Jon Gosselin has become a male entertainer in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
After rumours began to swirl, the father of eight confirmed his new job to Entertainment Tonight, revealing that it’s a “blessing” to have found a job as a male stripper.
“I work at Dusk Nightclub in Atlantic City, New Jersey. I’m a member of the Senate DJ group and I also help with Promotion,” he said. “I DJ at the club sometimes, but I find promotion is more rewarding both financially and emotionally. I like taking care of people and making others feel welcome.”
The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star also shared that he’s performing in the nightclub’s Men Untamed Revue show, with his debut performance taking place on April 1.
“I’m an integral part of the show,” he added. “Being part of something is a blessing. Since I joined Senate DJ I’ve felt like I belong to something and I’m not just out there on my own — I feel as if I’m part of a fraternity or brotherhood.”
The owner of the club, Eric Millstein, revealed that Gosselin’s role in the “very, very classy” production will be during the opening and closing numbers.
Back in November, Gosselin revealed that his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, was hiding one of their sons from him.
Jon said that Kate told him that Collin, 12, is enrolled in a “special school for special needs kids with behavioural problems,” but Jon insists law-enforcement officials have given him other information.
“I have an idea where he is but I don’t really know where he is,” Jon said to Entertainment Tonight.
Kate, 41, currently has full custody of all the children, and Jon, 39, has partial physical custody — but he said he hasn’t seen Collin in nearly two years.
