Jon Gosselin and his ex-wife, Kate, have been trying to deal with their divorce as amicably as possible for the sake of their children but the gloves are off now and the first round of this match goes to Jon Gosselin.
While Kate has remained diplomatic during her high profile interviews, refraining from publicly criticizing her former husband and his out of control behaviour, Jon has decided to spice things up a little – and all bets were off during his interview with Good Morning America this week.
Jon’s interview is making headlines all over the world as he reveals to millions of viewers that he “despises” Kate, “can’t trust her,” and is certain she stole his wedding ring.
When asked how he feels about Kate now that the dust has settled from news of their divorce, Jon said the following:
“… I don’t trust her anymore. I was abused … I was beaten down … I’m not going back to that life style. She knows the truth. I wish to God, she would speak from emotions … She’s not speaking from the heart. Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”
And how exactly did the 32-year-old father-of-eight feel after he finally mustered the courage to stand up to his wife?
“In 10 years, I’ve never gone out … When she said, ‘I don’t want you going out,’ I … I used to say, ‘OK, I’m not going to go out.’ I was very passive. This is the first time I said, ‘You know what? I want to see my friends. I’m going out. That was the first time in my life I ever stood up to Kate … I just felt like I had to take back some time in my life, and I did it. And I felt really good.
“I made my own decision … I was beaten down for so long, I couldn’t even make my own decision. And when I did, I was like, holy cow! You know? Yeah, what’s she gonna do? Divorce me? All right. Obviously. You know.”
As for rumors that Jon thinks Kate stole his wedding ring – those definitely aren’t just rumors.
When asked why he thinks Kate still wears her wedding ring, Jon replied by saying he thinks she wears it “for public perception” and insisted that he no longer has a ring because Kate took his.
“I don’t wear my ring because she took my ring…I don’t have a ring, so, I laid it down one day and it was gone. Who else would take it?”
And finally, when asked if his relationship could ever be fixed, a very blunt Jon replied with “no our relationship will never be fixed.”
