Jon Gosselin and Ellen Ross have split up after nearly two years together.

It's unclear exactly why the ex-husband of Kate Gosselin split with his lady friend, but reports say Ellen's distaste for the media was the final straw.

"Ellen didn't like the media attention and other things that came with the relationship," a source said. "That's one of the main reasons they broke up."

Wait ... we still pay attention to Jon Gosselin? Besides right now? Who knew!

According to an insider, the twosome broke up more than a week ago, but it wasn't until Friday that Jon Gosselin confirmed the breakup on Twitter:

"Recently, after much thought and discussion, Ellen and I have decided to end our relationship. It was a mutual decision and we are both happy."

"We will remain best friends. We both plan to move forward and focus on our separate lives. We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time."

So far, no word from Ellen Ross personally, except a denial earlier this week that was debunked when Jon spilled the beans on Twitter. Whoops.

It's tough being Jon Gosselin. Or the mediocre girl dating Jon Gosselin.

A trip to a Taco Bell turned into a Taco Hell of sorts for the lyin' Hawaiian and Ellen Ross after the Pennsylvania couple was recognized at the drive-thru.

Ross, his girlfriend since the spring, was so pissed at their treatment by the Lemoyne, Pa., restaurant's employees that she lodged an official complaint.

Can't Jon and Ellen grab some chalupas in peace?

She demanded that one of the employees concerned – “the one with the wrap around her head” – be fired. Like we said ... so it goes in the life of Jon.

On October 18, a server tried to gets some Jon Gosselin pictures with a cell phone, causing the increasingly publicity shy pair to become outraged.

They were apparently laughed at, openly mocked, ogled and harassed by the staff. Maybe Ellen Ross will reflect on this in her new advice column ...

Jon Gosselin's girlfriend, Ellen Ross, has a new blog in which readers ask her for advice on everything from wedding politics to breakups to school bullying.

"I am notorious for being able to hold my own and make excellent decisions," Ross writes. "I like to think I have a pretty good head on my shoulders."

On the website, Ellen Ross indirectly references her (in)famous boyfriend, warning readers that "this is not a site to discuss my relationship and critique it."

Ellen Ross gives out the advice, people. Keep your own to yourself!

"Only I know the truth and reality with what's going on in my life so please don't try to send me any emails or comments warning me of what could happen."

Jon and Ellen met in April on a blind date. Can you imagine being set up on a blind date, only to have it be Jon Gosselin? Hey, I know this great unemployed, overweight guy with eight kids and bad hair plugs! You should TOTALLY meet him!

To her credit, the 24-year-old Pennsylvania government worker has been dating Gosselin since this past spring, and has been a stabilizing influence on him.

He recently apologized on Twitter for all his past decisions and seems more focused, relatively speaking at least, on living a quiet life and focusing on his kids.

Ellen Ross is dating Jon Gosselin for some reason.

Because of that lifestyle choice, the 23-year-old has given up her privacy. In exchange, however, she just might have found true love with the father of eight.

Breaking her silence in her first-ever interview, Ellen recently told Pop on the Pop all about her surprisingly normal life with the reality star and much more.

Excerpts from Ellen Ross' Q&A with POTP below ...

On their first date: "It was a backyard barbecue. You get together, sit around, have drinks, talk. That’s just the kind of stuff we do. We’re like a regular couple."

On what she likes about Jon: "He’s funny, he’s very down to earth, he’s very laid back. Obviously, he’s a good father**! He’s fun to be around, always thinks of fun things to do. We actually have a lot in common; I think that’s why we get along so well."

Likin' This

Jon likes what he sees in Ellen Ross ... and/or that sweet phone.

On whether she had Jon get a tattoo of her name: "NO! Those were words taken out of context. The tattoo artist is my friend and has done work on me... I suggested, when Jon wanted to get a tattoo, that he go to my friend. That’s how that came up."

On staying under the radar: "I try to be myself. I don’t try to go anywhere in particular. We just do regular things like regular people do and if there happens to be somebody around that’s a reporter or somebody, they may take a picture on their own."

On public perception of her: "Anybody that says anything to me is supportive and they kind of feel for me for how certain things are perceived on the internet. I have yet to meet someone who strongly dislikes me to my face."

On doing reality TV one day: "I have no interest in doing that... I would NEVER do [a reality show], that is not the direction that I’d ever want my life to go into."

On who Ellen Ross really is: "I’m very down to earth. I like to avoid drama and I have a lot of close friends and I’m close with my family. I just try to go with the flow and take things as they come to me. I’m pretty personable. I’m easy to get along with."

** - Based on what, we have no idea.

As we reported yesterday, Jon Gosselin recently got a new tattoo of a Korean dragon, representing his heritage and to signify a rebirth or some crap like that.

You'd think Jon, who split with wife Kate Gosselin last year, wouldn't want another fire-breathing creature on his back having just rid himself of one, but hey.

"I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or a change in me," Jon says, apparently no longer content with Ed Hardy t-shirts, hair plugs and dual earrings.

What we didn't know yesterday was that the dragon holds a scroll in each claw with the names and birthdates of his eight children, along with a ninth name.

According to translators, it reads "Erin." The letters "L" and "R" are similiar in Korean, so some have interpreted the ninth name as Ellen. As in Ellen Ross.

Gosselin Style

There's still room on the scroll for Hailey Glassman's name ...

Ellen Ross, of course, is his new plaything. Wouldn't it be Elin if that one letter were switched, though? Hey, Tiger Woods' wife is gonna be back on the market...

Anyway, it's a good thing Jon also got himself a new manager and a life coach. Clearly he needs some help with spelling, as well as financial decision-making.

First of all, it's not only cliched to have Asian characters tattooed on yourself in an attempt to act hard, but how do you not make sure they're translated right?

More importantly, the stupid new ink probably costs as much as one or more child support payments, which the broke ass loser has complained about before.

We're just saying.

Remember when Jon Gosselin tried to make sure his eight kids were kept off TV because, supposedly, he thought it was detrimental to their health?

Yeah, that didn't take. Largely because the only reason he did that was that TLC wanted to keep him off TV. He'd love to get back on screen, too.

"It would be nice to have a job on television again," he told Us Weekly. "I'm not so sure about reality. I'm just exploring my options right now."

"I've been meeting with certain people about different ideas. I can’t talk about it; you have to stay tuned." Oh, you better believe that we will.

As for rumors that Kate Gosselin may be getting a dating show?

"I saw some stuff on the Internet about The Bachelorette, and I saw stuff about our own dating show, but our spokesperson says it’s not true," he said.

"At this point, I don’t really mix in her business. We talk about: 'Hey, I'm going to pick up the kids at 2. Is there gas in the van? That kind of thing."

Big Pimp in Action

Ellen Ross is Jon's latest girlfriend - and it's going well.

As for his own love life, Jon Gosselin said he couldn't be happier with his Ellen Ross, 23, whom he met on a blind date and got along with right away.

"We just kind of hit it off, backyard barbeques in Pennsylvania, hanging out, good times. She knew of me [and still] saw me as a normal person."

The relationship is "really different for me," he added, noting that despite reports that she hates kids, she makes every effort to bond with his brood.

"You have to find ways to occupy time, especially if it rains!" he said. "I was like, 'What are we going to do?' So she got Monopoly, board games."

Well played, Ellen Ross. Well played. On multiple levels.

He says he's taking their romance "day by day. I have a hard time talking about my personal life because of everything that happened last year."

"I just stray away from it. We just want to be left alone."

Just give him a new TV show, though. Please! Anyone?

Ellen Ross, Jon Gosselin's newest girlfriend, supposedly hates kids. Nice. Way to date an overweight, unemployed guy who fathered eight of them then!

Guess that's the price you pay, though. Despite the fact that Ellen Ross "hates" children, a source tells Us that the 23-year-old "she wants to be famous."

This would be the primary appeal of dating Jon Gosselin, although even that's diminishing quickly. After the fourth or fifth girl it becomes less shocking.

In any case, she sounds like great stepmother material.

Ellen Ross sounds like great stepmother material.

When Ross was seen palling around with Gosselin's eight children on a playground May 22, another insider reports that it was simply a staged photo op.

"She knew it would get her attention," says the source.

Whoa. You mean guys with that kind of baggage aren't appealing unless celebrity gossip magazines and websites pay attention to you for dating them?

One person not pleased with Ross' photo stunt: Jon's ex Kate Gosselin, who is "freaking out" over it. That and everything else. But she's not pleased!

Things must be getting serious between Jon Gosselin and Ellen Ross, his newest play thing girlfriend ... or at least they're reaching the Jon equivalent of serious.

After all, Radar Online reports the reality TV father introduced Ellen to six of his kids Friday. No word if Mady and Cara boycotted by choice or just had other plans.

Ellen Ross and Jon Gosselin were spotted picking up his sextuplets from the school bus in Reading, Pa., and according to reports, the kids weren’t too fazed at all.

Eh, that's not too surprising. They've already read about Jon and Deanna Hummel. And Hailey Glassman, and Stephanie Santoro. And Morgan Christie, and ...

Speaking of Hailey, Ellen kinda looks like her, no? Peep it:

ELLEN ROSS: So Jon Gosselin's type ... desperate, likely disturbed.

In fact, the six kids were supposedly happy to be meeting daddy’s “new friend” - they were all smiles and laughs and obviously happy to be seeing their father.

Hey, it's not something you can take for granted with this dude.

Jon has been adjusting to his life as a single dad, showing the kids around his new apartment, looking for a job and even introducing the brood to his new girl.

He even went out of his way to see them on their birthday.

Granted any father should do that, and he wanted credit and sort of threw Kate under the bus afterward, but still. Progress, people. Even baby steps are good.

Looks like Jon Gosselin has a new girlfriend.

Ellen Ross is not, however, the rich cougar Jon was reportedly seeking. Rather, she's in his typical age range (23), and hails from nearby Harrisburg, Pa.

Basically, Ellen is the new Morgan Christie, who was the new Hailey Glassman, who was the new Deanna Hummel. Give it up for Jon's new plaything!

The two have even begun calling each other "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" with Jon even proclaiming his love for her online. We hope you didn't just eat.

Their recent Facebook nausea-fest conversation all began when Ellen Ross recently posted "I without a doubt have THE best boyfriend ever. Fyi"

She must not have a lot of experience dating.

He Likes 'Em This Big

COME TO DADDY: Jon Gosselin's got a new love in Ellen Ross!

Jonny G added: "Thank you babe, you are the best too. <3 u! I think boys should be boyfriends and men should be manfriends. Just saying! ;-)"

Right, Jon. You definitely quality there.

He continues: "I guess it would sound better in french 'J'ai sans aucun doute le meilleur ami jamais. ami=boyfriend' ... Ellen, Amie pendant la vie. N'oubliez pas je t'aime ... Girlfriend for life. Don't forget I love you!"

That sound you hear is of hands slapping foreheads everywhere.

Perhaps the funniest part? Right after Jon's passionate declaration, a friend of Ellen's adds, "Still can't believe you're dating men again ... wild"

That misguided pal must be mistaken ... Ellen's dating Jon Gosselin.

Lest we forget, the dude's got a two-inch package. This has been established. Whatever works for you crazy kids, though. Congratulations, Stubby!

NOTE: Befriend THG on Facebook and we promise, no gross lovey-dovey stuff. Well, unless you're a rich cougar ... exceptions may be made then.
