Reality TV parents Kate and Jon Gosselin both released statements on Monday, following the news of their pending divorce. Kate was seen today pumping her own gas.
Court documents were filed in a Pennsylvania court the same day the Gosselins announced their separation on "Jon and Kate Plus 8."
The 34-year-old mother of eight said in a statement: "Over the course of this weekend, Jon's activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children. While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children."
Jon responded to the filing with his own statement: "This afternoon, Kate filed for divorce. Our kids are still my number one priority. I love them and want to make sure they stay happy, healthy and safe. My job is being the best, most supportive and loving father that I can be to my kids, and not being married to Kate doesn't change that."
TLC announced that production has been halted on "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Next Monday's episode will feature a clip package with some new footage.
