Jon Gosselin Did Steal, Must Return $180K To Kate


Jon Gosselin must pay back $180,000 he took from the account he shares with Kate.

Jon and Kate were at it again this morning, fighting and making headlines.

The warring almost-exes went to court today to battle over $230,000 Kate says Jon took from their joint bank account. Jon came right back at her, saying she took $60,000 from his personal account earlier this year.

According to TMZ, the judge ordered Jon to pay back $180,000. "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date," said John's lawyer.

Kate has to detail what she used the money for.

Kate was pleased with the decision, saying, "As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children. Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues."

John has to pay the money by October, 26, when the couple is due in court again.

What's next for the Gosselins? More publicity, that's for sure. Besides that we don't dare predict, but you'll certainly read about it here on Celeb Love.
