Are Jon & Kate About to Announce a Breakup? AP, RadarOnline, Gawker

TLC’s Jon and Kate Gosselin on Monday plan to announce a major “life-changing” decision on their hit reality show about life in Pennsylvania with 8-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets, “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” reports the Associated Press.

RadarOnline reports that its source says Kate Gosselin recently met with a divorce lawyer and that originally a separation had been set for mid-July but the timetable was moved up, perhaps due to the media frenzy surrounding the once-fairy tale couple.

Strains in the relationship have been evident in recent episodes, as the pair went their separate ways on major occasions, such as Kate’s birthday and a recent vacation. adds another piece to the puzzle: A tipster told the site that Jon Gosselin was spotted with a real estate agent checking out an apartment in Manhattan’s Upper West Side Trump Towers.
