Once a successful reality TV star, Jon Gosselin's fame and fortune have gone the way of his marriage, leaving him unable to even pay the bills.
So says Jon himself, allegedly, to Star Magazine.
"I can't afford to pay rent and the domestic-relations staff say they will put me in jail unless I pay child support,” Jon, 35, is quoted as saying.
“I am a single father who’s trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do - pay child support or rent? Obviously I need to support my kids. I could lose my house, though, and need my home to continue to have custody."
"I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I'm could end up in jail because I can't afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money," the former star complained, laughably, as if TLC didn't fire him.
“I’m doing the best I can, but life is expensive with eight kids!"
Hey, the Octomom porn is putting food on her kids' table. Maybe Jon should grow a pair and show it in his own adult film? Okay, maybe not.
In any event, holding down a job and making ends meet has been a difficult task for Jon, even if he and Kate Gosselin are on better terms.
Speaking of which, Jon doesn't support her new career path.
"I think this is completely ridiculous! We have eight children and they need us, and she is putting reality TV and dating in front of the kids," he says.
Jon, who is now dating Liz Jannetta, adds that, "I know I have a lot to be thankful for, but Kate's need to be famous is not one of them."
