Jon Gosselin recently tried to stop his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, from taking the couple’s eight kids to Australia for New Year’s to film for their TLC reality show Kate Plus Eight, but the judge ruled that since the trip was work-related, it was okay. Keep reading for more details.
The decision to allow Kate Gosselin and the Gosselin kids’ trip to Australia was made in a secret closed door hearing at a Berks County Court in Pennsylvania this month. Jon Gosselin, who according to a source close to the father of eight had plans with his children for New Year’s, asked the judge to stop Kate from taking them on the trip, which is being paid for by TLC.
“But the judge ruled that because it was for work it was okay. Jon had plans to get together with his kids and friends for New Year, but now he will not see them until they return in the middle of January,” said the source.
“He was scheduled to have them this weekend, but there was nothing he could do as the decision was taken out of his hands.
“Kate told Jon about the trip, and when he did not agree it was decided that the judge should intervene and the ruling went in her favor.
“He is trying to put a brave face on it and has explained the situation to his own family and friends, but obviously not being with his kids for New Year is a big disappointment for him.
“But they all respect him for trying to stand up to Kate and for fighting for what he thinks is right for his kids, too.”
“Jon’s friends are determined that he will have a good time at New Year even if his kids are not around.
“It is most likely that he will be staying in Pennsylvania to be with his girlfriend Ellen Ross plus family and friends as they see in 2011 together.”
