Kate Gosselin’s attorney is firing back at reports that Jon Gosselin is seeking primary custody of their 8 kids, calling the claims ‘reckless’ and ‘offensive’ in a statement to RadarOnline.com.
Jon’s new lawyer, Anthony List, dubbed Kate an ‘absentee mom’ and says Jon is headed to court to prove that his ex-wife’s gig on Dancing with the Stars is hurting their kids.
Kate’s lawyer Mark Momijan told RadarOnline.com, “We haven’t received any formal filing yet but I can’t imagine anything farther from the truth. Kate is a devoted mother. Her concern for the welfare of her kids is so prominent that any allegations like this report are reckless and so far from the mark, it’s offensive.”
Jon is supposedly seeking to shed his $20,000 a month support payments as well and wants Kate to pay him.
The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star has not had a steady job since TLC pulled the plug on the reality show after Jon refused the network to continue filming his children.
TLC sued Jon and won a preliminary injunction after charging he violated his contract. The suit was settled but it cost Jon a fortune and TLC clearly came out the winner.
“Jon was recently dumped by his new girlfriend Morgan Christie,” said a source who knows him.”Whenever something like that happens, he lashes out.”
