Kate Gosselin Book Pulled By Amazon Amid Legal Threats

Robert Hoffman's Kate Gosselin book pulled

Kate Gosselin may be breathing a sigh of relief this morning after reports that the tell-all book alleging she is an abusive parent has been pulled by Amazon. Legal threats surrounding the vitriolic book written by Jon Gosselin’s buddy, Robert Hoffman, reportedly prompted its removal. Two top law firms became involved with blocking the book release, according to Radar Online.

The Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World e-book claims to include facts from journals the reality show star kept on her computer, Hollywood Life notes. In the book, Hoffman referred to Kate as sick and in dire need of mental health. Claims in the book are allegedly so potentially libelous that they were not republished in the Radar Online exclusive report about the pulling of the book by Amazon.

Robert Hoffman’s book about Gosselin and her parenting habits was on sale for about two days before attorneys from both Lavely & Singer and Williams & Connolly successfully lobbied for its removal. Although the Los Angeles and Washington DC attorney’s thwarted the release of the book, information that has already been released and rumors circulating on the internet, have undoubtedly already called Gosselin’s character into question.

A significant portion of the book was reportedly based on the Discovery network star’s own admissions in her private journals. Emails between Kate Gosselin and the television network and personal documents were reportedly reproduced in their entirety in Hoffman’s book.

Robert Hoffman had this to say about potential legal troubles surrounding the Gosselin book:

“I’ll be sued by one or more parties before this is over.”

The author also described his friendship with the star’s ex-husband Jon in the book and allegedly bragged about being in possession of approximately 5,000 family photos, tax and business records, and personal documents.

Amazon reportedly told Robert Hoffman that the book was removed until further investigation, because they were notified that it may not be properly authorized by the appropriate rights holder.

    I don't think Kate is "breathing a sigh of relief." I think her way of thinking and personality doesn't allow her to go there. She is a narcissist and a controlling woman who can't comprehend that she's done anything wrong. I'm sure she'll continue to go about her life as if nothing is happening and keep pursuing her 15 minutes…

    There were enough sales of the book that it doesn't matter if it was pulled or not. The whole world knows what this monster is really like now after reading the book.

    Unless you know Kate personally and have seen how she interacts with her children in private, you have no idea if she's a great mom. Just because you watch someone's life on a reality show, it does not mean that you know what they are really like.
