Jon Gosselin made shocking allegations about his ex-wife Kate Gosselin in a new interview with DailyMailTV. The reality-tv-star-turned-DJ claims his ex-wife was mentally abusive to their son, 15-year-old Collin Gosselin, and "sent him away" to a special needs institution even though he didn't nee to be there. Jon told DailyMailTV that removed Colin from Fairmont Behavioral Health Institute last year after Collin wrote him a note written in crayon, begging to be taken home.
Jon shared the contents of the letter, which reportedly reads: “Dear Dad, I’m not trying to trick you, but I still love you. I told Mom I want to live with you, she said no. But right? She can’t choose for me. I’m old enough now, I’m YOUR son, not hers. She was abusive to me after I left your house. I’m sorry. Take this to court because … you’re my dad, my savior.”
According to Jon's allegations, after Collin was diagnosed with ADHD, Kate "couldn’t deal with him," so she enrolled him in a special needs institution. “He was alone for three and a half years with no parents, all alone," Jon said in the interview. "It was inhumane. Other than ADHD, which is extremely common, Collin has never been diagnosed with any known medical condition, there's nothing wrong with him."
Following his removal from the institution, Jon claims Collin has been diagnosed with PTSD. "I know my children have suffered abuse and I know one day they're going to tell their own story. And sadly enough, I know what PTSD is. It's really upsetting," he said. "Kate is not doing the shows for her family, Kate is doing it for herself. She's narcissistic and selfish. That's it. Period. All of this is for her -- 'Kate Plus Eight,' 'Kate Plus Date,' it's her name first. She always speaks for the children. It's all lies. They all have voices."
Besides Collin and his sextuplet Hannah, Jon is not currently on speaking terms with any of his other children. He believes Kate "poisoned my children's minds against me." Now Jon wants to tell his side of the story. "It's time America found out the truth about Kate, she isn't the person you think she is," Jon argues in the interview.
Jon then addressed long-running rumors that he was unfaithful to Kate during their marriage. "I never cheated on my wife, I'm not a monster, I love my children more than anything," he claims. "There's a lot of stuff I want to dispel -- there's a lot of untruths."
