Jon Gosselin gets snippy when asked about custody arrangement on birthday post for daughter

Gosselin made that clear Thursday in the comments section of a photo he shared that showed him and one of the six sextuplets, Hannah, out for a birthday treat on the day she turned 14.

While there were comments galore about how the teen is growing into a beautiful young lady, Gosselin responded to the few questions about whether he now has custody of Hannah.

“If u hadn’t noticed this a bday post and not custody inquiry post but thanks for showing some support,” he wrote.

Notably, he posted a throwback of all the sextuplets together.

As Gosselin followers know, he’s been fighting about custody of the kids with his ex, Kate Gosselin, for years. The couple split in 2009 after 10 years of marriage and eight children. Besides the sextuplets, they have 17-year-old twin daughters, Mady and Cara.

In the years following their breakup, Jon and Kate have fought over their children in court … and other places.

Police were called to an orthodontist’s office near the family’s base in Wyomissing, Pa., on Aug. 22, 2017, reportedly for a “verbal domestic dispute over child custody involving one minor (Female/13 years old).” Jon, who at the time shared physical custody of their children while Kate maintained full legal custody, had taken one of their daughters to an appointment. Both had come to pick to her up. Reportedly, they argued about which parent would leave with her, but the girl eventually opted to leave with her father. No arrests were made.

While police did not name the child involved in the incident, Jon appears to have a particularly close relationship with Hannah.

In fact, he sought full custody of her in May 2015, according to E!. “Jon is filing for custody because Hannah has expressed she is unhappy and uncomfortable in the house with Kate [Gosselin],” a source told the network.

By June 2016, Jon himself explained to Yahoo Entertainment his schedule with the kids: He got a weekly dinner night with them and had them stay over every other weekend. He said that he only got four of the eight at a time, and had no control over who he would see.

“If the kids want to come, they come,” he said at the time. “I love them all, but I am going to focus on the ones that want to come. My hands are tied.”

Kate celebrated the same day with a photo of several of her birthday “babies.”

At least Jon and Kate only have a few years left before their kids turn 18.

    RCMP raid two pot shops, seize product and issue tickets on Vancouver Island

    The managers of two pot shops on Vancouver Island where police seized thousands of dollars worth of marijuana say the British Columbia government failed them by only approving one store in the province before legalization as raids were reported on both ends of the country. The RCMP say they entered the Port Alberni Cannabis Club at around 11 a.m. Wednesday, before visiting Leaf Compassion Cannabis Dispensary around 2 p.m., and found both stores were open without provincial licences. Police gave her store no warning in the weeks or days before the raid, said Port Alberni Cannabis Club manager Christine Jarvis, who blamed the province for not approving her licence application in time for legalization on Wednesday.

In Atholville, a village with a population of just over 3,000, the arrival of cannabis giant Zenabis has given the struggling community a new lease on life.

    China consumer group raps Apple after ID thefts

    A Chinese consumer body has criticised iPhone maker Apple Inc over a recent data security issue which impacted a number of consumers in China who said they had suffered financial losses after having their Apple IDs stolen. Apple said earlier this month that an internal investigation had found that a "small number of our users' accounts were accessed through phishing scams where two-factor authentication was not enabled". The U.S. company, which makes and sells huge numbers of its products in China, added the issue had also led to a rise in "false and fraudulent refund claims trying to take advantage of this incident." The China Consumer Association said in a statement on its website that Apple should not shirk its responsibility and should compensate consumers in full.

The abandoned remains highlight social, economic and demographic changes in Japan, where more elderly live on welfare and families are more scattered, weakening traditional family bonds and obligations.
