Jon and Kate plus animosity. Former reality star Jon Gosselin had some choice words regarding ex-wife Kate Gosselin in a new interview with Philadelphia Magazine published Friday, Dec. 27.

"Everyone thinks I'm out to get Kate. I don’t give a f-ck!" said the father of eight, 36, who sat down last month with Oprah Winfrey and told her that his children have problems "developmentally." He added to the mag, "What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she’s an a--hole, you know what I mean? I don’t have to—she’s proven that!"

His ex-wife, 38, slapped him with a hefty lawsuit back in August, claiming that Jon had accessed private information for the book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, alleging that he hacked into her phone and computer and swiped her hard drive. The charges were dropped against both the writer Robert Hoffman and Jon in November, according to Philadelphia Magazine

"She tweets everything. To the world, all about my children," he added of his ex during the interview. "I think it’s disgusting and awful. They can’t even have a normal life."

Once the star of America's most-watched reality TV program, Gosselin is currently making ends meet in his newly promoted position as a Maître d' at a restaurant in rural Pennsylvania. He told Philadelphia that his stint as a waiter, "keeps me normal.”

He alleges that his ex, however, is still seeking fame. "Kate wants to still be on television. She’s now digging into the past, because that’s what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a f-ck, really.”

"We needed the therapy for our relationship," he told the mag. "We really couldn’t afford therapy. And it’s free therapy," he said in an attempt to justify his decision to appear once again on TV. The series begins Jan. 2.
