Jon Gosselin’s apartment is burglarized -- and we feel kinda bad for him

Jon Gosselin returned home to his Manhattan apartment Saturday afternoon after spending Christmas in Pennsylvania with his eight kids only to discover the place had been ransacked, People reports.

~~ Shoot, the Ministry returned home Saturday to a serious mess, and we *thought* the place had been ransacked, until we realized we had been just *that* much of a tornado wrapping gifts before leaving for Christmas Eve at the folks’ place. Embarrassing. ~~


Seriously, though -- normally we have little or no sympathy for Jon minus Kate plus eight, but in this case, we do. His furniture, clothing and bedding had been slashed with a knife. Electronics and more had been stolen, and stuff was broken -- stuff that included a Ming vase, which, sorry, we totally didn’t expect Jon Gosselin to own.

Not cool, no matter who you are or what you’ve done -- even if what you’ve done is reality TV.

Someone involved apparently thought it would be cute to leave a behind note signed ‘Hailey Glassman,’ TMZ reports. Oh yeah, the note was reportedly spiked onto Jon’s bedroom dresser with a butcher knife.

Stay classy, creepy unoriginal burglary people ...

The apartment is listed under Gosselin and former girlfriend Glassman’s names, TMZ said. What, like, in the phone book? On the front door? Whatevs. We live in L.A., not Manhattan. Nobody’s listed here at all, so pardon the confusion. Oh, yeah, RadarOnline said Hailey -- who has called in her lawyer -- had moved out of the place they’d shared and recently claimed Jon had pocketed her money and not paid the rent.

Of course, anyone who watches ‘CSI’ -- even ‘CSI: Miami’ -- knows that a butcher-knifed note with Jon’s ex-girlfriend’s name on it does not mean Jon’s ex-girlfriend had anything to do with anything.

Hang in there, Jon. Burglary can really mess with your head, and even Ed Hardy spokesmen don’t deserve that. We hope you paid the rent. We hope nobody you know messed up your place.

We’d actually hoped we wouldn’t be writing about you anymore, but ...

Ed Hardy bad. Burglary worse.

Sorry, dude.
