On Monday, the former reality star recently revealed that he and his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin don’t talk. During an appearance on Dr. Oz, Jon admitted he also doesn't see a future in coparenting their kids with his ex.

Speaking on his relationship with his former wife, after their marriage ended back in June 2009, he said:

We don't have a relationship right now. We don't talk, nothing. It's very nothing. The only time I see my ex-wife is in court because we have exhausted all opportunities to co-parent. It's just never going to happen.

The 42-year-old also opened up about how money and fame has twisted his ex-wife and the effect of living in the spotlight on their eight children. He said:

I believe her intentions, in the beginning, were good intentions. Bringing kids into the world that she fought to have, these kids. But I think once fame and money got involved, it twisted her belief system. On my end, I’ve been fighting to get my kids off TV forever.
