This morning, Jon and Kate Gosselin went to court over the $230,000 Jon allegedly withdrew from the couple’s account.Â As reported by TMZ.com, the couple arrived separately around 8:00 am this morning.Â Jon fired back at Kate by claiming she withdrew $60,000 from the same account without permission.
A source close to Kate has now confirmed that Jon was ordered to pay back $180,000 of the $230,000. Kate’s lawyer said, “The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date.”
According to reports, Jon has until October 26 to return the money to the account to avoid contempt charges.Â Kate must also provide a detailed statement of what she has been using the couple’s money for by the same date.
Kate released the following statement: “As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children. Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues.”
