Former couple and Jon & Kate Plus 8 castmates Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin got into a heated argument over custody of one of their children at the orthodontist’s office.


The pair were arguing over the custody of one of their 13-year-old daughters on Aug. 22. The fight prompted Jon to call the police. “The call came in at 1:10 this afternoon for a verbal domestic argument… over the custody of one of their 13-year-old daughters,” said a spokesperson for the Wyomissing Police Department. “No one was arrested and the daughter did go home with the father after she expressed that was her desire to do.”

Giving more detail, the spokesperson told UsWeekly: “There was a fairly lengthy argument as far as both parents had conflicting versions of a child custody agreement. Basically, both stated something different and we referred the matter over to our county district attorney. The district attorney then reviewed it and… the district attorney’s words were that the order was sufficiently vague to interpret who was supposed to actually have custody today. Both parents read their version of the order and thought they should have had custody of the child today. So, we referred them back to the court system to try and get clarification from the court system on who’s supposed to have the child on certain days.”

Police say that they escorted Kate out of the building after the incident, and that Jon called on their service once again claiming that Kate’s attorney was threatening legal action. Once the police returned again, the Gosselins had already left the scene.

The pair divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage. They share eight children: twins Mady and Cara, 16, and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah, and Joel, all 13. The relationship between the mother and father has been tense since their split. Jon and Kate share physical custody of the kids, while Kate has full legal custody.
