Strap yourselves in, kiddies; the Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce saga is about to get a lot uglier.

OK! Magazine reports that Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom Kate is planning to apply for full custody of the soon-to-be-divorced couple’s mega-brood, and will be using footage from their reality show to convince a judge to give it to her.

According to a source, Kate had planned to be fair about the whole thing and agree to a 50/50 split, but after seeing Jon’s recent shenanigans—such as reportedly carrying on with babysitter/aspiring nude model Stephanie Santoro—she changed her mind.

“She doesn’t feel comfortable allowing Jon to have custody when she can’t trust him to keep them safe,” says an insider. “When Jon starts acting like an adult, she’ll reconsider.”

Considering Jon’s full-frontal embrace of the party-boy lifestyle, that might be a while.
