Mady, one of the children of Kate and Jon Gosselin, took to Instagram this week to look back at 2019 and ahead to 2020. It was a rocky year for the family as the public feud between Mady's parents escalated after the gag order from their 2009 divorce expired.
"2019: you were a bittersweet, stressful, challenging, crazy year. but you were also refreshing, wonderful, unpredictable & full of achievements i’m so proud of. it’s all about balance, i guess :) happy new year!! here’s to 2020 being cooler & crazier," Mady, 19, captioned a post that featured a photo of her in a field.
At least one troll left a comment on the post referring to her and her mom's spat with Jon.
"Very unhealthy to alienate yourself from a parent. If you want to grow to be a well rounded individual perhaps a role model be thankful for having two parents who love you even if they do it in different ways. Their not perfect but neither are you! Set the example for your siblings and find forgiveness so you can all be together in some way! This is what you won’t learn in college! Think about your role models or the women you look up too...Its called growth! All the best in 2020," the user wrote.
That comes partially in reference to what Jon had to say on Dr. Oz in November.
"Fame's different only because fame… things are given to you," Jon said at the time. "You're held to a higher standard. You're put on a pedestal… the attention, it’s almost like a drug, like an addiction. And once you have that, and that lifestyle, you can see certain tendencies in people. It just… it feeds and feeds and feeds.
"I didn’t understand, at first, why but now I understand why," Jon added. "All she wanted was legal custody to film my kids to sustain her lifestyle and their lifestyle. It gets all warped. That’s fame though. It just twists things around."
In 2018, Mady opened up to PEOPLE about her relationship with her father.
"He makes it seem like we're being kept from him, which is insane," Mady said. "He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don't want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.
"He doesn't even know us," she added. "How can he dare to talk about us?"
