Jon and Kate File For Divorce

According to People.com Jon and Kate filed documents to initiate a legal split at the Bucks County Courthouse in Reading, Pa., this afternoon.

This will not come as a surprise to anyone who has watched the show. The pair, who long maintained a tense relationship, have recently been divided on whether or not to continue their TV show, with Jon wanting a less high-profile life, while Kate appeared to remain committed to staying in the public eye.

Today, Jon told RadarOnline.com that he has “no idea” when Kate would be coming home.

“I’ve been by myself for four days,” he said. But when asked if he’s happy she’s gone, he said: “No, because I’m down a person.”

He did say the kids were anxious for their mom to return, although when asked if he knew where she is and when she’d return to their $1.1-million estate, he answered “nope” to both.

Additionally, Jon gave another impromptu press conference to fans and reporters Sunday afternoon in fron of his property.

He told onlookers that he wasn’t speaking to Deanna Hummel — the school teacher with whom was reported to have had an affair with — “as much” since “the things went down.”

Very Sad. No one wants to see a family torn apart.

  • I DON’T USUALLY WATCH THE SHOW, BUT I WATCHED A LITTLE BIT OF IT. MY HEART BROKE WHEN I HEARD THEY WERE BREAKING UP THE HOME. I HEARD THEM SAY THAT THE KIDS WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITH THEM APART BECAUSE OF ALL THE ARGUMENTS….I HAVE HEARD MANY PEOPLE JUSTIFY DIVORCE LIKE THAT. THE TRUTH IS THAT DIVORCE WILL BE MUCH HARDER ON THE KIDS. THEY HAVE NO IDEA OF THE AMOUNT OF ANGUISH AND HURT DOWN THE ROAD. AND ANY NEW PARTNER JON OR CATE HAVE LATER ON WILL NOT LOVE THOSE EIGHT BEAUTIFUL LITTLE ONES LIKE THEY WILL. I THINK JON AND CATE ARE BEING SELF SERVING AND HAVE TALKED THEMSELVES INTO THINKING IT IS ALL FOR THE KIDS. I PRAY GOD WILL KEEP THIS FAMILY TOGETHER.

  • i love the show,i have never missed an episoded.i kinda wasnt surprised but i did cry when i heard them announce they were separating.its devastating to the children and jon and kate.im hoping they can reconciliate and get things back to where they were.

  • I have loved this show from the start–but, not surprised at the breakup. One can’t expect a relationship to last with the constant put downs, smacking, and screaming. Being in the public limelight constantly has to add to the distress. I would love to see marital counseling introduced to this couple who have 8 young children who need more security than the MONEY from the show can provide. And, THE NANNY could also be brought on for the sake of these kids. The meltdowns should be brought under control—the temper tantrums are getting out of control. To see all the screaming and hitting is….Well, looks alot like the way Mom has acted toward Dad for a long time. What a sad legacy to pass on to the kids. Jon’s behavior is not excused, but, did Kate really think he would never tire of the put downs. Please remember actions really speak loudly to the children.
