Claiming he's been abused and beaten by estranged wife Kate, Jon says their relationship "will never be fixed."
Opening up about his tumultuous marriage to estranged wife Kate Gosselin, Jon Gosselin tells Chris Cuomo of ABC News in an interview to be aired Tuesday, September 8, "Our relationship will never be fixed." On the reason why, he mentions, "I don't trust her anymore. I was abused ... I was beaten down ... I'm not going back to that life style."
Providing one evidence on how he was abused by Kate when they were still together, Jon says, "In 10 years, I've never gone out ... I used to say, 'OK, I'm not going to go out.' I was very passive." However, at one point "... I said, 'You know what? I want to see my friends. I'm going out'. That was the first time in my life I ever stood up to Kate ... I just felt like I had to take back some time in my life, and I did it. And I felt really good. I made my own decision."
"I was beaten down for so long, I couldn't even make my own decision. And when I did, I was like, holy cow! You know? Yeah, what's she gonna do? Divorce me? All right. Obviously," Jon tells Chris. In further interview, the father of eight children reveals that he regrets having to end his marriage to Kate. "I don't cry, I cried at my dad's funeral. That's it. But like, I've cried more now in the last, like, eight months than ... my whole entire life," he claims.
Asked about how his family reacts to his and Kate's divorce, Jon says "My mom and my brothers, they say to me, 'It's so good to have the real Jon back. It's so good to have the warm, loving, kind, caring person that we knew you when you were ... before you got married'." At last Jon concludes, "I've changed for her. Because I loved her ... But don't forget who you are. That's what happened to me."
Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin have been married for nearly 10 years when they decided to call off their union. Their separation managed to send tongue wagging as it occurred when they were on top of fame with the hit reality TV show "Jon & Kate Plus 8".
