Did Kate Gosselin try to bribe Jon Gosselin to have an open marriage prior to their divorce? Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin’s marriage ended well over six years ago, but it looks like all the dirty details from their divorce are coming out. There’s new speculation that Kate Gosselin lied to Jon Gosselin about having an open relationship and seeing other people while they were still married.
According to In Touch Weekly, Kate Gosselin was so desperate to keep her reality television fame going for as long as possible and that’s why she was willing to fake her Jon Gosselin marriage in front of the cameras. In fact, there’s speculation that Kate Gosselin tried to persuade Jon Gosselin to have an open marriage so the two could date other people while at the same time pretending to be married for the cameras.
Apparently, Kate Gosselin’s dating plan backfired on her as she tried to manipulate Jon Gosselin to stay in their marriage for nothing more than money and fame. Ultimately, Kate Gosselin’s plan didn’t work and that’s why she dumped Jon Gosselin for her bodyguard Steve Neild in 2009 istead.
One source close to the situation dished, “Kate wanted fame and fortune at any cost. TLC and Kate agreed that they needed to keep the marriage intact to make the show go on and offered Jon $2 million to sign a contract to stay married for two more years. Jon refused — he didn’t want to have a fake marriage for a TV show. She was willing to do it back then to stay relevant, and she’s still doing it now. That interview is filled with lies.”
Of course, this shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows how cold and calculating Kate Gosselin has been throughout the years, especially when it comes to exposing her family in the celebrity spotlight. Kate Gosselin threw her ex-husband Jon Gosselin under the bus several times, forced her twin daughters Mady and Cara to speak in what could best be described as an awkward interview with ‘Good Morning America’ several years ago and even outed her son Collin Gosselin by telling ‘People Magazine’ that he has special needs that can best be taken care of if he’s at a center away from home that can give him the help he needs.
Kate Gosselin apparently knows no limits when it comes to selling her family to the media and that’s why she’s been trying so hard to keep herself as relevant as possible, despite her D-list status as a has-been reality television star.
