Even he knows it now: any lawyer that would represent Jon Gosselin is not someone you’d want to represent you. Our favorite reality dad tweeted this morning that he has fired Anthony List only weeks after the former assistant U.S. attorney filed to remove Jon’s child support obligations and seek primary custody (“I terminated him on April 15, 2010…He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf”). According to JoGo, he never wanted to take custody from Kate in the first place. “[List] filed for that…I only wanted a more flexible custody schedule so I could be with my kids,” he told TMZ, adding that he still plans to pay child support. “I just can’t afford the $22,000 a month right now. That is why I’m trying to find a job.” Kate’s lawyers mocked List’s work, claiming there wasn’t even an address listed on the court papers. Jon now says he and the suits are working together “amicably” to resolve the matter.
Thankfully for them, any new friends he’s making in her legal team won’t be asked if he can crash in their den. While JoGo has yet to find any TV hosting gigs, your boy is at least fulfilling his parental obligation to find sex partners (hey, according to Life & Style, screwing is very important for single parents). “He has a new 40-something, Washington, D.C. love interest,” someone who cares told Us Weekly. “She’s rich—and he’s hoping to have her back one of his projects.” While we can’t believe any woman still wants to catch a ride on JoGo’s star, we’re comforted to at least see him finally aiming for ladies his age and older. Sugar moms we sort of get, but sugar nieces? Ew.
