Collin Gosselin accuses mom Kate of taking divorce ‘anger and frustration’ out on him

Collin Gosselin is reflecting negatively on his time spent living under Kate Gosselin’s roof. In a preview of the Friday release of Vice TV’s documentary “Dark Side of the 2000s,” the 19-year-old said that his mother had taken “out her anger and frustration” about her divorce from Jon Gosselin in 2009.

I am aware that my mother was going through a lot. At the end of the day, a separation and a lot of various things that can’t be not difficult to go through,” Collin said in the clasp. He asserted, “And, you know, I want to think that she needed someone to take out her anger and frustration on, and that it was just kind of me.” I is standing out and I was there. Thus, she selected me.

In addition, Collin acknowledged that despite the fact that he was not a “perfect child,” he believes that his “misbehavior was no different than” that of his siblings: Madelyn and Cara, twins who are 22 years old, and other sextuplets Leah, Hannah, Alexis, Aaden, and Joel. Hannah likewise addressed the source for the narrative, which comes out July 18.

She claimed that “[Collin] would be separated from us.” He wouldn’t get to play outside with us, for example. He and we would have dinner at different times. She added, referring to her brother, who spent years in a mental health facility, that “I don’t think effort was made in the home to help him learn what behavior is acceptable and what behavior is not acceptable.”

Since moving in with his father, 46, in 2018, Collin has talked about how he has no relationship with his mother, who is 48 years old. In November 2022, the teen revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” that, despite the fact that he is estranged from the “Kate Plus Date” alum, he is “doing very well” without her in his life and will not “sit around and mourn and cry about” the situation.

He stated, “If she doesn’t want to show up, she doesn’t have to,” indicating that the reality star’s absence from his custody hearing in 2018 did not “bother” him. While Kate stood out as truly newsworthy for going to his and Hannah’s graduation last month, she supposedly scorned Collin and didn’t address him. In a June Instagram post, he reciprocated by praising Jon’s ex-wife Colleen Conrad and omitting Kate.
