A lot happened. There are rumors spreading about who cheated. Kate, with her bodyguard? Or Jon, with numerous mentionings of different women? Their marriage was falling to pieces. Also, there were mysterious rumors of divorce. Which eventually became true, sadly.
In many exclusive interviews, Kate's brother Kevin, and his wife Jodi, started talking. Saying, "Kate became obsessed with money.", they spilled. "When the producers started saying they wanted to give us a cut of the money, for being on the show so often, Kate yelled at us saying, 'No! We're the only one's who get the money! We're done!'".
The divorce was hard on the eight kids. Kate kept full custody of the eight children - Twins, Cara and Mady, and sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aadan, Joel, and Collin - although Jon still had visitation rights.
