Kate Major, the reporter who has allegedly started dating Jon Gosselin in the past week, has resigned from her position at Star Magazine, effective today.
"Star Magazine Senior Reporter Kate Major resigned this morning, Thursday, July 23, citing a conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin," reads a statement on Star's website.
Conflict of interest? That implies Star had credibility to begin with.
Jon Gosselin and Kate Major were first spotted Saturday at NYC restaurant Accademia di Vino, then made headlines this week when they had dinner in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan and Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin.
"I think it's authentic," Zarin told Us Weekly of Gosselin's relationship with Kate Major. "I think it's fast. I think it happened very quickly."
Gosselin has yet to confirm a romance with Major, but the news comes less than a week after Gosselin admitted he was dating Hailey Glassman, the stoner daughter of the surgeon who performed soon-to-be-ex-wife Kate's tummy tuck.
WHAT A PLAYER: Not only is Jon Gosselin apparently dating two chicks at the same time, he is still married to someone else! And has eight kids with her! Classy.
As if this story weren't hilarious and weird enough as it is, no one was more surprised to hear about Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend than Hailey Glassman herself.
"That's news to me," Glassman told People when she asked about the rumors that Kate Major, 26, is now an item with Jon Gosselin. Talk about awkward, People.
Us Weekly quotes Major as confirming the relationship, saying: "I didn't mean it to happen, it just did. I went to do a story on him and ended up falling for Jon."
Just a few days ago, Hailey Glassman, 22, was gushing about Jon: "This is perfect. It just fits," she said, possibly confusing him with her mouth and a bong.
Although Hailey knew that Jon and Kate Major were hanging out in the Hamptons together this week, she didn't realize the trip may have turned romantic.
"I still love Jon and Jon loves me," a teary Glassman said.
