Fighting back tears, Kate Gosselin told The Today Show on Monday she only has $1,000 to care for her children after husband Jon took $230,000 out of their joint account last week.
“He took $230,000 of the $231,000 we had,” the 34-year-old reality TV mom told Meredith Vieira in New York . “I have a stack of bills. The last thing I wanted was to do this show and end up not being able to pay our bills.
RadarOnline.com was first to report that Jon had withdrawn several hundred thousand dollars from his joint bank account with Kate without her knowledge, and left her with only $1,000. RadarOnline.com confirmed with multiple sources that Kate pays the family bills and the money comes out of this account..
“I’m hanging in there. It’s hard. Every morning I don’t know what I’m going to wake up to,” Kate told Vieira. “He has gone way far off the trail; obviously, I am very upset. I can’t sleep at night. I can’t pay my bills. I think he’s receiving bad advice. I think he’s making bad decisions."
Jon appeared on Larry King Live last week, and said he wanted “Kate and I to mediate. I want us to become friends."
Last week, TLC announced it was dropping Jon’s name from the title of the show, renaming it “Kate Plus 8.” Jon responded by demanding that TLC stop production of the show.
