Jon Gosselin Ordered To Return $180,000 While Kate Looks “Forward To Returning To Private Arbitration”

On Tuesday, a Pennsylvania judge ordered Jon Gosselin to return the $180,000 he took from the couple’s joint account and also asked Kate to provide accounting of past expenses by the next court date on October 26. Kate recently spoke out about the legal showdown and looks forward to the day the drama will play out minus the cameras.

“As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children.  Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues,” Kate said in a statement.

Jon must return the funds by October 26, and the $55,000 Kate used for household bills and expenses on behalf of the children are also subject for further determination by their arbitrator. Kate claims her estranged husband took over $232,000 from the account against the orders of their arbitrator. Jon claimed it was a fair thing to do, saying it amounted to his paycheck.
