AceShowbiz - Kate Gosselin's family drama continues off camera. According to a new report, the reality TV star attended daughter Hannah and son Collin's high school graduation, but "coldly snubbed" her son.
A source told The Sun on Wednesday, June 7 that the "Kate Plus Date" star gave "only Hannah love" at the ceremony. "Kate did end up taking photos with Hannah, but never spoke to Collin and never took photos with him," the insider claimed.
It was also said that the 48-year-old "didn't even clap" for the teens. "[Her presence] was a bit of a surprise considering she truly has been missing from most of Collin's adult life and barely sees Hannah," the source added.
The report further stated that Kate attended the ceremony with Leah, one of Hannah and Collin's sextuplet siblings. As for Alexis, Joel and Aaden (19), as well as twins Madelyn and Cara (22), they were reportedly not present at the Pennsylvania ceremony.
The outlet noted that Jon Gosselin, who posed for pictures with both graduates in their red caps and gowns, was "proud" of the teens. He was joined by his mom Pamela Costello and his ex-girlfriend Colleen Conrad, who split from him in 2021.
Collin's graduation came after he discussed estrangement from Kate in an interview in November 2022. "I want to believe it was because of TV and what being in the public eye does to a family," Collin told Entertainment Tonight at the time. "I think it tore us apart. It gave us less time to actually be together as a family."
"I came to the conclusion that everybody has their own agenda, you know?" the "Jon & Kate Plus 8" alum explained. "My mom had her own agenda, and I don't know exactly what that was. But I was put in a tough spot and my agenda was to make it out on top of that tough spot."
Of the possibility of reconciliation with his mom, Collin, who is now living with dad Jon and sister Hannah, said it would be "ideal" for him. "It's unfortunate that we didn't have a relationship. I think every son wants to have a relationship with their mom. But I'm doing very well," he shared. In the interview, the former reality TV star also revealed that he hasn't talked with his other siblings for like more than 7 years.
