According to the insider, Kate is upset that Jon is penning a tell-all book, especially since her last book tanked. Afraid he'll wind up a bigger success than she is, Kate tries to needle Jon any way she can - changing the days he has with the kids at the last minute, trying to ban his new girlfriend, Ellen Ross, from spending time with the children. But Jon tells Kate he's "sick of her drama," says the insider. "There's no way he'll let her walk all over him - he did that enough when they were married."

For now, Jon seems to have won the kids over - something else that, much as she might like to, Kate can't control.
This is no surprise. As photos proves that the kids are MUCH happier when Jon is around.
