Kate Gosselin says her ex-husband and the father of her eight children, Jon Gosselin violated her rights in cooperating with a tell-all book which revealed shocking child abuse claims about her. Now she wants him jailed for it.
The tell-all book was published last fall, and since then the 37-year-old single mom has been trying to put together a lawsuit against Jon that would not only remove his visitation rights with his children but which could also potentially land him in jail!
Jon knows of the potential lawsuit but as yet he is not worried. Friends say he considers it all ‘ridiculous.’ Also, Kate has allegedly been shopping her lawsuit around to various law firms, but no one is interested in taking her on because she has no actual evidence to support her case.
Reporter Robert Hoffman has been friends with Jon for years, which is how he learned the alleged details of Kate’s private parenting techniques. Hoffman was an employee of the local newspaper near the Gosselins’ home and began working for ‘Us Weekly’ magazine covering the reality show couple in 2009 when he became good friends with Jon. He said that Kate kept detailed notes on her computer about using a wooden spoon to hit her children, yanking them around by their hair, and punishing them for transgressions as minor as trying to climb out of a crib or not adjusting to potty training quickly enough.
According to the insider, Kate is convinced that Jon gave author Hoffman the computer hard drive that had all her private journals on it and were used in the book, and she’s determined to find witnesses that will testify for her. You will recall that those journals allegedly contained details of how Kate how reality TV mom Kate Gosselin spanks her kids with a wooden spoon, yanks them around by the hair and punishes them for the smallest things.
“Kate is desperate to find witnesses who will take the stand and testify against Jon,” the insider revealed.
But apparently they don’t really want to be attached to the Gosselin name and in turn be dragged through the mud themselves.
The insider also questions Kate’s motives for the lawsuit, saying,
“It’s not like Kate just wants to sue Jon to make sure the book never goes public again, she wants to see Jon in jail! She’ll even use the kid card to try to get witnesses.”
