Jon Gosselin was once the star on the reality TV show “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ and living in a million-dollar home. Now he’s waiting tables and living in a log cabin without Internet and television. “Entertainment Tonight” found Jon at the Black Dog Cafe in his home state of Pennsylvania. The former reality star is a waiter there and told reporters it’s been “next to nearly impossible” for him to find work.
According to The Huffington Post, the family was making $22,500 per episode. Gosselin denies claims that he made “millions and millions” of dollars during the show’s run. He addressed his hard partying after he and Kate split saying that people were paying him to go out and he needed money so it was a no-brainer.
According to Gosselin, “I’ve hit rock bottom like 20 times,” he told “ET,” adding that he isn’t sure why people have said he is struggling to make ends meet. “And then I just bounce back and go somewhere else.” He also told the media that he and Kate don’t have a relationship anymore. They just communicate via text and e-mail. He is also not paying child support because both he and Kate are supporting the children.
