Jon Gosselin has fired his new attorney – the one who called Kate an "absentee parent" and who two weeks ago filed legal papers seeking full custody of the kids for Jon.

"Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably," Jon Tweeted Thursday morning.

And, as for his ex-legal representative? "Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq., is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010. He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf."

List had told PEOPLE that he was a longtime friend of Jon's late father, Tom, and promised the elder Gosselin shortly before his death that he would help Jon if ever the need arose.
