That's his story and he's sticking to it.
Another day, another complaint from Jon Gosselin. This time, he tells "Entertainment Tonight" that Kate is trying to ban him from Cara and Mady's birthday party.
"It's an all-out battle," Jon says. "She's trying to prevent me from seeing my kids on Mady and Cara's birthday. That's like giving her full custody by obeying her. She can't tell me what to do. I'm not going to allow it. I'm just going to stay. I own the house so I can do what I want."
Jon says he got the following e-mail from Kate: "Due to recent events, it will be too stressful to the kids to have both of us here as planned. I would like to split the evening so they can see us both."
Gosselin says, "She's trying to prevent me from seeing my kids on their birthday because she doesn't want to see me. She doesn't want to hear my apology. She doesn't want to work things out."
