Kate Gosselin sells Pennsylvania family home for over $1M as 'unemployed' star battles ex Jon over custody in court

KATE Gosselin sold her mansion for over $1 million after her ex-husband, Jon, claimed their kids were "super upset" about the move.

The Sun can exclusively reveal Kate, 45, officially sold her Pennsylvania home for $1,085,000 on January 26 after putting it on the market for $1,299,900 in October.

Kate bought the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home for $1,120,000 in 2008.

The mansion sits on 23 acres of land. 

The kitchen features off-white cabinets, a large kitchen island, stainless steel appliances including three ovens, two dishwashers and more. 

The dining room features a brick gas fireplace. 

The home boasts oak and cherry hardwood floors throughout.

The lower level has a game and family room that opens to the patio. 

The deck features an outdoor kitchen with a fire pit that overlooks the salt water pool and twisty waterslide. 

The outside also boasts separate living quarters with a private entrance over the three-car detached garage and a three-stall horse barn. 

TMZ first reported in November that the home had a pending offer.

The Sun reported in October that the mother of eight put her home up for sale.

At the time, there was a for sale sign is already visible outside of the property, situated in the small suburban town of Wernersville, a borough in Berks County, with a population of around 3,000.

A source told The Sun: "Kate has been struggling with money because she hasn't worked for a while.

"She has been living off the money she made in the past but it’s been years since her last job."

The insider claimed her TLC show, Kate Plus Eight was her "last stint in the business" after it was canceled.

She now has plans to uproot her family and move out of the state, which could cause further problems with her ex-husband Jon, who still has custody of two of their children, Hannah and Collin.

The source continued: “She is a trained nurse but hasn't been applying for nursing jobs. She just doesn’t see herself as a nurse anymore.

"She wants to be a star and the kids are all grown up it seems like it’s time to move on but that’s not easy to do. Kate needs to move on and work but instead has decided to sell the home and leave Pennsylvania."

The insider added: “She has plans to move out of state and Jon has joint legal custody of the kids so she will have to tell him her next move.

“The kids will be 18 in a year and a half and it’s the end of an era. It will be nice for Jon to not have to have his ex-wife in the same area."

Kate and her ex were involved in a nasty custody battle after they divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage.

She has primary physical custody of children Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, while Jon has the remaining two sextuplets in his care.

Twins Mady and Cara live at their respective colleges, but reside with their mother when home.

It has been claimed Kate has "no contact" with Collin after she placed him in an inpatient special needs program for two years before he went to live with his father. 

Most recently, Jon has claimed his ex-wife Kate didn't tell their daughter Hannah, 16, she was selling their childhood home.

The 43-year-old said the teen – who is estranged from Kate – was "super upset" that her mom "didn't even call her" to say she had listed the Pennsylvania farmhouse.

Jon claimed during an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show – which airs on Tuesday – that he heard through friends that the home was up for sale.

He shared: "I told Hannah and she was super upset.

"She was pretty much upset that that was her childhood home, her mother selling it, didn't even call her to say, 'Hey, do you want any of your stuff or anything? Hey, I need to sell this house.' There is no contact."

Jon claimed it's been two years since he spoke to his six estranged children and blamed Kate for "shunning Hannah and Collin" as well as "parent alienation and now sibling alienation."
