If you haven't heard, there was a police-involved incident between Jon and Kate Gosselin on August 22 at an orthodontist's office, as the once–Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars argued over who would take their 13-year-old daughter home. Sadly, things are much worse than we thought, as details surrounding this incident are starting to come to light ... along with another altercation between the former reality stars that happened just seven days ago.


As it turns out, Jon was the one who called Wyomissing Police on August 22 to oversee a "verbal domestic dispute" with Kate, which makes this event all the more heartbreaking. (The former couple's unnamed daughter eventually decided to leave with her dad.)

... And the drama sadly doesn't stop there.

Kristen Doleva-Lecher, Jon's attorney, reveals Jon and Kate were involved in yet another custody-related incident August 15 in a parking lot, which makes you question whether or not these two will ever come to some sort of agreement involving their eight children. (Kate and Jon have 16-year-old twins Cara and Madelyn, and 13-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, and Leah.)

"The ability to co-parent is desirous in all custody matters; unfortunately in this case, it remains a theory, not a reality," Doleva-Lecher told E! News.

While there aren't any specifics as to what happened during the August 15 and August 22 showdowns, Jon's lawyer told E! that the father of eight "has been aggressively and relentlessly fighting for his kids. Jon is frustrated by recent events but will not be derailed in his efforts to do what is right."

Obviously, no one knows exactly what went down (lawyers typically defend their clients), or who may or may not have provoked what. At the end of the day, the focus should be on those eight kids -- who are all teenagers now and have a full understanding of what's going on.
