According to shocking court records obtained by Radar, the mother of eight filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband in March. She is demanding Jon cough up more than $132,000.
Although it remains unclear why the famed reality TV mom is demanding the money from her ex, Radar has learned Jon refuses to pay and has already lawyered up.
"He's contesting it," a source told Radar. "They're fighting it out in court."
The bitter exes have been locked in litigation for over two months. Court documents show a sheriff personally served Jon with the complaint on April 5, 2018. One day following the news, Jon responded with a petition to strike.
"It's a lot of money," an insider told Radar. "Both parties are contesting it. It's not over yet."
So far, the nasty legal battle has cost the former Jon & Kate Plus Eight stars money just for filing. Kate has already dropped over $300 for filing fees, while Jon's response cost him nearly $200, court records show.
As Radar readers know, the bitter exes are also still in a years-long custody battle over their eight children. Kate has publicly shamed Jon in the past for failing to pay a dime of child support.
Back in 2012, Radar reported the father of eight owed over $3,500 in child support payments. Kate, however voluntarily relieved Jon of child support obligations for their eight kids after the famed dad said he could not afford it.
Amid their new legal battle, fans have speculated that the former couple's daughter, Hannah, 14, is now living with Jon as she's been seen in several photos alone with with him in recent weeks.
Jon also alluded that the two reunited over Memorial Day weekend in a cryptic Instagram video.
"I'd like to thank everyone for the love and support you've showed us this week," Jon said to the camera. "Obviously, you know the situation. If you don't know the situation you should just get together with a friend or anyone that understands the situation. But I want to say Happy Memorial Day, good luck to everyone and have a safe and happy weekend."
Jon and Hannah's alleged reunion is likely a tough reality for Kate to face. In August 2017, Hannah allegedly refused to return to her mom Kate's house after spending time with her father.
In 2016, the notoriously critical mom accused Jon of acting inappropriately with Hannah in a shocking police report. Jon denied the claims.
Jon's attorney declined to comment when reached by Radar.
