Kate Gosselin has some explaining to do after her children's trust was depleted of $100,000.
Jon Gosselin, meanwhile, has accused Kate of blatant theft, telling The Sun his ex is living off their children's trust and dubbing her a "hypocrite."
In newly-unveiled 2019 legal documents, the "Kate Plus 8" star admitted to twice withdrawing $50,000 from the kids trust, adding, "I will have to keep borrowing from it to survive."
In fact, she claimed her eight children owe her money to make amends for her paying for their private school.
"So I mean I'm not looking to collect that but I borrowed $100,000 from the kids' trust," she claimed in the legal docs. "And it owes me $387,000 technically."
In the court filing, Kate said that assets from Hannah's and Collin's accounts were being used to "meet her and the children's expenses." Interestingly enough, Kate ended up buying a $750,000 lakeside home in North Carolina that same year. Jon insisted that Kate has yet to reimburse the children's accounts and said her justification for dipping into the trust is "crazy."
Hannah and Collin have been living with their dad since August 2021. Alexis, Aaden, Joel and Leah all live with Kate. The pair's older twins, Cara and Madelyn, are in college.
"It's disgusting and it's morally wrong," Jon told The Sun of the money matter. "Parents are not supposed to withdraw any money from these accounts without permission and without drawing up paperwork that they will pay it back — but she has produced no paperwork and no payments have been made. You can't just live off your kids' money."
"It makes me feel disgusted. She has been on TV telling the world she has saved her children's money when she's actually been stealing from them – she's a hypocrite," he continued. "There's been no remorse from her at all. Now they're 18 she thinks she can get away scott-free."
Jon said Colin and Hannah called their mother about the missing money recently.
"Hannah and Collin are really mad," he said. "Hannah called Kate the other day about it but Kate didn't seem to care. I don't know what the other children know about this money. I want them to know about this. Now Hannah and Collin are 18 – it's up to them to file a civil suit against her to get the money back. It's an obscene amount of money and it's their money."
