Jon Gosselin's NYC Apartment Vandalized

Jon Gosselin's NYC Apartment Vandalized

Jon Gosselin‘s New York City apartment on the Upper West Side was ransacked.

“It was no minor incident,” his rep tells

Sources on the scene reveal that Jon‘s couch and bed are sliced up, clothes are missing and knives are missing from the kitchen drawers. Apparently Jon‘s suits, shirts and shoes were also ripped apart.

TMZ is reporting that a note was left behind with his ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman‘s name signed at the bottom (it could be a fake signature).

Coincidentally, Jon hasn’t been in his apartment for a week (he’s been spending the holidays with Kate and the kids). Hailey was at the apartment earlier this week to collect some of her belongings.

UPDATE: Jon‘s attorney Mark Jay Heller tells, “Jon Gosselin called me this afternoon, on the occasion when he entered his apartment in Manhattan and was horrified, disheartened, and saddened to observe the devastation of his furniture, clothing and personal belongings, which were apparently slashed with a butcher knife by a very troubled and sick perpetrator. Jon immediately contacted me and facilitated the able assistance of the New York City Police Department who immediately dispatched an experienced Detective to Jon’s apartment, where a forensic team commenced an intense investigation including photographing and fingerprinting of evidence at the crime scene. In addition, the Police Department seized a note that had been affixed to Jon’s bedroom dresser by a butcher knife that was speared through the note into the wooden dresser – The note will be forensically analyzed by a handwriting expert. At this time, I will not release the contents of the note or the signator, however, both Jon and I have determined that the perpetrator must be vigorously prosecuted on Felony charges. In addition to the aforementioned vandalism, Jon’s television, CD player, coffee maker, a Nintendo Wii game, dishes, pots and pans were burglarized from his apartment, and Jon’s shoes, shirts, luggage, bed, curtain, rugs and other furnishings in the apartment were slashed, most likely by the same butcher knife that affixed the note to his dresser. Sadly, along with the trashing of Jon’s apartment, a Ming vase, believed to be over 100 years old that was a family heirloom, was smashed to pieces. However, the greatest damage from this vicious, mean spirited and heartless crime was perpetrated not on Jon’s property and possessions, but on Jon Gosselin himself, who experienced a traumatic, emotional, roller coast ride having just shared a joyful family gathering with his children during their Christmas Celebration and the last thing that Jon contemplated when entering his New York City apartment, on what is suppose to be a Season that heralds in peace and goodwill, was to be devastated by such a cruel and cold-blooded act that was apparently intended to cut to his heart. “

    Did you know that Karma is anti-Christian? Just wondering because so many Christians seem to believe in it, yet the bible disputes it.

    Karma is a theological concept found in the Buddhist and Hindu religions. It is the idea that how you live your life will determine the quality of life you will have after reincarnation. If you are unselfish, kind, and holy during this lifetime, you will be rewarded by being reincarnated (reborn into a new earthly body) into a pleasant life. However, if you live a life of selfishness and evil, you will be reincarnated into a less-than-pleasant lifestyle. In other words, you reap in the next life what you sow in this one. Karma is based on the theological belief in reincarnation. The Bible rejects the idea of reincarnation; therefore, it does not support the idea of karma.

  • reality

    You know, at least she got it out of her system and didn’t place the knife into his system. ;0)

  • haley

    @Ariel: What exactly does this have to do with Jon Gosselin being burglarized? Don’t get it!

  • christian

    Karma isn’t anti-christian idiot. The bible state: “you reap what you sow”. or Do unto others as you would have others do unto you..

    Which is basically the same as “karma”..

    And Hailey should be arrested.

  • Well really!


    It’s not very Christian to call somebody an idiot, nor is it Christian to believe in Karma. Do some research.

  • Ana


    So is birth control, same sex marriages, among others. Doesn’t make people anti-Christian for having a shared belief in a certain aspect of another religion or alterations of your own (remember Christianism has quite a lot of ramifications).

    That being said, I meant Karma as in the pop culture definition, which isn’t necessarily anti-Christian and is widely used.

  • Ana


    You might also want to take a look at this:

    “The concept of karma is part of the world view of many millions of people throughout the world. Many in western cultures or with a Christian upbringing have incorporated a notion of karma. The Christian concept of reaping what you sow from Galatians 6:7 can be considered equivalent to Karma.[34]”

    Just sayin’…

  • Father Tom


    Wikipedia is written by anybody who wants to put in their 2 cents worth. I’ve done a paper on this at Theological school. In simple terms, Karma revolves around reincarnation. Real Christians absolutely do not believe in reincarnation – it’s as simple as that. :) Yes, on the outside there appear to be similarities, but in reality Karma is as un-Christian as can be.

    Sorry to go off topic – back to Jon Gosselin?

  • Halli


  • AGA

    Don’t really like him,but I don’t thing that he deserved this…and he might be a douce etc but I bet that he is pis*ed about that 100yr old vase!! He should not of made promises to young girls so soon after filing for divorce.He should of taking his time and eased into dating again instead he started acting like a horny teenager!

  • Gunn Fan

    Jon’s attorney needs to check his facts: If it’s a Ming vase, it ain’t 100 years old. It would have to be approximately 350 to 750 years old. It’s a lousy thing to have happen, but you don’t need to make up ‘facts’ in an attempt to garner sympathy.

  • me, myself & I

    Wow – I think his lawyer must be getting paid by the word – there are plenty of adjectives in that press release. Its sad, but considering his behaviour to his family and other over the past few months, hardly surprising. Maybe in the future he will treat people with the type of respect his lawyer is telling us that he deserves to be treated with.

  • LuckyL

    Did anyone really care enough to read all that sh*t? That’s all I have to say.

  • Faith

    Im not a big fan of John Gosselin. But I don’t think he deserves that.

  • LauraSOS

    @Father Tom: Get a life dude. Seriously. Only idiots interpret the Bible literally. Jesus himself said he taught through metaphors. And I think we can all agree, real Christians or not, that “Christianity” does believe in the idea of if you do bad things “aka sins* that bad things can and should come back to you ten-fold. By the way, Jesus was Jewish, not Christian. And the Bible was written by men who wrote what they wanted to write, and often contradicted each other. Many “books” of the Bible were thrown out, and hidden also. So you simply cannot take it literally unless you are an idiot. The stories are there to teach life lessons. And people that use them to argue a silly point like you my friend are sadly missing the point of “real” Christianity.

  • Ana

    @Father Tom:

    If you would care to research, Wikipedia has an average of 4 mistakes per article while more ‘reliable’ sources like Encyclopedia Britannica has about 6 mistakes (if not more). Read Wikinomics. It’ll open your closed mind. You were saying?

    Fine, I’m a bad Christian because I believe in the law of cause and effect, whatever. I’ll let God do the judgment, not you.

    Back to the topic…is Haley really that stupid to leave a note behind? There’s something fishy going on.

  • Carrie Bradshaw

    I bet he hired someone to do it, just for publicity and a bit of sympathy.


  • Anonymous

    all this is, is confirmation that most women r psycho b*tches who can’t handle rejection, ha ha. Man I love rejectin’ women, just 4 the p*ssy looks on their faces. More fun than a barrel o’ monkeys!

  • Mo

    hahahahahahaha! i hate this dumb ass. good! even though he probably did it himself or hired someone for some publicity!

  • Tee

    Typical attorney. Says in 5000 words what could have been said in 2 sentences. I don’t think Hailey did it. It’s another staged incident to get himself into the news.

  • Peach

    Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person.

  • FaithLynette

    …ALL that dough being put out for an elaborate/up-scale/expensive apartment and there’s NOT enough adequate security to stop someone from vandalizing an apartment like this—Where’s the security cameras? What’s the security clearance method to even get into the building?… {{unless-s-s-s-ssss}} *duh* ~ IT WAS AN INSIDE JOB (either someone he knew that had access to the apartment*or* a disgruntled employee).

  • Flo

    Hailey or Steve?

  • Rhonda

    Jon sure likes his women insane crazy!

  • Nana

    Well, I noticed that Hailey tweeted on Dec. 25th, that the week before she and her family learned that he had been pocketing the rent money, rather than paying the rent. So, let’s see…..what day exactly was the formerly-shared apt. ruined? Was it about Dec. 18th or so???

  • Kimberly

    I wish people would leave Jon alone. A lot of people thinks he isn’t the good one an all, but my mom an I still like him over Kate. I currently don’t think he deserved this. He didn’t do nothing like this to anyone, nothing even close to it. I think you all are being extremely rude about him. After all he is a human being. We all make mistakes and what he did in my eyes wasn’t nothing extreme. I too would want to get away from Kate after being be littled and treated like a child. That is very embarrassing, especially in public places. He could never do anything right in Kate’s eyes. Always gripe after gripe after gripe!

  • I can’t take it anymore

    No,Ididnot all ofthatcrap said by his atty.

    Jon haters and Kate lovers, remember since you love Kateand keep talking about karam, you’ll LOVE the new show featuring the kids.

    It is on E! and it is called,The Gosselin 8, E!’s special in depth look at The Gosselin 8.The show is coming on in about 8 years being that Caraand Mady will be 16 then’ the kids willbe wanting theirmoney fromJon and Kate. Wanting emanciaption.
    School problems.Oh it isgoing to be a great show.

    Jon does not need an atty. He really picked atty’s that are like almost dibarred for they are such bad atty’s. Jon did not need a NYC apt. Kate does not need a home ,worth a few hundred thousand, in Maryland.

    Both people need to parent those 8 kids and live in tha big home on all of those acres given to them in the deal by TLC.

    This is just to start.

    Jon needs toget a job.

    Kate needs to get a job.

    Do something that does not take them away from those 8 kids who all need individual attention.

    Let go of the chef, nannies,and security,pr teams, agents, lawyers.

    Kate does not need TLC’s great team of pr people,lawyers, managers, trying to get her a spot on a talk show, a voice over for a Disney movie,and a be on Dancing With The Stars.

    She needs to mother her 8 little faces.

    Jon still has a few hundred thousand left.He wasted most his.Kate is worth a few million.

  • Iris

    Hailey is one crazy woman. I have no doubt that Hailey did it. It just seems like something that she would like to do.

  • Lucy Lover

    wow, he should sue her for all her money

  • marant

    hmmm….this smells like katrazy.poor jon .

  • longchamp

    shouldn’t have given kate a spare key, haha

  • VICTORIA # 1

    @NUMBER # 39

    I did not hear about Kate wanting to do a ” voice over for a Disney
    Movie or try out for Dancing with the Stars.” Or anything else that
    sounds ridiculous for her to do. GAG !!!! That is about as silly
    and retarded as Bristol Palin’s ex -boyfriend, posing in his birthday suit for play-
    girl. What is next?? Jon Gosselin Douche Bag posing the same way with
    his stomach hanging out, drinking a beer and smoking a nicotine
    cancer, smelly stick laying on a furry bear rug?

    What kind of nasty agents do they have? No-one wanted to watch
    the show anymore, so do they actually think someone left in the
    human television world, will care WHAT they do from here on out?
    They aren’t ANYBODY!!!!! NO-ONE!!!! WE DON’T CARE ANYMORE!!

    Send them in the REAL blue-collar working world. The majority is sick
    of them.

  • watch

    The bible says; ” be not deceived, God is not mocked…whatsoever a man sow….yet shall he reap”. That’s your “karma”. There is nothing new about karma. The story is as old as the hills. “Karma” is not just for Jon…..karma is for all of us. Yeah, Jon made some stupid mistakes but so have we all. Before you start talking about Jon and what he deserves………think about what you deserve.

  • Lisa2

    Ok… time for me to give my 2 cents…. lol…..

    About the religion thing?? Who cares? Believe in what you want to believe? Does it really matter? Just use the “Golden Rule” which is that you treat people the way you want to be treated. There is different versions, so that is why I am not quoting so i don’t start another issue.

    As for Jon, he is not being a responsible parent. He is not providing for his family or even attempting to look for a job, he is loafing around doing NOTHING while Kate is the main caretaker. If you have children, you do whatever it takes to find a job and provide for them. I don’t care if he has to wash cars for a living, you do what you have to do to provide for your family. He has been like this for years and I don’t blame Kate for getting on him, she was probably fed up with it.

    Kate is a go getter and she will do whatever it takes to provide for the family, that is why she writes books and does her special engagements. I think she is a very organized woman and is a wonderful mother. Her kids are her life, and they come first and it shows. She could be tough on Jon but in my opinion is that he deserved some of it and if he didn’t like it then they should seek counseling, and not start cheating and acting like he is single bachelor. Even to this day, Kate has not really said negative things about Jon, but that isn’t the case with Jon, yet, and he was the one that started the rumors about Kate and the bodyguard.

    Hope Kate doesn’t have to share any future earnings with Jon, and who knows, Jon may have to return to live with his own Mother again. It looks like that is where he will end up without having any future. What a sad life he leads…….

  • Lisa2

    @VICTORIA # 1: Kate was on Jay Leno where they had her on camera on her and she was taking questions via Skype or something like that, and they asked her questions from the audience. So, someone asked her what she would like to do, and she said she would like to dance on Dancing with the Stars because she can’t dance, then she said she would like to do a voice over too since her kids would think it was neat. It wasnt anything serious, it was all in fun.
