Jon & Kate Gosselin's Big Announcement: Divorce!
Documents were filed at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, Penn., on Monday afternoon.
This announcement appeared to be a long time coming after their contentious relationship continued to be filled with more and more tension.
Kate made a statement, saying, “”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. 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 his own statement, saying, “”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.”
We wish the best for Jon & Kate and their eight adorable children during this difficult time.
Tune into Jon & Kate Plus 8 tonight @ 9PM ET/PT for all of the details.
