"I know my mother was going through a lot of things. I mean, a divorce, and plenty of different things that can't be easy to go through," Collin said. "And, you know, I want to think that she needed someone to take out her anger and frustration on, and it was just kind of me. I was in the way and I was there. So, she chose me."

Kate and Jon divorced back in 2010 and one of the sextuplets, Hannah Gosselin, went to live with her dad. Then in 2018, Jon obtained custody of Collin after he was put into an out-of-home institution by Kate. In 2016, she told People that her son had "educational and social challenges" that impacted their "entire family."

"I'm not going to say I was a perfect child. But I'd say my misbehaving was no different than from my siblings," Collin continued in the video.

Hannah was also featured in the footage, where she discussed Collin's tough childhood.

"He would be separated from us," she stated. "Like, he would not get to come and play outside with us. He would eat dinner at different times than us."

"I don't think effort was made in the home to help him learn what behavior is acceptable and what behavior is not acceptable," she added.

Last year, Collin told Entertainment Tonight that after he moved in with his dad he and Kate "didn't have a relationship."

"Even before then, I don't think we had much of a relationship," he expressed, "and I think that just kept tearing it even more down so."

Collin then explained that he believed the family's time on Jon & Kate Plus 8 and Kate Plus 8 "tore us apart."

"It gave us less time to actually be together as a family, [and] more time to be in the public eye," he said at the time.

VICE TV reported on Collin's comments.
