It appears that things have gone from bad to worse for Kate Gosselin.
And now the question is:
How bad will the situation get?!?
According to In Touch Weekly, the infamous mother of eight recently lost a court case in which she was demanding $132,000 in child support from ex-husband Jon Gosselin.
As previously reported, Gosselin filed a lawsuit against Jon to recover money owed to him since 2012.
The Sun previously branded Kate “desperate” and insisted she was “desperate” for this pay day… based on how dire her financial situation has become.
“Kate hasn’t had a job other than reality TV for 17 years,” a source told The Sun this month.
“It’s quite clear that Kate has no interest in living a normal life and having a real job.”
Inside sources have indicated that Kate Gosselin earned $250,000 per episode of Jon & Kate Plus Eight.
However, the show went off the air in July 2017 and the reality star has made little to no efforts to make money away from the cameras since then.
Gosselin has a nursing license (which expires in 2025), but she returned to television this year for the first time since 2019 to appear on Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.
He was then eliminated in the very first episode, presumably costing him the normal salary the cast receives each week moving forward.
Kate is the mother of eight children, although two of her children live with her ex-husband.
The other six are now going off to college, which means Kate is living alone… but technically she doesn’t have to support them anymore.
“As the legal battle continues, she doesn’t know how she’s going to make ends meet,” an insider told In Touch on November 16, adding of Gosselin:
“He’s desperate right now.”
With one notable exception, Gosselin has said almost nothing publicly recently.
After son Colin accused them of child abuse, the infamous parents released a statement that said in part:
,[Collin’s] The brothers and sisters and I have not been directly involved in his life due to his history of unpredictable behavior and violent tendencies towards us.”
He said the teenager “has received multiple psychiatric diagnoses over the past few years”, adding that she had had multiple “assaults/outbursts”, one of which involved a “weapon”, which ended at the time:
“That’s all I have to say on this matter and I will not discuss the subject further.”
