It’s good that potential new boyfriends don’t typically check with exes for relationship references, because Kate Gosselin doesn’t seem to have too many happy men in her past.
The latest disgruntled ex is Jeff Prescott, the millionaire Kate started dating late last year. The romance began strongly enough, with Jeff publicly praising Kate, and Kate sparking engagement rumors…but Entertainment Tonight reports he abruptly ended things earlier this month, days before he was scheduled to film for Kate’s TLC show. Their source said Jeff “is protective of his three children from a previous marriage and didn’t want the increased exposure, so his team advised him against filming with Gosselin.” They also said he’s moved on with a 26-year-old woman, which left Kate broken-hearted.
However, Jeff’s friends told a slightly different story to TMZ. According to them, Jeff was totally invested in the relationship with Kate — but “quickly learned she only wanted him to appear on Kate Plus 8 this season as her love interest.” They say he changed him mind about doing the show when he realized kate “was just using him.”
The insiders added Kate and Jeff are no longer on speaking terms. At least he has a potential new friend in Jon Gosselin!
