Jon Gosselin, the ex-husband of former reality star Kate Gosselin, and his longtime girlfriend Ellen Ross have called it quits. And in true Gosselin form, Jon announced the split on Twitter.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Jon made it official earlier in the day on Friday.
"Recently, after much thought and discussion, Ellen and I have decided to end our relationship," Jon tweeted. "It was a mutual decision and we are both happy and remain best friends. We both plan to move forward and focus on our separate lives. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time."
Could the fact that Jon has eight children weigh in on the break up? That's a pretty big instant family if they were in fact contemplating marriage. Eight kids are a huge responsibility for anyone to take on.
Some wonder if this split will find Jon Gosselin inching back toward Kate Gosselin. They both have indicated since their days on Jon and Kate Plus 8 that they missed one another. Do you think there's any shot of a reconciliation here?
Kate Gosselin hasn't had anything very good to say about Jon since way before the two split up. In fact, her constant nagging and berating him had to have played a role in driving him away.
A source close to both Jon Gosselin and Ellen Ross had the following to say regarding their split.
"Ellen didn't like the media attention and other things that came with the relationship. That's one of the main reasons they broke up."
Aha! Are those 'other things' the eight Gosselin children?
Did you see this coming? Did you expect that eventually Ellen Ross would tire of Jon Gosselin and his huge gang and send him packing? How do you think the kids will react to their split?
There's no doubt that Kate Gosselin will weigh in on the split in her very own words--and somehow make this into a traumatic event that involves her children. You know--maybe those two (Jon and Kate) really are meant for each other!
