Ex-husband sues Kate Gosselin over custody

April 7, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Kate Gosselin's ex-husband plans to sue her for primary custody of their eight children.According to Jon Gosselin's attorney, Kate's appearances on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" have turned her into an absentee mother.

Jon's attorney says the kids' lives are topsy-turvy, and their father can give them stability.

Kate's lawyer calls the allegations reckless and patently false.

The former reality TV mom landed in ninth place Monday night, but made it through eliminations on Tuesday night on "Dancing." She and her partner Tony Dovolani will be back for more "Dancing" action next week.
