Kate Gosselin is sure having a rough couple of weeks. Nearly two weeks ago, the former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and Dancing With The Stars was accused of child abuse, and now, she is being accused of beating the family pets as well!
Okay, so let’s get this straight – Kate Gosselin has gone from loving mother of eight to child abuser and pet beater? That’s right, or at least according the same journalist who accused her of cruel disciplining. “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,” Robert Hoffman alleges to Star Magazine.
But leaving the animals starving and living in filth was only part of the pet abuse, as Hoffman says she also beat the dogs. “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,” he continued.
So, why get the dogs if she really did not want them? It was all for the sake of ratings, apparently. Hoffman went on to add: “The kids had been begging for pets for years but Kate was adamantly against it, until the show needed content for an episode.” Once the cameras stopped rolling, the abuse began. Sick, just sick.
