The Jon and Kate Gosselin saga doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Jon says estranged wife Kate is trying to prevent him from seeing his twins on their birthday. Both Mady and Cara celebrate their 9th birthday today.
“She’s trying to prevent me from seeing my kids on their birthday because she doesn’t want to see me,” alleges the dad of eight, in a recent interview on Entertainment Tonight (ET) that aired Wednesday night.
Both Jon and Kate have to take turns living in their $1.1-million Pennsylvania home when they have custody of the kids, but Jon says he’s “just going to stay” when its his turn.
“I own the house, so I can do what I want,” he says.
A few days ago, Kate accused Jon of taking $230,000 from their joint bank account, leaving her with $1000. Kate sent Jon an email saying, “Due to recent events, it will be too stressful to the kids to have both of us here as planned. I would like to split the evening so they can see us both.” The email also limits the time that Jon can spend with the kids on Thursday from 4 to 6pm
In the interview with ET, Jon also claims that his “kids didn’t care” when they found out their parents were splitting up.”When we told them we were going to get divorced, the 5-year olds said, ‘What’s for lunch?’ The only two people who really cared were [9-year-old twins] Mady and Cara,” Jon told ET. “Cara broke down and Mady said, ‘Oh, I saw this coming.’”
