Former reality star Jon Gosselin blasted his ex-wife Kate Gosselin in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine published on Friday, and didn't hold back with his choice of words.
“Everyone thinks I’m out to get Kate. I don’t give a f--k!” the 'Jon & Kate Plus Eight' star said. “What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she’s an a—hole, you know what I mean? I don’t have to – she’s proven that!” he told the magazine.
The torrent of criticism didn’t stop here. He continued to criticize Kate’s frequent use of social media, tweeting frequently about their children to the world. “I think it’s disgusting and awful. They can’t even have a normal life,” he added.
Jon Gosselin alleges that his ex-wife is still seeking fame and public attention. “Kate wants to still be on television. She’s now digging into the past, because that’s what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a f--k, really.”
Gosselin had been once been the star of America’s most-watched reality TV program and will soon appear in season 4 of VH1’s "Couples Therapy," along with girlfriend Liz Jannetta. He is currently working as a maître d' at a restaurant in rural Pennsylvania.
According to Philadelphia Magazine, ex-wife Kate had slapped a hefty lawsuit on Gosselin back in August, claiming that he had accessed her private information for the book, “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World,” by hacking into her phone and computer, and by swiping her hard drive. With no further progress in the case, charges were dropped in November.
In justification of his decision to appear again on TV, Jon Gosselin told the magazine, “We needed the therapy for our relationship ... We really couldn’t afford therapy. And it’s free therapy,” he added.
According to reports, Kate Gosselin has yet to respond to her ex's comments.
