In the interview, the former 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' star says that he goes bankrupt due to the divorce, while TLC helps Kate pay 'attorneys in the lawsuit and for her divorce.'

AceShowbiz - Jon Gosselin has stopped by "Dr. Oz", and he uses that to blast his ex-wife Kate Gosselin. During the episode, which is set to air on Monday, November 18, the 42-year-old is not holding back when the former "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star opens up about his divorce process from the reality TV star.

In the first-look video for the upcoming episode that is obtained by PEOPLE, he says that he goes bankrupt due to the divorce, while TLC helps Kate financially. "I literally hung a sign on my gate saying, 'If any crew members show up, I'll have you arrested for trespassing,' " he tells Dr. Oz. "They sued me for breach of contract and I pretty much bankrupted myself."

"I've spent $1.7 million in lawyers fees from when TLC sued me and the divorce," he continues, before adding that "TLC paid for [Kate's] attorneys in the lawsuit and for her divorce."

When asked if he thinks that Kate is an "unfit mother" for their 8 kids, Jon responds by alluding that the problem lies on her "skewed" belief system. "I believe her intentions, in the beginning, were good intentions, bringing kids into the world," he says. "She fought to have these kids. But I think once fame and money got involved, it twisted her belief system. On my end, I've been fighting to get my kids off TV forever."

At one point, the host asks Jon whether it is possible for his marriage to remain intact "if it wasn't for the cameras?" to which Jon replies, "You know, a lot of people ask me that, and it's hard to live in a hypothetical. But I think eventually, because of personality, it would have fizzled out anyway, because we, first of all, I got married at 22-years-old, you just don't know."

Of the personality issue he mentions, Jon claims, "Well, I think it's both of us, but I think she has a narcissistic personality disorder. I think she tends to think more on her level selfishly instead for others. I think I tend to think sometimes more for others than for myself, so I tend to not worry what's going on with me when I should sometimes."

Kate and Jon were married for ten years before announcing their divorce in June 2009. The exes have 18-year-old twin daughters Mady and Cara, who are in college, as well as 15-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Collin, Alexis, Aaden, Joel and Leah. Collin and Hannah are currently living with Jon, while the others are living with Kate.
