Jon Gosselin Claims Ex-Wife Kate Refuses to Tell Him Where Their Son Collin Is

"Can't we just pretend the whole 'Jon' thing ever happened?"
“Can’t we just pretend the whole ‘Jon’ thing ever happened?”

Get ready for Jon v. Kate Round 750!

The exes and former stars of Jon and Kate Plus 8 had yet another verbal spar via the press this week. Kate Gosselin gave Extra an update on Collin, her 12-year-old son with Jon whom she claims has special needs. Jon was much appreciative of the public update, as it is apparently the first he’s heard about his son in a while. In his own press interview, Jon stated that he doesn’t actually know where Collin is.

“I have an idea where he is but I don’t really know where he is,” Jon told Entertainment Tonight of Collin, who lives separately from Kate and his seven siblings. “I mean, I ask but she doesn’t tell me. She doesn’t answer any of my texts.”

In previous interviews, Kate has stated that Collin lives away from home because he’s enrolled in a “program to help with his behavioral issues.”

During her interview with Extra, Kate said that Collin is “chugging along.”

“It’s a family experience that we are dealing the best we can with. Everyone’s got their stuff. Another bump in the road and we’re all doing the best that we can with it,” Kate said. “I am confident he is in the best hands and receiving the best of what’s being offered for his situation.”

Kate admitted that she does not talk to Jon, and that some of their kids don’t see their father.

“I don’t have a relationship with [Jon] — I’ve moved on,” she revealed. “I support the kids and their relationship [with him] — some visit, some choose not to, some visit sometimes. I support them and what they want so they can be happy and whole.”

During his Entertainment Tonight interview, Jon stated that, although he is supposed to have joint physical custody of Collin and his seven siblings, he has not seen Collin in over a year-and-a-half. He added that he is considering taking legal action against Kate if she continues to keep him in the dark on Collin and his whereabouts.

Jon told ET that, while Collin “always wants it his way,” he “seemed fine” the last time they were together.

“He’s the smartest [of the kids],” Jon added. “He’s very particular, which could be bothersome. But he’s very loving too.”

Collin will not appear on Kate’s reality show, ‘Kate Plus 8’ when the new season premieres on November 22. He was not seen in the new season’s trailer, and it’s unknown if Kate will discuss Collin’s issues and/or location during the new season.

Kate and Collin were recently in the headlines when it was revealed that Kate had been investigated for child abuse over the summer, due to some statements allegedly made by Collin about his mother.

  1. these kids need to be taken away! this is a severe case of parent alienation and narcissistic parenting. kate is so disgusting….

  2. What will Kate do in a few years when her kids are 18 and have a say in whether they want to participate in her circus? Jon needs to stop being all bark and actually bite this bitch back. Get yourself a lawyer and get rights to your kids. He has a right to know where his kid is. This may even help Colin along the way. If I had to bet Id say he is at the Horsham Clinic right outside of Philly. That place is known for dealing with children with mental illness and other special needs.

    1. The Horsham Clinic doesn’t do long term residential care though. It’s a month’słjdsh stay tops, even for children. I’d know because I’ve been in patient there.
      Most adults stay 1-2 weeks, while children can stay for longer, it’s rare, unless there’s extenuating circumstances, like say, an overbearing mother who demands their child stay longer. Unfortunately, that can, and does happen. But again, at least at Horsham it would be incredibly rare for a child to stay for many months on end.

      If I had to guess, I would say he’s out of state somewhere. Despite the fact that the parents share physical custody, which should prevent one parent from sending a child across state lines without permission from the other custodial parent, Kate has shown time and again that she doesn’t mind breaking the law, and stomping all over Jon’s rights as father.

      But seriously, if he actually cared then he would’ve gotten his shit together a long time ago, and actually tried to do something to get those poor kids away from their psychotic, abusive mother. Clearly he doesn’t care though, because he’s off partying, and DJ’ing at low class, unknown clubs throughout the city.

  3. I’m not the type to say one way or another who should have custody of kids or not, but I mean CLEARLY Kate is a poor excuse for a mother. Sure Jon is not stellar but I believe he would give the kids a normal life versus constantly shoving them into a spotlight they don’t want to be in to make money because she didn’t have anything else to fall back on financially outside of exploiting her own children for a paycheck. These poor children.

  4. I have always like Kate Gosslinband all of her children.. People have there own way of raising children and I am not the ultimate judge and jury. If I had a child that needed to leave my home to get the help he needed I would do everything in my power to make sure that child got the help he needed

  5. Sounds like Collin is an Aspie. His needs for control probably contradict with mom’s needs so she is choosing not to deal with him. It’s very sad that he was sent away and treated like he’s wrong or bad. It sounds like he’s highly intelligent and has a lot of potential.

    1. you are completely right. this is why i think her kids are victims of narcissistic parenting. those poor kids will have trouble with their relationships and self confidence for as long as they stay in contact with their deranged mother.

    2. I am wondering exactly what is going on with Colin (except that he has a psycho for a mom & no father). What’s the story?

  6. Well if not for anything as his father he has the right to know where their son is getting help. Kate is a super control freak whereas john is a lazy sack of shi*. But at the end of the day he’s 1/2 his son too…just sayin….

    1. Collin doesn’t want to see his father. Refuses to see Jon for years now. He probably would feel better knowing his dad doesn’t know where he is. Maybe CPS or the institute even ordered Kate not to tell him as long as possible so Collin doesn’t need to worry, who knows.
      However, the choice of words and lack of legal action by Jon suggests he is just creating drama for a quick buck.

      I notice the parent that has things to hide and doesn’t see he/ she needs treatment is always the one in disagreement with treatment for a child.
      They don’t want to hear what their actions have done to the emotional development of the child.
      It isn’t very nice, BF’s ex had that talk a few months ago after test results showed his son does not feel safe or bonded in his care. Even she felt sorry for her ex and started to defend him but if you decide at some point in your life it is a good idea to have kids than you are responsible for that child, nomatter what.
      Best thing I heard lately was a father who wanted his parental rights to be taken away ’cause it wasn’t his child anymore’. CPS has terminated the father’s visitation rights. He has been kicked out the CPS office by security twice. Lawyers offices too by the police. Judge said ‘no’ to his request and told both parents they need to suck it up and be the best parents they can be despite their past. Judge did order a full mental evaluation for the father.
      Now there is a good judge.

  7. I am a Mother of 7 Children…I don’t believe Collin has any kind of ‘Special Needs or Behavior Problems’ that merit Kate sending him away for 1 & 1/2 yrs! I understand that this does happen sometimes in family’s, but Not the Gosselins. We have all watched this family for years, and it’s obvious Kate has the Issue. I have NO duobt that in the future, we will all find out whatever this poor child Collin has been going thru, it’s something Kate Just Didn’t Want To Deal With. For example, if Collin has ADHD, the behavior can be challenging for any parent, but the right thing to do is to help your child and work with your child 24/7. You don’t just send your child away from everyone he loves and knows because they’re behavior doesn’t fit into your routine or Your Life KATE. I truely believe that Kate has just tossed her child away…who does that? Kate said ” we are moving on” and I say Someone Needs To Help Collin and all of Kate’s children. My god, all WE can do is Pray!

  8. Both parents are hideous. There is not enough money in the world for the amount of therapy those kids are going to need; they supersede Duggar-levels of effed-up.

    1. Nah, the Duggars need lots of time to learn how the real world works. Those kids are isolated and any form of thinking or acting by or for yourself is punished.
      Good parents buy gates to keep their kids safe while doing housework. Parents in a cult place them on a tiny blanket and show them how little room they have to move around as they please and who they should blindly follow and obey or else by hitting them with a wooden spoon.
      Surprisingly they create kids with seriously f-ed up sex (offender) problems.
