After a call was made about a custody dispute between Jon and Kate Gosselin on Tuesday afternoon, the police in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania responded. Around 1:10 p.m, authorities were called to an orthodontist’s office due to a “verbal domestic dispute over child custody involving one minor (Female/13 years old),” according to E! News.
Jon or Kate took one of their 13-year-old daughters to an orthodontist and the argument erupted over who would be taking the girl home, according to TMZ who reported the news first.
“The call came in at 1:10 this afternoon for a verbal domestic argument … over the custody of one of their 13-year-old daughters,” a Wyomissing Police Department spokesperson told Entertainment Tonight. “No one was arrested and the daughter did go home with the father after she expressed that was her desire to do.”
Over their 10-year marriage, the couple welcomed 8 children: twins Mady and Cara, both 16, and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel, each 13. Then, they divorced in 2009.

In May, the sextuplets turned 13 and Kate took to Instagram to celebrate the milestone.
“HAPPY 13th BIRTHDAY, my precious Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel! At this moment (7:51-7:53 am) 13 years ago, my life and heart were completed with your births!” the Kate Plus 8 star began.
“I love you all and NO MATTER WHAT it requires of me, I will ALWAYS be there for you; I’ll always be your biggest cheerleader, your role model by example, your shoulder to cry on, the hug and laugh you need, and your mommy and friend! I love you guys!” she continued.
Even though her kids are growing up and entering their teenage years, Kate admits that she still worried about their pasts, presents and futures in a recent Kate Plus 8 TLC promo.
“Being in a family of eight kids and a single mom, worrying about their present, their future, how to feed them, their college, how they turn out, all of it — you never stop worrying,” she said.
