More Marital Woes for the John & Kate Plus 8 Clan

By: Celebuzz / May 13, 2009

And the drama continues in the marriage of reality-TV mega-breeders Kate and Jon Gosselin.

Us Magazine reports that Jon—who himself has recently been accused of fooling around on his wife with 23-year-old schoolteacher Deanna Hummel—suspects his spouse Kate of having an affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild.

A source tells the magazine that Neild—who is himself married—and Gosselin were “very physical, often touching each other” at a recent promotional event for Jon & Kate Plus 8. “She was gently poking him, giving him little love pats, totally unlike the slapping she does with Jon. She and Steve were joking around so much, I actually wondered if they were having an affair. There’s a lot of open affection between them.”

Kate and Neild’s growing closeness, in fact, sparked Jon to consider hiring a snoop  to spy on the two. “He threatened to hire a private investigator,” an insider reveals.

Meanwhile, it appears that Gosselin’s rumored affair with Hummel may be more serious than thought.

Moles are popping out of the woodwork to report that the two have been running around all over town in recent months. According to various sources, the two dined together in mid-March at the local Ruby Tuesday’s and were, says a waitress, acting “romantic and lovey-dovey.” Jon also reportedly attended the Spring Gruv festival in Park City, Utah, with Hummel and a gal-pal while Kate was away.

Perhaps most damning of all, on April 17—just one day before Jon and Hummel were caught leaving a club at 2 a.m.—the pair were captured on cell-phone cameras, getting “all over each other” while watching a band perform at a bar in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Gulp!
