Oh, this is not good. Jon Gosselin, according to sources, is wildly spending money on himself and is afraid the gravy-train might be over. Maybe that’s why he’s hoping to score his own reality show?
Insiders claim that when Jon and Kate were together, Jon was on allowance, and the amount was decided by Kate. Now that the father-of-eight is “single,” he is going through money like it grows on trees (or reality shows).
A source said, “Jon wants easy money now that he’s gotten a taste of celebrity. He doesn’t want to go back to an everyday job. He’s out to cook up a new reality TV deal or even his own book deal. Now that they are divorcing, he has to start generating a new income that does not involve Kate.”
The pal added, “He’s worried that Kate will end up with all of their money. Plus, he also knows that he has eight children and his money will have to support them for the next 15-plus years. Jon knows how strong-willed Kate can be and he wants to make sure that he doesn’t ever have to rely on her again for his money.”
However, since separating from Kate, Jon has been careless with money, spending it like there’s an endless supply. Jon, hello? EIGHT KIDS, remember?
The source revealed that Jon’s money “is all for him. Jon is pretty selfish and he’s wildly spending on himself. He feels as if Kate held him back and now he can enjoy his life.
“Jon is blowing through the money fast and knows it won’t last forever. So Michael [Lohan] is helping set him up for the future.” Great person to get advice from Jon… have you read anything about Michael Lohan? Probably not the best person to get “family” advice from. Just pointing that out. And perhaps this is why Kate controlled their finances?
Jon had better get a grip on his purse (OK, not purse, but you know what I mean) strings, because with eight little kids to raise, he’s going to need all the money he can get!
Nothing wrong with a dad (or mom) having some fun or spending money on themselves, but at least be sensible.
