Cops Called After Reality Couple Does The Unthinkable At Dentist Office

Former reality television stars are in hot water after reports surfaced that police had to intervene on a trip to the dentist.

Sextuplet parents Jon and Kate Gosselin seemed to be a solid team when they starred in the show, 'Jon and Kate plus Eight'. The reality show chronicled the life of raising their eight children, including the famous sextuplets they had in 2004. Viewers were shocked in 2009, when on the show, Jon and Kate announced that they were getting divorced. With their business splattered all over the tabloids, things got ugly. It seems that even now, eight years later, the parents of eight cannot get together on even the most minute issues.

Jon and Kate had to call the police recently to settle a custody dispute. They couldn't decide which of them would be the one to pick up their kid from a dentist appointment.

According to TMZ, police were called to the dentist's office in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania to step in and settle a heated argument between the two parents. The couple do have a custody agreement, but they couldn't agree on who was supposed to pick that child up after the exam. Police helped to iron out the situation and ultimately allowed Jon to take the child home.

There were no arrests made at the dentist's office, and officers suggested that the parents see a judge about their custody disputes. The two have joint custody, though the details of the arrangement have not been made public.

After the news of the divorce broke, allegations of Jon having an affair began to spread across tabloid headlines. Kate garnered little sympathy, as she was painted as a bossy, overbearing control freak that pushed her husband away. Both of the Gosselins were blasted for 'exploiting' their children to gain fame and wealth.

Kate planned to continue with the show in 2010, which was renamed 'Kate plus Eight', and it would shift focus on Kate as a divorced single mother. Jon attempted to stop the production with cease and desist letters from his lawyer. He managed only to delay things by banning crews from their Pennsylvania property.

The show resumed in 2011, though it was cancelled at the end of that second season. It resumed in 2014 and started its sixth season on July 10, 2017.

Things didn't improve with time, however. In fact, things only seemed to get worse for the two parents in the years following the divorce. Jon told E News in 2016 that he barely saw the kids anymore. "I can't do anything," he said. "It's unfair of her to do that, considering she claims that she does her best for all my kids. Dah, dah, dah, drama. ‘I'm perfect.' No one's perfect, honey. Trust me."

Jon complained that costly court battles had become a regular part of life. “Do you know how expensive court is? You have no idea. All the filings—and I do my own filings, then submit them to a law firm for stamp of approval—I have to pay for that. And pay all the court fees in the hopes that you'll get something out of it. I've been going to court for seven years now. Unless you can arbitrate out of it and have a working relationship with the other parent, you're going to spend a lot of money,” he told E News.
