Jon Gosselin took to Twitter Thursday to disavow statements his former attorney made about ex-wife Kate Gosselin, saying, "Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably."

Tweeted Gosselin, 33, "Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq. is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010." He went on to say that List "has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf."

List told late Wednesday that Kate Gosselin, 35, is "always promoting something . . . and most of the time it's herself."

The attorney, a partner with his brother John in the law firm List & List in the Philadelphia suburb of Media, Pa., had told People magazine he was a longtime friend of Jon Gosselin's late father, Tom.

List also told TMZ that even though Kate Gosselin was cut from "Dancing With the Stars" on Tuesday, that show "is just the tip of the iceberg for Kate, as surely there will be many other projects to take its place soon." These would include the TLC series "Twist of Kate," scheduled to premiere late this summer.

TMZ also reported that despite what List filed in the divorce case, Jon Gosselin never asked for primary custody of his eight children, "I never wanted primary custody; he filed for that," Gosselin told TMZ. "I only wanted a more flexible custody schedule so I could be with my kids."

List refuted this, telling the website, "Jon signed off on everything." List did not return a call to his law office.

The Gosselins are due back in court May 25.
