Jon Gosselin Planted Kate Gosselin-Steve Neild Rumors

by at . Comments

Having already gone public with new girlfriend Hailey Glassman just weeks after separating from his wife, Jon Gosselin is not the most popular guy right now.

This story is not likely to help his cause.

According to Radar Online, Jon intentionally started the rumors that his now-estranged wife Kate Gosselin was having an affair with her bodyguard Steve Neild.

“Jon wanted a divorce from Kate and he also wanted to throw attention away from himself, so he spread that rumor,” a source close to the couple said.

“Jon doesn’t like Steve Neild so he didn’t care about the repercussions.”

Kate Gosselin ended being the one who filed for divorce on June 22.

“She didn’t want to. In fact, on the day the papers went in, Kate was with her attorney crying and sobbing. She was very upset,” the source added. “Kate did not want the divorce. She did it because she felt she had to protect herself.”

Steve Neild, who is married, hasn’t been seen with Kate for several weeks, although Radar reports he is still a “consultant” on the family’s security issues.

Kate Gosselin has recently been travelling with another bodyguard, including during her business trip to California last week. Speculation is rampant that Kate is now pursuing several options to further her career as a TV personality and author.

New episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 are scheduled to return August 3. Hopefully we'll see Kate and her backwards mullet in action on the dating scene.

This is last week's news. BFG is right - Kate ended the marriage first. Jon mentioned to Jodi and Kevin Krieder that he thought Kate was having an affair with Steve Nield. Sorry Hollywood Gossip but you may have been the victim of Kate's PR machine. There is also a rumor that Hailey Glassman is pregnant. I wonder who started THAT rumor...It was most likely Kate's PR team.

What source? Kate? Radar Online also reported that Kate went to Jon last year and said the marriage was over and that Jon could see other people if he kept filming. Should we believe that too?
