Jon may have left Kate and custody of their eight may soon be up for debate, but Jon Gosselin is coming to Las Vegas to celebrate.

The “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” patriarch will host at Wet Republic on Aug. 29.

It is not clear which, if any, of his twentysomething-year-old girlfriends will be joining him at the MGM Grand pool.

Gosselin has been to Southampton with former Star magazine reporter Kate Major and vacationed in both the French Riviera at St. Tropez with Hailey Glassman since splitting from his 34-year-old wife.

Major, 26, resigned from Star last month as news of their tryst hit the tabloids.

While Gosselin previously told E! that Major “resigned from her job for me,” he was quoted last week in In Touch saying, “I have always been true to Hailey.”

Gosselin, 32, said he started seeing Glassman, 22, in May of this year after the two developed their friendship over the phone.

“She is the polar opposite of Kate,” he told In Touch.

The brunette is the daughter of the surgeon who performed a tummy tuck on Gosselin’s soon-to-be-ex-wife in 2006.

(Some math: 2009 minus 2006 = three; 22 minus three = 19; and 19 plus married man = mildly scandalous.)

“Many people think that everything moved too fast, that I was out partying too quickly,” Gosselin told In Touch.

Meanwhile, Gosselin told People that he is “just a regular guy who just wants to have friendship and good times” after the breakup.

He also said he expects to be officially single by the end of next month.

“The divorce will be finalized by September 30,” he told In Touch.

He and his soon-to-be-former spouse rose to fame after their reality show, which showcases the trials and tribulations of raising a house full of children in Pennsylvania, hit airwaves in 2007.

They have eight children together, 8-year-old twins Mady and Cara and five-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Collin, Leah, Hannah, Aaden and Joel.

Gosselin’s appearance at Wet Republic is being organized in conjunction with the upcoming clothing convention, MAGIC.

The Ed Hardy-loving father recently joined forces with Christian Audigier to create a line of children’s clothing.

Though details of Gosselin’s distinct brand of kidswear have, for the most part, been kept under wraps, the line is expected to appeal to parents who want their kids’ clothes to make a statement.

What that statement is, however, is up for interpretation.
