Although Kate Gosselin frequently cries poverty, she still lives pretty well despite her reality show income. She also has her upcoming dating show on the horizon, from which she'll no doubt earn a pretty penny. Might she lend a helping hand to ex-husband Jon Gosselin, who has reportedly found himself in a dire financial situation?
According to a report from RadarOnline, Jon's financial situation is so bad it could send him to jail.
"I can't afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tell me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support," the father of eight says.
It seems Jon has to choose between child support and rent this month, and he doesn't know which way to turn.
"I am a single father who's trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do Â— pay child support or rent? I need to support my kids, but I could lose my house, and I need my home to continue to have custody," he explains.
Do you think Kate will stand by and watch that happen to Jon? Will she see him lose his home and therefore forfeit visitation time with their children? Would she allow him to go to jail for choosing to pay rent instead and forgoing her child support payment? Neither of these options would be healthy ones for their kids.
"I decided to take the high road and quit reality television, and now look, I'm going to end up in jail because I can't afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money, " Jon Gosselin says.
Jon isn't thrilled about Kate's latest reality TV venture either. He believes she is putting her insatiable need to be famous before the needs of their children.
"I think this is completely ridiculous! We have eight children and they need us, she is putting reality TV and dating in front of the kids who need to have their mother," he says.
Jon Gosselin found love the old-fashioned way and he feels Kate should go that route as well. He is dating Liz Jannetta, a mom of three.
Do you think Kate Gosselin might reach out to her ex-husband and offer either money to ease his present hardship or talk to state authorities so they don't throw him in jail if he misses a child support payment? Is she really so cruel that she'd watch these things happen to the father of her eight children without extending some sort of a helping hand?
