Jon Gosselin, Daughter Hannah Celebrate Independence … From Kate!

The same Gosselin child who honored Jon Gosselin on Father's Day is still sticking around.

In fact, Hannah Gosselin got to celebrate the Fourth of July with her dad.

And both of them posted pictures to show it. Take a look:

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin, July 4th

"Happy 4th of July!!!" Jon Gosselin wrote in the caption of this precious father-daughter photo featuring the flag.

He followed that by writing "US." You know, just in case we weren't sure why he was excited.

If you've noticed that his top is navy blue with white stars, just know that there is more to his patriotic ensemble.

See, Hannah has her own Instagram account and she, too, shared a father-daughter photo.

In it, you can see his whole outfit.

Hannah Gosselin and Jon Gosselin, 4th of July

Hannah shared this photo.

(Hannah, as you may recall, is 14 years old, which is old enough to operate her very own social media without an adult managing it)

In the captions, she writes: "Happy Fourth of July!"

Now, Hannah's outfit is tastefully patriotic -- with that navy blue top.

Jon's outfit, with the red shorts, white stars, and navy blue takes things a step further -- but it's a dad's job to be a little embarrassing with his outfit, right?

It's so good that the two of them -- very appropriately -- were able to celebrate Independence Day together.

Jon Gosselin and Kids, July 4th 2016

This isn't the first Fourth of July that Hannah has enjoyed with her father -- and with Jon Gosselin's girlfriend.

The oldest photo that Hannah has shared on Instagram is this one, from July 4th of 2016.

As we implied earlier, Hannah getting to spend Independence Day with her father seems appropriate, because her mother Kate is widely believed to be intensely controlling and unpleasant.

Hannah has done a lot of growing in two years -- all of the kids have.

Also ... is Jon wearing the same shorts? That's okay, since we're sure that he's washed them since then, but it's admittedly kind of funny.

Jon Gosselin, Hannah Gosselin, and Colleen Conrad

Hannah and her dad have been sharing photos of their time together almost nonstop for a few months, now.

Not everything about the family's custody arrangements is entirely clear.

But Jon and Hannah did get to go and visit poor Collin, which many fans and followers found to be very heartwarming.

We're sure that Hannah is thrilled to be able to spend time with her dad.

He might not be a perfect man, but he's her dad -- and he's so much better than Kate.

We're sure that a lot of holidays are a little complicated, though, since she surely misses her siblings.

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin

Not everything is exactly hunky dory between the famous exes.

In fact, Kate Gosselin is suing Jon for a tremendous amount of money -- money that he absolutely, to the best of our knowledge, does not possess.

These exes have a contentious relationship, but it's unclear what prompted this sudden demand for cash.

But it looks like Jon has the right priorities. Like we said, he's a flawed man, but he loves his children and it looks like spending time with Hannah is doing him some good.

Hannah is also enjoying living with her dad .. and away from Kate.

Happy Independence Day!

Jon Gosselin: At Least ONE of My Kids Loves Me on Father’s Day!

Jon Gosselin isn't going to win a Father of the Year award any time soon ... unless his teenage daughter Hannah is running the show.

Jon and his daughter Hannah have been spending a lot of time together in the past couple of months, and that valuable bonding time has really paid off.

Just look at the precious Father's Day tribute that Hannah wrote to and about her dad.

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin

Posting a public Father's Day post, especially when you're a kid in a very complicated family, is no simple task.

Hannah's post begins: "Happy Fathers Day, Dad."

She's off to a good start.

"I love you so much," she writes.

Also a good start.

Hannah continues: "You're the best dad anyone could ever ask for."

That is ... very sweet of her to say.

Hannah adds a personal note, writing: "I love our late night ice cream runs together."

Those ice cream runs have been well-documented in Instagram photos.

"You're the best," she finishes.

Hannah Gosselin and Jon Gosselin, Father's Day Collage 2018

She writes all of that within the captions of this photo of a collage that she assembled online.

Is feeding photos into an online collage generator the most personal touch? No.

But it's a useful tool. Jon knows how much he means to his daughter, and that's what matters.

This is a public post, and so it's very different from what you would write in a card, which in turn is different than what you would say to someone in person.

She's young, but she's been a celebrity for, like, a decade. She knows how to honor her dad without getting too personal.

Jon responded in the comments, writing: "Thank you HJ love you!!!!"

Jon Gosselin, Hannah Gosselin, and Colleen Conrad

Jon and Hannah (and, as you can see in this photo and in a couple of the collage photos, Jon's girlfriend Colleen Conrad) have been spending so much time together that some fans believe that he may have custody.

In May, Jon shared a video that may have alluded to a change in custody.

"Unfortunately Hannah couldn’t make it to this video," he said. "But I’d like to thank everyone for the love and support you’ve shown us this week."

That week featured many photos of father-daughter adventures. Yes, those adventures included trips to get ice cream.

"Obviously you know the situation," Jon continued.

Well, we all know that he is separated from most of his children, to his ongoing frustration. We also know that Kate Gosselin is suing him.

"If you don’t know the situation," Jon advises. "You should just get together with a friend or anyone that understands the situation."

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin Get Ice Cream

If Jon received custody of Hannah, it very likely means that she requested it.

Perhaps this was an arrangement to which Kate agreed ... we all know that Hannah wouldn't be the first time that Kate has sent away one of her children. Poor Collin.

Or perhaps this was just Hannah's wish. Generally, courts will take a child's wishes into account if the child is 13 or older. Hannah is 14.

But does that mean that Hannah's four remaining sextuplet siblings (four remaining with Kate, that is) all chose to stay with her?

Or is this about money? Because Jon has a job, but he does not have a reality series or much money at all.

He may have enough to make up for lost time with Hannah, but supporting the rest of his children mgiht be more than he could handle, unfortunately.

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin at Starbucks

Jon Gosselin has absolutely made some mistakes, as a parent and as a human being.

But he is clearly bringing new happiness to his daughter's life.

And he was even able to visit Collin Gosselin at whatever facility currently houses that poor boy.

He's doing his best as a parent, and that is worth something.

He could clearly be doing much worse.

Just look at Kate.

Jon Gosselin Shares Rare Pics of Woman Who is Dating Him for Some Reason

Recently, Jon Gosselin and his daughter Hannah have been spending plenty of time together. But even with dad duties, he still has his love life.

In fact, Jon has been dating his current girlfriend for a while now.

And he's shared a couple of new, very rare photos of the two of them together.

Jon Gosselin and Colleen Conrad

Jon Gosselin's life hasn't been the most glamorous since he and Kate had their falling out.

His emotional health has almost certainly improved since his escape from Kate Gosselin's presence. ...

(We just wish that we could say the same for those poor children!)

But his lifestyle is no longer that of a reality star. He has worked as waiter at one of those restaurant chains that "Millennials are killing," he's worked installing solar panels, he's worked as a DJ.

Oh, and there was that time that he worked as a stripper. (Okay, so he danced and took off his shirt, but that was it)

But there has been one enduring light in his life -- aside from his children. He has been dating Colleen Conrad since October of 2014.

Jon Gosselin and Girlfriend Colleen Conrad

This week, Jon Gosselin shared a couple of snaps of him with Colleen.

He captioned one: "Tailgating at the Def Leopard and Journey concert in Philly!!!!"

The next photo, at the concert itself, is captioned:

"Def Leopard and Journey!!! Let’s go!!!"

Journey is one of the most famous '80s bands out there, mostly for that one song.

Def Leppard (yes, the band's spelling) is an English New Wave rock band.

One might characterize it all as "dad music," but it looks like Colleen is having a good time. She's smiling, anyway.

Good for them for enjoing themselves!

Jon Gosselin and Girlfriend Colleen

Almost exactly one year ago, Jon congratulated his girlfriend for completing nursing school.

Some fans have speculated about how Jon can afford luxuries like concert tickets (even if they aren't to the, um, most fresh-faced or current music groups) when he is said to have only a few thousand dollars to his name.

(Keep in mind that Kate Gosselin is suing Jon at the moment for enough money to buy a small house)

There may be a simple explanation: perhaps Colleen bought the tickets as a treat for Jon. Or for her -- we don't know what sort of music she enjoys.

Besides, even if Jon bought these tickets himself, it's not like it would make any impact on whether or not he can pay Kate the $132,875 that he owes her.

In the mean time, fans are treated to these rare snaps of Jon and his lady love.

Jon Gosselin and Colleen

The last time that fans got to see Colleen, she was with Jon and Hannah as they celebrated a win by the Philadelphia Eagles, which is a football team.

Jon and his 14-year-old daughter have had a special bond, and she has been seen more and more with her father in recent months.

The two have gotten coffee and gotten ice cream and gone on road trips.

It's nice to see that they still have a relationship with each other despite, well, the intense complications of Jon and Kate's divorce.

Plus, any moment that any of Kate's children get to spend away from her clutches is a blessing, don't you think?

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin

Colleen, by the way, has reportedly recently moved in with Jon.

She also has two children from a previous relationship.

While we don't think that Jon & Colleen Plus Ten will be a reality series any time soon (it wouldn't work unless they have three kids, and then it could be Jon & Colleen Plus Thirteen, which rhymes but probably isn't worth it), they share that much more in common.

Good for them. And good for Jon for being able to find a new life after Kate.

We look forward to the day when the Gosselin children can all get their fresh start in life and breathe free air.

Jon Gosselin: Kate is Suing Me Because the Kids Love Me More!!

Kate Gosselin is currently taking Jon to court to sue him for ... many times more money than he actually has.

Newly obtained court documents don't fully explain why Kate is demanding every cent of Jon's money.

But one thing is very clear: Jon Gosselin is pissed. And he's fighting back.

Gosselin

In case you were wondering if Jon and Kate Gosselin still hate each other ... wonder no more.

Kate is hauling Jon into court, suing him for $132,875.

Between the very specific amount and their history together, many suspect that she is asserting that he owes her child support money.

(Remember, folks, that Kate is the one with the reality series while Jon has sometimes seemed to struggle to find work, his celebrity being more of a burden than a help in most situations)

All that we really know is that Kate claims that he breached an alleged agreement.

Now, RadarOnline reports that Jon is fighting back against Kate's lawsuit.

Thanks to some court documents that they obtained, they know what he's arguing.

Kate Gosselin is Tired

Within the filing, Jon's attorney says that Kate's six-figure demand is "an inappropriate amount."

The papers also call into question Kate's assertion that Jon owes her anything.

His attorney notes that Kate's lawsuit does "not provide any proof of the language of that agreement."

You know how you can't sue someone for breach of contract without an actual contract?

Always keep documentation, folks.

Gosselin Children Turn 14

Within his response, Jon shares that he suspects that Kate is seeking "child support arrears."

This sort of back-payment would, he says, be due if he "filed a petition to modify custody."

Of course, while much is still unclear, none of the documents specify that the couple has made any changes whatsoever to their child custody agreement.

(Sure, many fans would love to see a change in that, but while wishes are nice and all, it takes court filings to amend a custody arrangement)

Jon's attorney is asking the judge to strike Kate's six-figure demand all the way down to zero dollars and zero cents.

The argument is that the money requested, which is more than Jon has, also "prejudices the welfare and is against the best interest of the minor children."

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin

Some wonder -- though, with limited information, it is difficult to be sure of the exact timing of anything -- if perhaps Kate is suing Jon as a way of lashing out over how much time he's been spending with daughter Hannah.

Hannah has been visibly spending time with her father for weeks. Many fans believe that they are now living together.

Even commenters on Kate's own Instagram are celebrating this, writing things like:

"So happy for jon and hannah....she looks really happy...finally shes out of that prison..jon worked long and hard to rescue her from that witch...i thought you being in charge was never gonna change kate....oh brother has it changed."

Commenters on Jon's Instagram seem much more positive about the apparently changed arrangement.

"Hannah and Jon look great. I always loved her personality and Jon you did a great job as well."

Of course, some couldn't help but shade Kate in the process.

"Yes...Jon is the one we liked and respected. No comment on the other."

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin at Starbucks

So ... is Kate's lawsuit backlash for Jon spending time with Hannah (and even some time with Collin!)?

Or is it less emotional than that. Is Kate trying to get payments that she genuinely believes that Jon owes her now he is (at least for now) seemingly Hannah's primary caregiver?

We have to acknowledge that it may be neither -- some huge coincidence.

As this lawsuit continues to play out in court, we will hopefully all know more.

One thing's for sure -- we don't think that Kate is going to get what she wants. Jon can't pay her what he doesn't have.

Kate Gosselin: I Demand Every CENT of Jon Gosselin’s Money!!

In case there was ever any doubt, yes, Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin still hate each other.

And now it's more than just personal -- they're facing each other in court.

This time, it's about more than just their long-running custody battle. It's about money. Is Kate trying to bleed him dry?

Jon Gosselin Coke With Kate Photo

RadarOnline reports that Kate Gosselin is demanding a major payday from her ex, Jon Gosselin, according to court records that the tabloid obtained.

How much money? To the tune of about $132,000.

She apparently filed this lawsuit in March, but Jon isn't going down without a fight.

"He’s contesting it."

But a $132,000 dispute isn't something that you work out over coffee. This is a civil dispute.

"They’re fighting it out in court."

Katie 'Kate' Gosselin

It sounds like this battle has been waging for about two months.

Their research indicates that Jon Gosselin was personally served with a complaint by a shariff on April 5.

On April 6, Jon issued his response -- in the form of a petition to strike. He has lawyered up.

As to why Jon would wage this legal battle with Kate in the first place, the answer is pretty simple.

"It’s a lot of money."

Six figures is no laughing matter, especially when, like Jon, you've struggled as a famous person without a reality series to keep you afloat.

Gosselin

"Both parties are contesting it."

And the insider suggests that this court battle could drag on for ages.

"It’s not over yet."

It's clear that they're willing to fight.

So far, this has only cost Kate an estimated $300 and Jon an estimated $200.

But court battles usually include attorneys and other expenses that can cost more than a few hundred dollars.

And, of course, whoever wins, at least one of them will be losing out on a sizable chunk of cash.

Kate Gosselin is Tired

It is not immediately clear, RadarOnline notes, why Kate is demanding this cash or in this amount.

Back in 2012, in simpler times when people feared that the world would end for mystical reasons rather than through unstable despots with nuclear stockpiles, Kate said that Jon owed her child support.

Specifically, she said that he owed her $3,500 in child support. That's not a lot to have, but that can be a lot to owe, you know?

Back then, Jon told her frankly that he could not afford to pay it. Kate voluntarily waived it at the time. Which seems ... uncharacteristically nice of her.

This lawsuit seems more like the Kate with whom viewers are familiar.

Jon Gosselin Poster

But ... what is her angle?

Online estimates put Kate's net worth at about $200,000. They put Jon's net worth at about $10,000.

We don't really know what Kate expects to get out of this. We don't even know why Kate believes that she is entitled to this money. Is it child support or something else?

We're glad that Jon Gosselin and his daughter spent some quality time together in recent weeks.

We hope that he gets to spend time with all of his children, even during this court battle.

It's all sure to be a mess.

Jon Gosselin to Daughter: Let’s Talk About Your Evil Mom!

Earlier this month, Jon Gosselin shared a rare photo of Collin. These are extremely unusual these days, ever since Kate shipped her son off to parts unknown.

But while fans are pleased to see Collin alive -- though they still have plenty of questions -- Jon has been posting more photos.

These are with his daughter, Hannah -- and only with Hannah. This is raising even more questions, honestly.

Jon Gosselin, Hannah

Obviously, it is wonderful to see Jon Gosselin, who has long complained that he hasn't gotten to spend much time with his children over the years, spend some one-on-one quality time with his daughter.

And it looks like it's really nice for Hannah, too.

They seem to have spent over a week together, including going on a road trip and visiting Collin.

During that time, they've posted plenty of precious new father-daughter photos.

They did not take a photo at every opportunity -- they were too busy enjoying each other's company.

But they posted plenty. And they shared messages with fans.

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin at Starbucks

Jon Gosselin even shared a message with fans, prefacing the video with:

"Thank you to everyone for all the love and support this week!!! Hannah and I forgot to take a pic."

Totally understandable. Like we said, they were enjoying each other's company.

"She is doing her in video @itsmehjg check it out!!!"

It is always sweet to see family supporting each other on social media.

"Have awesome Holiday, Happy Memorial Day and let’s get summer started!!!! Thanks again!"

That was a good preface.

Hannah Gosselin and Jon Gosselin

During Jon Gosselin's actual post, he says:

"I’d like to thank everyone for their love and support during this week."

Fans were, of course, absolutely overjoyed to see so many happy photos of father-daughter time.

"Obviously, you know the situation."

He refers, of course, to his very complicated and unhappy custody situation with his absolute nightmare of an ex-wife, Kate Gosselin.

"If you don’t know the situation you should get together with a friend or anyone who understands the situation."

In other words, he's not going to say that she's the worst because he wants to keep things publicly amicable so that he can see his kids.

But if you ask a friend, they'll tell you what's up.

"But I want to say Happy Memorial Day, good luck to everyone and have a safe and happy weekend."

We're sure that he has been treasuring his moments with his daughter.

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin Get Ice Cream

As was mentioned, Hannah did share her own video on social media ... though it is not currently present on her Instagram page.

"Hey daddy, I just wanted to say I had so much fun this week posting all the pictures."

That is so sweet of her. She's 14 and giving her dad a shoutout on social media.

Plenty of teens would not do the same, to be honest. (That's okay, though)

"And I wanted to thank everyone for the love and support."

Which means that she saw some of those comments, too. Or at least heard about them.

"So go watch my dad’s video!"

Awww!

Jon Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin, Road Trip

We don't know the exact parameters of their extended visits with each other, save that it involved a road trip and, of course, seeing Collin.

We know, of course, that Jon isn't going to win any Father of the Year awards any time soon.

But considering that Kate is the alternative, we're sure that Hannah very much enjoyed her daddy-daughter time.

Fans enjoyed these precious pics, and we hope to see more like them in the near future.

Perhaps Jon will get to spend some time with his six other children?

For his sake, but also for the sake of the kids. They deserve a break.

Jon Gosselin Shares Rare Photo of Son, Raises Many Questions

Did Jon Gosselin just hurl some very passive aggressive shade in the direction of his ex-wife?

Or did the controversial former reality star simply give fans an update for which they've been clamoring?

Gosselin

These questions have been raised and are now being debated by social media users across the Internet after Gosselin posted a photo on Instagram of his son Collin.

He did so in celebration of the young man turning 14 years old.

“Glad I could celebrate my son Collin’s 14th birthday with him and his sister!” wrote Jon as a caption to the image below, which has generated its fair share of chatter in response.

For what reason?

Jon and Kate Gosselin have seemingly gone out of their way to hide Collin from the public for a very long time now.

Jon Gosselin, Son

Kate has even gotten into a great deal of hot water over sharing many pictures of her other seven kids, and even throwing them parties, without including Collin.

Moreover, neither Jon nor Kate ever really mention Collin at all.

The latter has even been accused of lying about her child's whereabouts.

In September of 2016, a letter Kate penned to Collin from her memoir went viral.

In this message, Kate revealed that he was being sent away to the program for children with special needs.

She said at the time that her won was “sweet, kind and helpful” but tended to act out, explaining as follows:

“As you have grown, however, I must say you have also challenged my authority greatly.

At two and a half, you began testing and trying my parenting at every chance. I called Daddy at work many days crying because you would not obey...

"As you have grown, this has not changed. You continue to be determined to do what you want to do, and I continue to try to rein you in."

Needless to say, Gosselin earned some major backlash for taking such issues and complaints public.

Katie 'Kate' Gosselin

So we're at least very happy here to see that Collin appears to be happy and healthy.

We're left to wonder, though, just why Jon posted this image.

Is he shading Kate, using Collin against her in some way to prove that he cares more about the child than Kate has appeared to.

This Instagram snapshot, after all, was published just days after a report that detailed how Jon and Kate still hate each other. A lot.

It also came on the heels of Jon sharing an image of himself and daughter Hannah, making it look for once as if he's actually a caring dad.

Check it out here:

Jon Gosselin, Hannah

“I don’t know what’s going on. The whole point is I’m left in the dark. There’s no explanation. It’s disheartening,” Jon told Us Weekly in Januaey of 2016, adding:

“I don’t ever see Collin, ever. Not off the bus because he doesn’t go to school. Not at the gate because he doesn’t come down. Nothing.

"I am totally estranged from Collin because of Kate.”

Will the feud between these two ever end?

It doesn't seem that way.

In honor of her sextuplets turnign 14 last week, Kate wrote the following:

Happy 14th Birthday, my ‘babies’. 14 years ago almost to the minute, I was in my wheelchair, making my way around the ENTIRE NICU, meeting each of you face to face for the very first time.

I’ll never forget how tiny yet perfect each of you were.

I’ll never forget our first ‘birth day’ together……this day remains one of the best in my life…. and 14 years later, I love you 400 times as much, if that’s even possible! H

appy birthday, my babies! Here’s to many more birthdays together!!

I love you forever and always, no matter what! #Turning14 #ProudMomma #TheYearOfIphones.

Kate Gosselin is Tired

We wish these exes could work out their issues in private, but that has never been their way.

Kate has even signed on to star in a new TLC dating show, which at least a few people out there will probably watch for some reason.

Overall, however, we simply wish the best for Collin and all his siblings.

May they find peace amidst their parents' never-ending war.

Kate and Jon Gosselin: Yup, They STILL Hate Each Other!

According to an old adage, time heals all wounds.

According to Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin, however, well...

... the other person just sucks so very much that the wounds of their failed marriage and their doomed relationship will only grow worse and worse as time goes on.

Jon Gosselin, Hannah

The ex-couple got divorced WAY back in 2009, yet going their separate ways did little to each the tension between these parents of eight.

As recently as this past November, we documented how the stage may be set for an explosive custody battle between the D-Listers, just a few months after they engaged in a very ugly actual fight.

In August of 2017, Kate and Jon got into a heated argument over who would drive their daughter home from the orthodontist, with poor Hannah literally stuck in between.

At the time, In Touch Weekly wrote that the teenager “screamed, sobbed, and violently resisted” while Kate grabbed a hold of her arm and tried to force her out of the vehicle.

How awful, right?

And how confusing and disturbing, right?

That two people who were once married and in love and who now must serve as co-parents can STILL get into this sort serious tiff all these years later?

Kate Plus a Pair

On the occasion of their sextuplets turning 14 on Thursday, both Jon and Kate wished their kids a happy birthday.

But an insider told Entertainment Tonight that Jon and Kate are "still at odds," nearly a decade after their legal break-up.

"They will never agree about how to raise the children," the source explains, adding that the pair "absolutely despise one another and can't stand to even be in the same room."

As a result, the ex-spouses won't be celebrating Collin, Hannah, Joel, Alexis, Leah and Aaden's birthday together - but they each acknowledged the milestone on Instagram.

"Happy 14th Birthday to Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin!!! I can’t believe it’s been this long!!!" wrote Jon, adding:

"Whew that when fast!!! Daddy loves you all very much!!!"

Not according to his twins, Jon doesn't.

But anyway...

14 image

Kate, who will soon start dating in front of reality TV cameras, shared the above birthday cake photo.

She included with it a lengthy caption that reads:

Happy 14th Birthday, my ‘babies’. 14 years ago almost to the minute, I was in my wheelchair, making my way around the ENTIRE NICU, meeting each of you face to face for the very first time.

I’ll never forget how tiny yet perfect each of you were.

Alexis’s blonde hair, Aaden’s teeny tiny face, with alert awake eyes that didn’t miss a thing, Hannah and her adorable ‘human doll’ face, Collin looked SO big and strong at 3 entire pounds (the biggest!), Leah had the most beautiful head of dark soft hair and Joel— literally just slept peacefully like he was at the beach in the sun!

I’ll never forget our first ‘birth day’ together......this day remains one of the best in my life.... and 14 years later, I love you 400 times as much, if that’s even possible!

Happy birthday, my babies! Here’s to many more birthdays together!! I love you forever and always, no matter what!

Kate Gosselin is Tired

It really is an awful shame that Kate and Jon cannot be remotely amicable in front of their kids.

How hard would it be to put on fake smiles and co-host a birthday party for their teenages, right?

Very hard, apparently.

The best we can hope for at this point is that each keeps his or her feelings to him or herself when around the children and doesn't actually bad mouth Mom or Dad when alone with the children.

But knowing Kate and Jon as we sort of do, this seems like too much to ask for.

Gosselin Twins to Jon: You Don’t Love Us!

DISCLAIMER:

We're very sorry that the Gosselin family is back in the news.

Trust us, we wish this were not the case and that you never had to read about Kate or Jon ever again.

Kate Plus Eight (8)

But Kate Gosselin has actually signed on to anchor her very own dating show, and she's agreed to a deal with People Magazine to promote said show.

As part of this deal, the publication actually spoke on record to 17-year old twins Mady and Cara, about whom Kate recently said the following when it comes to her love life:

“Now that they’re older and talking about dating and how they’re all gonna get married someday … it became apparent: they want someone for me.

"They want me to have somebody in my life."

Along these lines, except the exact opposite, Mady and Cara have opened up to People and said some rather harsh things about their dad.

Specifically, they claim that Jon Gosselin is NOT a person who is currently in their life.

"He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane,” Mady says, adding:

“He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen."

jon ad

Wow, huh? Ouch!

Back in November, we reported that Jon was going to fight for custody of his children.

But take one look at his Instagram page and you may not even realize he has children, considering the entire thing is practically filled with nothing but posters such as the one above.

That is, ads for Jon's appearances at various clubs that have hired him as a DJ for some reason.

"He doesn’t even know us,” Mady also tells People. “How can he dare to talk about us?

This is the harshest and most straightforward we've ever heard any Gosselin kids speak about their father.

Jon did wish his twins a happy 17th birthday six months ago, but that was the last reference he made to them on social media.

twins tribute

Kate and Jon rose to fame well over a decade ago as the leads of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

They surprised absolutely no one who watched their painful marriage on television when they announced their separation in 2009.

Since then, Jon has focused on his DJing career, while battling Kate for custody of the twins and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Joel, who turn 14 next month.

However, in August of 2016, Mady and Cara said that they weren’t speaking to their dad, who had given interviews to some media outlets about his strained relationship with his daughters.

Of course, Kate has also discussed her kids often in public.

Kate Gosselin, Twins

This right here is a photo of them on the set of The View.

But one big difference, it seems, is that Kate hasn't bad-mouthed her sons or daughters.

She hasn't blamed them for any kind of poor relationship and she has seemingly always asked for their permission any time they were placed in the spotlight.

Don't get us wrong, Kate Gosselin sucks a whole lot, too.

We aren't very big fans of her and we'd rather watch Chrisley Knows Best over her ridiculous upcoming dating show

But she does seem to at least know the names of all her children.

We're not entirely sure the same thing can be said of Jon.

Kate Gosselin: Going Broke? On Verge of Losing Kids?

According to a new report, Kate Gosselin is not enjoying a very merry Christmas.

And she may have an even worse new year.

Kate Plus a Pair

The mother of eight (that's still so very hard to believe... she's a mother of EIGHT!) is allegedly suffering through some pretty severe financial hardships.

She somehow managed to convince TLC to air a new season of Kate Plus 8 this past year, but only three episodes aired over the summer.

Moreover, Gosselin does not have anywhere near the clout she once possessed.

Ratings haven't been strong for that program for years now, meaning she couldn't command a very high salary during recent negotiations.

Those three episodes didn't yield Gosselin much in the way of revenue - and there are no plans, as far as we know, for any more to hit the air.

Don't just take our word for these issues, however.

Gosselin Children

Their parents may suck, but these kids are adorable. We pray for their future.

This is what an insider recently told Life & Style:

"Kate no longer has the income she once had from the show. The money is running out fast .... Private school alone costs about $150,000 a year."

Seriously, simply raising eight kids is a very expensive endeavor.

Many fans of the reality star likely aren't even aware that Gosselin used to work as a nurse.

This has the potential to be a highly-paid occupation, but there's one problem:

"She's let her nursing license lapse," the aforementioned source explains. "And she hasn’t been a nurse in so long anyway.

Not having enough money to afford basic needs for her kids is one thing; but Gosselin also now fears that her monetary situation will open the door to her actually losing her kids.

"That’s Kate's biggest fear," the unnamed insider alleges. "She dreads Jon will have more say and possibly even more custody which she's fought nonstop to keep from him."

Annoying ex-husband Jon is reportedly ready to pounce.

Said someone with knowledge of the circumstances to Hollywood Life in November:

"Jon's one and only goal in life right now is getting more time with his kids. He's doing everything he can to win their next custody battle."

Indeed, things may soon get very explosive between the Gosselins.

It's not as though they're known for resolving disputes in an amicable and peaceful manner regardless of what's at stake.

So you can imagine how ugly it may get when the future of their sons and daughters are up for legal debate.

Earlier this year, Jon took an IT job. He now has a steady flow of income.

Combined with Kate going in the opposite financial direction, the estranged former spouses may find themselves standing across from a judge at some point in the near future.

And, as previously reported, Jon will stop at nothing to crush his ex in court.

Buckle up, celebrity gossip fans.

Jon and Kate Plus AWKWARD

Because dignity pays jackshit, here's the Gosselins filming new episodes of Jon and Kate Plus 8 this afternoon. Clearly things were awkward considering Jon decided to parade his 22-year-old gold-digging girlfriend in front of the paparazzi all weeke ...read full story


Jon and Kate Gosselin Reunite; Things are Weird

Kate Gosselin may have heard about Jon's new girlfriend.

Returning from a romantic weekend jaunt to St. Tropez, France, with Hailey Glassman yesterday, Jon Gosselin was seen at the family's Wernersville, Pa., home.

Jon and Kate played with their eight kids outside, but barely spoke to each other. With people saying he's secretly engaged to someone else, it's kinda awkward.

Kate goofed around with her children, even riding a tricycle herself, and while Jon Gosselin joined in on the fun, he and Kate didn't interact very much at all.

Both Jon and Kate have pledged to focus on the needs of their eight children as they go forward with their divorce, which will end a tumultuous 10-year union.

"Our goal is to do the very best for our children," they said in a statement last month, echoing the theme of the last new episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

J. GosselinGrating

Jon and Kate Gosselin in happier times. Or at least previous times.

Recently, the couple put their differences aside while they celebrated the Fourth of July as a family. That appeared to be a civil, even pleasant affair.

But that was before Jon went public with Hailey Glassman, his 22-year-old ditzy, party animal, possibly-bisexual girlfriend and the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate's post-sextuplets tummy tuck operation. Pretty rough.

After their odd playtime, Kate packed her bags, hugged her kids and drove off, leaving Jon with the brood. No word on how many fist-pumps ensued.

A observer reports that after Kate left, Jon spent a lot of time on the phone outside and, from what they could tell, "looked very angry and frustrated."

Wonder if Hailey Glassman's already cheating on him ...

Former Lesbian Lover of Hailey Glassman to Jon Gosselin: Watch Your Back!

Joy Lawlor, who claims she was Hailey Glassman’s lesbian lover for three years, has a stern warning for Jon Gosselin: Hailey will wreck your life!

“You are wasting your time with Hailey. She’ll destroy you,” Joy said.

Hailey Glassman and Jon Gosselin went public after Jon and Kate Gosselin announced they were ending their marriage on an episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

Jon, 32, took Hailey, 22, to France over the weekend. Meanwhile details of Hailey’s wild party girl past thrust her into the spotlight back home.

Now Joy Lawlor is warning Jon Gosselin that he has no idea what he’s stepped into and that Hailey Glassman is just using him to become famous.

“The last thing Jon needs to do is stick around that woman,” Lawlor said in an interview with Radar Online. “Hailey will use him to make herself famous and then she will leave him for someone else she can profit from."

“Anyone, be they male or female, is a target. She just wants to make people do whatever she wishes. That’s what she is going to do to Jon. The best thing he could do is get as far away as possible from her. She is just toxic.”

Joy Lawlor, 23, was at student at Indiana University.

There's where Hailey contacted her through MySpace.

“I was 18, studying biology and I put on my profile that I was a lesbian,” she said. “Hailey said she was interested in going to IU. She also said she was interested in lesbianism. When she finally joined IU she said it had mainly been because of me."

“We became close and began making out in my apartment. Soon she told me she loved me,” says Joy, but things started to go downhill. “It was Hailey who introduced me to cocaine. I did it with her in her dorm room. She was also smoking marijuana.”

This class act? We would never have guessed ...

Lawlor said of Hailey: “For a girl so young she was very wild, both for drugs and for sex. She kept saying that I was her first lesbian love but I didn’t believe her."

“I was having a great time with Hailey at IU and all my lesbian friends liked her. But having one girl clearly wasn’t enough for Hailey, she kept begging me to have threesomes with her and another girl." That's how it always unravels ...

Jon Gosselin Engaged to Hailey Glassman, Tabloid Reports

In the most hilarious wedding rumor we've heard in some time, In Touch Weekly is reporting in its new issue that Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman are engaged.

Wow. And we thought OK! Magazine's story about Debbie Rowe demanding $100 million in exchange for giving up custody of Michael Jackson's kids was absurd.

According to this reputable celebrity news source, Jon and his new party animal girlfriend decided to tie the knot after he proposed on their trip to St. Tropez.

Reportedly, the couple is already planning the wedding and entertaining the idea of getting hitched in Las Vegas. We're definitely holding our breath for that.

Jon Gosselin Engaged?

An "insider" told the magazine that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 papa gave Hailey a $180,000 engagement ring featuring four black diamonds surrounding a skull.

While that does sound like the sort of thing a d-bag such as Jon Gosselin might pick out, there is no way he is possibly engaged to Hailey Glassman, since:

  • His divorce proceedings with Kate Gosselin are barely underway, making it impossible to legally marry Hailey anytime soon even if he wanted to.
  • This would torpedo any chance of Jon & Kate Plus 8 coming back on the air, and face it, dude has eight mouths to feed and needs the money.
  • Appealing as it may be to date someone who is the complete opposite of grating wife Kate, no way Jon marries this complete ditz. No way.

Come on. Look at this piece of work. Does this look like a model stepmom to you? Click to enlarge more Hailey Glassman pictures below and see our point:
