Will these two ever stop fighting in court?
Unfortunately for him, a judge ruled in Kate's favor and allowed her to take the kids because the excursion was considered work related.
A source says:
"It was another slap in the face for Jon because he did not want the kids to go to Australia. But the judge ruled that because it was for work it was okay. Jon had plans to get together with his kids and friends for New Year, but now he will not see them until they return in the middle of January.
He was scheduled to have them this weekend, but there was nothing he could do as the decision was taken out of his hands. Kate told Jon about the trip, and when he did not agree it was decided that the judge should intervene and the ruling went in her favor.
He is trying to put a brave face on it and has explained the situation to his own family and friends, but obviously not being with his kids for New Year [wa]s a big disappointment for him. But they all respect him for trying to stand-up to Kate and for fighting for what he thinks is right for his kids too."
It's sad that the kids couldn't be with their dad for the holiday, especially since they were "working" and probably
not getting paid miserable throughout the entire trip.
