Confirmed: Jon and Kate Gosselin Divorce Papers Filed – They’re Splitting

It has been confirmed by People magazine that Jon and Kate Gosselin of the hit reality show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, have already started divorce proceedings.

Documents to begin divorce proceedings were filed at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, Penn., Monday afternoon.

In the much hyped episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8 tonight, which hasn’t aired as I write this, the couple anounced last week that there would be a major announcement about their family.This comes in the wake of the past few months being filled by rumor, speculation, photos and videos of the couple cheating on each other – Jon with 23 year old school teacher, Deanna Hummel, and Kate with one of her bodyguards.

Well the speculation has finally come to an end. We’re not sure how this will play out, whether they’ll make all this a part of the show or keep it in private as much as possible, but given the show’s falling ratings, we’re betting that tonight’s show will be one of their biggest ever for viewership.
