Jon Gosselin is fuming in a brand new interview about his ex-wife and her actuality TV aspirations — and it positive looks as if he’s received each proper to be mad as hell!

Jon was clearly emotional in the course of the sit-down with the information outlet, saying proper out on the open (under):
“I’m furious. Absolutely furious. They didn’t care. It’s really upsetting that big business and big corporations go do whatever they want, against a parent’s legal right. The judge and the guardian ad litem both agreed that it wasn’t in my children’s best interests to be filmed, but my ex wife and TLC had other ideas. They put profits and ratings ahead of the well being of my children and filmed illegally without work permits.”
Wow! Speak about anger — and in keeping with the court docket docs, the daddy seems to be heading in the right direction together with his fiery opinions.
DailyMailTV unearthed court docket docs together with the interview and found that in 2018, the Division of Labor really did deny filming permits to TLC and the present’s manufacturing crew, whereas a decide concurrently dominated “it is not in the best interests” of the Gosselin kids to maintain permitting them to be filmed for actuality TV. Wow!!!
So what occurred?!
It seems community execs went forward with filming anyhow, getting footage of the household at their Pennsylvania dwelling and on location in North Carolina, apparently overtly defying the court docket order.
4 of the couple’s minor kids — 15-year-olds Alexis, Aaden, Joel, and Leah — all appeared on digicam. (FWIW, the opposite 15-year-olds, Hannah and Collin, each stay with Jon full time now; in the meantime, twins Mady and Cara had been each 19 on the time, and thus adults who could make their very own selections about filming.)
Per the court docket docs, the choice took place when Kate and TLC lodged eight purposes for “a Minor in a Performance” permits again in 2018. The Pennsylvania Bureau of Labor Legislation Compliance accomplished a assessment of the purposes, and determined NOT to supply any leisure permits for any of the Gosselin kids, although, stating of their resolution:
“There are serious questions about whether Kate Gosselin has the legal authority to agree to have her children filmed as part of this reality television program.”
No kidding!! As we’ve beforehand reported, Jon and Kate have held joint authorized custody of their minor kids since at the least late 2016 — and Kate would’ve wanted Jon to log off on any filming license requests for the youngsters. (Spoiler alert: he didn’t log off.)

Then, when Kate and TLC went to court docket to attraction the choice, issues received worse for the mother and her TV exec biz companions. Pennsylvania Superior Courtroom Choose Timothy J. Rowley slammed the mother of eight and the TV community in his order affirming the unique labor regulation resolution, stating in his opinion:
“Based on the limited information available – and in large part because of Mother’s and her counsel’s repeated failure to provide further information to Father, the guardian ad litem, and the Court – the Court concluded that involvement of the children in filming is not in their best interests.”
Appears fairly definitive to us…
However Choose Rowley didn’t cease there, additional making it VERY clear Kate’s lack of know-how supplied to the courts in regards to the kids’s psychological well-being associated to filming was his main concern (under):
“Although a number of of the youngsters point out they take pleasure in filming, one doesn’t and is experiencing physiological signs apparently introduced on by the final stress of the custodial disputes, and one other is in a facility present process remedy for psychological and emotional points tied partly to the filming and fame. It’s affordable to be involved that a number of of the youngsters who at the moment declare to take pleasure in filming could sooner or later endure adverse penalties they can’t foresee now as younger youngsters. Because the guardian factors out, even these kids who don’t take part within the filming could also be negatively affected by the present persevering with with out them. Certainly, the statements of a number of of the youngsters to the impact that they want filming to outlive, that it’s their regular lifestyle, and that it feels bizarre to not movie, though apparently meant to make filming appear innocuous or optimistic, increase considerations within the Courtroom’s thoughts as as to whether continued filming is wholesome for these kids.”
They want filming to outlive?? Oh, that’s tousled…
And an announcement like this — from a decide — ought to firmly have saved the youngsters off digicam and away from any actuality TV manufacturing of any form for the remainder of their underage years, proper?! …Proper??
In keeping with Jon, who now lives in Studying, Pennsylvania and works full-time as an IT supervisor, the court docket order allegedly did nothing to faze Kate and TLC (under):
“TLC were completely aware of the court order but filmed anyway. They filmed in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Now I’m even more upset because Kate plus Eight has aired against my permission, Kate filmed my kids without written consent from me … It’s just disheartening that I have to read about it. First of all, it’s called Kate Plus 8 which is absurd. There’s not eight children there. Two kids live with me, Hannah and Collin, they’ve lived with me for over a year. At the end of the show Kate said that kids keep leaving – kids don’t keep leaving, you threw one out. Institutionalized one. So he didn’t leave on free will, Collin was kicked out of your house, thrown into an institution, mentally abused by you and the institution, so he didn’t leave. Let’s just put that on there. My daughter Hannah, she did leave and she chose to live with me.”
Unreal. Kate’s home nearly feels like a cult or one thing, doesn’t it? And the way is TLC simply going together with this, overtly defying court docket orders and all?!?!
(BTW, the psychological establishment state of affairs that Jon references there’s one hell of a jaw-dropping story by itself. This household, man…)
Anyhow, at one level, Jon even requested Kate to provide him and the court docket a filming schedule — places, cost particulars, hours filmed, you realize, easy stuff — however in keeping with the livid father, his ex-wife wasn’t even capable of present that. Jon defined (under):
“You just wanted my signature for something that I didn’t know anything about to film my kids. And I said no. It’s not just me that is concerned. It’s me, Berks County Courthouse, Superior Court, and the guardian ad litem. Everyone agrees it’s not in the best interest of the kids to film, they’ve actually taken testimony from them that it is not in their best interests. Kate had to prove, within a reasonable doubt, that it was beneficial to the children, other than financially, to film them and she couldn’t prove anything.”
We’re with you on this one, man! There’s only one drawback…
As Jon himself is fast to level out, the fines concerned with breaking the court docket orders listed here are sufficiently small the community is seemingly cool with paying them as if they’re one other price of manufacturing. And the cash rolling in is just too vital to Kate’s apparently-lavish private life-style for her to hunt a change, both.
Jon defined (under):
“They literally don’t care. They’ll pay the fine. So that’s what I tell people … that big business will do whatever they want to do because they have the money to pay all the fines. This is all about money. This is a fiduciary thing. This has nothing to do with anything else other than Kate’s lifestyle, not the kids’ lifestyle. Go get a job. Support your own family. It’s disgusting. My kids work for her lifestyle. Kate does nothing. Zero. Absolutely nothing.”

In the end, Jon feels like he simply desires a standard life for his kids — or, as regular as could be, contemplating all that’s occurred already — as he informed the outlet (under):
“There is no reason my kids need to be on television anymore, it doesn’t benefit them in any way. It is very confusing for them. I love all my kids. I want them to grow up to have a normal life. I know Mady and Cara are in college doing what they want to do, but my young kids are in ninth grade. I just want them to experience high school, kind of like I experienced high school – just as normal as possible.”
Amen to that.
