He may have found a new job (installing solar panels), but Jon Gosselin won’t be experiencing a sunny reunion with his ex wife any time soon.
Though a slew of recent tabloid reports have suggested Jon and Kate Gosselin might be rekindling an old flame, fans of Jon and Kate Plus Eight shouldn’t hold their breath. According to a source very close to Kate, “There is absolutely no chance of a reconciliation. They remain civil for the sake of the kids, but that’s it. It’s frustrating for Kate that people keep making up stories. They have both moved on.”
And while Jon has been dating Ellen Ross, the still-single Kate has no problem continuing to fly solo. “Kate wants nothing more than to be seen in a completely different light than Jon is viewed,” says the source. “Obviously he is the father of her children and that won’t change, but she is feeling very happy about her decisions and situation.”
