Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin, of the TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8, publicly announced on Monday night's hour-long special that they are divorcing after eight kids (five-year-old sextuplets and eight-year-old twin girls) and ten years of marriage. An onscreen graphic at the end of tonight’s show disclosed that legal proceedings to dissolve the Gosselins' marriage have begun in a Pennsylvania court. After months of speculation, rumored affairs and me not caring to much, People magazine is broke the news that reality television stars Jon and Kate Gosselin are divorcing. Apparently Jon and Kate Gosselin couldn't even wait for tonight's episode to air and filed divorce papers this afternoon, according to People:
...the 10-year marriage of Jon & Kate Plus Eight's stars Kate and Jon Gosselin appears to be coming to an end, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE.I can still remember when TLC was a well respected science and educational channel... That was ten years ago and this is now. Lately, the only thing you can learn from TLC is not to marry a crazy controlling bitch like Kate Gosselin. After watching an episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 for the first 5 minutes its surprising that Jon didn't kill himself years ago. Why would anyone get married after watching TLC showcasing the world's most fucked up marriage? Anyway, with all the alimony and child support checks Jon Gosselin will also be filing for bankruptcy very soon.
Documents to initiate a legal split were filed at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, Penn., Monday afternoon.
Fans who have watched the couple's popular TLC show - or read the voluminous coverage of the Gosselin marriage in the press - will hardly be surprised: The duo had long maintained a tense relationship, with Jon recently telling PEOPLE he wanted a less high-profile life, while Kate appeared to remain committed to their TV career.
“Over the course of this weekend, Jon’s activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children,” Kate said in a statement Monday night. “While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children.”
Jon released a statement of his own, in it says: “This afternoon, Kate filed for divorce. Our kids are still my number one priority. I love them and want to make sure they stay happy, healthy and safe. My job is being the best, most supportive and loving father that I can be to my kids, and not being married to Kate doesn’t change that.”
“This will be a difficult transition for all of us,” Jon’s statement continued, “but Kate and I will work out a schedule that enables our kids to have plenty of quality time with both of us at home in Pennsylvania. In terms of my marriage, it’s no secret that the past six months or so have been very difficult for Kate and me. We are no different than other couples and parents who are facing a crossroads in their marriage. I am of course deeply saddened that we are divorcing.”
Jon, who admitted that he “wasn’t always the greatest communicator,” added, “I’m excited and hurt at the same time because I have a new chapter in my life — I’m only 32 years old.”
