‘Jon & Kate Plus 8′ Dad’s Affair Confirmed

Betsy Waldman / May 6, 2009

After many rumors and some photographic evidence that was hard to deny, it’s been confirmed that Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad Jon Gosselin has been having an affair with Deanna Hummel.

In the new issue of Us Weekly, five people close to the situation share their story in hopes to set the record straight. Deanna’s older brother and roommate Jason claims he just wants to protect his younger sister. He shares, “She’s a nice girl, not a homewrecker. He is a bad liar. This isn’t healthy for her. But she is refusing to help herself, so here I am trying to help her myself. I hope this clears the air.”

Jon, 32, met Deanna, a third grade school teacher, while at the Chill Lounge in Reading, Pennsylvania in mid-January. After sending each other $3 shots (classy), the two began having a sexual relationship. 

Jon would come over to Deanna’s house, where, Jason says, they would ”pretty much stay locked away like two teenagers. It was weird. He’s a grown man. 

He added, “A lot of the time, it was pretty, um, gross listening to her, you know, um — how do I say this? The walls are thin. Let’s just say that. I mean, no one wants to hear his sister having sex, let alone with a married dude who’s, like, almost twice her age and who has eight kids and a maybe-crazy wife. Ick. Nast.”

Jon and his wife Kate have been married since 1999, and are the subject of the popular reality show about their life raising their twin girls and sextuplets.
