blogger claims to be a proponent for fair & equal treatment of J&K, in the best interest of the kids, then they contradict themselves?! You’re chasing yourself in a circle, like a dog chasing its tail. It’s ok to speculate on Jon BUT don’t speculate on Kate?! WTH!

In the 1st post, Deborah said... 11:39 AM, theres a passive-aggressive bash on Jon’s ability to support his children then questioning his employment and assets and life style.


• “Maybe Jon does not have money to pay child support.”

Hello! What planet are you on?! Jon pays $10,000 per month in child support. That judgment is calculated using a standard formula based on BOTH parent’s income. Kate would be on every talk show/gossip magazine to boo-hoo she has no money because Jon didn’t pay his child support. She proves herself to be reliable in passive-aggressively bashing Jon, every chance she can.

• “...someone has to work…” “if he has no money coming in its pretty hard for money to go out. Don’t hear to much of him traveling or living the high life anymore.”

NOW, HOW would you know if/when/where/how Jon is or isn’t working? You have personal knowledge about his employment and assets? Proof? Jon is still under contract with TLC. I see you keep tabs on Jon’s lifestyle because you know his life style choices and travel schedule.

• “ I can only guess what his useless legal fee’s cost him.”

And if Jon’s kids read your post, how might the kids feel that their father had "useless legal fees." Is this something you would want your child to read about you?

Part II. Deborah said... 12:22 PM, there is a strong assertion to defend and support Kate.

“Its all maybe's.
Maybe this and maybe that.

Deborah, you’re right. If we don’t like her, we don’t have to watch or read about her. BUT since Kate is a public figure with a big dream to be a star, we want to please her and pay attention to her. [sarcasm]

But until she changes her ways, the attention we give her will be the TRUTH & NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH as well as THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY.

BTW she can’t have it both ways. She’s being ‘victimish’ (her lingo) by complaining about the negative press. Mommy Dearest is NOT a Super Mom. AND she ONLY wants positive press. Are you kidding?!! TOO BAD! If you want your life to be an open book by sacrificing your children at the alter of fame, then she needs to face the fire storm that's coming her way.

If it looks like a duck/diva, it quacks like a duck/diva, it MUST BE A DUCK/DIVA!!

Administrator said...

I haven't seen The View yet but I heard that the ladies asked Kate if Jon was paying child support. And she AVOIDED THE QUESTION AND CHANGED THE SUBJECT!

If he's not paying, why won't she just say so? Because he IS paying.

Anyone see it yet?

Administrator said...

It's really amazing you would think after all the other lies this family has perpetrated you would think they would worry the house of cards is going to fall. But they keep on lying, lie after lie. One lie stacked up on another.

HI 50 said...

DWTS' practice is working for her. She's an expert at dancing around the questions, right?! Remember Jon's T-shirt? "LIES, LIES, LIES." Kate hates the ugly press she's receiving? Boo hoo, so victimish.

So IF she was asked a direct questions AND she didn't answer it, WHY didn't the ladies of the View insist on an answer?

Diane said...

Personally, I think, they did not insist on an answer because they have to play nice with her to keep their jobs. Kate is not going to be on any show that will not play nice with her. She is protected by TLC. I think because they have an investment in her and they want to be repaid! JMO.

Administrator said...

There is only one explanation here. Jon is in full compliance with his child support obligations. Kate KNOWS this and thus KNOWS she can't say he's not paying, because that would be slander. So she just avoids the question or makes vague implications that stop short of slander, but still try to create the IMPRESSION he's a deadbeat. What a piece of work she is. She can't have people believing he's actually there, because then we would ask, with $10,000 a month from him why do you "need" to do DWTS?

itsaboutthekids said...

That's my take on it too, Admin. I wish there was some way to prove proof positive that Jon is, or is not living up to his child support obligations. Why does it have to be such a secret? Either he is or isn't. Are they not allowed to discuss this by any agreement they have?
