Jon Gosselin Claims He Has To 'Reparent' His Kids After Kate 'Abused' Them

When it comes to the Gosselin family, it's no secret that tensions have been building for many years between estranged parents Kate and Jon Gosselin.

Since the 10 year gag order has been lifted off Jon earlier this year, the father of eight has been breaking his silence about his ex-wife's parenting.

"It's time America found out the truth about Kate, she isn't the person you think she is," he told Daily Mail TV.

"She's narcissistic and selfish. That's it. Period. All of this is for her - Kate Plus Eight, Kate Plus Date, it's her name first."

Now, in a new interview on "The Dr. Oz Show" Jon accuses Kate of having "personality disorders" as well as mentally abusing their children.

"Fame's different only because fame … things are given to you. You're held to a higher standard. You're put on a pedestal … the attention, it’s almost like a drug," he told Dr. Oz.

"Like an addiction. And once you have that, and that lifestyle, you can see certain tendencies in people. It just … it feeds and feeds and feeds."

After previously claiming that Kate "caged" Collin in a special needs facility for three years Jon remakred, "I have to reparent my kids."

"A lot of stuff happened, abuse wise, mental, physical. Even though they are 15, they might [behave like they're] 12. The mental abuse, the alienation, just the put-downs … Isolation is a huge one," he continued.

"I make them join clubs and go to dances and football games. ... We all go to … therapy."

In regards to his relationship with Kate: "We don't have a relationship right now. We don't talk, nothing. The only time I see my ex-wife is in court."

He concluded, "It's just never going to happen due to personality disorders and everything else. We just have different aspects of how we want to parent. In two more years, we are going to have a lot of adults."
