Kate is accusing Jon and his partner, tabloid reporter, Robert Hoffman, of wiretapping, computer hacking, identity theft, and invasion of privacy.
“After the couple separated, Jon illegally hacked into Kate’s email account and her phone and bank accounts,” the lawsuit alleges.
Kate Gosselin also claims that “Jon 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 freest 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.”
It seems that Jon Gosselin was trying to profit from making Kate look bad in the media. However, Kate Gosselin won’t go down without a fight, and likely plans to milk this lawsuit for all it’s worth.
