Kate Gosselin is single again after getting dumped by her millionaire boyfriend, Jeff Prescott, and she is reportedly devastated over the breakup. The couple had been dating since last last year, but ET reports that the wealthy businessman left 40-year-old Kate for a much younger woman — a 26-year-old woman from the Republic of Belarus.
The “other woman” may not be the only factor in the breakup. ET‘s sources state that Gosselin was upset that Prescott didn’t spend enough time with her while he “traveled the world.” In his travels, he met his current girlfriend, a young woman who he has been spotted with in Las Vegas and Hawaii.
Prior to the breakup, Jeff reportedly backed out of an agreement to film an episode of Kate’s reality show, Kate Plus 8, at the last minute — a red flag that he wasn’t in the relationship for the long haul. His excuse was a valid one — he didn’t want his three children to have their lives exposed on a reality TV show.
“Prescott got cold feet about filming Gosselin’s reality show, Kate Plus 8. He ended up canceling production plans just two days before the New York City shoot… [he is] protective of his three children from a previous marriage and didn’t want the increased exposure, so his team advised him against filming with Gosselin.”
Prescott, 52, is the co-founder of Dreamstime, an online microstock photography agency based in Tennessee. According to the Heavy, he is divorced and the father of three children. His net worth is estimated to be around $30 million. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kate Gosselin net worth is $200,000 — a whole lot less than her ex-boyfriend.

Kate’s messy divorce from her then-husband and Jon & Kate Plus 8 co-star Jon Gosselin made headlines in 2009. TLC cancelled the show shortly after the split, but she continued to pursue reality show fame.
A registered nurse before she became a reality star, Kate went on to star in her own spinoff show, Kate Plus 8, appeared on ABC’s Dancing with Stars and Celebrity Wife Swap, and Celebrity Apprentice on NBC.
Kate’s twin daughters, Cara and Madelyn, will turn 15 in October. The sextuplets — Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel — are now 11-years-old.
It appears that Kate’s ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, is doing better in the dating department than his ex-wife. Us Weekly reports that Jon, who works as a disc jockey in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, is currently dating a registered nurse, Colleen Conrad.
