Jon Gosselin has fallen a long way from the days of Hamptons polo matches and free Ed Hardy swag.
The one-time TLC star has taken a job waiting and bussing tables at Emily’s pub in Beckersville, Pa., leading one source close to the father-of-eight to declare, “Jon has really hit rock bottom.
“Just a few years ago, he was jetting off to France to hobnob in St. Tropez, sipping champagne on a yacht,” a source told the National ENQUIRER of the former reality star. “Now he’s waiting tables at a pub!
“Working the weekday lunch shift, he can’t possibly be taking home more than $40 or $50.”

When an ENQUIRER reporter asked Jon, who divorced his wife Kate Gosselin in 2009, what he was doing there, he said was there to volunteer, and left it at that.
Jon, who programmed computers when TLC initially aired the show that made him famous, Jon & Kate Plus 8, is currently living off the grid, in a cabin sources say he’s “struggling to pay the rent on.”

Jon is also dealing with a lawsuit from his ex, filed last month, centered around his involvement in a tell-all book published about her.
