Kate Gosselin Sues Ex-Husband Jon Gosselin
Posted by Adam
KATE Gosselin is going postal on ex-husband Jon Gosselin.
The former reality star has filed a sensational multi-million dollar lawsuit against Jon, accusing him of wiretapping, computer hacking, identity theft and invasion of privacy.
Kate launched her legal action in the United States District Court of Pennsylvania on Monday, alleging Jon conspired with Robert Hoffman, author of Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, to illegally tap and access her bank accounts and computer without her authorization.
“After the couple was separated, Jon illegally hacked into Kate’s email account and her phone and bank accounts,” the suit alleges.
“Jon also stole a hard drive from Kate’s house, which contained private and confidential material. Jon the gave them the contents of Kate’s email account and the hard drive, all of which were acquired illegality, to his friend and business partner, tabloid reporter Robert Hoffman.
“Hoffman used the illegally acquired data to publish a defamatory book about Kate … the book was removed from large distributors like Amazon.com because the information was obtained illegally.
“Nevertheless, the damage was done with the release of the personal and private information and the defendants continue to possess this illegally obtained private information.”
In the filing, Kate said Hoffman falsely claimed that he recovered the data from her computer by digging through her trash that he found on the street.
“This demonstrates his knowledge that the materials were obtained illegally, as it is a sign of an attempt to cover up his unlawful activities,” the suit alleges.
“The materials in his possession could not possibly be physically found in paper format to that extend. If Hoffman was picking through trash on the street, he did not find this trove of personal information while engaging in his trash-picking endeavors.”
Kate alleged Jon and Hoffman used the stolen information and “distorted the facts to make stories more salacious for the tabloids.”
Kate recently admitted she has to be humble now that she’s not on TV!
The mother of eight admits she has to be more frugal now that she has no regular income.
Kate’s “I’m living very carefully these days,” Gosselin tells People in its latest issue.
Kate says she’s making ends meet “piecing and patching together” an income from a variety of projects.
“I made so many mistakes, of course,” she says, admitting that her own diva-like behavior may have led to her current unemployed state.
“It feels like a whole other lifetime ago,” she says.
“And sometimes I don’t even remember much of it. Both when the babies were first born and during the divorce, I was on survival mode.
“I feel like I’ve lived two lifetimes already. I’m not the same person I was … I don’t even recognize her.”
