Jon Gosselin Apologizes for "Poor Judgment" After Photographers Caught Him Out With Woman

Jon Gosselin Apologizes For "Poor Judgment"

Jon Gosselin, daddy on Jon & Kate Plus 8, has issued a statement after US magazine published a photo of him leaving a bar at 2 a.m. with a mysterious woman. He said:

Like most people, I have male and female friends and I'm not going to end my friendships just because I'm on TV. However, being out...late at night showed poor judgment on my part. What makes me sick is that my careless behavior has put my family in this uncomfortable position. My family is the most important thing in my life and it kills me that these allegations have hurt them.

This wasn't the first time Jon was spotted out with mysterious women so it is understandable that more than 63 percent of you believe the rumors, but we are sad to hear this news just months after Jon and Kate renewed their vows. Last week the Gosselins talked to EW and shed some light on how fame has changed their family life. To see what he said,


The paparazzi thing and public eye, I don't like it at all. I don't mind taking fan pictures and stuff like that, but it's strange to me. I moved back here to be away from that all, we're in the middle of the country, and now they're here taking pictures, whatever. Everywhere.

We hope for the children's sake that this mom and pop are in it for the long haul. Maybe less alcohol and better judgment will help put a stop to this rumor mill.

Not my business. He's not comfortable with the spotlight and wants to stop the show. Kate wants to continue. He shouldn't have to censor his behavior and he doesn't have to answer to us... just to his kids and family. Maybe Kate should take note and pull the family out of the limelight so they don't all have to worry about how tabloid rumors affect their family.

i belive that people should just stand back and let them live their life because with everyone down on their backs it makes life 1ooo times harder for them

Sugarcat, I almost said the same thing, I can totally understand why he would need an escape. But he discovered he can't escape! ;)

My mom loves this show so I always have to hear about Jon and Kate - wonder what she's thinking about them now? :p I personally can't stand them - she's a witch and he's a pushover, like someone else posted. It's not really a shock that he felt the need to escape. I'm not saying he was justified, but I can understand where he's coming from.

I don't think being out late showed poor judgement, everyone is entitled to a night out. Being with another woman at 2 Am was poor judgement Jon.

they need to stop the show ASAP when this question was asked before, i wasn't convinced they needed to end it, but they do now....they're too much in the public eye for negative stuff now and even if its not true, its TERRIBLE for their children to be reading this about their daddy

every reality show couple i've ever seen on t.v. always gets divorced. it always seems to split them apart, no good ever comes of it.

They renewed their vow and this? Yeah. Nothing is going on there :roll_eyes: I don't really care though, but he needs to understand once you open your family life to the public, and gain fame and money out of the deal, of course, the negative will always be around. Oh gosh, I can't imagine what's going to happen with the children though if their parents can't work it out. I only watch the show once or twice, I felt overwhelmed watching them. I'm often overwhelmed with 1 child (yeah, I'm not one of those perfect and super moms with gazillion patience), I can't imagine having 8. Oy vey.

He was better off not commenting. I went from being a bit skeptical to pretty damn sure something is fishy after reading that statement.

I guess this changes my perception of the situation a little. Why would he feel the need to apologize if he didn't really do anything wrong?

Their marriage is a joke. She's a shrew and he's a push-over.

GIVE FREAKING BREAK ! : The paparazzi thing and public eye, I don't like it at all. Um, then perhaps a NATIONAL TELEVISION SHOW and BOOK TOURS really aren't the right life for you and your family? I'm so tired of people who put themselves out there and then whine about the negatives that come with it.
