The 16-year-old now lives with his sister Hannah and his father, two years after he left the boarding school, Kate sent him to.
On his private Instagram page, he wrote, “Got a new cut and I'm doing better than ever. Life is too great to not enjoy!" with the hashtag "live like it's your last day."
Just last week Collin made shocking allegations against his father, calling him a “liar” and accusing him of abuse in a now-deleted Instagram post. He had written, “He then continued to kick me in the ribs after I was on the floor. He is a liar.” He also alleged that Jon Gosselin had punched him "in the face" until he had a swollen nose and began bleeding on Wednesday.
Jon Gosselin has not responded to the allegations made by his son. Rather he has posted pictures with his girlfriend, Colleen Conrad, and friends on Instagram. Also, a post on Aug 29 contained Collin with captioned, “A quick, short but amazing and also needed quick vacation! Love my family and our friends in Ponte Vedra.”
Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin has eight children together- 19-year-old twins Cara Gosselin and Mady Gosselin; and 16-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aeden, Collin, Leah, and Joel. The family rose to fame after they were feature on TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 series which ran from 2007 to 2009. After their divorce, the show was renamed to Kate Plus 8 and continued without Jon. Last year Kate Plus Date was aired on TLC which showed Kate going on date(s).
Initially, Kate had full legal custody and shared physical custody of all eight children. But in December 2018 Jon was given sole legal and physical custody of Collin and a year later The Daily Mail published a letter Collin wrote to his father, asking him to pull him out of Fairmount Behavioral Health Institute. One of the sextuplets, Hannah, also joined her brother and Collin in Pennsylvania.
