Collin Gosselin is living away from his family to get help for his special needs — but his dad, Jon Gosselin, has NO idea where. Jon claims Kate Gosselin is refusing to tell him where their son’s school is, and he’s getting majorly frustrated about it. Watch here!
“No one knows where he is. I don’t even know,” Jon Gosselin tells Entertainment Tonight of his son, Collin, 12. “I have an idea where he is but I don’t really know where he is. Kate says that Collin is in a special school for special needs kids with behavioral problems.”
But that’s the extent of his knowledge on the situation. “I asked [where] but she doesn’t tell me,” he explains. “She doesn’t answer any of my texts unless they pertain to custody.” To prove his point, Jon texted his ex right in the middle of the sit down to ask if she plans on telling him where Collin is, but he made sure to inform the interviewer that she won’t answer.
The former TLC star is clearly frustrated by the situation, but says he knows exactly why Kate, who has primary custody, is being so coy with him. “It’s about money,” he reveals. “I think it’s about filming and money. If I get any right, I’m not going to sign for my kids to film and I think that’s her fear.”
Jon has made it clear that he doesn’t want his and Kate’s eight kids still doing reality television, but she’s continued to film Kate Plus Eight with them: In fact, another season of the show is premiering on Nov. 22!
As for Collin, Kate confirmed to People magazine in August that the 12-year-old has “special needs” and is developing “life skills” in his special program. Jon reportedly hasn’t seen the child in two years, according to InTouch. Yikes!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kate should tell Jon where their son is? Or does she not have to?
