The divorce is playing out on national television but there’s an even bigger war between Jon and Kate Gosselin being waged away from the cameras – the battle for bucks.
Jon and Kate are accusing each other of financial deception, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Sources close to Jon say he is convinced assets are being hidden from him while other sources tell RadarOnline.com that Kate is furious Jon is wasting so much money – money she believes should go to their children.
Jon has taken girlfriend Hailey Glassman to France, spent a week in The Hamptons with Kate Major, bought a BMW, traded it back in, shopped for a Porsche for Hailey, rented an expensive apartment in New York and indulged in other cash-burning activities.
While Kate has been allowed by her network to make various TV appearances explaining her actions and correcting inaccurate stories about her, Jon had to cancel a cable interview at the last minute. He has made money by granting an exclusive interview to a magazine.
Jon is now hinting that he wants off the show. And in the meantime he will host a pool party in Los Angeles and has been very open about his desire to engage in other money-making projects, despite the restrictions of his TLC contract. He has been in talks with the Ed Hardy company, whose logo has been blurred every time Jon wears one on the TV show.
The big problem, according to Kate sources, is the soon to be ex wife thinks the cash is all going to fuel Jon’s Suddenly Single lifestyle and not being put away for the kids.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 is not the couple’s only source of income. They have books and speaking engagements but with divorce suddenly looming, that may not be as lucrative in the future.
So with the expenses of separate lifestyles mounting, the battle over Benjamins is turning ugly.
