Kate Gosselin is fuming over the fact that the tell-all book about her evil behavior towards the kids was partially written by ex-husband Jon Gosselin. The former reality star is said to be livid that Jon would be so cruel and make up lies about her just to make money from it; no word on how much he was actually paid but it was definitely between $50-100,000, reports claim.
Kate is said to be in talks on hiring a lawyer who will take on her case and make sure that her ex pays for damaging her reputation – though it was never really positive to begin with. But finding a good lawyer to represent you is harder than it looks, especially when you don’t have any evidence that Jon was part of the whole tell-all book scandal. There are also no witnesses who ever saw Jon give detailed information to someone about his relationship to Kate, nor did anyone ever think anything suspicious was going on.
“Jon was notified recently of Kate’s intentions to file a lawsuit against him, but the whole thing is ridiculous,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline. “Kate has been shopping her lawsuit around to various law firms, but no one is interested because she has no actual evidence to support her case!”
Kate believes that a journal she had kept throughout the years was stolen by her ex who passed it ver to best-selling author, Robert Hoffman who put it to good use; publicly detailing every single thing Kate had ever written in it, along with some made up stuff about Kate’s crazy behavior towards their kids. But while Jon may think he has hit the jackpot with this, Gosselin is threatening him to seek full-custody, seeing that his partake in this can make a judge quickly reconsider the chances of having Jon get anywhere near the children.
“Kate is desperate to find witnesses who will take the stand and testify against Jon,” the family insider reveals. “But so far she’s having no luck. Anyone Kate Gosselin has approached is hesitant because they don’t really want to be attached to her name and dragged through the mud themselves.”
