UPDATE: Despite Gosselin’s earlier claim that the two are not romantically involved, Radar reports Jon Gosselin and Kate Major are still ‘shacked up’ at Michael Lohan’s Southampton home.
Jon Gosselin is getting a harsh taste of the fame game–you know the one he claims to resent–yet also seems to have invited in.
The ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8‘ star is reeling after tabloid reporter Kate Major, 26, announced publicly that she was dating Gosselin and even quit her job over her ‘relationship’ with the TLC star.
Gosselin, 32, says he was ‘tricked’ by the reporter and is ‘distraught’ over Major’s claims that they are an item, sources tell Radaronline.
“Oh my God, I can’t believe she did this to me,” Gosselin told a pal. “What do I do? She’s totally (bleeping) me over.”
Jon says he and the new Kate were never romantically involved. And he’s apparently furious about the media frenzy that erupted over the story.
The two had dinner last Saturday night in New York, where Gosselin claims they were discussing details for a story Major was writing.
Gosselin was seen traipsing around the Hamptons again with Major on Wednesday night, when the pair went to a dinner party with Michael Lohan (Lindsay’s dad) and ‘Real Housewife of NYC’ Jill Zarin, who told People, ‘He didn’t seem smitten…[but]…They are definitely dating.’
“I didn’t mean it to happen, it just did,” Major said in a statement released Wednesday. “I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him.”
By Thursday morning, she had resigned from her position as senior reporter at Star, citing ‘conflict of interest.’
Gosselin wasn’t the only one rocked by the Major bombshell.
Jon’s other other woman, Hailey Glassman, was ‘shocked’ by Gosselin’s reported involvement with Major, and tearfully said to People, “I still love Jon and Jon loves me.”
While Jon is proving more gullible by the day, his soon-to-be-ex-wife Kate Gosselin is minding the couple’s eight children.
Inside sources claim the kids are still ‘okay,’ despite the circus going on around them, and Kate seems to be taking strides to make sure they stay that way.
On Thursday night, his baby mama made any eight-year-old’s dream come true when she took twins Cara and Mady and one of their friends to the Jonas Brothers concert in Philadelphia.
“They were really happy and excited,” a source told E! News.
Kate seems to be moving on as well: She was spotted for the first time since the couple’s separation without her wedding ring on.
