A bar bouncer and a couple of friends have already spoken out in defense of Jon Gosselin, saying the reality star and father of eight does not cheat on his wife.

Now, the woman at the heart of these allegations has revealed herself. Deanna Hummel told People that she and Gosselin are mere acquaintances.

“We’re just friends,” Hummel said. “It’s absurd that anyone would think otherwise.”

The Hollywood Gossip

The 23-year old says she met Gosselin through a couple of months ago through a shared pal. Since then, her and Jon have only spent time together in groups, never partaking in any romantic actions or conversations.

“We just talk and socialize, the normal things you do when you see friends,” she said.

Deanna Hummel confirms that Jon Gosselin only has eyes for one (obnoxious) woman.

Did she party with Gosselin at Legends Bar in Reading, Pennsylvania a couple weeks ago? Yes, but the photos and the night out were misinterpreted by the press.

“He just got this new car and I wanted to drive it. I’m into cars,” she said. “We all have guy and girl friends. Because of who he is, it gets portrayed the wrong way, and it’s unfair to him and his family.”

Hummel does her best to laugh off the rumors and accusations, but, in the end, she finds nothing humorous about being linked to a married man.

“He’s a very nice guy, don’t get me wrong. But he’s married with eight children… [Jon] has a great family life. I would never ever think to pursue anything.”
