Despite reports that Jon Gosselin and Ed Hardy fashion designer Christian Audigier spent the weekend finalizing a deal to launch a children's clothing line together, the designer's rep tells Usmagazine.com that no such project is happening.
"Christian is absolutely not starting a kids' clothing line with Jon," a rep for Audigier tells Us. "As of right now, there is no clothing line in the works between them at all." Gosselin — an Ed Hardy fan — and his 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey Glassman spent the past few days on board Audigier's yacht in St. Tropez in the French Riviera.
On Sunday, E! News reported the father of eight and Audigier met up in France to go over a possible business partnership. "We would like to do a line of children's clothing," Audigier, 51, told E! News. He added: "They're having fun. I"m taking care of them."
Why would the 32-year-old unemployed star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 want to delve into this line of work? He has long been a fan of Audigier's hip clothing line. On June 4, he wore a $275 red sweatshirt while unpacking luggage outside his home in Wernersville Pa. Two days later – while taking 8-year-old twins Cara and Mady to see Disney's Up — he donned a pair of $150 Ed Hardy jungle-inspired jeans (featuring two angry tigers on the rear).
"He seems to love our clothing," Tara Malia Gregory, the company's marketing director, previously told Us.
