The Gosselins Slam Tabloid Reports
Jon and Kate Gosselin – the stars of TLC’s top-rated Jon and Kate Plus Eight – open up to EW about the recent tabloid coverage that alleged the 32-year-old father had an affair with 23-year-old third grade school teacher Deanna Hummel.
When asked what they thought of the story and photo, Jon said, “It’s really upsetting. I may be guilty of choosing the wrong time and place to hang out with my friends, but I am not guilty of cheating on my wife. It hurts me to see what it’s done to my family, and it’s scary to know that these tabloids are in town constantly following us and even paying locals large amounts of money to contribute to these negative stories. It’s even gotten so bad that [one tabloid] has reached out to a youth pastor from our church, which in my eyes is completely unacceptable.”
Kate added, “It’s disturbing and unfortunate that these tabloids have gone as far as they have to try and bring us down. Jon’s poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us.”
However, this interview took place before the latest story broke of Deanna’s older brother Jason confirming the affair.
