Jon & Kate Gosselin's Big Announcement: Divorce!

Jon & Kate Gosselin's Big Announcement: Divorce!

Jon & Kate Gosselin have filed for divorce after ten years of marriage, according to sources close to People.

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.

Wow…big shock here. Very sad for the kids. I am happy for Jon though. He can have some peace from the media ***** Kate.

oh no! and now whats going on with the kids? they’re going to be with kate?

# 3

aww sh!t I hate divorce

# 5

oh no, poor kids. their mom is a greedy *****

# 6

Not surprised, their marriage seemed to be becoming more and more pressurised.

# 7

what a s*umb*g for abandoning your wife and 8 small children.
i hope you sit when you have quiet time to yourself and reflect on what a moron you are for choosing your pants over your kids.

I believe Kate has been planning this for quite some time. Once she realized she could make it without Jon she turned into a major ****** in order to push him away. She probably was the one that leaked the story about his affair.

Not surprised.

Kate is Type-A, irrational and angry.

Jon’s a major loser who’s been p*ssy-whipped for 10 years. The guy is buying an apartment at Trump Place in New York thats only 700 sq-feet.
What that hell is a grown-ass man with 8 kids and two dogs doing with a NYC bachelor pad? Get over yourself Jon. You’re new earrings, motorcycle, smoking and Ed Hardy gear isn’t going to help you re-live your youth. Just make it even more evident that you’re a major douche-nozzle!

SORRY TO HEAR THIS. HOPE ALL WORKS OUT AS WELL AS IT CAN FOR YOU AND THE KIDS.

you know.. @ 06/22/2009 at 5:53 pm

Sad and now they are going to continue the show. I guess it will make great TV to see 8 kids deal with the destruction of their family.. lots of crying and where is Mommy and where is Daddy.. Yeah TLC..the rating will be through the roof..

I think it is time to shut the cameras down. I’m sure they will spin it and say that the kids will be their first thought and that the kids will not see much of a difference. Jon will be there as always and Kate will continue her “job” of promoting… But what about the “job’ of PARENTS..

Such a sad thing .. I for one am not going to watch. Somebody has to say enough is enough. Won’t make a difference, but at least I will know.

Jon and Kate live in BERKS County, Pa…NOT BUCKS. Is this even true?

I’m not as shocked as I would have been if they’d backed out of the show for the sake of their children. Those poor kids.

OMG .. wow I hope they are able to get through this and just be happy for the kids!! Oh man this is sad. I’ve been watching J&K+8 for a while now and really fell in love with the kids. Sigh .. hope they work through the divorce properly and not make things difficult. Think of the children!!

This is so sad and selfish. I should not judge as I haven’t walked in their shoes but it seems to me with eight kids they should be trying counceling before shattering this family.

very sad… but im not surprised!

I am shocked, just shocked. No one saw this coming, no one. *rolls eyes*

Hope Kate doesn’t abuse the children since she won’t have the slapping bag around anymore. Kate needs to get help for her narcissism, it is getting progressively worse. Shame on Jon for not getting help for his children, both of them for exploiting.

I don’t think we should feel sorry for the kids…I think that Jon especially, is a better dad when he’s by himself. He seems to be 100% hands on, lets them get dirty, spill stuff, walk in the rain without raingear, let them keep messes while they go. THAT IS HEALTHY…regarless of divorce. Kate will always be Kate. I feel more sorry for the kids as she will for sure get more handy helpers to nanny her kids…she hates being all alone with those kids. She complains every dam second.
Divorce is not good. But niether is two unhealthy, unhappy parents. Espeically ones who bicker and put down the other.
I’d really like to see this show get cancelled. It’s not even fun to watch anymore. Good luck.
Wonder what happens to the house????

so telling. the jenhags have parked their double-wide a$$es on JJ PRAYING for brad and angie to break up and not giving a rat’s azz about THEIR children. but are so sorry for the reality wh*re’s kids.

kate can do better than this push over of a man….hes fat, balding and has a face you just want to punch. kate needs a man that will challenge her. plus i would never want a man with 8 kids sorry

SORRY 4 KATE @ 06/22/2009 at 6:07 pm

I just want to pray for Mady and Cara and the sextuplets as they have to hear everything tht goes on at the household….you are in my prayers

Couldn’t they at leasl try counseling, or was this just a scam of a marriage all along?

Is it really that much of a shocker to anybody? SURPRISE SURPRISE!

I was really hoping that it would be that they were ending the show, but I’m not exactly surprised. I feel bad for the kids. Not gonna lie, I think Kate will fight tooth and nail for primary custody, just to stick it to John, and I can’t see John fighting that hard against Kate because he seems like he just wants all the drama over as soon as possible.

I wish they had ended the show and at least given counseling a shot, but oh well. They really should quit the show now though, instead of dragging those poor kids through the mud for the sake of money.
