Daddy issues. Jon Gosselin claimed in a new interview that he doesn’t know where his son Collin is, and said that his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, refuses to tell him where their 12-year-old boy is.
“I have an idea where he is but I don’t really know where he is,” Jon, 39, told Entertainment Tonight during a pretaped sit-down set to air Wednesday, November 16.
Though Kate, 41, has told Jon “that Collin is in a special school for special needs kids with behavioral problems,” the reality star turned DJ told ET that law enforcement has told him otherwise. (Collin will not be featured in the upcoming season of TLC’s Kate Plus 8.)
Jon went on to tell ET that he has not seen Collin in more than a year and a half, and is considering taking legal action against Kate if she does not tell him where the preteen is.
“I mean, I ask but she doesn’t tell me,” Jon said. “She doesn’t answer any of my texts.”
Jon currently has joint physical custody of their children — twins Mady and Cara, 16, and their 12-year-old sextuplets, Collin, Aaden, Alexis, Hannah, Leah and Joel — while Kate has full legal custody. Back in June, Jon told Yahoo that he had “no contact” with any of his kids.
The dad of eight also claimed to ET that Collin’s siblings are clueless when it comes to his current whereabouts. “They know that their mom told them that he has behavioral issues,” he said.
Despite Kate’s claims of “behavioral problems,” Jon told ET that Collin “seemed fine” the last time they saw each other, adding that his son is “really smart” and “incredibly intuitive.”
“I could see my kids getting annoyed with that because he’s the smartest and he does this, and he does that, and he always wants it his way,” he elaborated. “He’s very particular, which could be bothersome. But, he’s very loving too. He was a cuddly kid as a baby.”
