KATE Gosselin's son has sent some major shade as he wished his dad Jon a happy birthday and thanked him for "always having my back".
Jon, 43, and Kate have been bitterly estranged since they split in 2009 and Jon has custody of two of the pair's sextuplets, Collin and Hannah.
Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, all 15, are all in Kate’s care, along with older twins Mady and Cara, and the six are thought to have little contact with their father.
On Wednesday, Collin captioned two photos with his dad: “Happy birthday dad!!!!
"To the coolest most amazing dad, and the one who’s always there for me, the one who’s always had my back, thank you and have a great one!!!"
Collin and Hannah have "no contact" with Kate, Jon previously claimed, after she placed him in a special needs facility for two years before Jon obtained custody in 2018.
Kate recently celebrated her 45th birthday and eldest daughter Mady shared a sweet of the celebration on Tik Tok with the caption: “When you can’t go to a restaurant for your moms birthday you bring the restaurant to her :)”
In the video, Kate smiled while overlooking a table full of food and a birthday cake.
However, she snubbed her father's big day; in 2016, Mady said in an interview with People: “He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane.
“He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.”
She added: “He doesn’t even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?”
Jon and Kate have been involved in a nasty court battle over their eight children since their divorce after 10 years of marriage in 2009.
The Sun exclusively revealed in March that Pennsylvania court papers showed that the lawyer for the children had begged the judge to allow the divided siblings to have visitation with each other during a court hearing on May 14, 2019.
The kids have their own lawyer, or a guardian ad litem, who is a representative of the court to make impartial decisions on the children’s behalf when there is a dispute between the mother and father.
After discussing the matter off the record, the judge admitted it was “real important” the parties “find peace somewhere there” and that it should be addressed “soon.”
In February, Jon said there is a “tumultuous” relationship between the kids that live with him and those that live with Kate during an interview on First Class Fatherhood.
He said of the children's relationship: "Right now, it's very tumultuous, pretty much, because there's no contact between Collin and his other siblings. There's contact between Hannah and the other siblings.
"So, the problem right now is we have parent alienation and we have sibling alienation.”
