Designer denies kids' clothing line with 'Jon & Kate' star Jon Gosselin

Jon Gosselin apparently isn't on his way to designing a new line of pint-size clothing after all.
Although he was quoted as saying otherwise in earlier reports, Ed Hardy fashion designer Christian Audigier is now denying he is working on a new children's clothing line with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 patriarch.
"Christian is absolutely not starting a kids' clothing line with Jon," a rep for Audigier toldUs Weekly in a Monday evening report. "As of right now, there is no clothing line in the works between them at all."
Gosselin and his new girlfriend -- 22-year-old Hailey Glassman -- spent the weekend in the French Riviera, and Gosselin met with Audigier on Sunday night to discuss the business partnership, according to E! News.
"We would like to do a line of children's clothing," Audigier told E! News.
In addition, Audigier told People in a Monday report that Gosselin would be a good business partner in helping to design the new line.
"He's huge," Audigier told People about Gosselin. "Everyone knows this family. And everyone will know our clothes. They'll be fun, easy clothes for kids."
Gosselin also previously told People that he, Glassman and Audigier would all have "input" in the new line.
Gosselin was spotted holding hands with Glassman in St. Tropez in the French Riviera on Saturday, and the pair also took a trip on Audigier's yacht. Audigier told E! News that he was "taking care" of Gosselin and Glassman and added the couple are "having fun."
