Hannah Gosselin claims mom Kate ‘separated’ brother Collin from siblings

Hannah Gosselin has made claims that her mother, Kate, intentionally kept her brother Collin separated from his siblings while they were growing up. In a preview of Vice TV’s upcoming documentary titled “Dark Side of the 2000s,” the 19-year-old sextuplet revealed that Collin would be excluded from activities and have different meal times compared to the rest of the family. Hannah, along with her siblings Leah, Hannah, Alexis, Aaden, and Joel, as well as her twin sisters Mady and Cara, gained public attention as infants when they were featured in numerous TV specials about their large family, led by parents Jon and Kate. Hannah reiterated that Collin was not allowed to play outside with them and had separate meal times in Vice TV’s docu-series “Dark Side of the 2000s.”

Hannah theorized that their mother directed her anger and frustrations from her divorce with Jon towards Collin. The Gosselin family became even more famous when they starred in the popular TLC show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” from 2007 to 2009. Following their divorce, Kate, now 48, was granted primary custody of their eight children in December 2009, leading to ongoing public battles between Kate and Jon, now 46. Five years later, Kate sent Collin, who was 12 years old at the time, to a behavioral institution to address his “special needs,” while the rest of the children remained in their Pennsylvania home. The Gosselin family, consisting of twins and sextuplets, became the focus of the TLC reality series “Jon & Kate Plus 8” in the mid-2000s.

In 2018, Jon removed Collin from the institution after the teenager pleaded with his father to “save” him. Collin, now 19, moved in with his father and his sister Hannah, who had already left their mother’s home two years prior. Collin acknowledged in Vice’s upcoming documentary that he was not a perfect child growing up. Despite this, he believed that his misbehavior was no different from his siblings and speculated that Kate projected her frustrations from the divorce onto him. He understood that his mother was going through a difficult time with the divorce and other challenges. He stated, “I want to think that she needed someone to take out her anger and frustration on, and it was just kind of me. I was in the way and I was there. So, she chose me.”

Hannah also criticized their estranged mother for failing to teach Collin appropriate boundaries. Kate had sent Collin to a behavioral institution when he was only 12 years old. According to Hannah, there was a lack of effort in their home to help him understand acceptable behavior. Collin has had a minimal relationship with his mother for many years. In a November 2022 interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” he stated that he was doing well without Kate in his life and had not spoken to his siblings, except for Hannah, in five or six years. In 2018, Collin moved in with his father and sister Hannah, who had left Kate’s home two years earlier.

Recently, Kate attended her estranged children’s high school graduation but allegedly ignored Collin. An insider claimed that Kate took photos with Hannah but did not acknowledge or take any pictures with Collin. The source also stated that Kate did not show any support or applause for the teenagers. This was surprising considering that she has been absent from Collin’s adult life and has limited contact with Hannah.

Hannah Gosselin claims her mom, Kate, purposely kept brother Collin away from his siblings when they were growing up.

“He would be separated from us,” the 19-year-old sextuplet said of her brother in a preview of Vice TV’s upcoming documentary titled “Dark Side of the 2000s.”

“Like, he would not get to come and play outside with us,” she continued. “He would eat dinner at different times than us.”

Hannah and Collin — along with fellow sextuplets Leah, Hannah, Alexis, Aaden and Joel, and now-22-year-old twin sisters Mady and Cara — were introduced to the public when they were infants, starring in multiple TV specials about their large family headed by parents Jon and Kate.

The family eventually starred in the hugely popular TLC show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” from 2007 to 2009, as well as the “Kate Plus 8” spin-off, which aired after the famous couple got divorced.

Kate, now 48, was granted primary custody of her eight children in December 2009, as she and Jon, now 46, continued to publicly battle.

Five years later, the “Dancing with the Stars” alum sent Collin, who was 12 years old at the time, to a behavioral institution to help with his “special needs.” The rest of the children remained in her Pennsylvania home.

Jon removed Collin from the institution in 2018 after the teen begged his father to “save” him from the establishment.

Upon his departure, Collin, 19, moved in with his father and sister Hannah, who moved out of her mother’s home two years prior.

Collin acknowledged in Vice’s doc, which will be released on July 18, that he was not “a perfect child” growing up.

However, he said his “misbehaving was no different from [his] siblings” and theorized Kate took out her frustrations over her divorce on him.

“I know my mother was going through a lot of things,” Collin said. “I mean, a divorce and plenty of different things that can’t be easy to go through.”

“And, you know, I want to think that she needed someone to take out her anger and frustration on, and it was just kind of me. I was in the way and I was there. So, she chose me,” he added.

Hannah also criticized their estranged mother for not teaching Collin any boundaries.

“I don’t think effort was made in the home to help him learn what behavior is acceptable and what behavior is not acceptable,” the teen said.

Collin has had a nonexistent relationship with his mother for many years.

He told “Entertainment Tonight” in a November 2022 interview that he was “doing very well” without Kate in his life and hadn’t spoken to his siblings, besides Hannah, in “five or six years.”

Last month, Kate attended her estranged children’s high school graduation, but allegedly snubbed Collin.

“Kate did end up taking photos with Hannah, but never spoke to Collin and never took photos with him,” an insider told The Sun, also alleging that she “didn’t even clap” for the teenagers.

“[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 concluded.
