Kate has accused Jon of stealing the hard from her computer, and hacking into various files and email accounts that she had stored. However, Jon didn't stop there. He also tapped into her phone conversations, and he hacked into her bank account. Any incriminating things he found, he shared with the Robert, who put it in the book.
According to The Press Democrat, A. Jordan Rushie, Kate's lawyer, said, "Jon violated a federal anti-hacking statute in order to publish salacious, scandalous, and defamatory information about Kate. It’s damaged her reputation.”
The book, "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World" came out as an ebook in 2012. It was available for two days before they pulled it off the market.
Kate Plus 8 was cancelled on TLC in August 2011.
