Jon Gosselin accused his ex-wife, Kate, of stealing $100,000 from two of their kids’ bank accounts, the same year she purchased a $750,000 lakeside home in North Carolina

In legal documents, obtained by The Sun, the Kate, 45, confirmed that she did make two separate withdrawals of $50,000 from their teenagers Hannah and Collin’s trust accounts, but claimed it was ‘to survive’ and ‘meet her and the children’s expenses.’ 

During an interview with the British newspaper, Jon said he believed the mother-of-eight withdrawing ‘any money from these accounts without permission’ is ‘disgusting and it’s morally wrong.’

The reality star then alleged that Kate has not reimbursed her children for the loan.

‘You can’t just live off your kids’ money,’ Jon added, despite Kate’s rebuttal, in legal documents, in which she says her children actually owe her money—since she funded their private school education and various living expenses. 

In the filing, Kate claimed that the kids’ trust ‘owes’ her ‘$387,000 technically,’ but that she was ‘not looking to collect that.’

Jon also told The Sun, he only learned of the missing money when he ‘gained custody of the two children in 2018 and saw their bank statements.’

He and the mom-of-eight had set up trust accounts for their large brood to keep the money they earned on TLC and doing promotional activities safe until turning 18. 

After she was asked in court about taking the money, Kate insisted she would ‘have to keep borrowing from it to survive.’

At the time, however, she raised eyebrows for purchasing a $750,000 lakefront home in North Carolina with a private pier and swimming pool. 

The outlet also pointed out that she received $40,000 per episode for her show Kate Plus Dates, which ran for six seasons. 

Jon went on to express his anger over the situation as he feels she is a ‘hypocrite’ for ‘telling the world she has saved her children’s money when she’s actually been stealing for them.’ 

‘There’s been no remorse from her at all,’ he marveled. ‘Now, they’re 18 she thinks she can get away scott-free.’

In May, his youngest six children Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, and Leah all turned 18. 

‘I am free! Free! Free in the aspect of I have adult children now,’ Jon joked to ET, at the time.

‘Now it’s time for me to move on – dating – moving on with my own life. It’s like starting over pretty much,’ he said, a year after splitting from his longtime girlfriend  Colleen Conrad after nearly seven years together.

Jon – who reportedly stopped paying child support in 2012 – only had custody of two of his eight children, Hannah and Collin, and he said he’s ‘worked really hard in building independence in’ them. 

During that interview, Hannah, said she chose to live with her dad in Pennsylvania rather than her mom in North Carolina because she’s ‘always been closer’ with him and that they’ve ‘always had a strong good relationship.’ 

‘It’s a lot, growing up in a very busy household with lots of kids. And there’s not really a one-on-one relationship, for attention, that you have with your parent. I felt like my dad gave me that attention and a feeling like I had a good solid relationship with a parent,’ the former child star explained.

‘It was a difficult decision leaving my siblings I did not want to be separated from them or even, like, live in a different household than them. But I just feel like there was unfair treatment in my mom’s house and I just wanted to live with my dad.’

Hannah – who’s excited to be able to vote and legally drive out of state – said her relationship with Kate is ‘pretty stable’ and they ‘text each other on an average basis.’

‘She just, you know, wished me a happy birthday. You know, told me she loved me and it was great – an average birthday text,’ Gosselin noted.
