Kate Gosselin had a yard sale that turned into a very awkward situation when her ex husband Jon Gosselin stopped by. Apparently, the celebrity figure’s former flame — with rumors that he has been evicted from his home persisting this week — was said to want his things back. As a result, the Daily Mail reveals this Sunday, October 26, 2014, his unexpected arrival was not a happy occasion for Kate, who looked visibly frustrated in photos captured of the event.
Almost five long years have passed since Jon and Kate divorced, but a Kate Gosselin yard sale turned into a sudden reunion for the estranged celebrity couple this weekend. Apparently, all of the media attention surrounding the garage giveaway was the reason he knew about the Philadelphia sale on Saturday (reported earlier here, with some fans wondering whether Kate was going through money troubles or simply getting rid of some of her ex-husband’s items laying around the house).
Now, it appears that Jon Gosselin wanted his things back before Kate could give it all away, and the reunion became a very awkward situation, to say in the least. The press release shares that the mother of eight was trying to sell a variety of items, including clothes and old car seats, with a number of the goods being Jon’s described “junk.” Some of the money and proceeds were said to be going to support a local animal league.
According to a report from TMZ, 39-year-old Kate Gosselin had her yard sale interrupted when Jon came on the scene uninvited. Photos at the scene captured a tired-looking Kate (photos can be found via the TMZ link above). Less than a week ago, some sources were saying that tensions had only risen in Jon’s life recently due to him being evicted from his apartment because he had been unable to pay the rent.
How might this situation been made even more awkward for Kate and Jon Gosselin, not to mention their kids present at the garage sale? Apparently, Steve Neild, Kate’s alleged new boyfriend, was also there in attendance. Neild is said to be working as the reality TV star’s bodyguard while she is preparing to film a new show. The blonde mom was snapped by some paparazzi looking happier earlier that day, but evidently frazzled by the time her ex appeared.
Some witnesses are defending Jon in this case, arguing that the dad was simply stopping by the yard sale held at a church in order to spend some time with his family, particularly his children. Others say that the 37-year-old came to see whether Kate was giving away all of his stuff, and that the wanted his things back (regardless of whether he has the “money” for them).
Jon Gosselin is known to be going through some financial difficulties at the moment. Hopefully, the awkward situation and makeshift reunion this weekend still turned out to be a positive time for him with his eight kids. As provided by US weekly:
“It’s true. [Jon] was evicted last week and has been in the process of moving out … He agreed to the terms of a rent-to-own lease agreement for the $299,000 property,’ but then ‘broke the lease, thinking he could just rent the property after agreeing to the rent-to-own contractual agreement.”
What do you think of the Kate Gosselin yard sale and Jon’s surprise appearance at the event? Is too much attention from the media being given to this unexpected reunion? If anything, it has once again put the “Kate Plus Eight” family back in the celebrity news spotlight this weekend.
