Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin appeared on The Today Show Monday nearly in tears after estranged husband Jon Gosselin allegedly cleaned out the couple’s joint bank account of $230,000.
â€œHe took $230,000 of the $231,000 we had,â€ Kate told Meredith Vieira on The Today Show. â€œI have a stack of bills. The last thing I wanted was to do this show and end up not being able to pay our bills.â€
Jon Gosselin reportedly cleared out the joint bank account after a long week of battling with Kate Gosselin and TLC over the future of Jon & Kate Plus 8. TLC announced recently they would be renaming the show to Kate Plus 8 and refocusing the series to feature Kate Gosselin raising her eight children as a single mother. Jon Gosselin responded by ordering TLC to “cease and desist” filming of the couple’s children and banned the network from the family home.
â€œIt has ended our income and our paychecks and our opportunities,â€ Kate told Vieira. â€œI wish Jon would think more about it.â€
Kate Gosselin said the children’s income from the show, however, remains protected. â€œFinancially, the kids are protected. They have the fund that I set up for them … It is secure and substantial … and it is safe.”
