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.
