Radar Online has an exclusive interview with Kate Gosselin’s attorney up today disputing Jon Gosselin’s claims that he is broke because of his child support payments.
Cheryl Young, the attorney that represented Kate Gosselin in her ongoing legal matters with Jon Gosselin, has given this statement to Radar Online:
“I read Jon’s statement on RadarOnline.com and was quite surprised to read that he claims to be struggling to keep his child support payments current. As of April 27, 2012, Kate voluntarily relieved Jon of all current and future child support obligations for their eight children.”
Yesterday, Radar Online reported that in an interview with Star magazine Jon Gosselin revealed:
“I can’t afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tell me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support,” Jon, 35, told Star in an exclusive interview. “I am a single father who’s trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do — pay child support or rent? I need to support my kids, but I could lose my house, and I need my home to continue to have custody.
“I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I’m going to end up in jail because I can’t afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money, ” the former TLC star complained.
Chery Young did explain that Jon Gosselin is still responsible for any child support that was not paid prior to the April date when Kate absolved Jon of any financial responsibility regarding his eight children. She also said that there was a small amount of arrears that was not paid prior to April. A previous story on Radar Online shows that amount being $3557.06.
