It didn’t seem like something that would ever happen with Kate Gosselin — her ex-husband Jon Gosselin offering a heartfelt apology to her for the ways he treated her after their split. The single dad accused his ex-wife for being an irresponsible mom and chasing fame.
“I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn’t want done to me,” he told People magazine.
The comment was referred to his conduct dating several women when his divorce with Kate was most bitter. When she joined Dancing with the Stars, he insulted her priorities in the media.
Jon notes that his parenting styles are different from those of Kate’s, but they get along well now that they’re living separate lives.
“I’ll call [Kate] up and say, ‘Mady’s sick. What do I do?’ And she’ll tell me,” he said. “She’s a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles.”
Kate Gosselin is benefitting from visits Jon paid Rabbi Shmuley Boteach — Michael Jackson’s rabbi. He told Jon he can either “sell out” his fame “or take it and use it for something good.”
Jon Gosselin said he didn’t realize that years ago and wants everyone to know he’s changed for the better. He even takes the blame for the break down of their marriage.
