“My son Collin, whom I love with all my heart, has received multiple psychiatric diagnoses over the years. For my safety, that of his brothers and sisters, and for his own well-being, he was admitted to a center after years of outpatient treatment that proved insufficient for his needs. The decision to admit him was made by the ER doctors following one of his many seizures/outbursts, this one related to the use of a weapon,” he continued.
“Fast forward to today, and following Jon (Gosselin) by Colin from treatment, unfortunately my son’s unpredictable and violent behaviors have continued regularly towards Jon, Hannah and others around him,” Kate, 48, alleged.
“Collin’s distorted perception of reality is one of the many issues he’s always struggled with,” the former reality star alleged, writing, “it’s sadly astonishing when complete fabrications occur, and it’s just another heartbreaking facet of this struggle.”
“Unfortunately, I think Collin is still a very troubled young man who still needs a lot of help. His brothers and sisters and I have not been directly involved in his life due to his history of unpredictable behavior and violent tendencies towards us. that his sister maddy (Gosselin) posted to social media recently is completely accurate and I deeply appreciate their courage in doing so,” Kate added.

In response to Kate’s statement, a rep for Jon tells her exclusively In contact, “Kate posting cruel false accusations regarding Collin seems to be just another way of justifying her past unforgivable and horrible behavior towards him. True love for a child would not include a mother attacking her child in public.”

The full government diagnosis clearly reflects the truth,” the statement continued. “Don’t forget that a judge awarded sole legal and physical custody of Collin to his father. Kate didn’t even show up for court and lost full custody of her own child.”
The statement concluded: “Regarding these new false accusations, it seems clear that even today, after not seeing her son since the sixth grade, she cannot control her abusive words towards him. At this point, Collin is training to be a Marine to serve his country and can’t answer his mother’s cruel lies.”
