Jon Gosselin’s daughter Hannah defends dad after brother’s abuse claims
Jon Gosselin’s daughter Hannah has come to his defense after her 16-year-old brother Collin accused Jon of physically abusing him.
“My dad loves us,” Hannah, also 16, told the Daily Mail in a statement Wednesday. “He’s never been abusive.”
“My dad has been there for me and Collin no matter what,” she added. “He’s been a very loving and supportive dad throughout everything.”
Hannah’s statement comes after Jon denied Collin’s abuse claims earlier this month. Jon’s ex-wife Kate Gosselin subsequently spoke out about Collin’s accusations and alleged that Jon is a “violent” and “abusive” person.
Hannah is one of the Gosselin sextuplets — along with siblings Collin, Aaden, Alexis, Leah and Joel.
“Jon has never abused Collin,” Jon’s rep told E! News last week. “No charges have been filed against him and there’s no ongoing [County of Berks, Pennsylvania Child & Youth Services] investigation. Collin has endured severe trauma. Jon is a loving father who has worked hard to ensure that his son gets the support and help he needs.”
In a since-deleted social media post, Collin claimed: “My dad is a liar. Yesterday he beat me up and thought nothing of it, he punched me in the face and gave me a swollen nose and I started bleeding. He then continued to kick me in the ribs after I was on the floor. He is a liar.”
Jon and Kate divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage. He and his sister Hannah moved in with Jon, while the rest of his siblings live with Kate.
