<p><span></span>Brian Sep, a friend of reality-TV-star <strong>Jon Gosselin</strong>'s for more than 15 years, confirms to <em>Life & Style</em> that Jon and his wife, <strong>Kate</strong>, have already begun living separate lives. </p>
"Jon is planning on living and working in New York during the week and staying home with the kids on Friday, Saturday and Sunday while Kate is away," says Sep. "Jon hasn't said anything about getting divorced."
Even though Jon and Kate will be living apart, both parents want to be there for their eight children.
"Jon really seems like he's back to his old self," says Sep, who plans to visit his pal in New York City. "Whatever decision has been made, Jon seems to be at peace with it and in a good place. He doesn't know where Kate is when he's gone [but] I think that's okay with him."
Jon and Kate are expected to make a major announcement on tonight's installment of Jon and Kate Plus 8.
