While no official reason has been released by Jon or any affiliated parties, sources revealed to Perez Hilton that it's likely tied to Kate's potentially harmful parenting.
"Hanna [sic] recently said she didn't want to go home to her mom because she can't take the cruelty anymore," a source told PH. "She was so afraid of her mom that Jon became concerned and called Children and Youth Services and filed a report — and he took emergency custody of Hannah." Hannah is one of the famous sextuplets.
On May 1 Radar Online caught a tweet (which was later deleted) by the reality show mom that read: "Hey! Can you help me again? I'm in 24 hours protection mode here.. Can you find out where Jon DJ's tonight and tomorrow pm literally ASAP?"
The TLC show has been airing since 2007. In 2010, a year after the news of Jon and Kate's marital separation, it was revamped as Kate Plus 8 and the Berks County mom continued to catch heat for raising her children in front of a camera.
In January of 2014, Kate sat down with her two eldest daughters, Mady and Cara, for an uncomfortable interview on the Today show. It was supposed to be a chance for the twin daughters to speak out in support of their mother, but they were uneasy and silent.
