Jon Gosselin claims daughter Hannah does NOT miss her estranged mom Kate and feels 'snubbed' by brothers in family feud

Years after he appeared on Jon and Kate Plus Eight, Jon Gosselin sat down with Dr. Oz to look back on the TLC series and where the family is today, discussing the divide in the family and revealing how daughter Hannah — caught in the middle — feels.

Jon, 44, and Dr. Oz discussed the rift in the family, which has been ongoing for years.

The father of eight admitted he hasn't "spoken to my twins in eight years," adding: " I text them every single year."

Similarly, he said Hannah has "been snubbed by her brothers." She's been in contact with some of her sisters, however.

Hannah and Kate, her mother, remain estranged.

Asked if his daughter misses Kate, Jon said: "No, I know that. She feels a little bit slighted from what things have transpired. I know she misses Leah and Alexis. She's been snubbed by her brothers, so I don't know what's going on with that."

The former TLC star shared that daughter Hannah, 17, had recently been in touch with some of her siblings, getting together with them as they passed through Pennsylvania.

"Hannah talked to them and they visited the county near where we live now and Hannah had dinner with them 'cause Maddie goes to school in upstate New York," he recalled.

Jon confirmed that Colin, one of Hannah's siblings, did not attend.


Asked why he thought his children don't speak with him, Jon said: "I don't know."

He went on to suggest that they may not want to "upset" Kate by speaking to him, adding: "It's hard when you don't know."

Jon said he has attempted to reach out, and plans to contact his children once they turn 18 to attempt to reconnect.

He has tried to reach two of his daughters, but can't get through.

Jon revealed that he doesn't have some of his children's phone numbers, but could likely get them.

He fears, however, that trying to reach out could impact Hannah's relationship with her siblings.

Jon said on the daytime TV show: ext them. I don't know how I feel. I reach out to Maddie and Cara. I don't have the phone numbers of Leah and them. I don't want that to break down the relationship between Hannah and her siblings."


Although they are estranged, Jon was able to give an update on son Collin following their ugly fight.

He revealed of the 17-year-old: "My son recently enlisted in the service so he could graduate early or he could stay another year.

"He wants to go in the reserves, he's choosing between the army and the marines. He scored really well on his testing for the army."

Jon said he is focused on repairing the bond with his kids rather than dating right now amid a line of questions about his relationship status.

"I'm really just focused on those things, I'm not really focused on my status in the world or being with another woman," he said.

In September 2020, Jon was accused of "causing bodily injury to a child through recent act/failure to act: hitting/punching," in a report obtained by People.


Collin claimed Jon "beat" him in an Instagram post that has since been deleted.

It read: "My dad is a liar. 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."

Jon's rep told The Sun: "Jon has never abused Collin. No charges have been filed against him and there's no ongoing CYS investigation.

"Collin has endured severe trauma. Jon is a loving father who has worked hard to ensure that his son gets the support and help he needs."


During his appearance on the Dr. Oz show, Jon reflected on his time on the family TLC show.

He revealed that he recently returned to the home he and ex-wife Kate, 46, shared when they first became household names.

Although he, Kate, and their children have a strained relationship now, Jon looked back fondly on those memories, saying: "Those were good times."

He recalled feeling like a "unit," adding that it was good "'cause we were a family."

Jon also said the house seemed much smaller upon returning to it after all these years, admitting he initially thought: "'How did we fit in there?'"

He knocked on the door during his visit, but said he half-hoped his knock went unanswered.

He noted that a lot had changed about the house appearance wise since he and Kate lived there.
