Jon Gosselin had hit rock bottom and may end up in prison over it after allowing his finances to plummet to the point of no return and is unable to make his child support payments.
It wasn’t that long ago when he was a successful reality star with a large home paid for and plenty of money in the bank, but times have changed, and he’s fallen on bad times hard.
“I can’t afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tell me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support. I am a single father who’s trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do – pay child support or rent? I need to support my kids, but I could lose my house, and I need my home to continue to have custody,” he told Star in an exclusive interview.
“I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I’m going to end up in jail because I can’t afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money,” the former TLC star said. “I’m doing the best I can, but life is so expensive with eight kids!”
Jon and Kate divorced in 2009, which opened many doors for Kate in reality television. She has been on “Dancing with the Stars,” “Kate Plus 8,” and will soon be on the dating show. However, Jon Gosselin decided to shun reality TV and move to rural Pennsylvania.
Jon continues to turn his back on reality TV and even rebukes Kate’s upcoming work for her new show which will show her traveling across the United States looking for her perfect mate.
