Jon Gosselin: Fame Canceled Out Conviction
Jon Gosselin meets with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a former adviser to Michael Jackson, at a West Side Synagogue on Sunday (November 1).
“I think I’m just misunderstood. I’m not a fame seeker. Everyday I look in the mirror and I wonder [why I'm famous]. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m not a Nobel Peace Prizewinner. I just had eight kids and I had a show on TLC,” Jon said at the event, according to People. “Half the stuff I’ve done, if I look at my moral compass, I shouldn’t have done,” explained Jon. “I know that but I did it anyway. It’s like fame canceled out conviction.”
“It’s hard for me because I can’t forgive myself for the things I’ve done,” Jon said. “So to ask for forgiveness from someone who may never forgive me is tough for me. I do apologize to Kate. I’m sorry for doing the things I did. I do ask for her forgiveness.”
