Just a few months back when we checked in with Jon Gosselin, he was working as a waiter and living in a cabin in rural Pennsylvania. But when the reality bug bites, it bites you bad and the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star has just begun a new gig on VH1’s Couples Therapy. While promoting his stint on the show this week, he revealed some pretty major info: He had a vasectomy.
Yep, the father of eight is dunzo with having kids — which is probably for the best considering the trouble he’s had with keeping up with child support payments. So don’t expect him to have any children with his girlfriend, Liz Jannetta (who appears with him on Couples Therapy).
"No. We can't have more kids. Yeah, I'm fixed," Jon told Wendy Williams on her show this week.
As for those children that Jon does have — twins Mady and Cara and the sextuplets — he assures the public that they are totally set financially.
"My kids go to private school. They also have trusts. They have education trusts. They have other trusts. Kate and I put 80 percent of the gross of the income in a trust for three years for them. They're fine."
Another bomb dropped? Jon and his former wife, Kate, no longer speak — though they do share custody of their children. "We just text, we don't talk to each other. I only know what she says about me by the media."
Jon always said he’d never allow his children back on a reality show, but after his return to TV this year, he’s reconsidering. "I always said I would never film with my kids but I didn't say I would never film again. It's different I guess, being well known, that's what I say, I don't say famous." Jon continued: "I think I'm a normal person. Ordinary! Not normal."
What do you think of Jon’s revelation? Sound off in the comments below.
