Jon and Kate Gosselin of TLC's docudrama Jon & Kate Plus 8, about their family life with two sets of multiples, may have trouble in paradise.
The couple appears to have serious marriage problems now that Jon has started spending increasing amounts of time away from home and partying with college girls, claims InTouchWeekly.com.
In a Feb. 6 incident, Jon was reportedly hanging out at Mimi's martini bar in Huntingdon, Penn. — easily three hours away from the new home he and Kate moved into with their children — when he met some girls from Juniata College who invited him to a house party.
"He walked in with two girls he met at Mimi's bar," a senior tells the magazine. "It was so cool."
Jon then proceeded to play beer pong and then follow the party with a nightcap at Memories Sports Bar & Grill, where he reportedly got drunker, flirted with the Juniata girls and told one, "We might be getting a divorce."
Star Magazine had earlier reported one witness' account:
"He was dirty dancing with several of them, making out, kissing them on their necks and mouths. I thought it was rather surprising for a father with his wife and so many kids at home to be acting like this. He was all over one girl, a long-haired blonde who's nearly 6 feet tall. He left with several of the girls, including her."
All the rumors have prompted Jon to issue the following statement through his rep:
"It is certainly hurtful for people to spread rumors and lies about us. It certainly makes me reluctant to live my life like the average person would. This has made it very clear that the simplest innocent gesture — such as taking a picture with a fan, can be taken out of context. As you can see on the show, I am not perfect, but I am a part of a loving family and couple."
Jon and Kate have often bickered on camera, part of the everyday activities on the show that includes family outings, movie nights and dentist visits. The couple even traveled to Hawaii to renew their wedding vows. The latest episodes documented their move into a $1.3 million mansion and the purchase of two German Shepherd puppies.
Their children include 8-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 4-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel. The children were the result of fertility treatments.
