EXCLUSIVE: Kate Gosselin’s Lawyer Calls Jon’s Bid For Custody ‘Reckless’

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.”
