July 22, 2009 — -- Jon Gosselin just can't keep it on the down low.

Barely a month after he and Kate Gosselin announced their divorce, he's transformed from Mr. Mom to man about town so swiftly and so publicly, it's hard to believe the dude with the 22-year-old girlfriend and tight-fitting Ed Hardy t-shirts is the same dad who used to court audience sympathy on "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

Since Jon, 32, started dating Hailey Glassman, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed a tummy tuck on his ex-wife, the two have been spotted cavorting on a yacht in St. Tropez and kicking their feet up on a swing set in New York City. They kiss, they cuddle, they stare longingly into each other's eyes, and indulge in other PDA as the paparazzi snap away.

But while Jon and Glassman may be reveling in their new romance, it appears fans might not be. According to unscientific user surveys conducted by, many of those who used to sympathize with Jon -- the man famously berated by his other half for breathing loudly -- now bat for Team Kate.

On June 22, when the Gosselins dropped their divorce bomb, 62 percent of more than 102,000 readers said they sided with Jon. Asked who they supported on July 17, 58 percent of more than 54,000 readers who responded said they sided with Kate.
