Is Jon Gosselin Abusing His Son? He Says No, Ex-Wife Kate Says Yes

Remember Jon and Kate Gosselin, the parents of eight children who had a reality show because Jon wanted to put his dick in a vagina that hadn’t had squeezed eight human beings squeezed through it? Me either, but they’re back in the news with E! reporting that their son Collin accused Jon of punching him in the face and kicking him, things that it goes without saying are not okay to do to your kid, even if he is 16.

“My dad is a liar,” Collin reportedly wrote in a since-deleted post reviewed by People. “Yesterday he beat me up and thought nothing of it, he punched me in the face and gave me a swollen nose and I started bleeding. He then continued to kick me in the ribs after I was on the floor. He is a liar.”

Now, the last time we heard from these two, who, just by the way, did less to become famous than the Kardashians, it was Kate who Collin and his sister Hannah were accused of being abusive. But now Kate is up on her high horse when just a couple of years ago her daughter said she’d rather go to foster care than with her mother,

“You do not punch and kick your children,” Kate told People. “You do not kick a child. I don’t want to hear any excuses from anyone, not from his father, not from local law enforcement, not from court personnel whose job is supposedly to ensure the best interests of my children. There is a child abuse law, PA 23, section 8i states that doing any of the following, regardless of whether it causes injury, is child abuse, and first on that list is kicking. Period.”

Kate added, “I don’t want my children around him. Enough is enough.”

Does anyone else think it’s strange she knows that statute offhand like that? Like, if she had said “Kicking a child under any circumstance is considered abuse in Pennsylvania,” that would be one thing. But she had PA 23 Section 8i just loaded up and ready to go. She is right on the money, although she left out the chapter and sub-chapter.

Look, if Jon really is hitting Collin, then he needs to lose custody at minimum. But it’s not like Kate is some stellar mother, she didn’t even show up to contest Jon asking for full custody and never seemed to like Collin.

Another thing is no one has confirmed that Collin actually made the deleted Instagram post accusing Jon of punching and kicking him. I tend to be very suspicious of people who sudden claim their former partner is abusive in custody hearings. I’m not saying they’re never true, but I am saying that people get… let’s call it Woody Allen… more often than you’d hope.
