Steve Neild recently ditched his job as Kate Gosselin’s bodyguard in hopes of scoring a more lucrative gig. Although earlier Facebook gossip suggested that this job change caused a rift between the pair, these rumors are still unsubstantiated. In fact, Kate and Steve appeared to be closer than ever the other day, when they were spotted together at a One Direction concert.
When Steve Neild decided to stop working for Kate Gosselin, the reality star’s haters assumed that she’d driven the bodyguard away with her controlling behavior. But in spite of rumors of a falling out between the two, they are still spending plenty of time together. Now, however, the relationship has extended beyond that of a boss and her employee — several fans suspect that Kate and Steve are dating!
It certainly looked a lot like a date the other day, when Kate and Steve met up for a One Direction concert. Although they weren’t holding hands or showing other forms of PDA, the two certainly appeared to be enjoying their time together. The Twitter community was quick to jump to conclusions, automatically pointing to Kate and Steve as lovers. However, Kate’s dedicated fans were quick to defend their favorite celebrity. They highlighted the innocent nature of the outing, maintaining that, since Steve is evidently a more reliable father figure than Jon Gosselin, he was probably at the One Direction concert for the sake of the Gosselin kids.
