Here we go again! Kate Gosselin has gotten a lot of heat for leaving her son Collin out of family activities, and she may have done it again on May 6, when she posted a photo of five of her sextuplets enjoying some ice cream, plus one empty chair on the end where Collin should be. Watch the video above to see the sad photo and fans' angry responses.
While fans are upset to see the family without Collin, there's a chance he actually was with them this time… or at least she's trying to make it look that way. "Rainy day ice cream…. #HowAreMyBabiesTurning14? #LoveThemAll (even the ones who refused to be in the pic?)," she wrote in the caption of the controversial photo. She could be refering to older siblings Cara and Mady, but some fans think she means Collin. "She did it again, wanted to get people attention and got it…Collin is there somewhere, but it is better for her to capture the attention," said an angry commenter.
Kate has been very vague about why Collin has been MIA for birthdays, holidays, and family events for the last three years. She said he's been placed in a program, because "Collin has special needs. [There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him — our entire family has been impacted."
Fans just want more solid answers. "Wish we could know the truth," said one fan. "I feel like I have a good idea. It would be nice to know. I think people will respect her more once they find out about Collin's issues. As a parent, I know the choice Kate had to make is devastating."
For his part, Jon doesn't even know where the 14-year-old is. "I have an idea of where he is, but I don’t know exactly where he is… I mean, I ask but she [Kate] doesn't tell me. She doesn't answer any of my texts," he said.
