Jon Gosselin is firing BACK after his 15-year-old twin daughters, Mady & Cara, bashed him in a tell-all interview where they referred to him as ‘toxic’ — ouch! In Jon’s emotional statement reacting to his girls’ harsh words, he expressed how ‘shocked’ and ‘upset’ he is by what they said — read his sorrowful words here!
Jon Gosselin, 39, the former reality star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, could NOT keep quiet after his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, 41, spoke to People mag, along with their children, about the difficult divorce the two went through in 2009. And while Kate stayed relatively tame when discussing personal details, it was the oldest Gosselin kids — twins Mady and Cara, 15, who REALLY laid into their dad.
The girls spoke ill of their estranged father, even questioning his intentions. “I’m very upset,” Jon revealed to ET after their interview was published. “I love my children very much. I’ve always been there for them and I always will be. It’s shocking.” And while Mady and Cara insist that their mother is not the reason they refuse to see their dad, Jon is not so convinced.
“It felt like [Kate] was segregating me,” Jon said, claiming that he hasn’t seen all eight of his kids together in “three to four years.” “I haven’t seen him for a really long time.” Jon went on to say that all the children use to come to his house, but then at some point the twins just stopped coming when they were 12 or 13 years old. “I didn’t question it. I was just like, ‘Hey, do what you want. Be with your friends,’ and then it just became, ‘They’re not coming,’” he told the publication.
“I see the twins at the gate [of the house when he goes to pick up some of the other children],” he concluded. “Last time I did anything with Mady was a year and a half ago.” We can only imagine how painful this must be for the father-of-eight. But apparently Mady and Cara seem to think he had it coming.
“He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen,” Mady told People. “He doesn’t even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?” Looks like the Gosselin family has some relationship mending to do — we wish them all the best.
How do you feel about the Gosselin twins dissing their father, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he deserved it?
