Did Jon Steal Kate Gosselin’s Hard Drive For Tell-All Book?

October 05, 2012 09:00 AM by Gina Hall

We all have our dirty little secrets, but they’re not usually just splashed across Facebook, not the subject of a tell-all book. Did Jon Gosselin steal a hard drive to give to author of a new tell-all book about Kate Gosslin and the “Kate Plus 8” clan? Is that why it was pulled from Amazon?

According to “The Hollywood Gossip,” two law firms claim that the new book about Kate Gosselin was pulled from Amazon due to violation of trade secrets and copyright law.

The author, Robert Hoffman, claims that he pulled a hard drive out of Kate Gosselin’s trash and that was the source material for the book. But the lawyers are crying foul.

“Jon made copies of her hard drive and gave them to Rob as a backup plan in case there was anything he needed while they were going through their divorce,” a source told “Radar Online”

But Hoffman fired back about his book, “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World.”

“Regarding Jon Gosselin,” said Hoffman, “as stated clearly in the book, he had absolutely nothing to do with personally giving me any information whatsoever for the book.”

In the book, Hoffman alleges that Kate Gosselin was violent with her children and that Child Protective Services were called on her twice.

“The other 90 percent of the material that I possess will not be published, ever,” Hoffman said. “But you can be sure that if I’m falsely accused of anything and drug [sic] into court, or called a liar by Kate Gosselin or her lawyers, this information will come out then, including photographs. I also have physical and photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book.”

“There is so much more to this that hasn’t been revealed,” Hoffman threatened.

Sounds like some legal drama coming Kate Gosselin’s way. Anyone up for “Kate: Plus 12 Angry Men?”

    maybe we can start a fund for kate and her family and the jersey shore cast to buy a flight to nowhere and enough $ for them to stay there.
    any left funds can be used to repair the image of americans overseas caused by shows.
    maybe we can send the people who watched the shows with them.

    All I have to say is: I feel sorry for all the children involved! They truly deserve better more mature parents! Grow up Kate and Jon before the kids show you how!

    An incident from the book that would break your heart is when Aaden was potty training. He had an accident on the floor. She cleaned him up, then beat him with the spoon because, in her diary she said he should be doing better than that after five days. Kate always cries for herself and “how hard her life is”. Someone needs to cry for those kids and get them out of that million dollar House of Horrors. Pennsylvania CPS–where are you????

    This book appears to be filled with the same stuff we all heard about a few years back. It feels as though Mr. Hoffman is either broke, and needs money in a bad way, or seriously obsessed with Kate + 8. This book is in no way protecting those kids. It will hurt them tremendously in the long run. Imagine having such horrible things written about your mother and you and your siblings! He will do every bit as much damage as he claims Kate has already done! He is a greedy, selfish man.

    I just feel sorry for the Gosselin 8 because they are the victims in this whole fiasco. I’m so sick of Kate crying crock tears to the world to feel sorry for her and how hard life is. I feel for the Gosselin 8 who’s potentially trap in that mausoleum you call a house. One day the Gosselin 8 will open us about everything that went on in that mausoleum and that in itself will seal Kate and Jon fate. What goes around, comes around, What you sow, so shall you reap, no one in this world can get away with so much like Kate has and there is a end of a line coming towards her way which only the LORD know about, her time is coming when you’ve done so many so wrong throughout the years and there a stopping point in the mist. Have your fun Kate exploiting your kids, treating people like dirt, grifting for freebies without working and earning it, and the so called mom you are.
