Jon Gosselin left a kitten behind when he was evicted from his Pennsylvania home, and the action has outraged people. The action has riled up people on the Internet. Gosselin was forced to leave the residence because he was four months behind on his rent payments. Philadelphia Daily News reported on the latest news on Oct. 22. The initial report came from Star Magazine, so it should be taken with a huge grain of salt.
Gosselin lived at the $299,000 home with his girlfriend, Liz Janetta, but the couple split back in September. At the time of their split, she left behind her kitten. It did not belong to Gosselin. He made it clear that it was his ex-girlfriend’s cat. When he was asked to leave the home, he moved out and left the kitten behind. He also left the property in bad shape, according to the owner of the property. The home had damage from Jon’s dog, which he did not leave behind.
Linda Eways, the property owner responsible for the Pennsylvania home said the following about the state of the property:
“I showed up to take a look at the house after Jon was supposed to have been entirely moved out, and what I found completely shocked and infuriated me. I was so frustrated by the entire situation that I had to leave and give him one more day to entirely move. We called Jon and asked him about the kitten, and he seemed unconcerned, saying it belonged to his ex girlfriend Liz [Janetta], who left in September. He just left her there.”
The kitten was rescued though, and Eways revealed that she adopted the kitten after Jon abandoned it. Eways did have to take Gosselin to court to have him leave the home. She sued Jon for $5,824.70. She had originally tried to work out a payment arrangement with Gosselin, but he never followed through with that arrangement. He lived in the home for four months without paying a single dime of rent to Eways.
Eways revealed that Jon told her that he had the money to pay his rent. In fact, he could afford to pay for the house completely. Jon’s problems paying the rent started after he lost his job as a waiter back in May. Jon has spoken out to deny the claims. He said that none of Eways’ statements are true.
The Pennsylvania home is just minutes away from the home that Kate shares with their children. It does appear that Kate is having financial trouble of her own. According to International Business Times, Kate Gosselin is holding a yard sale this weekend.
Kate revealed to a local radio station that she would be selling items belonging to her children at a yard sale set for Saturday. The radio station revealed on air that the items up for sale include toys and books used by the children. Kate will keep most of the proceeds from the sale, but a part of the sale proceeds will go to the Animal Rescue League. Some might call that an ironic twist after Jon abandoned the kitten at his former home.
What do you think? Are Jon and Kate Gosselin both having financial troubles? “Kate Plus 8” will air new episodes later this year.
