“We’re talking about someone who abused my son, who went out of his way to break up the family. Who sided with a network to break up the family. And did horrible, horrible things, to get away from my So until my other kids understand what happened and stop believing in a one-sided story, there’s nothing else I can do,” Jon told Entertainment Tonight.

The Gosselins have been publicly feuding for years, with much of the talk stemming from the conflicting accounts surrounding their son Collin.
Collin, one of the former couple’s sextuplets, claims his mother kicked him out and exhibited “abusive” behavior towards him. However, Kate and her eldest daughter, Mady, who is not in contact with Jon, recently blamed Collin, saying he ‘showed hateful and even violent behavior’ when they lived together. .

Kate shared her own statement on Instagram, writing, “Collin’s distorted perception of reality is one of the many issues he has always struggled with. As many people including family members can attest. struggle with mental health issues, it’s rarely and it’s sadly surprising when full fabrications happen, and that’s just another heartbreaking side to this fight,” she explained.
“All parent-child relationships are complex, but when mental illness is involved, it’s incredibly complicated and painful, let alone easy for others to understand.”

“My message to Mady is that I love her, but please give Collin a chance,” he told the outlet. “You haven’t spoken to or seen him in 7, 8 years. He hasn’t done anything to you. And you have to treat people the way you’d like to be treated.”

“How can you say those things about your brother…Where does that come from,” Jon questioned. “We all know where it came from. It came from Kate. Exactly Kate’s words.”

“But if it was someone else, I’d be against him, that’s for sure.”
Collin, who is currently in training camp for the Marines, said nothing about the controversy in his letters home, Jon noted.
As for his other children: sextuplets Joel, Aiden, Leah and Alexis and twins Mady and Cara, Jon urges them to reach out to him.
“The message should be that they contact me. Because I tried to contact them. And it failed. Many times. Every time I go to New York, I contact my daughter Cara. And I’m not not blocked, because of the way the iPhone works. But I never get a reply. So I don’t know if anyone is monitoring… you have those conspiracy theories in mind, but how much is enough to keep on do it ?”
