The divorce between Jon and Kate Gosselin was nothing short of messy. Their highly publicized split involved accusations of cheating, substance abuse, and overall tensions in the house.
Once it was all settled, Kate ended up with full legal custody of the kids, Jon had partial physical custody. Doesn't mean things have gotten any easier.
Jon has recently spoken out about his oldest daughters, Mady and Cara, saying he never gets to see them because Kate is unaccommodating. Mady spoke out, saying she doesn't even want to see him anyways because he's not a good father. Ouch.

But now, things have gotten a little more serious. Jon Gosselin is claiming that Kate will not tell him where his 12-year-old son, Collin, is. She recently announced that she sent Collin to a special school away from home to "help him cope with special needs." The reality star will not say what these needs are, but Collin will not be in the new season of the family's reality show. Kate has been very private about where she has sent Collin, with even the other siblings being left in the dark.
"I have an idea where he is but I don't really know where he is," Jon told ET. "[Kate] says that Collin is in a special school for special needs kids with behavioral problems." However, Jon says he's been told otherwise by law enforcement officials, but he would not clarify what that meant.
"I mean, I ask but she doesn't tell me," Jon says about Collin's current whereabouts. "She doesn't answer any of my texts."
Collin Gosselin, 12, has been sent to a school for 'behavioral problems.'
Jon says he never saw any behavioral problems in Collin, but said he was always really smart and incredibly intuitive.
"I could see my kids getting annoyed with that because he's the smartest and he does this, and he does that, and he always wants it his way," he says. "He's very particular, which could be bothersome. But, he's very loving too. He was a cuddly kid as a baby."
Kate revealed in an interview that there is a "fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we've had for a very long time, and it's one I've dealt with on my own."
Jon took offense to the notion that she has been by herself. "I love my children very much. I've always been there for them and I always will be. It's shocking."
Hopefully things get sorted out in the family. While there may be tension between mom and dad, it's always important to come together for the kids.
