Jon Gosselin Begs For Our Sympathy, Money, & A Guest Spot On What Not To Wear

Jon Gosselin Does Nothing Ever Including Pay Child Support

He lost his wife. His kids. He may lose his home. He could even lose his freedom if the struggling Dad doesn't find the means to pail child support.

While the trials and tribulations of Jon Gosselin are fine lyrics to a country song, it doesn't sound like a very joy-filled existence.

The former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 spoke recently about his legal and financial woes.

He lamented:

"I can't afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tell me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support. I am a single father who’s trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do — pay child support or rent? I need to support my kids, but I could lose my house, and I need my home to continue to have custody."


You aren't the only single parent bringing home less bacon in a recession!

He continued:

"I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I'm going to end up in jail because I can't afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money."


Thank you, Jon!

Thank you sooo much for taking the high road in discontinuing the televised exploitation of your kids after so many years of taking the other road that led to a fat bank account.

We sincerely appreciate it!

    So hes basically saying Kate makes a lot of money so he shouldn't pay because hes struggling. Hes not saying it out right but thats what hes implying.

    why should the non custodial parent pay someone who is making tons and tons of money??? it makes no sense, 1 kid or 20, if you are financially capable, while you ruined your ex's image to do anything for himself, why keep sticking your hand out for more $$$$!! WOMEN WITH KIDS!!! GET A JOB!!! GET OFF THE WELFARE AND FOOD STAMPS!!! THIS IS A BIG PART OF WHY THE US IN IN DEBT!!!

    Re: Meggie246524 – Its not like they purposely had sextuplets. The show stated that he wanted just the twins, who they concieved with help of fertility treatments. But Kate wanted "just one more". And she took fertility treatments to get pregnant again and ended up with all those kids.

    Anyways, I think Jon should work hard to make money to take care of his kids amd himaelf, but I'm curious why he has to pay child support. She was still making money with reality shows, books, and interviews after they divorced. Doesn't she have plenty of money?

    Re: sick_girl
    Because he choose to have kids and its his financial duty regardless of how much the mother makes. He choose to spend his jon and kate plus 8 money on women, then it ran out. He should have gone back to school or even save the money for a rainy day or even more importantly in a trust for his kids. Now he was to say that kate makes enough money to support herself and the kids. If it was the other way around, i guarantee he would demand that she pays.

    Re: littleme87 – Yes, that's why I said I think he should work hard to support his kids and himself. But he can't do anything to support his kids if he is living off nothing. Sure he chose to have kids, but if my husband and I had children and divorced and I was able to live beyond comfortably while my husband lived terribly I wouldn't continue to suck his bank account dry. If she is worth millions, then the decent thing to do would be to let her ex-husband get back on his feet. The kids need a father out of jail so he can try to be there for him. If one day she started struggling to take care of the kids, he wouldn't be around, or he would be completely bone dry broke. For now, she should let him get back on his feet and start saving money. Because one day they might both need it.

    Re: sick_girl – well said, kate is making enough and john should be able to work on himself to better himself for his children. there should be a separation period where each parent can settle into their seprate lives, and hopefully by then can come up with a settlement without involving taxpayer dollars

    He wasn't on TV prior to the pregnancies…how did he expect to pay for all those children then? Excuses, excuses. Jon, get a second or third job. That's what the rest of us do.

    I don't know about the laws in PA, but in my state, child support payments are made based on your income and necessary expenses(food, rent, etc…). That doesn't mean you can rent a million $ home and eat out at expensive restaurants every night, if your budget doesn't allow it. It doesn't matter if it's 1 kid or 8 that he would have to pay for, the courts here would never put someone out on the streets for not making a ton of money to pay child support. They will put you in jail if you fail to pay the amount set by courts, which you should be able to pay if you're not self centered and have to have luxury items.

    Why… cannot people that are not in the debate about gay VS not gay agree to dis-agree, Your side can have an "I am gay and I LOVE it parade" , and no one would say a word. If I held an "I LOVE vagina and I am straight" parade, I would be cruicified in the media. Enjoy your fringe success. Empty, meaning you will have lived a life devoid of any meaning but that of contempt for non-Hollywood folks like yourslf. You are doing not only the gay community, but all communities a disservice. Sleep tight.
