This is only going to get uglier. Jon and Kate Gosselin are reportedly going to court to work out the custody fate of their son, Collin, in December, according to Radar Online. This face-off is sure to be intense!
Jon and Kate’s daughter, Hannah, reportedly “lives permanently” with Jon already, but now, the father of eight wants Collin to live with him, too. Collin reportedly “prefers to hang out with his dad over Kate,” an insider exclusively told In Touch magazine, and when he leaves the facility he’s been living in allegedly to help him with his special needs since 2016, he may want to go with Jon rather than his mom, who placed him in the away-from-home program.
Radar Online reported on Nov. 26 that both Kate and Jon are expected to appear in a Pennsylvania courtroom on Dec. 4 to attend a hearing about Jon’s custody filing for the 14-year-old boy. Jon filed for full legal and physical custody on Oct. 24, reportedly claiming it would be in Collin’s best interest to live with him after he is released from the facility. Now, the ex-spouses will go head-to-head in a courtroom to determine whether that’s where the teenager will end up when all is said and done.
For now, Collin still technically lives at the facility, but seems to have regular weekend visits with his dad. During one such visit earlier this month, barber Eric Rodriguez — a friend of Jon’s — told Radar Online after cutting Collin’s hair that, “He looks really, really good,” which is excellent news!
Plus, on Nov. 25, Jon shared a sweet photo on Instagram featuring Collin and Hannah at a Christmas tree farm with his girlfriend, Colleen Conrad, and her children. That could indicate that Collin is spending a lot of time with his dad and sister, potentially to help him prepare to move in with them when he is officially released from treatment. But that will all depend on what a judge has to say about his living arrangements. Stay tuned.
