Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin appeared in court on December 4 for a hearing regarding the custody of his 14-year-old son, Collin. Kate Gosselin, Jon’s ex-wife, was supposed to attend the court appearance, but she and her lawyer did not show up, granting Jon sole custody.
“Jon won sole physical and sole legal custody of Collin,” a source shared with Us Weekly. “All other matters were moved to a future court date.” The reason for Kate’s absence has yet to be released, but allegedly she had asked for the court date to be postponed in advance, but her request was not granted.
Jon and Kate split back in 2009 after a decade of marriage and eight children in tow. Kate was given full custody of 14-year-old sextuplets Collin, Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden and 18-year-old twins Cara and Mady, but both spouses shared physical custody at the time.
Last month it was confirmed that Jon filed for full legal and physical custody of son, Collin, who was seeking treatment for behavioral issues the past two years. A source shared that Collin’s current treatment is going very well so far. “Collin is very intelligent. He was always questioning Kate and talking back. Kate doesn’t like that,” the source revealed. “They work closely with Jon and really do care about Collin.” Collin will soon be gearing up for release from the treatment facility, and by the looks of it, he’ll be heading straight to his father’s house!
