The Gosselins Are About to Get Way, Way More Gross

For the past few months -- or the past few years, depending on your point of view -- Jon and Kate Gosselin have been making a big, huge, awful mess of their public lives. Maybe their private lives too, but let's just focus on what we know for now, OK? And what we know is that the kids don't seem overly fond of their mother or father, Jon and Kate are weird and wacky in their own special ways, and Jon is now trying to get full custody of all eight of them kids. No, really.
Jon gave this quote to his BFF, "In Touch," about his feelings:
“They live in fear of Kate. Every time I see them, they tell me they want to live with me. First, I’m going to file for an emergency petition for contempt ... The next step is to fight for custody. It’s the only way I can protect the younger six. Regardless of what the judge decides, I have to at least try. I just wish Kate would wake up, realize how she’s behaving — and change her ways.”
Apparently Jon's issue is that Kate doesn't abide by the custody agreement that they'd originally made, that Kate usually leaves the kids with a babysitter instead of giving Jon the option to watch them, and that Kate hasn't let Jon see one of his kids (just the one, for whatever reason) since August. All that comes from Jon's lawyer, who spoke to E! News about the situation. So yeah, it's probably going to get pretty darn messy.
Bonus mess: Jon's lawyer is Mark Heller. Does that name sound familiar? It should, because that guy was Lindsay Lohan's lawyer for a short time. And Lindsay Lohan now has a little baby brother that was birthed by Jon Gosselin's ex-girlfriend. What a small world, right? A small, creepy world.
