Remember the dad from TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8? He released a hip-hop song on Friday.
Jon Gosselin, 45, teamed up with The International DJ Casper for the track titled “Voicemail.”
He shared a snippet of the auto-tune-heavy track on Instagram and asked fans to “please share, download and repost” the single.
Jon also threw a release party at a Philadelphia nightclub, scheduled for Friday night.
Nightlife is not new to him. After a string of odd jobs, he stuck around DJing at an Atlantic City nightclub in 2017. He also briefly worked as a stripper at the club.
His hip-hop debut is not unique either. Gosselin said Dr. Oz in 2021 that he would be releasing a full album to give fans a glimpse into his nasty divorce from Kate, 47.
“We’ve been working on this for about five years,” he said. “Everyone wanted me to write a book, so I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll write a book.’ But I’m not something of a “book person”. But what if I did it – I’ve been DJing for so long – what if I wrote the book?”
The TLC stars and parents of eight children were married for 10 years before divorcing in late 2009.
Ready to feel old? Their twin daughters Mady and Cara are now 21, and the sextuplets – Collin, Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Aaden and Joel – are 18.
Jon only gets custody of Hannah and Collin after a tense legal battle with Kate.
“I haven’t spoken to my twins in eight years,” Jon said in The Dr. oz show”.
“I text them every year. And every time I come here for your show or your interview, I text my daughter every time.”
In 2020, Collin accused Jon of kicking and punching the then 16-year-old in a since-deleted Instagram post, which led to an investigation, according to People. Pennsylvania Children and Youth Services said the allegations against him were “baseless”.
