Jon Gosselin has hit rock bottom, according to new reports emerging into the troubles being faced by the once successful TV star.
Gosselin's finances have plummeted causing him problems to such an extent that prison time is a possibility, according to a Star Magazine report.
Gosselin, 35, has told Star in an exclusive interview: "I can't afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tell me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support. I am a single father who's trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do - pay child support or rent? I need to support my kids, but I could lose my house, and I need my home to continue to have custody."
The once successful reality TV star, who was previously married with eight children, added: "I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I'm going to end up in jail because I can't afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money."
The former TLC star said, "I'm doing the best I can, but life is so expensive with eight kids!"
Fans of hit TV show TLC will remember Jon and Kate Gosselin featuring by giving an insight to their lives with their eight children, who included twins Cara and Madelyn, as well as sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel.
However, the couple underwent a messy divorce in 2009, which sparked a new career in reality TV for Kate Gosselin, who featured in "Kate Plus 8" with her children. However, Jon Gosselin decided to shun reality TV and move to rural Pennsylvania.
Jon continues to turn his back on reality TV and even rebukes Kate's upcoming work for her new show which will show her traveling across the United States looking for her perfect mate.
"I think this is completely ridiculous! We have eight children and they need us, she is putting reality TV and dating in front of the kids who need to have their mother," Jon Gosselin told Star.
Jon Gosselin himself has already found new love in Liz Jannetta, who is herself a mother of three.
The full interview will be featured in the Star Magazine issue hitting shops from Thursday.
