Jon Gosselin claims his black eye is from the kitchen cabinet

It’s hard to see Jon’s injuries in this picture. US Weekly has a better one

Jon Gosselin was photographed out with a shiner and a cut over his eye, which required stitches. According to Gosselin’s “rep,” who must be new because he’s been making self-incriminating statements to the press on his own behalf for months, the injury happened when Jon tried to open a kitchen cabinet in the dark and smacked himself in the eye. Are you kidding me? That’s like Kate Moss and Jamie Hince saying their bruises happened when a bunch of Christmas decorations fell on them – unlikely. Maybe it went down that way, though Jon was surely wasted at the tmie.


Jon Gosselin had to get stitches along his left eyebrow after a mishap at his $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa.

See how Jon and Kate Gosselin spent their summers.

What happened?

“He hit his head opening a kitchen cabinet door in the dark,” his rep told Thursday. “But he’s OK now.”

Earlier on Thursday morning, the father of eight reunited with estranged wife Kate to send their 8-year-old twins, Mady and Cara, off for their first day of school.

This guy went out drinking and either a boyfriend or husband of one of his many hookups clocked him or someone took offense to one of the many idiotic things he said. Maybe someone just hauled off and punched him for being a douche and complaining about making tens of thousands of dollars a day for hanging out at his house. It’s kind of gratifying to see Jon Gosselin with a black eye. No one deserves to get a beat down, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get some kind of mild satisfaction after seeing the results of one. It’s not like you committed it, and you can’t take it back once it’s done.

Here are Jon and Kate taking their sextuplets to the school bus for the first time on 8/28/09. Credit:

    Bwahaha hope Hailey punched him for cheating on her again.

  2. HEB says:

    I can’t see him getting beat up without everyone knowing about it, I think he probably injured himself while he was drunk, walked into a door, a wall, maybe fell on something-I wouldn’t put it past him.

    Last year my husband had the flu and was delerious-it was almost like he was drunk–he fell over several times and if I hadn’t caught him he would have smacked his head on a marble table–it can totally happen.

  3. Melissa says:

    Wow. Those kiddos look so unhappy and unsure. I know Kate is trying to be reassuring right there but not one of them seems to be comforted by Mommy. What a scary world for them.

  4. LL says:

    And there’s Mommy, Crackberry in hand, because you never know when you might get an important message or have to send one while sending your children off to school. God forbid, she should use both hands to hug her children.

  5. ash says:

    How creepy does Kate look descending on her kids like they are prey, what a T-Rex.

  6. kelbear says:

    The sextuplets are getting so much older and they are all so cute. They are changing in their faces alot.

  7. smallwonder2738 says:

    Hopefully Kate punched him for being such a douche-tastic role model for his kids. He needs to go away… Who ever thought Kate would look like the better of these two?! (Not saying she’s fab or anything..but damn.)

  8. Mave says:

    Jon must feel like a creep now a days.

  9. Hieronymus Grex says:

    And he’s a sissy who let his bitch ex-wife smack him around.

    Can we PLEASE call a moratorium on Jon and Kate and their whole train wreck life for a few days until something noteworthy actually happens?

  10. WhoCaresJon says:

    Why oh why do we have to see or hear from this wimpy, sorry, excuse for a man every single day. He probably got the black eye from staggering around drunk in the dark. But really, who cares, I’m sick of him and that whole story. He needs to crawl back under the rock he crawled out from under, or even better, go get himself one of those 9 to 5 jobs with NO RESPONSIBILITY!!!!!!

  11. elisabetta says:

    This seems really unfair to the kids. It’s one thing to film them when they are just playing and having a good time. But the first day of school is a really scary/exciting day. The sextuplets look terrified! At the very least they deserve to have a few days off and some privacy and space in their lives… Personally, I think filming on the first day of school crosses the line. Look how scared they are!

    Also unfair, these poor little boys have to look up to Jon Gosselin. Their dad and role model is such a freaking loser.

  12. Tazina says:

    I know several people who have been beat up by kitchen cupboard doors. It happens more than you might think. Mine usually get me with a good bang on the top of my head when I forget to close one and then runmage in a bottom drawer, stand up and then KAPOW! Ouch….I totally believe Jon.

  13. JohnnieR says:

    Can anyone please explain to me WHY this man and his female “co-star” even warrant any attention? I don’t get it, I truly don’t understand the attraction these two hold for the public.

    Read a book, for crying out loud.

  14. GOMO1313 says:

    The pic of the kids and expressions on their faces says it all! Why can’t these people just let them alone for awhile till the dust blows over and the parents get their act together. Both Jon and Kate, and TLC are at fault for exploiting the children over and over. A few specials a years on the children should be able to make enough money to be set aside for their education. In the meantime maybe Jon and Kate could find “real” jobs like the rest of the parents of the world with 8 kids…just a thought.

  15. RAMONA says:

    I have to say that Jon Gosselin looks like he is using some sort of drugs and or staying drunk all the time…He is doing something because if you notice all the pictures he took with Kate he had such a fresh face and all around healthy glow….Now in all his pictures he looks like a swollen fat fish faced Guppy…That only comes from drug use or some mighty hard partying…Oh, and watch out for those fast and dangerous cabinet doors Jon, they can be fierce!… I’m just sayin…

  16. luna says:

    Dang, Jon was always kind of odd looking but he is looking ROUGH these days. The kids look like they are growing up beautifully though.

  17. Magsy says:

    He just doesn’t look healthy.

  18. the original kate says:

    i hope one of those kids punched him.
