Remember the infamous TLC reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8? It may have been years since the last new episode following Jon Gosselin’s split from his wife Kate but according to a new interview, the drama is still going strong as Jon claims to not know why he is estranged from 6 of his children.
Speaking to Vice TV about the upcoming docuseries Dark Side Of The 2000s, Jon opened up about where he stands with his famous family post-reality TV. “I have no access to the kids I’m estranged from,” he told the outlet, according to a write up from OK! Magazine. “I have no answers, like none, it’s the worst.”
“I’d rather they be like, ‘you’re an a**hole, I hate you, you did this to mom…'” he continued, explaining that he truly has no idea why 6 of his own children don’t talk to him. “I have nothing, I have no closure.”
Jon Gosselin was first introduced to reality TV viewers on TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8 back in 2007. The docuseries focused on the (at-the-time) married couple and their eight children: twins Cara and Mady, and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaeden, Collin, Leah, and Joel. The series aired until 2009, when a record-breaking episode documented the couple’s shocking divorce.
The series was later renamed Kate Plus 8 and aired for six seasons before being put on hiatus once again in 2009. According to recent interviews, Jon has no relationship with Alexis, Aaden, Leah, and Joel, and has not spoken to Cara or Mady in 9 years.
