Kate Gosselin Responds To Jon's Broke Claims Over Child Support

Jon Gosselin gave a recent interview where he said that he’s choosing between paying his rent and paying child support for his eight kids with Kate. He said, “I can’t afford to pay my rent and the domestic relations staff tells me they will put me in jail unless I pay my child support. I am a single father who’s trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do – 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.”

Kate was apparently left baffled by his claims because she has already dropped the whole child support thing. Her attorney, Cheryl Young, said that Jon is free and clear on the child support issue. She said, “I read Jon’s statement on RadarOnline.com and was quite surprised to read that he claims to be struggling to keep his child support payments current. As of April 27, 2012, Kate voluntarily relieved Jon of all current and future child support obligations for their eight children.”

She went on to say, “Kate and Jon talked and worked through all of these issues and she withdrew the child support. Currently, he is only paying a small amount on arrears for support that was not paid prior to the April date when she dropped support. Those payments will soon end meaning that Kate is the sole supporter of the parties’ children. The last thing Kate ever wanted was for the children to see their father in dire financial straits.”

Why are they doing this publicly? That’s what we want to know. Why are they babbling on to the media about stuff that should logically be kept private?
