Brother of Kate Gosselin Launches Child Labor Crusade, Says Producers Manipulated Kids

by at .

Jon and Kate Gosselin might actually form a united front for once, considering the allegations made by Kevin Kreider ... Kate's own brother.

At a Philadelphia hearing on child labor laws and reality TV shows, dude just said that Jon & Kate Plus 8 made the eight pay a heavy price.

As in they suffered severe psychological damage.

Kevin said the kids had no privacy during taping, as even their potty training was captured on video (at Kev's house, mind you ... details).

He said there were safety issues, and the kids, who may be moving to Hollywood with Kate, were manipulated by producers to cause drama.

Kevin Kreider kontinued that the children were forced to fake Christmas during the filming of Jon & Kate Plus 8 ... that would just be cruel.

Jon and Kate are used to bad parenting allegations ... but from her bro?

He says as a result of years of taping, the eight kids are psychologically confused ... then again they could just get that from their father.

TLC responded that the allegations levied by Kevin are "either completely inaccurate or a distorted representation for maximum attention."

Jon Gosselin also released a statement, saying "the allegations made by Kevin and Jodi Kreider (his wife) have not been my experience at all."

He must be right for once.

Later, The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry said it will not file charges against the Jon & Kate Plus 8 producers under investigation.

However, TLC producers must obtain child labor permits if they wish to film the Gosselin children in the future, which they supposedly want to.

Nice to see Jon and Kate on the same side for once ... albeit by default and necessity. They'll certainly be back at each other's throats shortly.

Who deserves custody of the Gosselin kids?
