Jon Gosselin is reportedly threatening to sue his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, for primary physical custody of their children. As beepwire.com reported in November 2009 Kate Gosselin won primary custody of the couple’s eight young children after Jon and Kate Gosselin divorced.
But People.com now reports Jon Gosselin is fed up with his wife’s absenteeism (currently Kate Gosselin is competing on Dancing With the Stars) and is planning a court battle. Jon Gosselin’s attorney calls Kate an “absentee parent” and confirms his client is considering a fight to reverse the court’s custody ruling and child support decision.
Kate Gosselin has said she’s competing on Dancing With the Stars to help support her children. She’s even built a dance studio in the basement of her Pennsylvania home to limit the amount of time each week she has to be away from her twins and sextuplets. But Jon Gosselin’s attorney says it isn’t enough. “Kate Gosselin can’t have it both ways,” Anthony List said, “unless there is some balance, unless there are some opportunities for these eight children to be in her physical presence…” List says he plans to file up to three court actions on Jon Gosselin’s behalf in the next several days.
Jon Gosselin isn’t the first person to call Kate out for the amount of time she’s spending with her dance partner rather than her kids. Fellow reality star Kendra Wilkinson also publicly criticized Kate Gosselin for taking part in the show which films two days a week in Los Angeles. As beepwire.com pointed out Kate is just one of several celebrity parents on this season of Dancing with the Stars. No one else has been so highly criticized for their decision to join the show…but then again no one else has eight kids.
