Ex-reality TV dad Jon Gosselin, whose booze-fueled nights out on the town are well-documented, confessed his maturity level has plunged in recent months.
"I went from 32 to 23," he said. "My therapist has told me that. My therapist told me I went from 32 to 23."
In a segment taped for "The Insider" set to air Thursday, Gosselin admitted he's going through a wild phase and said he's trying to do what's best for his kids by halting production of the TLC reality show that would focus on them.
"I don't care if [my kids] hate me, because I know what is best for my kids," he said. "I will pull them off [the show]."
He and Kate were due in court this morning over the $230,000 Jon allegedly took out of their joint account but the hearing was delayed until next week because the judge's wife died, according to gossip site TMZ.com.
The father of eight was spotted throughout the summer sipping suds with a bevy of blondes and is now dating 22-year-old Hailey Glassman, the daughter of soon-to-be-ex wife Kate's tummy tuck surgeon. He confessed he's going through a rebellious phase.
"I think you're defeated," she fumed. "You need to pull yourself up from your bootstraps and get back to your kids an get your crap together. You need to pull it together."
"It looks like you went through a rebellious phase," she said.
