"I never said I was going to do a line with Jon Gosselin. I don't want to do a line with Jon Gosselin."
The designer simply says he knew of Jon from TV, knew he was wearing a lot of Ed Hardy clothes, and heard he was looking for a job.
"I just invite him because I see him on the Jon & Kate show asking for job. So I was curious to see what he was asking people for which kind of job."
Christian did say that Jon is very interested in his motorcycles -- and that maybe there would be some sort of deal there in the future.
"He is really into bikes, so he want to do something around bikes so he can be the spokesperson for one of my brands on bikes."
As for Jon's trip to St. Tropez to meet Christian, Ed Hardy's main man said he thought Jon's girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, was on the payroll.
"He told me he was coming with his stylist. It appeared his stylist was Hailey. A week after, I discovered those two guys were together. I didn't even know that Jon and Kate were not together."
On the other hand, Christian says that he was very interested in going into business with Michael Jackson -- which obviously isn't going to happen now.
"I invited him to my birthday," he said of MJ. "And he showed up. It was his last public appearance. He was testing [the public mood about him] at my party. So we became friends. He told me one day he would like to collaborate with me on a collection."
That's right -- Michael Jackson, yes -- Jon Gosselin, NO!
That really shouldn't hurt Jon's feelings -- but this should.
