Jon Gosselin Dumped by Divorce Lawyer

The divorce of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars was set to conclude in October, but Jon and Kate may just have to stay married a bit longer. Charles J. Meyer, Jon Gosselin’s divorce attorney, has filed a petition in Pennsylvania to be removed as counsel scandal-plagued father of eight.

You know you have to be a grade A loser when even your divorce attorney doesn’t want to have anything to do with you.

Jon and Kate Gosselin filed for divorce in Montgomery County, PA in June. In court papers, Kate Gosselin called her relationship with Jon Gosselin “irretrievably broken.”

The two have been battling it out in private and in public ever since. Kate Gosselin said during her guest host sting on The View this week that she recently had a “meltdown” over Jon’s philandering ways. Jon, meanwhile, said on Good Morning America last week that he has grown to “despise Kate” for how she’s portrayed him in the media.

Jon Gosselin on Good Morning America – ‘I Despise Kate’

Jon Gosselin, star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, appeared on Good Morning America on Tuesday to vent his feelings about soon-to-be ex-wife Kate Gosselin. In the GMA interview, Jon Gosselin says he has grown to “despise” Kate and speculates about Kate’s alleged affair with bodyguard Steve Neild.

“I despise [her] because she’s not speaking from the heart,” Jon Gosselin told ABC’s Chris Cuomo on Good Morning America. “Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”

Ironically, Jon Gosselin doesn’t seem to have a problem dragging the couple’s dirty laundry out in public. When asked about rumors Kate Gosselin had an affair with bodyguard Steve Neild, Jon could have simply said “no comment.” Instead, he decides to throw a heaping load of fuel on the fire.

“I speculate, but I don’t know — that’s a general feel. You know, almost like when they were traveling together, I felt jealous… Whether it’s protection or not, it’s all in — it’s in the back of my mind.” Of course, Kate Gosselin didn’t mind sharing her opinion on Jon’s extra-marital activities when she appeared on The Today Show recently. Tit for tat – so to speak.

Jon Gosselin even goes so far as to accuse Kate Gosselin of stealing his wedding ring. “I don’t have the ring. So I laid it down one night. It was gone. Who else would take it?”

Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce is set to be finalized by the end of the month. More of Jon Gosselin’s whining can be seen Wednesday night on Primetime: Family Secrets at 10pm on ABC.

Jon Gosselin Slams Kate on Good Morning America

“Our relationship will never be fixed,” Jon Gosselin tells ABC News’ Chris Cuomo in his Tuesday interview on Good Morning America. “I don’t trust her anymore. I was abused,” Gosselin says. “I was beaten down …I’m not going back to that life style.”

While Kate Gosselin has blamed the breakdown of her marriage on Jon in the public media, he says the end of their marriage was Kate’s decision. “She made the first move. She knows the truth,” Jon Gosselin says on GMA. “I wish to God, she would speak from emotions … She’s not speaking from the heart. Please, the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”

“I was beaten down for so long, I couldn’t even make my own decision,” Jon Gosselin says. “And when I did, I was like, holy cow! You know? Yeah, what’s she gonna do? Divorce me? All right. Obviously. You know.” The Jon & Kate Plus 8 star even claims he tried to get Kate to go to marriage counseling, but she refused to go with him.
