In divorce papers filed Monday, Kate Gosselin says her marriage to husband Jon Gosselin is "irretrievably broken."
While filing for a no-fault divorce in Pennsylvania's Montgomery County Court, she also says she is willing to "negotiate a fair and reasonable" settlement with him.
The Associated Press had previously reported that Kate said she and Jon have been living apart for two years. But TLC says that is not true and that the reporter misread the divorce papers. TMZ.com offered this explanation for all the confusion.
On Monday's show, Jon and Kate – parents to 5-year-old sextuplets and 8-year-old twins – officially announced that they were splitting.
Neither made any mention of counseling — past, present or future.
"While I know it will be hard for them," said Kate of the effect of the separation on their children, "it will be the best and most peaceful for them."
On Tuesday, the network announced it has halted production of their TLC show until August to give the family "some time off to regroup."
Monday's divorce episode scored TLC its highest ratings of all time.
