Jon returns money to family bank account

Posted: 12:30 PM ET

art_jon_gosselin_giJon Gosselin is now in "complete compliance" with a court order that he return $180,000 he took from a joint bank account with his wife, says his attorney, Mark Heller – but, according to Heller, Kate Gosselin is not.

"Unless something happens today [with Kate] she will be going through contempt proceedings Monday," lawyer Mark Heller told PEOPLE on Friday.

Mark Momjian, Kate's divorce attorney, could not be reached for comment. Kate had been ordered to account for the approximately $55,000 she had withdrawn for household expenses.

Both sides filed contempt motions against each other for allegedly violating a divorce arbitrator's guidelines for how the money from a joint account should be spent.

On Oct. 13, a Montgomery County, Penn., judge ordered both sides to return any money that wasn't used appropriately. Jon was ordered to return $180,000, but Heller would not confirm whether that's how much he returned, saying instead, "I can tell you that we’ve done what we needed to do to extricate Jon from any issues concerning contempt."

Heller went on to say that attorney Charlie Meyer, who had removed himself from the proceedings in September, is once again representing Jon in the divorce. Heller was not licensed to represent Jon in the state of Pennsylvania, and a petition for him to be granted permission to do so was recently withdrawn by the attorney who had sponsored it.

Since Kate was crying "highway robbery" when Jon withdrew money from the bank account, it's her turn to return the $55,000 she took out!

If you want to know where Kate's $55,000 went, just ask her plastic surgeons, hair stylist, makeup artist, manicurist, clothes designer... etc, etc, etc........need I say any more.

The courts need to sieze all monies and place it in a trust for the children with a court appointed executor so that neither parent can get to it. After all, It was the children who earned all this money!


Tessa   October 23rd, 2009 7:54 pm ET

To Dodie–You're absolutely right!!!! The court should provide some kind of protection for these children and put the money in some kind of trust fund so the Kate and Jon won't be able to spend the money so frivolously!

Kate is a controlling freak and used her children to become big money earners! Those kids earned the money which afforded Kate to have the luxuries of plastic surgeries, expensive beauty salons to bleach her hair blonde, etc.! I vote that Kate needs to go and find herself a real job instead of using her children in a reality show. Let the children have a normal childhood and participate in normal activities with their friends instead of having them work in the entertainment world at such a young age!

If Kate and Jon don't get their act together, the judge will take care of the situation himself!

what a joke kate is.... she is a witch with a capital "B" .....that money was made by both of them and lets not forget the kids.. how much did KATE give them ????@ dodiecalif. right no !!!! kate does not look like she is cutting back on her spending,hair, nails, tanning salon, makeup etc....

Such a horrible man!


alex lyrics   October 23rd, 2009 10:13 pm ET

I don't care about Kate being the witch that she is called, or the verbaly abusive.
I do however get pissed off when a father doesn't respect his kids and family enough to keep his pants up while in public.

And i als got pissed off when he took that amount of money out of the family account..

We have too many dead beat dads, and to show this on Tv and tabliods pisses me off.

He makes all men look bad, and we are not all like this.
If a man is having an affair, he should at least protect his family from it.

HE DID NOT

All I can see is a coward, who is star struck.

And two parents who are money hungry, and I am sick of both of them.

They have beautiful children who deserve better and deserve more than the cards they have been dealt.


Gerald Jolly   October 23rd, 2009 11:01 pm ET

Dodie, you're so right.


bellablue   October 23rd, 2009 11:53 pm ET

And out of all of this contention, what becomes of (8) beautiful children who deserved a much better life than what they now are going through! They will NEVER live a normal life as we do!! Some media outlet, maazine, National Enquirer, or other get rich quick scheme, will be constantly ruling the life of the parents! And therefore, the children will ALWAYS be drawn into the fray! I truly believe it was very irresponsible for Jon and Kate to have these children and to expose them to the entire world, IF they were not going to raise them as "normal" kids! I can tell by the look on all of their precious faces they are confused, angry, unhappy, wound-up, and absolutely devastated!! How many more generations will it take to make people realize children deserve TWO parents who love each other and can work out conflict which happens on occasion. Perhaps the Gosselins would have survived if it had not been for money$$$$$$ It seems that money is indeed the root of ALL EVIL!!!

GETTING SMART ON AFGHANISTAN–NEW STRATEGY–JOB TRAINING MAKES SENSE. WHY NOT CREATE A RESERVE-RETRAINING WORK FORCE FOR AMERICA SO FIFTEEN MILLION AMERICANS CAN BE RE-TRAIN FOR NEW JOBS? MAKES SENSE. IF JOBS WILL WORK IN AFGHANISTAN, THEY WILL WORK BETTER IN AMERICA. WE SHOULD BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HOME GROWN TERRORIST THAN THAN THOSE IN AFGHANISTAN. GETTING AMERICANS KILLED CHASING WILD GEESE IS ABSURD. DOESN'T OBAMA HAVE ENOUGH SENSE TO KNOW WHEN TO SAY NO AND JUST TURN AROUND AND FLY HOME. TAKE THE HEAT! YOU WILL WIN IN ALL PLACES–AT HOME AND AROUND THE REST OF THE WORLD. ONE COULD ASK, WHAT GOOD IS A HARVARD EDUCATION? UNEMPLOYMENT WILL BE THE DOWN FALL OF AMERICA. WHY WAIT FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN WHEN IT CAN BE PREVENTED BY CREATING A RESERVE-RETRAINING WORK FORCE? Read more internetfreepress.com

Alex, you are the man! The only reason this got sleazy is because Jon Gosslin screwed around on his wife, waiting for her to go out of town and getting busted by the tabloids. Jon and Kate was a family program. The family was going along just fine, then Jon did what he did with a 22 year old, leaving a bar.. The magazine stories from the girlfriend's brother, yes, they has sex in our apartment. I heard them.

Then he waited until after a Larry King Live interview to go to the bank and empty out the family account. There is a reason this man has been called The Most Hated Man in America.

When the divorce was impending, Jon didn't move close to his kids so he could see them every day, get a reasonable apartment, and a real job. He moved to New York in a $5000 a month apartment. I think he believes that because he's been on magazine covers for screwing around on his wife, that he is some kind of highly desirable celebrity, and that's not true.

TLC, when they decided to ditch Jon, they offered to pay him the same money he was making from the program, with stipulations. Control your behavior in public. He decided not to do that.

For me, I don't know. I really don't know. Should the kids leave what should have been a life of quiet prosperity because their dad was a creep? Was No Job Jon ever capable of supporting his family? I don't know. I do hope the best for the kids and for Kate. This was never her fault, or their fault. They are just paying the price.

RE : LMB

Yeah Jon is an idiot, he should have taken the money and kept his mouth shut.

$5000 per month in NY, man I lived there.

He needs alot of money to live that lifestyle
