Jon Gosselin is excited about the year 2017, and it may be because he got to spend the holiday with four of his eight kids.
Earlier this year, Jon told a few media outlets that his custody situation is not great. Kate currently retains full legal custody, while Jon has partial physical custody.
However, the twins Mady and Cara have definitely hit that teenage stage where they hate their dad, so they haven’t been speaking for a while.
Jon said he got to have weekly dinners with his kids—but Kate only allowed four of the kids to go at one time. And it wasn’t like Jon got to see them all an equal amount; he said he didn’t get to ask to see a certain kid, he just got to spend time with whoever showed up.
But at least four of his kids showed up for New Year’s with their dear old dad. The 39-year-old DJ snapped a selfie with Aaden, Joel, Hannah, and Leah, along with his girlfriend Colleen.
These four seem to be on continued good terms with their dad, as they also visited him for Fourth of July.
Meanwhile Collin is still nowhere to be found. According to Jon, Kate took Collin out of his private school without consulting him.
A recent PEOPLE magazine interview revealed that Collin has special needs and Kate sent him to a treatment facility so that he could “learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be.”
But Jon has said that only Kate knows where Collin is. “I mean, I ask but she doesn’t tell me. She doesn’t answer any of my texts,” he told ET.
He also claimed that Kate kept Collin’s siblings in the dark and that they have “no idea” where he is. “They know that their mom told them that he has behavioral issues.”
Clearly Jon doesn’t trust Kate completely. And that’s probably why he wants to get his own story out there!
A fan commented on Jon’s New Year’s picture, asking him to do a show or a special from his point of view.
His response? “Working on it.”
