It's over.

  The split is complete.

  TMZ has all the details,  including this rather cruel knife between the shoulder blades of Jon:

  "Jon must make huge child support payments -- we're told 5 figures a month. And here's the problem. TLC has now shut down Jon's ability to take outside jobs. The irony -- he did himself in.

We've also learned Jon was charged every penny of the $235,000 that he withdrew from their joint account. That amount was deducted from his piece of the settlement."

  Kate, via a spokesman:

  "I am very relieved that our divorce has been finalized, and I look forward to the New Year, focusing on our children."

  Me? I can't bring myself to say something snooty here, or snotty.  It's all just...so...pathetic. And sad. And avoidable.
