Kate Gosselin is continuing to seek alleged back child support from her ex husband Jon Gosselin because she is reportedly cash-strapped.
The former reality star -- who shot to fame with her ex and their 8 kids on TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 -- is asking for $132,875 in child support after filing an adverse revival against Jon in 2022 to uphold a previous child support ruling from 2018, according to The Sun.
