They’re the exes that just won’t stop fighting.
Though Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin were married for 10 years and birthed eight children together — a set of twins and a set of sextuplets — the former husband and wife haven’t been on good terms in years. In fact, it appears most of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars’ bickering has occurred in the media as Jon has maintained countless times that his relationship with Kate is “nonexistent.”
“I don’t have a relationship with Kate. There is no relationship. Text and email. That’s it,” Jon has revealed. “The nanny comes out and I exchange the kids at her gate or at the bus stop. I don’t physically see [Kate].”
