He is claiming Kate’s appearance on Dancing With the Stars makes her an absentee mother who leaves her children with an army of nannies.

But Jon has not addressed the fact that until recently he didn’t see his children at all because he wanted to be with his girlfriend.

Kate is making $200,000 for her appearance on the hit ABC show and flies from Pennsylvania to Los Angeles and back again every week, rarely missing more than a few nights with the children.

Jon, however, didn’t see the kids at all until Morgan dumped him.

“When they compare who has spent more time with the children Jon is going to be embarrassed,” the source said. “He’s doing this because he blew through all his money and has no place to live.”
