More Marital Woes for the John & Kate Plus 8 Clan

More Marital Woes for the John & Kate Plus 8 Clan-photo

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.

    My heart goes out to this family who has been divided by the that old deciever, Satan himself. I did so love to watch their show because we could relate so well, but when it turned ugly I stopped watching. These kids deserve a forever familly, one that is committed to each other for better or worse.

    I am happy for him. She treats him like a DOG! From the beginning of this show when I saw her barking orders at him and treating him like a child, I sadi he should walk away from her. She is more worried about fame and money than her own family! Good for you Jon. I am sad for the kids, but you can't stay in a marriage for kids, sometimes it is better to walk away!

    I feel terrible for the children. Of course they have to know what is going on. The adults in this family need to step up and make a decision on what is best for the family. Enough of the infidelity gossip. Those poor kids.....

  • Katie

    I think this is all ridiculous! Here you take something as serious as a family and turn it into a big show and game. There are 8 kids in the middle of these immature adults who can't be responsible enough to just be honest and take care of what they chosen to get themselves into! 8 kids will be effected from Jon and Kate's very selfish decisions! They have just ruined thier family. They have just ruined their children's lives by making go through all of this stupid and immature drama. Get a grip people! Grow up!

    I love to watch your show. I love that you are such a close knit family. Yes, Kate can be demanding and a little neurotic some times like all mom's that have children - and she has 8 and has to keep everything organized, plus work in a television show - she is an amazing woman!!! Jon is also an amazing guy - and I want them to know that since they are Godly and inspirational to so many people - the Enemy is coming against them with all these allegations - the Enemy comes to "Steal, Kill and Destroy" all the blessings that God has bestowed upon you. I hope Jon and Kate - that you Cloack yourselves with the armor of God and fight against the Enemy. Don't let him in don't allow strife among the two of you - because then you will be defeated. Don't let him in!!! No matter how hard he comes against you and your family. Stay grounded in his word of God! With God you can defeat all enemies Nancy Charlotte, NC - Pslam 91

    I feel horrible that they are getting seperated. Ive watched them since the beginning. I wasnt surprised to hear that Jon was having an affair since he was so worried about the cameras and everyone following him around, i knew there was a reason for that comment on there last episode. Why would anyone be bothered by the fame unless they were doing something wrong and didnt want to be caught.
