Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin has been advised by his new spiritual consultant, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, to dump girlfriend Hailey Glassman. In interview with The Insider last week, Glassman said she has been “emotionally abused” by Jon Gosselin and sick of being the victim of his “mantrums”.
Reality TV dad Jon Gosselin told UsMagazine.com last week he was “carried away by the challenges of fame” and wants to “reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self.” As part of his spiritual revamp, Gosselin – who is half Jewish – has been consulting with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. As part of his spiritual counseling, Gosselin agreed to speak at a forum at New York’s West Side Synagogue on Sunday. “I wish for the public to know my regret at having, at times, betrayed the moral principles that have always guided me,” Gosselin said.
In addition to study sessions and counseling, Rabbi Boteach also wants Jon Gosselin to break up with girlfriend Hailey Glassman. “I have advised him to end it with Hailey,” Shmuley told the New York Post. “It is unacceptable to be in a relationship with he is still married and has to take care of kids who are hurting. It is not a healthy relationship.”Â Rumor has it Gosselin may use the forum to publicly acknowledge his split from Glassman.
As for Hailey Glassman, she took to her Twitter feed to thank those who have supported her decision to speak bluntly about her relationship with Jon Gosselin on The Insider. “I just want to thank everyone for their support,â€ Glassman Tweeted. â€œI was brutally honest and put everything out on the table infront [sic] of the entire world.”
