Robert Hoffman, who is a friend of Kate’s ex husband Jon Gosselin, just released his e-book: Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World. The book was pulled from Amazon within two days after two high-powered law firms took aim at the author.
Hoffman says he has Kate’s personal journal, emails, contracts, tax returns and more, all gathered (he says) from computer hard drives he retrieved from her trash.
And those journals, Hoffman alleges, reveal that Kate has been violent toward her children. Many of his allegations cannot be repeated by Radar as they are potentially libelous and lack independent substantiation.
In an email interview, Hoffman told Radar that he has reported Kate to the authorities for the sake of her children.
“I personally contacted Child Protection Services (sic) twice in 2010 when I found the journal,” Hoffman said, “I sent them copies of what I had and they told me they would look into it and that’s the last I heard. I’ve tried to talk to Kate several times in 2010 but she wouldn’t acknowledge my existence.”
Hoffman’s book has stoked the Jon versus Kate debate yet again and takes anti-Kate fervor to new heights as he alleges that she is out of control and repeats old charges of her fanatical freebie-seeking behavior.
His most incendiary charges concern her interaction with the children and her “personal journal” that he quotes from contains admissions of behavior that include spanking the children with a spoon and worse.
In his book, Hoffman claims to have spoken to hundreds of people, and he told Radar in the email interview: “My sources include former crew members who witnessed” the alleged behavior toward the children that caused him to call authorities.
William and Connolly, representing TLC and its parent network, alleges the book contains confidential information.
Hoffman goes on to say, “I can tell you that all of my information regarding Kate Gosselin used in the book was obtained by me personally through completely legal means.”
Hoffman also insists that his material from Kate’s computer is genuine and that, “anyone with basic knowledge of computers can look at the discs and see when they were created and if they were ever modified in any way.
“The book contains about ten percent of what was found in the computer files. There is so much more that hasn’t been revealed. I also have physical and photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book.”
Jon Gosselin has not commented publicly on Hoffman’s book and his allegations.
