Jon Gosselin took to Twitter today to defend himself against a recent story by Radar Online. Yesterday, Radar Online reported that the reality TV star had fallen behind with his child support payments that would assist his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, in providing for their eight children.
According to records listed on the Pennsylvania Department of Child Welfare’s website obtained by Radar Online, he has an “arrears balance” of $3,557.06.
Using Twitter to respond, Jon said: “There is no story, I pay CS. The state site is my recurring balance. so guess what, it will always be there. Every month. Paid in full.” “Great digging up a story about nothing. Find something else to write about. I pay my water bill too, why dont you make that a story. morons”
E!OnLine is reporting that they also obtained these records and questioned attorney Tony Slaten regarding this matter.
Slaten stated to E! News that the “arrears balance” listed for Jon is in fact “an order by the court to pay your support and a noncompliance [with it] is a contempt of court.” Because the amount Jon owes isn’t huge, Slaten says the former reality star “could just be shortly behind and he is just about to pay it in the next day or so.”
Laws vary from state to state on consequences for failing to pay child support, however Jon Gosselin seems confident that he has this under control and there are no issues.
