Jon Gosselin Admits His Other Kids "Aren't Talking To Me" After Winning Custody Of Collin

It's a painful case of "you win some, you lose some" for former reality TV star Jon Gosselin.

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 star recently gained full custody of his son, Collin, after a years-long legal fight with his ex-wife.

But while he's now on good terms with two of his children, Collin and his sister Hannah, the other four sextuplets will not even speak to Jon.

At an event featuring former reality TV stars on Tuesday, Jon told reporters that his children Alexis, Leah, Joel, and Aaden "aren't talking to me, but they're talking to Hannah."

"It's what the kids want to do," he added. "If they don't want to talk to me, that's fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections."

Jon did not mention if his 18-year-old twin daughters were speaking to him, but Mady and Cara have already revealed they're not close to their father anymore.

"He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane," Mady told People in 2016.

"He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen."

Jon also revealed the last time he saw all of his children together, the mood was not friendly.

"It was just volatile and a lot going on," he admitted. "It was just not a good time."

And for the record, no, he’s not speaking to his ex-wife these days either.

"It's just too much right now."

Jon recently won full physical and legal custody of Collin, who was famously dubbed the "missing Gosselin" after disappearing from family photos. At one point, Jon claimed even he did not know where Collin was, although Kate disputes this.

Kate eventually revealed that Collin, who has special needs, was enrolled in a private boarding school, where he would spend most of two full years away from his family.

Jon won custody of Collin in November, after Kate failed to show up to court the day of their hearing.

Once Collin finally leaves the school later this year, Jon says he will live with him full-time.

"It was just easier for the transition," Jon explained. "So it’d be easier for one parent to just transition him home, and he wanted to live with me, so it was easier to do it that way."

"I’m excited to have a male around. I’m surrounded by females," he said, referring to his daughter Hannah and his longtime girlfriend, Colleen Conrad.

Hannah moved in with Jon full time earlier this year, and the proud dad has been sharing plenty of happy photos on social media, including from Hannah’s first day at her new school.

"I admire your bravery starting fresh!" Jon wrote to his daughter in the caption. "I love you very much and we have worked really hard to get here. Dedication has really paid off."

Do you think Jon's kids are being too harsh on him?
