Kate Gosselin Claims Jon Took $200,000 From Her Account

Kate Gosselin is accusing estranged husband Jon of taking $200,000 from their joint account.

Her attorney, Marty Singer, says Jon didn't inform Kate that he was going to withdraw a large sum of money from their account, even though the court had told them that could not be done without the other's approval.

"They have not responded to our messages. I'm sure he will respond by going on another TV show," says Singer.

He expects his client will go to Pennsylvania court to suggest Jon be held in contempt of court for violating the existing court order and force him to return the money to the account.

"Of course she's upset," says Singer.

He says Kate found out about the withdrawal after receiving notices from the bank. Apparently Jon took out $200,000, to leave only about $1,000 in the particular account.

The withdrawal was made soon after TLC announced last week that it would be cutting Jon from the couple's reality series to focus on Kate and the kids.

Jon shut down production days at the end of last week after saying he would no longer allow his children to appear on the show.


Jon Gosselin has responded and claims Kate is 'hiding money'.

"I've never taken any money out because over 10 years, Kate handled all the banking," he tells 'The Insider'. "Over the past four years of doing the show, we accrued $2,250,000. She says in the past week I took 230,000. I have withdrawn roughly $177,000 over the course of a year, which is less than 10 percent of what we made. That's like my paycheck."

"She's hiding money," he says. "We have 11 bank accounts. That was just our joint account. She had a best-selling book. Where's that million dollars?"

"I believe she's incriminating herself and not thinking clearly. She's wanting me to look bad. I didn't want these things to come public. I didn't want this to be embarrassing for her."
