Life isn’t all glitter and gold for reality stars, especially former ones such as Jon Gosselin of the former television show “Jon and Kate Plus 8”.

The divorcee and father to 8 is reportedly now working as a waiter to make ends meet, however his fall from fame hasn’t stopped the press and others from trying to get a piece of the former star.

Recently, Gosselin was faced with a trespassing paparazzi photographer on his rural Pennsylvania property.

Reportedly unable to get the woman to leave, Gosselin drew a handgun (he is a licensed concealed carrier), and fired a shot away from the trespasser in an effort to get her off of his property.

According to TMZ the photographer plans on filing a police report.

However, according to statements made to E! News, police will not be investigating the matter as Gosselin was on his own property when the incident occurred and there are no ordinances in the rural area preventing the discharge of a firearm for any reason.

Gosselin made the following statement to TMZ in response to the incident.

“I am licensed to carry a concealed handgun, which I withdrew and used to fire a warning shot AWAY from the paparazza” Jon says, adding, “It is well within my rights under Pennsylvania law when someone is trespassing on private property.”
