Kate Gosselin sues ex over book; alleges hacking
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — TV celebrity Kate Gosselin has filed a lawsuit accusing her ex-husband Jon of stealing her hard drive and hacking into her phone and computer to get material for a tell-all book.
The federal lawsuit says he took the material and hacked into her bank accounts for a book called “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.”
The suit, filed today, says the book was written by her ex-husband’s friend, tabloid writer Robert Hoffman, but has since been pulled from Amazon because the material was obtained illegally.
The couple starred in the reality TV show “Jon & Kate plus 8,” detailing life with their twins and sextuplets, before they separated in 2009 and later divorced.
She lives in Sinking Spring, Berks County, Pa., while he lives in Wyomissing, Pa.
