Let the mudslinging begin!
On Monday, Kate Gosselin of “Kate Plus 8” appeared on “Good Morning America” and set the record straight about some abuse allegations made by her ex-husband.
“There are reports that (Gosselin son) Collin told staffers at his treatment facility that he was abused by you,” Amy Robach said. “And child services has opened an investigation.”
“I am in the public eye. I have been investigated many times,” Kate Gosselin replied. “It’s always unfounded, obviously.”
Kate Gosselin has custody of the couple’s eight children — twins Cara and Mady, 16, and sextuplets Collin, Aaden, Alexis, Hannah, Joel and Leah, 12 — and is reportedly aware her ex-husband plans to take her to court over custody again.
While on “GMA,” she addressed the rumors that she does not keep Jon in the loop.
“We’re both court-ordered not the speak about the care and custody of our children in detail,” she said. “I have known all along where (Collin) is. The world doesn’t know. And, I’ll leave it at that.”
According to Jon Gosselin’s attorney, Kristen Doleva-Lecher, Kate isn’t telling Jon everything about their children.
“There is a court order and Jon is strictly abiding by it. The public doesn’t know the whole story,” Doleva-Lecher told E! News. “Jon is absolutely hurt by statements made about Collin and Jon’s role as his father. I can assure you that Jon is very concerned about all of his children. He is a loving father and he is acting in accordance with the law to do what’s right for the kids.”
In August, the mother of eight revealed that Collin was sent to a learning facility to help him “reach his full potential.” She told Robach that he is doing well since being away from home.
“He’s plodding along, and we are too, but it definitely was necessary. I will go to the ends of the Earth for the best for each one of them. This is the best thing I can do for him right now,” she said.
