Fans of the show wondered about Collin’s absence from Season 5, and in August 2016, Kate revealed that Collin was away seeking treatment for educational and social challenges.
In November of 2016, during an interview with Good Morning America’s Amy Robach, Kate defended her decision to send Collin away, stating, “It was on the advice of the doctors, and it had to happen. He is plodding along, and we are too. It definitely was necessary, and I’ll go to the ends of the Earth for the best for each of them. This was the best thing I can do for him right now, and that comforts me.”
She added, “There is contact [with Collin], but it’s not the same as being at home.”
Her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, later revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he didn’t know the whereabouts of his son. However, Kate explained, “We are both court ordered not to speak about the care and custody of our children in detail. I’ve known all along where [Collin] is, but the world doesn’t know, and I’ll leave it at that.”
