    We’ve heard of tangled webs, but this is getting ridiculous.

    Father of eight Jon Gosselin is embroiled in a “he-said she-said battle” with girlfriend Hailey Glassman and Octo-mom Nadya Suleman.

    Hailey says he has emotionally abused her, and Nadya says he was talking about teaming with her for a new reality show.

    Only one of these statements is true – and according to a source close to Gosselin, it isn’t Hailey’s.

    A close confidante to Jon Gosselin tells Fox411 that last week’s taped confession by Hailey on “The Insider” was all designed for TV by Jon himself.

    “Jon actually made the decision to have Hailey go on air and bad mouth him,” says the insider. “Jon and Hailey get paid for their appearances on these shows and they need the money. It was easy for Hailey to conjure tears, their lives are less than stellar right now, but Jon hasn’t abused [her].”

    So why go on TV and say that he did?

    “They agreed to have her go on and make the abuse allegations!” our shocked source says. “Jon doesn’t have much money left and he is not currently searching for a real job. Jon still seeks money through his fame and notoriety. He really wants a reality show of his own, and he is stretching out every moment of the drama for a dollar.”

    Which means Hailey’s abuse allegation was just a “Balloon Boy” type stunt to attract reality-TV producer attention.

    However, the other rumor of the week, that Jon would be involved with Octomom, was true, even though he denied it, says the source.

    Jon released a statement on Thursday night denying he even heard about a reality show with Nadya Suleman. But emails seen by Fox411 and RadarOnline.com show Gosselin was contemplating the show and hoping to get close to a million dollars for a slew of fake dates with Octomom.

    “His whole team heard of the project and was involved in brokering the possible deal,” the confidante tells Fox411. “His managers, lawyers and publicists need to get something rolling for him or he won’t be able to pay them. Jon doesn’t have a big bank account loaded with money. He has to do something and this would have been funny, plus Hailey had no problem going along with the fake dates and pretending to be upset. She is along for the ride and enjoys being on TV.”

    The insider says Jon is still using excuses to explain his bad behavior and the poor example he’s setting for his children.

    “Jon still believes he got married too young and had too many children that he wasn’t ready for – that’s what has led to the demise of his relationship and the TV show,” says the source. “Kate doesn’t even talk to him. She leads a totally separate life, and their schedules are worked out far in advance to completely avoid each other.”

    Meanwhile, Jon Gosselin went public Sunday begging Kate for forgiveness, and Hailey Glassman Tweeted her followers that she and Gosselin are now kaput.

    Just more grist for the rumor mill?
