Kate Gosselin has filed for alimony from her estranged husband Jon.

Sources tell The Insider, which first reported the news, the petition was filed in court sometime last week -- around the same time Jon, 32, tried to halt production on their nearly titled TLC show, Kate Plus 8, claiming it is hurting his kids.

Kate, 34, shot back this past Monday, claiming that Jon removed $230,000 from their joint account, leaving her with bills. Jon called her claims a "total fabrication" and said that Kate has been "hiding money." He even went as far as telling Entertainment Tonight that twins Cara and Mady's Oct. 8 birthday party could wind up being "WWIII."

Kate filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years in June.

The new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now, reports that the eight Gosselin children are suffering from their parents' public war of words.

"They are confused and distraught and are acting out all the time in an effort to get attention from their parents," a source tells Us Weekly.

As the bickering continues, insiders say neither parent seems to care how the kids -- sextuplets Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin are 5-years old, twins Mady and Cara turned 9 Thursday -- are faring.

"She barely talks to them," a Kate confidant tells Us Weekly. "The nannies are doing 95 percent of the work. Kate has a short attention span, and everything upsets her."

As for Jon, "he can't stay at home with them," says a Jon source, who overheard the bad dad asking a paparazzo what time the kids were due home from school. "He gets annoyed when they interrupt him when he's on the phone."
