"I've been fighting for 10 years and I will keeping fighting for as long as I have to," Gosselin stressed.
Jon Gosselin has revealed he is not on speaking terms with six out of his eight children.
Earlier this month, the former "Jon and Kate Plus 8" star was granted temporary sole custody of son Collin, 14, who has special needs. Collin's sister, Hannah, has been living with Gosselin since Feb. 2017. However, according to the reality star, Hannah and Collin are the only kids that still talk to him.
"Hannah lives with me full time, and then Collin," Gosselin told reporters at WE tv's Real Love: Relationship Reality TV's Past, Present & Future event on Tuesday. "Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, they're with their mom, and then the twins are 18, so they're adults."
"The other four aren't talking to me, but they're talking to Hannah," he added. "It's what the kids want to do. If they don't want to talk to me, that's fine, as long as they keep up with their sibling connections."
Collin, who has been living at a special needs program for the past two years, will move in with Gosselin at the end of the year, People reported Wednesday. The television personality expressed that he's "excited to have a male around" as it's been just he and Hannah for almost two years.
"It was just easier for the transition," Gosselin said. "So it'd be easier for one parent to just transition [Colin] home, and he wanted to live with me, so it was easier to do it that way."
He went to explain that the last time he saw all of his children, it didn't go so well. "It was just volatile and a lot going on," he said. "It was just not a good time."
The former TLC star and his ex-wife Kate, who split in 2009, have had a brutal custody battle over their sextuplets -- Hannah, Collin, Alexis, Leah, Joel, and Aaden -- and their 18-year-old twins Mady and Cara. Gosselin stressed that he's not backing down from the custody fight anytime soon.
"I've been fighting for 10 years and I will keeping fighting for as long as I have to," he told Entertainment Tonight Tuesday.
He did tell ET that it was up to Mady and Cara to reconnect with him: "I hope my relationship with Mady and Cara gets better but they’re adults now so that kinda just hinges on them, [...] being estranged from them I've kinda learned to live with that now. I have left that in their court for now."
Gosselin also pointed out that he and Kate, who were married for 10 years, aren't on speaking terms either.
"We don't communicate," he said. "We don't even text anymore. The last time I communicated with her was either through attorneys or in court."
"But that's the way it's been," he continued. "I guess that's just the way it works. It's a shame that we can't co-parent and I know the whole world wants us too,but it just doesn't work."
