When Jon Gosselin walked away from his wife in 2009, he also walked away from the income derived from their reality TV show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 (as in eight children – a set of twins and sextuplets).

Gosselin is no longer in the public eye and has a normal income. However, court documents obtained by CBS News show that his split from Kate left him paying child support of $22,000 a month. Uncle Sam may have to get in line.
