Jon and Kate Gosselin were to face-off in court last week but the judge’s wife passed away, postponing the hearing. The estranged couple will now see each other before an arbitrator, who may order Jon to return the money he allegedly took from Kate’s bank account. This could get nasty.
As we first reported, the wife of the judge in the case died yesterday and the scheduled hearing was postponed as a result. Now there’s an arbitration conference set for the 13th in which the issues Kate’s lawyer raised — that Jon took $230,000 from the joint account without permission — will be addressed. We’re told the arbitrator has the power to issue an injunction, forcing Jon to return the loot.
Sources also say Jon’s lawyer has filed legal papers squarely contesting Kate’s claim, alleging she’s the one who looted the account. Ultimately, the bank records will be the smoking gun, and Jon may have some trouble in that department.
We’re told Jon has struck a deal with a TV show to allow it to film his kids birthday party today — this is the same Jon who doesn’t want his kids filmed on “Kate Plus 8.” To that, Kate’s lawyer, Mark Momjian, tells TMZ “I’ve never seen a greater hallmark for hypocrisy personified.”
Is it even possible for these two to be civil at this point? Can’t they see they are only hurting their children when they fail to put the hate behind them and try to be nice? So sad really how this has all turned out. I wonder if they regret doing the TLC show?
