As Kate Gosselin was being hounded by photographers Friday morning after calling the cops on her estranged hubby, Jon was explaining why he wouldn’t let Kate inside their home in Wernersville, PA. Thursday night.
Jon’s comments on Friday back up what RadarOnline.com was first to report Thursday night.
Speaking Friday morning at the fence of his home, Jon said the reason was simple. Per their custody agreement, it was not her night to stay at the house. “She tried to come home and I wouldn’t let her in the gate,” said Jon. “I want to spend time with my kids.. and she’s going to have to leave.”
When Jon refused her entry, Kate got upset and called the cops, who came to scene but told them they needed to settle the matter amongst themselves.
The couple also argued over his hiring of Stephanie Santoro, the nanny on duty at the time, whom Kate apparently does not approve of.
“She didn’t agree with my babysitting,” said Jon.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, on at least one occasion, Jon has spent the night with Santoro, 23, a former cocktail waitress, single mom and aspiring model whose online resume reveals she’s willing to pose nude!
After their spat, an upset Kate left and checked into a nearby Day’s Inn.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, at 4 a.m. Friday, there was a huge scene when Kate tried to leave the hotel. We were on the scene as Kate had the police come and carry her luggage and walk her to her black Toyota SUV, which was approximately 40 steps from the front hotel door.
Four police cars showed up and cops shined lights in every car in the parking lot to look for photographers. The ones they found were kicked out of the lot before Kate came out.
One photographer went to a lot across the street where a cop later came and blocked him in until Kate got close to the highway. The pap then attempted to follow Kate down U.S. Highway 222 North but lost her just past Kutztown, PA.
The pap told RadarOnline.com that Kate was driving about 95 miles an hour and shut off her headlights several times when she got near an exit, in an apparent attempt to try to throw off the two paparazzi cars that were following her.
And although Jon may have spent the night with Santoro in the past, he is still romancing 22-year-old Hailey Glassman.
