Jon Gosselin Apologizes To Ex Kate Gosselin: “I Am Sorry”

Jon Gosselin signs autographs for $10 in Frederick, Maryland

Three years after making headlines when he split from then wife and mother of his 11-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 8-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, Jon Gosselin claims that he and his ex-wife Kate Gosselin are at a good point in their rocky relationship– and he’s sorry for the way he behaved post-split.

“I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn’t want done to me,” he tells PEOPLE, referring to the steady stream of women he dated after their split.

“I was passive-aggressive,” he recalls of their marriage. “Then I’d get mad, but I was the one who wasn’t communicating.”

But now, he says, times have changed, especially when it comes to the kids.

“I’ll call [Kate] up and say, ‘Mady’s sick. What do I do?’ And she’ll tell me,” he says. “She’s a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles.”

“I used to talk to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (Michael Jackson‘s rabbi) a lot when I lived in New York,” Jon – who moved back to Berks County, Pennsylvania in 2011 after two years of bouncing around the country – says. “He said, ‘There are two things you can do with your fame – sell out or take it and use it for good.’ I didn’t grasp that at the time.”

“I’ve been offered a lot of stuff,” he says. “Crazy stuff. It wasn’t the right fit, then or now. I don’t want [my kids] thinking I take every show just to make a buck.”

Jon, 35, recently took a new job as director of sales and promotions for Gameface Int. and has started dating single mom Liz Jannetta, 27.

    Grrrrrrreat. Jon just confirmed he is as messed up as Kate. The world knows Kate and Jon lie and want to keep exploiting their kids for the lifestyle they want. I’m sure their kids, if they were old enough to understand, would not want their tabloid lives played out on TV. Jon and Kate, you paid money to get these kids, now YOU support them!

      Just confirmed? Where have you been? His behavior has been atrocious all along!

      Glad he’s changed his ways. Hopefully these two can co-parent together successfully.

    Jon, like why does the world need to know this information? Can’t you and Kate act like reasonable people and keep your personal stuff within the family? This just speaks to you and Kate having a motive for the constant disclosures. STOP EXPLOITING YOUR KIDS WITH YOUR STUFF. Why don’t you and Kate do couples counseling and focus on truth telling and keeping your stories straight. The world knows Kate and you are crappy parents so move on.

    Glad to see he has a nice bone in his body after all. I don’t care how Kate supposedly treated him while they were married, the way he acted after their divorce wa disgusting. And it was so disheartening to come on this site and read comments from other women bashing Kate and siding with Jon for acting like a moron. Women are other women worse enemy. I’m sure those same women who bashing Kate all along wouldn’t have liked their ex husband publicly embarrassing them and then to have other women side with the jerk. Typical women.
    And all those people talking about Jon and Kate exploiting their kids just shut up. All they did as parents was recognize an opportunity to provide for their kids and secure their college funds. Most parents if not all would jump at the chance. The rest of you just jealous you didn’t have the same opportunity as Jon and Kate

      Nice try Sasha or Kate, but taking an opportunity to exploit your kids to make money is not taking the high road, it is child exploitation. This family with no marketable talents cannot let go. Kate and Jon apparently loved all the money they made off their kids, bought many cars, a sportscar for Kate that fits 2, and I could go on and on.

      Bottomline, these two parents are deadbeats and were infamous for? Yep, child exploitation and living beyond their means while the kids earned their own keep.

      The only work they will ever get in the entertainment world is to be used as fodder or made fun of or stir controversy regarding their pathetic ways. You really think they would just move on and be normal?

    He’s only sorry because nobody recognizes him anymore.

    He is just now effectively able to call his wife who is an R.N. and the mother of his children when his daughter is sick. What a concept! I don’t believe the Father of the Year nom will happen anytime soon.
