"There was so much angst between Kate and I and my kids are pleasers, they wanted to please their mom," he explained in a past interview. "I always wanted to talk to all of my kids, but I didn't want to put them in an awkward position because Kate didn't want them talking to me."

"I didn't do parental alienation on my side, but she definitely did on her side, but now they are adults they may not be influenced as much by her, and management and all those things," he added at the time.

Despite the difficulties, Jon claimed he "will never give up trying to talk to my children," noting that "the door is always open to rekindle any kind of relationship."
