Star reported that our former blue tooth wearing darling, Jon G could potentially face jail time because he can’t pay his child support. He said, “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. 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…I think this is completely ridiculous! We have eight children and they need us, she is putting reality TV and dating in front of the kids who need to have their mother.”
Want to know the best part about this story? This morning Kate’s lawyer responded with, “I read Jon’s statement and was quite surprised to read that he claims to be struggling to keep his child support payments current. As of April 27, 2012, Kate voluntarily relieved Jon Gosselin of all current and future child support obligations for their eight children…Kate and Jon talked and worked through all of these issues and she withdrew the child support.”
How amazing is that? The dude was relieved of his duties, and he’s still making these claims. Boo hoo, so you can’t pay the rent because you have to get a “real” job like everyone else. Jon, suck it up, grow a pair and learn a new skill other than douchebaggery…The dude wouldn’t be in this position if he didn’t prance around the country doing press about his divorce, spending money on douchey jeans and bluetooths.
As I’m writing this post I keep looking back at the days Jon and Kate had their TLC show, and I can’t believe that I ever actually liked them. I was thoroughly convinced they were a sweet couple in the first two seasons. Boy, was I wrong!
