Despite all the drinking, partying, making out with Hailey Glassman and bashing of Kate Gosselin on national TV, Jon Gosselin wants to end it all.
Or so claims Radar Online, quoting the mother of Stephanie Santoro, his former babysitter / play thing, who claims Jon threatened to kill himself.
Jon's rep shot this down in approximately a nanosecond, telling E! News:
"It's sad that a grown woman and mother has time to go give an interview about a conversation she overheard. Jon is happy and enjoying his life."
"He's strong and getting by day by day, and he would never leave his kids."
"Jon's very happy and has a lot of great projects in the works. He has never tried to kill himself, and he definitely doesn't want to kill himself."
Why would Jon Gosselin kill himself? His life just began this summer!
Team Jon's theory about how the third-hand suicide rumors were sparked rests on his firing of Stephanie Santoro, who was linked romantically to the nation's most eligible bachelor and who caused a huge fight between Jon and Kate.
"He did have to get rid of the babysitter because Kate was upset about it. Jon denies sleeping with her," says a source. "It was causing too many problems at home, so he replaced her. So maybe that's why the mother is bitter."
We're glad he's alive, well and focused on the Jon Gosselin clothing line. The apparel will be marketed specifically to America's growing douchebag demographic.
