Jon Gosselin revealed that he isn’t on speaking terms with his eldest daughters, Madelyn and Cara.

Following his divorce from Kate Gosselin in December 2009, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star admitted that his relationship with several of his children is strained.

“Everybody used to come to my house,” Gosselin, 39, told Entertainment Tonight. “You know, it was great, and then Madelyn and Cara just stopped coming, around 12 to 13 [years old]. I didn’t question it. I was just like, ‘Hey, do what you want, be with your friends,’ and then it just became they’re not coming.”

After the twins stopped visiting their father, Gosselin says he focused his attention on his sextuplets, who are now 12.

“Then a couple years went by and then Collin stopped coming,” he said of not seeing his son for the past two years. “I thought, ‘Maybe he just wants to do stuff with Mommy or whatever,’ and then it became long term.”

“The kids that I do get are Hannah, Leah, Joel and Aaden,” Jon admitted in the interview, adding, “Sometimes I get Alexis but not often.”

“Madelyn and Cara, I don’t see that much, or often,” Jon shared of his relationship with the near 16-year-olds. “We’re kind of not talking right now.”
