“The school would never use that word,” Gosselin, 35, tells PEOPLE. “[Collin and Alexis] were not expelled. [The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now.”
Whatever was happening, it must’ve been pretty bad for them to require private tutoring at home. So what was going on?
“They’ve been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy,” she says. “I could see that they’re the ones struggling the most. [Collin] was upset and saying things out of frustration – he’d crumple his papers and throw them on the floor,” she says. “Alexis was angry in a different way. She didn’t want to sit still. She’d get up and want to run around.”
The kids reportedly are seeing a therapist. Kate says she’s just focused on being a good mom.
“I’ve kept the stability, the income – everything that they know and love – “I’ve come through on that,” she says. “I am doing what my kids need me to do. That’s really all that matters.”
Hopefully this means those rumors of Kate being broke are false! I have to admit, I can’t IMAGINE having to deal with things so personal in the public eye. Even kids aren’t off-limits anymore.
