Cops were called on Jon and ex-wife Kate Gosselin, after the two started a fight at an orthodontist’s office, on Tuesday. The scandal erupted when they both showed up to pick-up one of their daughters from the doctor’s appointment.
40-year-old Jon and 42-year-old Kate Gosselin have never been friendly since their divorce, over 7 years ago. However, it has been a while since things got heated as much as they did on Tuesday, August 21.
According to TMZ, the two parents came to pick-up one of their 13-year-old sextuplets from the orthodontist’s office. They started arguing about which of them would the child be going home with and the argument turned ugly. Cops were called at around 1 p.m.
Police representatives have confirmed to E! News that the reason for which officers were dispatched to the dental office was “verbal domestic dispute over child custody involving one minor (Female/13 years old).”
The police made no arrests and the child left with Jon.
Neither of the two parents have commented on the incident yet.
According to the custody settlement, both Jon and Kate Gosselin have physical custody of the eight kids, but only Kate has legal custody. Jon, who admitted he was working as a stripper in Atlantic City back in March, claims that he has not seen all his eight kids for years. He is adamant that he has particularly not seen son Collin, as he has been told by Kate that the boy in enrolled in a special needs program and cannot be reached.
Jon and Kate Gosselin married in 1999 and separated in 2009. Subsequently, Jon left the reality show that made them famous, Jon & Kate Plus 8. The show still airs, but has changed names, becoming Kate Plus 8.
The former couple shares twin daughters Cara and Madelyn, who are 16-years-old, and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, and Leah, who are 13.
