Kate Plus 8: Father Jon Gosselin Had to Send Collin Back

Collin Gosellin was happy with his dad and Hannah, which is what Jon’s friend and the family barber said after cutting Collins hair. While Collin stayed with Jon Gosellin and Hannah he came into Eric’s shop for a haircut. The young former cast member of Kate Plus 8.

It sounds like Collin wasn’t too happy to go back to the facility he was placed in by his mom, Kate Gosselin. He told the barber, whose name is Eric Rodriguez, that he can’t wait for Thanksgiving because he can come back home, according to Pop Culture.

Apparently, Collin Gosellin considers his dad’s house his home. As Soap Dirt reported several days ago, Jon Gosselin has filed for custody of the boy. Unless this custody is granted, Jon has no say over where Collin will go.

Jon Gosellin did the same thing with Hannah. He won full custody of the 14-year-old, one of the sextuplets along with Collin. About a month later Kate Gosselin filed for a reconsideration but was turned down.

Now it’s Collin’s turn as dad goes to bat for him by filing for custody of the boy. Eric Rodriguez said that Collin was “bummed about going back” to the treatment facility. If the court decides in Jon’s favor and Collin does come to live with his dad, that means he will a attend a regular school.

The barber asked Collin if he was excited about going to a regular school. Rodrigue said, “He just said he didn’t like his other school that he was in before that facility, the one that Kate had him in.”

Kate Gosselin put Collin Gosselin in Facility For Special Needs

Kate did reveal Collin Gosellin is away in a facility because he has special needs. She said:

“[There’s] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we’ve had for a very long time, and it’s one I’ve dealt with on my own. I’ve felt very alone in this. By the same token, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him — our entire family has been impacted.”

That is when she said that Collin Gosellin is in a program. She said the program, he will learn “to be the best he can be.”

The Kate Plus 8 headliner got her start in reality alongside her husband, Jon Gosellin. This was back when Kate gave birth to the sextuplets. TLC shortened the original show Jon and Kate Plus 8 to just Kate Plus 8 when the couple parted. Along with the sextuplets, who are now 14, they have 18-year-old twins. Which is where Kate’s plus eight comes in.

Jon, Hannah, and Collin – A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words

During the time Collin spent with Jon and Hannah, Jon posted many photos of his son and Hannah together online. In each photo, these two sextuplets had a grin from ear to ear. They were a picture of happiness, as was papa Jon Gosselin, who was also in some of the photos.

Fans jumped online to support Collin and his wish to go live with his dad. Many fans found it hard to see the lad having to go back to the facility. Especially after Jon Gosellin filed for “full legal and physical custody” of Jon’s son. His dad wants him home with him and Hannah.

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
