A Jon and Kate open marriage? Surely this could not be the case, but according to several internet web-sites, it seems that it might be. Jon and Kate Gosselin, the stars of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8, had recently been seen in the press as having marital problems, and then cheating rumors starting to spark up everywhere. First Jon Gosselin was alleged to have an affair with a school teacher, and then it was reported that Kate Gosselin was having an affair with her bodyguard. But does it count as having an affair if there is already a pre-arranged agreement in place between the pair?
During a recent interview, and then as reported by Perez Hilton, Kate’s brother Kevin and her sister in law Jodi Kreider may have a different story to present than the one being seen on television. The relatives are claiming that Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin entered into a contract that would permit Jon to openly date if he continued his work on Jon & Kate Plus 8. The revelation would make things boil down to basically a scripted television show, where the couple pretends that they are still married, all in an attempt to pull one over on viewers and make more money on the side. Could something like this really be taking place?
According to the same sources, Kate has already terminated the marriage, and though it wasn’t released as to why she did that, it is certainly going to spark more and more rumors about what is going on behind closed doors. When she terminated the marriage, she then allegedly presented Jon with a contract that explicitly lays out the details of their “relationship” from that point forward. This could be a very damning contract if it all turns out to be true, and it is certainly not going to shine any sort of positive light on this family or their children if it turns out that the American people are just being scammed.
This is all unconfirmed information that the Jon and Kate camp hasn’t responded to at this point. It could also possibly be that their relatives are looking to cash in and have just made up these stories, but it begs the question as to why they would turn on the married couple if it were not true. Kevin had stated that Jon was free to have girlfriends and do basically whatever he wants, just as long as he reports to the show and fulfills all of his professional obligations to the contract. This could really be a sad story if it all turns out to be true, not just for the fans that put their faith in the Gosselin’s, but for all of these kids that are being dragged through the press in a negative fashion. Either way, it seems that the cameras are going to keep running at TLC in an effort to raise ratings even more.
