Jon Gosselin has been vocal about his feud with ex-wife Kate Gosselin over letting his children appear on TV, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the father of eight is a hypocrite because he actually waived his rights for a say in their TV appearances in exchange for not having to pay his child support.
"Despite what he's saying in interviews, Jon chose to waive his rights in whether the children can film or not and in return he doesn't have to pay child support," a source close to Kate revealed.
"That is Jon and Kate's child support agreement. He's being so hypocritical acting like he only wants the best for his children by keeping them off TV, when really he basically sold them."
"Mady and Cara don't talk to Jon and they haven't seen him in nine months. They're really hurt because they feel like he sold them. They don't want anything to do with him," the source said.
"The younger kids still see him because they don't realize yet what he's done. Jon's media blitz about 'fighting' to keep the kids off TV is complete bullish*t."
In a recent interview with on The Wendy Williams Show Jon claimed he would fight putting his kids on TV and said he doesn't need money — but that's because the source says he keeps all his money now that he doesn't have to pay child support.
"I’ll fight it. I don’t need the money. I fought so hard to get my kids off of television," Jon told Wendy.
"It didn’t work in civil court, it didn’t work with TLC, it didn’t work with anyone so I had to go to family court and try and stop it."
Which is where the fight came to an abrupt stop when the feuding exes came to an agreement — Kate decides on TV appearances for the children, and Jon doesn't have to pay child support.
Kate, Mady and Cara were on the TODAY Show Thursday morning in what can only be described as an awkward appearance, the source tells Radar it was nothing more than a case of stage fright.
"Even though the girls grew up with cameras all around them, taping a live TV segment is completely different. They were distracted by everything going on behind the cameras, camera flashes going off, and just the hub-bub of being in a newsroom," the source said.
"The girls froze. Live TV mixed with an uncomfortable topic is hard, and they got stage fright."
