Kate Gosselin Hard Drive Battle: Jon Accused Of Supplying Author With Private Journals
Kate Gosselin’s computer journals are generating more drama for the realty star baby momma. A Radar Online source claims that Robert Hoffman did not get his information from a computer file the woman threw in the trash, but from hard drives offered by her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin.
The controversial Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World book was pulled by Amazon after two days of sales, amid a legal challenge by Kate’s attorneys, the Huffington Post notes. According to the Radar Online source, Jon devised a scheme to save the journals of his then-wife and gave them to his pal Hoffman..
The source offered this startling twist in the Gosselin scandal:
“Jon made copies of Kate’s hard drive and gave them to Rob as a sort of backup plan in case there was anything he needed in there while there were going through their divorce.”
While the claim is plausible, if Kate’s computer journals truly contained admissions about actions which some consider child abuse, it is somewhat illogical that Jon did not expose them when haggling over custody and child support. On the other hand, perhaps Jon did use his soon-to-be-ex-wife’s journals as leverage for the agreement the former couple signed. Only the reality show parents, and maybe Hoffman, will ever know what really transpired.
Robert Hoffman had this to say about the computer journal:
“Regarding Jon, as stated clearly in the book, he had absolutely nothing to do with personally giving me any information whatsoever for the book. The other 90 percent of the material I possess will not be published, ever, but you can be sure that if I’m falsely accused of anything and drug into court, or called a liar by Kate Gosselin or her lawyers, this information will come out then, including photographs.”
Jon Gosselin has not made a public statement about either the book or the child abuse claims levied against his ex-wife.
