Jon Gosselin's Lawyer Responds To Money Accusations
Reports of Jon Gosselin withdrawing large amounts of money from a joint bank account with estranged wife Kate Gosselin have sparked a new chapter for the divorcing reality TV couple. Following claims Jon withdrew the money without notifying Kate, his lawyer, Mark J. Heller, released a statement exclusively to ET.
Heller says that according to Jon's "recollection" since receiving monetary compensation from TLC for the past four and half years, "he has not withdrawn any money for his own remuneration with the exception of the past several months wherein he believes he only withdrew approximately $175,000 which is less than ten percent of the gross revenues paid the Gosselins…"
Kate's law firm made the claim, according to Heller's statement, that Jon "withdrew the money in secret." Heller argues that all withdrawals are accounted for on the bank statements for which Kate has sole access.
Heller deems it likely that when all of the money is accounted for, "Jon will be awarded substantial additional funds." ET has reached out to Kate's legal representative for comment upon receiving Heller's response overnight, but has received no response so far. Jon and his attorney Mark J. Heller will appear on "The Insider" panel on Monday. Click here to read the entire statement from Jon Gosselin's attorney.
