Jon Gosselin Reflects On Time Since Divorce From Kate

Jon and Kate Gosselin have been in the public eye ever since the pair had sextuplets after having twins. Their multiplying family became popular through the TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8. Unfortunately, fame seemed to take a toll on the marriage and the two divorced in 2010.

Since then, their petty battles with each other have made headlines constantly. 10 years later, Jon Gosselin tells Entertainment Tonight what he has learned since his time apart from Kate.

Unfortunately, the family is still divided. Only 2 of their children, Hannah and Collin live with Jon, the older twins Mady and Cara are at college and the rest of the sextuplets, Leah, Joel, Alexis, and Aaden live with Kate. "I wish that all my kids would just be together, hang out together, go to the mall."

"Kate and I don't live that far away from each other but I feel like there is an invisible wall," he explained of why the 2 mini families have not gotten together. Jon shifts the blame of why the children don't spend time together to his ex-wife when he says: "I feel like it's more on the other side."

When asked if he and Kate are in contact, apparently there is no co-parenting at all. "I don't hear from Kate. It's just totally like that person doesn't exist anymore."

For now, Jon is happy with the place he is in, more stable and with his girlfriend of six years Colleen Conrad. He claims he is more mature now and that is why this relationship is more successful. 

Jon admitted he recently took his ex-wife to court for filming with their kids without the proper work permits, saying "I think she would have done the same if I filmed with my kids without her written consent."
