In interviews with Good Morning America and Primetime airing this week, Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin wants the world to know he’s a real person, with real feelings. Those feelings apparently include being seriously pissed off at soon-to-be-ex wife Kate Gosselin.
“Our relationship will never be fixed,” Jon Gosselin tells ABC News’ Chris Cuomo in his Tuesday interview on Good Morning America. “I don’t trust her anymore. I was abused,” Gosselin says. “I was beaten down …I’m not going back to that life style.”
While Kate Gosselin has blamed the breakdown of her marriage on Jon in the public media, he says the end of their marriage was Kate’s decision. “She made the first move. She knows the truth,” Jon Gosselin says on GMA. “I wish to God, she would speak from emotions … She’s not speaking from the heart. Please, the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”
“I was beaten down for so long, I couldn’t even make my own decision,” Jon Gosselin says. “And when I did, I was like, holy cow! You know? Yeah, what’s she gonna do? Divorce me? All right. Obviously. You know.” The Jon & Kate Plus 8 star even claims he tried to get Kate to go to marriage counseling, but she refused to go with him.
Watch Jon Gosselin’s interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Sept. 8, and more on Primetime: Family Secrets at 10 p.m. ET.
