Contrary to what most people around the world likely think, Kate Plus 8 is still a TV show.
It airs new episodes and everything.
Similarly, despite neither its star nor her estranged husband being in the news very much anymore, Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin remain at extreme odds with each other.
According to police in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, a call was made on Tuesday afternoon regarding a custody dispute between the ex-spouses and reality TV co-stars.
As reported by TMZ, E! News and other outlets, cops were called to an orthodontist’s office around 1:10 p.m. due to a “verbal domestic dispute over child custody involving one minor (Female/13 years old).”
One of the controversial parents took their child to her appointment, but then the other showed up and an argument broke out over who would be driving her home.
“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,” a Wyomissing Police Department spokesperson told Entertainment Tonight, adding:
“No one was arrested and the daughter did go home with the father after she expressed that was her desire to do.”
Married for a decade until their divorce in 2009, the Gosselins rose to fame as the lead cast members on Jon & Kate Plus 8.
They starred on the series along with their eight children:
Mady and Cara, twins who are both 16; and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel, each 13.
Tension has existed between Jon and Kate ever since their split, but they have operated under the same custody arrangement for seven years now.
Details are mostly kept under wraps, although both parents share custody in some fashion.
Kate recently made negative headlines after an episode of Kate Plus 8 aired in which the sextuplets celebrated their 13th birthdays.
All except Collin, that is.
The young teenager was missing because he’s in some mystery facility with so-called “behavior specialists.”
This is perfectly fine and maybe even healthy for the child, but Kate has seemingly just gone on with her life and her show, shrugging over the fact that one of her sons isn’t part of the family, not even for milestone occasions.
Jon, meanwhile, has done very little for years.
But he did sort of perform at a strip club this spring, so that’s something, we suppose.
Both Jon and Kate are very annoying.
We don’t know exactly how their latest tiff was left, but, as always, we hope they can keep things as amicable as possible moving forward.
There are quite a few kids in the picture here.
