If you thought Jon was rushing to DVR ‘Kate Plus 8’ to keep tabs on his ex-wife, think again! Jon never watches Kate on TV!
Jon Gosselin is taking the high road. Even though ex-wife Kate Gosselin made repeated jabs at him on Today by insinuating he’s a deadbeat dad, Jon doesn’t say one nasty thing about Kate in his last-ever interview with In Touch. Instead, he says he couldn’t care less what his ex-wife is up to and his main focus is leading a “normal life” with his girlfriend of over one year, Ellen Ross.
“That’s her life. I don’t really have anything to say about it,” he said. “As soon as I left TV, I stopped watching everything.” Ouch!
The world watched Jon and Kate’s marriage fall apart on their hit TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8, and it was followed by their bitter divorce in 2009. But despite being called a cheater and a fame-hungry dad, Jon says the divorce was the best thing that ever happened to him.
“It’s changed me for the better. I know who I am now,” Jon says. “I was very young when I got married, and then certain things happened, and I’m a much stronger person than I was. I’m much more independent.”
But Jon isn’t looking to win back Kate — he says his new girlfriend Ellen, 24, is nothing like her — and said it’s refreshing to be with someone who isn’t interested in becoming a celebrity.
“I think it’s reassuring to find someone who doesn’t want the spotlight and is able to ignore gossip and rumors,” Jon says. “I think we complement each other very well.”
Jon’s main focus right now is his 9-5 job installing solar farms and “building a normal life for [my kids] for them when they come off TV.”
We’re glad Jon has his priorities straight — maybe Kate will follow suit!
