The distance between the Gosselin family just got a little greater.
After recently selling her Pennsylvania home, Kate Gosselin has reportedly relocated to North Carolina, along with four of the eight children she shares with ex-husband Jon Gosselin.
Jon and Kate’s 20-year-old twin daughters Mady and Cara, who are currently away at college, did not make the move to North Carolina with their mom and siblings, nor did Collin and Hannah, the two sextuplets of whom Jon maintains custody.
“Kate picked up and moved the kids down to North Carolina to spend their junior and senior years there with a totally new life,” a source told Hollywood Life. “The two girls are in no rush to go to North Carolina. They weren’t happy about the move because they have no friends there.”
Kate listed the $1.2 million home – previously seen on Jon & Kate Plus 8 – back in October for $815,000. At the time, Jon said Collin and Hannah were “a little upset” that they were not given the opportunity to do a walkthrough of their childhood home before it went on the market.
Though the house has since been sold to new owners, Jon revealed to Dr. Oz earlier this month that Collin “works next door” to the home, sees it everyday and “didn’t really express anything” after the house was purchased by the new owners.
During the same interview, Jon talked about the strained relationship he has with his kids (besides Collin and Hannah), claiming “there’s just a disconnect.”
“ … Whether it’s parent alienation or you know, I can’t really reach out to them and there’s legalities,” he said. “I can’t like go to where they move, you know? It’d be trespassing and those kinds of things, so I mean, I guess my plight to them or what I want to say is I love you, my door is always open, you’re welcome anytime. There’s no regrets or hard feelings or any of those negative things … you can always come see me or come see Hannah and Collin.”
According to Jon, Hannah hasn’t seen Kate in a year or two, while Collin hasn’t seen Kate “in years.”
