It’s official. Jon and Kate Gosselin will announce on Monday that they are divorcing, a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
The source says that Kate recently met with a divorce lawyer. Another source told RadarOnline.com that the couple had previously agreed to separate by July 15.
But that timetable has now been pushed forward.
TLC released video earlier Thursday teasing that a major announcement was coming. And while many have speculated that it centered on the couple splitting up, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that the marriage is over and Jon will file divorce papers next week.
The stars of Jon & Kate Plus 8 have unwittingly used reality television to broadcast the reality of an unraveling marriage. And they’ve done it to record ratings this season as media frenzy around the battling couple has grown in recent weeks, including this past weekend when Jon and Kate spent their 10th wedding anniversary apart.
Kate previously took the sextuplets on vacation to North Carolina without Jon, who was accused of having an affair with Deanna Hummel. Her brother discussed the relationship publicly in a tell-all with Us Weekly magazine.
Jon and Kate were photographed together Wednesday for the first time in a while.
But they have been talking divorce for quite some time, the source told RadarOnline.com, and the decision was recently finalized to announce it.
After being caught with Deanna Hummel, Jon was then spotted with Hailey Glassman, the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon. Sources have told RadarOnline.com that their relationship is ongoing.
