Jon Gosselin secretly gave the author of a new Kate Gosselin book computer hard drives containing deeply personal information, according to an explosive new report.

Two law firms say Robert Hoffman's tell-all about Kate Gosselin violated trade secrets and copyright laws, and it was pulled off of Amazon after only two days.

Hoffman admits obtaining Kate's computer hard drive, but maintains he pulled it out of her trash (no joke) and that Jon had nothing to do with his action.

But now a source close to the situation tells a different story.

"Jon made copies of her hard drive and gave them to Rob as a backup plan in case there was anything he needed while they were going through their divorce," a source tells Radar.

Hoffman maintains he did not get any of the information from Jon.

"Regarding Jon Gosselin, as stated clearly in the book, he had absolutely nothing to do with personally giving me any information whatsoever for the book," he said.

You should reach out to him personally to answer any questions."

Rob's book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, is filled with what appear to be emails from Kate, the Discovery network, contracts and personal documents.

The book also contains allegations that Kate has been violent with her children, and that Child Protective Services were called because of her actions twice.

Hoffman says he hasn't even printed the half of it, saying:

“The other 90 percent of the material that I possess will not be published, ever, but you can be sure that if I'm falsely accused of anything and drug [sic] into court, or called a liar by Kate Gosselin or her lawyers, this information will come out then, including photographs. I also have physical and photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book."

"There is so much more to this that hasn't been revealed."

Jon has not commented on the allegations made here.
