Kate Gosselin has been keeping busy working on Dancing With The Stars, and ex-husband Jon Gosselin is now concerned that Kate is spending too much time away from their eight children. An attorney for Jon, 33, told TMZ that the worried dad plans to file an emergency petition to take “absentee mom” Kate to court and gain primary physical custody of their children and also reverse the spousal support, which is costing Jon $22,000 per month as of now.
A source close to Jon revealed to US Weekly that he “seems genuinely upset that the kids are growing up with strangers most of the time. Even when Kate’s at the house, she has a nanny there to do all the work. Jon is anxious to find a place of his own close to the kids so he can have a little more stability for them.”
Kate and DWTS partner Tony Dovolani have been rehearsing at the Gosselin family home, where a daycare has been set up for the children. Kate just recently admitted to US Weekly that she is working to support her family but would love to stay home, saying, “I hate being away from my kids. If it could all go away because I was financially set and I could stay home and I could bake and cook from scratch, like I love to do, I’d so be there.”
The Gosselin’s, who were married for 10 years, are parents to 9-year-old twins Cara Nicole, Madelyn Kate, and sextuplets Alexis Faith, Hannah Joy, Aaden Jonathan, Collin Thomas, Leah Hope, and Joel Kevin who will soon turn 6.
