It appears that reality television has become synonymous with deadbeat parents. In the latest, Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin continue to battle it out over their eight children and this time Twitter got involved!
Last week, Kate received a suspicious tweet from a follower who apparently joined twitter for the sole purpose of asking Kate about her custody issues with Jon. “is it true Jon going to court next week for nonpayment of child support?;” the user inquired. Kate was completely shocked and seemingly had no idea Jon had plans to head to court! “I don’t know if he’s going to court but wouldn’t surprise me…. How do you know this stuff?!?;” Kate asked in reply.
The user went on to accuse Jon of being a deadbeat dad, saying he was months behind on child support; revealing that Jon owes $40 per day for all eight of his children and his monthly payment is a mere $1200.
As for how the user was privy to this very private information – she claims that her niece works in the PA court system and she saw the file. Well, um… seriously I think this spells firing for a certain niece. Aunt of the year, right here!
To her credit, the former Kate Plus 8 star refused to discuss the situation, telling the user: “Woah….I’m not allowed to talk about orders from the court.…”
The user, who has no identifying information, seemingly created the account for the sole purpose of revealing this information.
Jon did not address the accusations, but did take to twitter to advise others not to ask him about the situation. “stop posting about stupid court sh*t. Consider your sources people. Dont need drama during the holiday. Thx,” he wrote.
TELL US – IS JON A DEADBEAT DAD? WAS THIS TWITTER ACCOUNT LEGIT OR STARTED JUST TO SLAM JON?
