(Newser) – Jon Gosselin must return $180,000 to the bank account he shares with estranged wife Kate, a judge ruled today. The sum is part of a $232,000 withdrawal that Kate claims Jon made in violation of a divorce arbitrator’s orders, reports People. Jon has to pay up by the next court hearing on Oct. 26. Kate used the rest of the money for household expenses, and she must present a detailed accounting at the same hearing.
