Just a few weeks after splitting from his wife of 10 years, Jon Gosselin is back in the spotlight with a new career and a new girlfriend, Hailey Glassman.
Hailey, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate Gosselin’s tummy tuck in 2006, accompanied Jon to the French Riviera over the weekend.
The reason for the trip? So Jon Gosselin could finalize a deal to design his own clothing line for kids (really) with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier.
The best part? Party girl Hailey Glassman, whose mug shot was leaked online earlier today, will also have a hand in creating the kid-friendly fashions.
“She’ll have a lot of input with Christian,” Jon Gosselin told People when asked about Hailey’s involvement in their new fashion foray. “And I will, too.”
Jon also said that his eight kids, who spent the weekend with Kate Gosselin at the family’s Pennsylvania home, will model his designs in ads for the line.
Nice to see that the tabloid frenzy, contentious separation and the hiatus of Jon and Kate Plus 8 haven't stopped them from pimping out their offspring.
Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman take in the St. Tropez scene.
Christian Audigier says he approached Gosselin with the idea after noticing that the TV dad often wore his tattoo-inspired T-shirts on Jon and Kate Plus 8.
“He’s huge,” says the French designer, “Everyone knows this family. And now everyone will know our clothes. They’ll be fun, easy clothes for kids.”
During the weekend aboard Audigier’s yacht, Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman lunched at the Tahiti Club before cruising around the bay in a boat.
The hot couple went shopping at some high-end boutiques around St. Tropez, including Hermes and Prada. “They couldn’t take their eyes off each other,” a friend of Audigier’s says of Jon and Hailey. “They looked so happy to just be together.”
According to E!, Jon later ditched jet-lagged Hailey at the hotel to party.
Jon partied with Audigier at the glitzy nightclub Les Caves du Roy, where he drank champagne and danced until 5 a.m.: "Their bill there could have been as much as $50,000," says a club source. "They looked like they were having a lot of fun."
After sleeping in Sunday, the couple did some shopping in St.-Tropez port. That night, Jon Gosselin left Hailey Glassman at the hotel again and went to a late, boozy dinner with Audigier at a friend's private villa.
"He looked drunk," says a source who saw Gosselin arrive.
