Author Claims Kate Gosselin Abused Family Pets

Another rumor about Kate Gosselin surfaced on the internet today. Robert Hoffman, the author of a new book about the reality star, claims that Gosselin used to abuse her family pets.

Hoffman claimed last month that Gosselin used to beat her children with a wooden spoon.

Hoffman said:

“Kate left the family dogs in their cages behind the house for hours on end with no food. She never cleaned the cages. Jon would return to find them filled with urine, poop and puke. I saw vomit in them.”

The abuse, unfortunately, gets much worse.

Hoffman said:

“She would knock them over the head and yell. The abuse caused Nala to become very resistant to Kate, so that any time she came around, Nala growled. After a while, Kate began to fear she’d be attacked, so she sent the dog back to the breeder.”

According to Hoffman, Kate Gosselin never wanted to get a family pet. The reality show mother told her children repeatedly that they couldn’t have a pet but eventually caved when the show needed more content.

Hoffman added:

“The kids had been begging for pets for years but Kate was adamantly against it, until the show needed content for an episode.”

Do you think Kate Gosselin beat her children? Do you think she was abusive to animals?

Gosselin hasn’t commented on either rumor yet. According to Radar Online, her lawyers have told her not to comment on Hoffman’s tell-all book. The book hit Amazon at the end of September but was pulled after a few days due to legal threats.
