Jon Gosselin's Lawyer Says Kate Gosselin Isn't Telling the Whole Truth About Their Son Colin
The mother-of-eight spoke out on Good Morning America in a pre-taped interview that aired on Monday morning. She opened up about her son, Colin, who has moved out of the house to take part in a special program that teaches him how to deal with his “educational and social challenges.” In the interview, she denied Jon’s claims that she had left him in the dark regarding the situation.
“We’re both court-ordered not the speak about the care and custody of our children in detail,” she told host Amy Robach on GMA. “I have known all along where he is. The world doesn’t know. And, I’ll leave it at that.”
Kate—who has full legal custody of twins Cara Gosselin and Mady Gosselin, 16, and sextuplets Colin, Aaden Gosselin, Alexis Gosselin and Hannah Gosselin, Joel Gosselin and Leah Gosselin, 12—is also unfazed by any plans Jon has to take her back to court for custody.
“I’ve lost track how many times he has said that,” she said, point-blank. “I’m really focused less on what he has to say.”
However, Jon’s attorney Kristen Doleva-Lecher spoke to E! News exclusively and said Kate isn’t telling the whole truth.
“There is a court order and Jon is strictly abiding by it. The public doesn’t know the whole story,” she explained. “Jon is absolutely hurt by statements made about Colin and Jon’s role as his father. I can assure you that Jon is very concerned about all of his children. He is a loving father and he is acting in accordance with the law to do what’s right for the kids.”
Meanwhile, Kate also spoke to People magazine about her son’s treatment.
“This is all new to me, and to our family,” she said of Colin living away from home. “I don’t know what the road ahead entails, but I’m very happy with the care that he’s getting, and am still completely comforted by the fact that he is so clearly exactly where he needs to be, getting precisely what he needs — it comforts me as a mother, because when you, as a mom, can’t give your kids what they need, it is a huge comfort to find people who can.”
Despite missing Colin at home, Kate says, “He’s where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that.”
