Jon Gosselin is finally speaking out his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, and how he feels she’s treated their eight kids. The 42-year-old slammed Kate in a new interview, now that a decade-long gag order has finally lifted.

Jon claimed in the interview that Kate, 44, was “militant” with the children. “It’s time America found out the truth about Kate, she isn’t the person you think she is,” he said of his ex, who now has another show, Kate Plus Date

Many of Jon’s most intense claims centered around their 15-year-old son Collin. Jon confessed that he was heartbroken to learn that Kate had sent their son to a behavioral camp in Philadelphia behind his back. Collin was there for three years.

At the time, Jon had no legal rights to change the situation. He ordered his lawyers to fight for joint custody. The DJ now has full custody of both Collin and daughter Hannah. The other sextuplets — Aaden, Joel, Alexis, and Leah — still live with Kate, while 18-year-old twins Mady and Cara went off to college
