Jon Gosselin's Girlfriend Says He Throws 'Mantrums'
Hailey Glassman says he's emotionally abusive and sometimes "has trouble with the truth" – but she still loves him
Jon Gosselin has more relationship drama on his hands.
Hailey Glassman says her reality star boyfriend is emotionally abusive – and she’s sick of it. “He’ll call me and take his anger out on me,” Glassman, 22, says in a two-part interview scheduled to air on The Insider beginning Thursday. “He has ‘mantrums.’ I shouldn’t have to put up with being emotionally abused. I cry and say, ‘Why are you so mean to me?’ ”
But she may not get a straight answer. “Sometimes he has trouble with the truth,” she says, “and he will dance and dance around his lies. He’s like Jekyll and Hyde. But I still love him.”

Ever since she started dating Gosselin, Glassman says her life has changed – and not necessarily for the better. “I met Jon in a bubble,” she says. “I’d never seen the show. I had no idea.” After their trip to France in July, she says she’s faced harsh criticism. “People judge me before they meet me. I get threats everyday. I get called a home wrecker and a fat whore. People will stare or point. It gets worse everyday.”
She admits their relationship is “not normal,” but Glassman says she can’t imagine leaving Gosselin. “I don’t want to leave him all alone,” she says. “At the end of the day, I love him but I dislike him at times. When I love someone I would never hurt them.”
A source close to Jon says, “He was very supportive of her doing the interview. He wants her to clear her name.” As for Gosselin’s anger, the source says, “He has a lot of on his plate and he gets frustrated but he’s supportive of her.”
