Jon Gosselin better start looking for a new place to live! After several bounced checks, the reality star failed to pay four months rent, and has been evicted from his Pennsylvania property.
In December 2013, the dad of eight found the home of his dreams, conveniently located near ex Kate Gosselin’s property where his children permanently reside. At the time, he agreed to the terms of a rent to own lease agreement for the $299,000 property.
“Jon didn’t understand the terms of the contract and broke the lease, thinking he could just rent the property after agreeing to the rent to own the contractual agreement,” a source tells Star. “Evidently, he didn’t understand the terms of the contract.”
Since June, Jon has failed to come up with payments, and bounced multiple checks. He recently claimed he was still working with his bank to come up with a loan to pay back what he owed the owners, and hoped to continue living in the residence. “He acted like he had all this money,” the insider adds. “The owners tried to work with him, and he’d get cocky and claim he could easily pay for the house in cash.”
But Jon’s money problems are not a big surprise. In May, it was reported that the 37-year-old was fired from his job as a waiter at a Pennsylvania pub after “blowing off shifts and coming in late.” Another report says that he made an agreement with Kate in which he surrendered his rights for a say in their children’s television appearances in exchange for not having to pay child support.
