Kate Gosselin is making headlines this week due to a story that claims that she was investigated by child protective services for the alleged mistreatment of one of her children. According to Radar Online, a source called authorities after claiming to see Kate abuse her 10-year-old son, Collin. The report states that Kate was quite mean to Collin, and that the other children would cry to their dad, Jon Gosselin, about how their mom treated their brother.
“Someone called and told them that Kate had been both physically and psychologically abusive to one of her sextuplets, Collin… [Kate] seems to single him out.”
The Kate Gosselin drama doesn’t seem to end. The reality star has been in the news plenty of times because of the way that she allegedly treats her kids, and many believe that these stories are over-embellished in order to award someone with a nice payday. Rumors that Kate has “abused” her children have been around for quite some time. The gossip started right after Kate and Jon Gosselin divorced, and chatter seems to creep up every time Kate is having some kind of success. Whether she was on Dancing With The Stars or Celebrity Apprentice, the negativity seems to come out at just the “right” time.
Back in June, Mail Online reported that Kate was running a “house of horrors.” Unnamed sources claimed that she was rough with her children, and that she would mistreat her dogs.
Kate Gosselin has done a pretty fine job at letting these stories roll off her back. Chances are, she wouldn’t have a reality show on TLC if there was any real concern for the well-being of her children. The network has been very clear about what they allow, and what they stand for, which is why Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled after June Shannon’s relationship with a registered sex offender came to light.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kate and her ex, Jon, had quite a nasty split. In fact, the two barely speak to each other at this point. Some believe that Jon is the one behind these negative stories.
“I don’t have [a relationship with Jon anymore]. I give the kids… some of the kids visit and some don’t and I keep the peace. That’s what I’ve always done. It’s best for the kids. I wish that things were better for the kids. It’s very clear by now that I’m just trying to preserve what relationship he has with them. I do think it’s best for them, but, you know, divorce is hard, period. But it’s really difficult when one parent is in the sabotaging mode. That’s been difficult”
Do you believe the Kate Gosselin rumors? Do you think that she abuses her children in any way?
