Jon Gosselin is paying up. The father of eight returned money he took from a joint bank account his lawyer says. While Mark Heller says Jon is in “complete compliance” with a court order, he claims Kate Gosselin will be held in contempt if she doesn’t act Friday.
“Unless something happens today she will be going through contempt proceedings Monday,” Mark Heller told People. He did not confirm whether Jon had returned the full amount of $180,000.
Kate had been ordered to account for $55,000 she supposedly withdrew for household expenses. Kate’s divorce attorney Mark Momjian did not immediately comment.
On October 13, a Montgomery County, Penn., judge ordered both sides to return any money not used appropriately.
Attorneys for Jon and Kate had also filed contempt motions against each other for allegedly violating a divorce arbitrator’s guidelines for how the money from a joint account should be spent.
