(NEW YORK) — Jon Gosselin says he’s partly to blame for the way his marriage to Kate Gosselin ended.
The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 couple went through a bitter divorce that was finalized in 2009. Reflecting on that experience in an interview with People magazine, Gosselin said he was “passive-aggressive,” adding, “Then I’d get mad, but I was the one who wasn’t communicating.”
Gosselin said the lines of communication between he and his ex-wife are open again. He called her a “great mom” who simply has a different parenting style than he does.
The 35-year-old dad also regrets that the mother of his kids had to watch him date several women after their divorce. He said, “I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn’t want done to me.” He’s now dating a 27-year-old single mom.
Will we ever see Gosselin on TV again? Probably not in the near future. He said, “I’ve been offered a lot of stuff. Crazy stuff. It wasn’t the right fit, then or now. I don’t want [my kids] thinking I take every show just to make a buck.”
