While the bodyguard who used to watch over the children has allegedly become more of a close partner for Kate, a source close to Kate’s ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, claims that he is helping to take care of his brood.
Another source close to Kate, however, maintains that Jon isn’t helping her any more than normal and that she has had to hire three nannies to help out while she is busy taping. The source claims, “Jon has the kids for a few days a week. The custody schedule changes all the time, always depending on Kate’s schedule."
The source reveals that "...Jon drops them off at the house, and the nanny takes them at the front door. He usually doesn’t know if Kate is around or not, and he doesn’t know her shooting schedule. She really keeps Jon in the dark about a lot of things. But it’s safe to say Kate was not with them last week, because Jon is.”
However, an insider on Team Kate maintains that Jon hasn’t stepped up to take care of the kids at all while she films Donald Trump’s show and that Kate has been forced to pay for the outrageous nanny bill. The source states, “Kate actually asked Jon to help out more with the kids while she does Celeb Apprentice, but he refused. He only wanted to take them his usual one day a week.”
The source goes on to say that Kate has been trying to go back and forth as much as possible between filming the show and spending time with her children. According to the insider, the only reason Kate is doing Celebrity Apprentice is so that she can make money to help raise her children.
