After many, many denials to the contrary Jon Gosselin is finally admitting to ripping off funds from his and Kate‘s joint bank account.
Kate had accused Jon of removing more than $230,000, and Tuesday in a Pennsylvania court a judge ordered Jon to pay back $180,000 by their next court date of October 26th.
Now, in an interview with ET’s Diane Dimond Gosselin fesses up to pilfering $155,000, but still insists that he did nothing wrong, and also claims he only did what Kate herself did.
“Well, it was just after arbitration, we weren’t supposed to take money out of the restrictive account and we both did,” he tells Diane. “I was found in contempt for doing so, I didn’t realize, I was just like taking my paycheck out.”
And when it comes to how much he claims Kate has taken?
“It’s unaccounted for,” he says. “So by Friday, we’ll know her complete accounting, which might reduce my accounting, so I don’t know what’s going on.”
According to the judgment from Wednesday’s hearing Kate has to provide accounting records for $55,000 that she claims she withdrew for “household expenses”.
When asked by Dimond if Jon wanted to approach Kate in court Wednesday and tell her they could work it all out together, Jon replied, “I thought about doing that, but you know, in a public setting as a public figure you have to watch what you say and do.”
Well, with their lives continuing to be ever more played out in public it looks like there wont be any end to the drama anytime soon in the near future.
