Forbes Released Their List For The Highest Paid Actors In The World

Jon And Kate Gosselin Have The Cops Called On Them

They just can’t get along! Jon and Kate Gosselin got into such a heated argument over their kids that the cops had to show up and get things under control! They weren’t even at a house. This happened at a dentist's office! Jon or Kate took one of their kid’s to the dentist and then the exes got into it over who'd be taking her home. The argument got heated over the custody order. Jon Gosselin would up taking the child with him, and the cops told them to take up their issues with a judge. I guess visiting a dentist really can be painful!

I’m all about people standing up to hate! Way to go!
