There’s drama in the Gosselin camp! After Kate posted a picture of 5 of the 6 sextuplets on Halloween, with Collin notably absent, Jon Gosselin is said to be upset over the exclusion of his son. Unnamed sources close to the former reality star say Jon Gosselin is heartbroken about Collin missing family activities. Collin has been away at a facility, reportedly to help him deal with undisclosed special needs.

Sources told Hollywood Life that Jon Gosselin is heartbroken about Collin being left out, and still being “away.”

The picture Kate posted included 5 of the 6 sextuplets. Missing were twins Cara and Mady, and Collin. Collin has been away at an unnamed facility since last year. Kate has said he’s getting help for his special needs and develop strategies to help him cope. He’s been absent from her new show, and absent from her social media accounts. However, she has addressed him being gone in interviews.

But sources say Jon Gosselin is heartbroken about Collin, and the way Kate has handled the situation.

A source close to Jon told Hollywood Life that “The way Kate is handling things with Collin breaks Jon’s heart but he has no say. She controls everything, it’s her way or the highway when it comes to the kids, including Collin. When he saw that Kate left Collin out of Halloween, that his son was missing yet another family celebration Jon broke down and cried. He hates that she’s doing this to Collin and feels so helpless to stop her.”

Happy New Year!!! 2017!!! Let's do this!!!!

Jon is reportedly doing well in his own life, and is hoping the judge sees things a little differently at their next custody hearing. Kate currently has primary legal and physical custody of their 8 kids together. But Jon is hoping that his new job and stability will turn the tables in his favor, and that he’ll be granted more time with them. Whatever happens, we hope Jon and Kate can finally start to co-parent as a cohesive unit, for the sake of their children.
