Jon Gosselin’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is speaking out on their new relationship. The pair appear to still be going strong a whole week after they were first photographed together.
Photos and stories of Hailey being a coke addict/bar hopping/part-time lesbian be damned. These two are in the it for the long haul. Hailey spoke out to People magazine in a new interview saying she is surprised to be dating Jon, “If you had told me a few months ago, I wouldn’t have believed you.”
Oh there’s more. Hailey says the feelings began to develop while Jon was nursing his broken heart at her parents’ New York City home in May. “He was so strong,” Glassman says. “I admired him.”
She goes on to deny engagement rumors, while claiming her parents “love” Jon.
Hailey also manages to get a shot in at Jon’s ex wife, Kate Gosselin, when asked about what she loves most about the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. “I’m a huge believer in not controlling someone,” says Hailey. “I’ll give my opinion but tell him to do what he wants to do. He said, ‘I’m just not used to having an option.’ I told him life is about options.”
The days just aren’t complete without a new story about The Gosselins. The latest today is news that Jon reunited with Kate and the kids this afternoon for the first time since he took new girlfriend Hailey Glassman on a luxury getaway to France.
Yes the above photo was just taken this afternoon at Kate’s their Pennsylvania home. One can only imagine the degree of awkwardness in their conversations.
RadarOnline has also just reported that Kate has left the home, leaving Jon to have his share of time with the kids. According to their sources, Kate does not want Hailey anywhere around her children. Can you blame her?
Radar also reported some interesting things about Jon’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey. The first being their exclusive interview with Hailey’s ex lesbian lover, who painted a very bad picture of her. She basically described Hailey as being “heavily-involved in drugs” and only using Jon for fame.
Hailey’s past co-workers were able to paint an even more disturbing picture of her. She is described as being “really sexual and slutty” while being “hammered 90% of the time” when she’s not too busy having raunchy sex in public bathrooms.
Jon can pretty much expect to say goodbye to most of the sympathy the public had for him.
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JON’S DECISION TO DATE HAILEY GLASSMAN?
The latest in your daily update of Jon Gosselin’s very public midlife crises is news that his 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is very upset over the bad press she has been receiving.
Apparently Hailey is unhappy with the recent news of her 2005 arrest as well as the party girl photos of her that have been leaked. “U.S. press is all over stories about her being some slutty party girl with a history of arrests,” a source tellsUsmagazine of Hailey. “She was upset tonight.”
Designer Christian Audigier has also denied the report that he will be collaborating on a children’s clothing line with Jon & Hailey. “Christian is absolutely not starting a kids’ clothing line with Jon,” a rep for Audigier said on Monday. “As of right now, there is no clothing line in the works between them at all.”
And the photo above was taken yesterday while Jon and Hailey were leaving a Gucci store in the Cannes. Nothing screams romance like lighting each other’s cigarettes. One can only hope Jon realizes that paying child support for 8 children will not be cheap. It might be a better idea to relax a little of the shopping sprees for his new girl.
Jon Gosselin is speaking out on his new gig with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier, as well as briefly touching up on his new 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, in a new interview with People.
We posted photos of Jon with new GF Hailey this weekend, taken while the two were in St. Tropez. It now seems Jon was mixing business with pleasure as he also met up with Christian Audigier to finalize a deal to design his own line of children’s clothing with Ed Hardy.
The best part of this story? Jon says Hailey will also help with the designs, “She’ll have a lot of input with Christian,” Says Jon. “And I will, too.”
Jon is also making sure to keep the Plus 8 involved saying that his eight kids, who spent the weekend with Kate at the family’s Pennsylvania home, will model his designs in ads for the line. Audigier says he approached Gosselin with the idea after noticing that Jon often wore his tattoo-inspired T-shirts on Jon and Kate Plus Eight.
Sources go on to describe the new couple as looking very happy together. Jon also tells People that he felt “very relaxed” about his weekend with Hailey.
Sighs, must be nice to not have a care in the world other than your child bride 22 year old girlfriend. Check out the facebook photo of a very classy Hailey below.
Plus a picture of Kate Gosselin taken this weekend with this kids below as well. Kate was also seen still wearing her wedding ring this weekend. Not sure what that signifies but umm allrighty Kate.
UPDATE – Us Weekly has posted the mugshot below of Hailey. She was arrested for drug possession in 2005.
With the ink barely dry on his divorce papers, Jon Gosselin is pictured above stepping out with his new 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman. Jon seems to like them rather young.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad was photographed holding hands with Hailey in St. Tropez in the French Riviera on Saturday. Hailey also happens to be the daughter of the doctor who performed Kate’s tummy tuck.
Another interesting fact, Jon was photographed with both Hailey and her mother a couple of weeks back. Just to remind everyone keeping up with this soap opera, it’s been less than a month since Kate Gosselin filed for divorce.
Good luck to new couple, especially to Hailey. I’m guessing she’s very excited about possibly being a future step mom to eight children. That has to be the dream of every 22 year old.
UPDATE – Anther pic below of Jon with Hailey, they are both smoking. Has he always been a smoker? :
Despite initiating divorce proceedings, Jon and Kate Gosselin’s focus remains on the children as it should be. The whole family reunited on Saturday to celebrate the July 4th holiday at their Wernersville, PA home- the day was filled with lots of food and a game of volleyball. Both Jon and Kate picked blueberries so Kate could bake a cake while Jon was seen lighting a sparkler with the kids.
The day’s activities were not filmed due to the production of the show being on hold until August, according to TLC.
32 years old Jon intends to begin a new chapter in his life following the finalization of the divorce. Kate filed for divorce on June 22nd after 10 years of marriage stating the marriage as “irretrievably broken.” She plans to negotiate a fair settlement with Jon.
“While I know it will be hard for them,” said Kate of the effect of the separation on their children, “it will be the best and most peaceful for them.”
Following the June 22nd episode depicting the much-hyped divorce announcement, viewership has significantly declined on TLC’S Jon & Kate Plus 8. The Season 5 premier had an estimated 9.8 million viewers compared to the 2.4 million viewers that tuned in this past Monday.
The show has been placed on hold but plans to return on August 3rd. According to TLC, this will give the Gosselins time to adjust. Despite the family issues, Kate plans to continue taping the reality hit. In a recent statement released on Tuesday, the Gosselins say they will no longer speak to the press.
“Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible,” the Gosselins wrote on TLC’s Web site. “We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many.”
In probably what is one of their best moves in the past few months, TLC’sJon & Kate Gosselin have now decided they will no longer speak to the media about their family issues.
The couple states the following in a statement posted on TLC’s website – “During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation.”
They continue, “Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible…We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many. Thank you.”
TLC also announced last week that the show would be going on hiatus until Aug. 3 to give the family “some time off to regroup.”
This is definitely a smart choice on both parties. It’s time for them to shut up, and focus on strengthening their family during this divorce.
