In only a few short years, Jon Gosselin went from inviting the public into his home every week, to working in a restaurant and pulling a gun when confronted by the paparazzi. And now, on Oprah: Where Are They Know?, he’s inviting the camera back in to provide fans with an update on his life without the cameras constantly rolling.
Jon offered some insight into the relationship with his ex-wife and mother of his eight children, Kate.
“I don’t really have a relationship with Kate,” Jon admitted, revealing that they mostly text about things related to the custody of their eight children. “I wish her the best in all that she does, [we are] just moving in two totally different directions.”
He also revealed that their large brood have their own wardrobes, etc., at each of their parents’ homes, making his contact with Kate even more minimal.
“I don’t know what goes on in Kate’s house, and she really doesn’t know what goes in my house,” he tells Oprah.
While he seems to be satisfied with the lack of communication, he can’t only think about himself; he has eight young children to worry about, too.
“At this point there is no cooperation,” he said. “Just two different parenting styles, two totally different everythings—which is a shame because it affects me, but it really affects my children.”
