Far from the craziness surrounding her ex-husband, Kate Gosselin welcomed her close friend and bodyguard Steve Neild, his wife Gina and their teenage son to a post Christmas Celebration. Thanks to her divorce agreement, Kate and her eight kids got to keep their beloved Wernersville, PA mini-ranch and the Neilds have remained her main support system.
Kate's low-key day was a far cry from what was going on with Jon Gosselin this weekend. He reported to cops that his New York apartment had been burglarized and, without using her name publicly, has accused his ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman of the crime. Hailey isn't taking the accusations lying down. She has her own attorneys representing her and is making her own accusations against Jon.
Jon Gosselin's NYC Apartment Ransacked: People.com
Jon Gosselin returned to New York after spending Christmas in Pennsylvania with his eight children to discover his apartment had been burglarized. "[He] called me this afternoon . . . when he entered his apartment in Manhattan and was horrified, disheartened and saddened to observe the devastation of his furniture, clothing and personal belongings, which were apparently slashed with a butcher knife by a very troubled and sick perpetrator," Gosselin's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, said in a statement Saturday. "Jon immediately contacted me and facilitated the able assistance of the New York City Police Department who immediately dispatched an experienced detective to Jon’s apartment." According to Heller, Gosselin, 32, discovered a note that was "speared" into his wooden dresser. Heller also says that Gosselin's television, CD player, coffee maker, a Nintendo Wii game and dishes, pots and pans were stolen from the New York apartment, while some of his clothing, luggage and bedding was slashed. "The greatest damage from this vicious, mean spirited and heartless crime was perpetrated not on Jon’s property and possessions, but on Jon Gosselin himself, who experienced a traumatic, emotional, roller coast ride having just shared a joyful family gathering with his children during their Christmas," Heller's statement read.
Jon Gosselin's Lawyer On Burglary: "Hailey Will Go To Jail!": Radar.com
"Hailey Glassman is going to jail. It's a simple as that." That's what Jon Gosselin's lawyer Mark Heller told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview, as New York police continue to investigate damage to Jon's apartment. Police seized building security tape, according to Heller, who said the only person other than Jon with a key to his apartment is Hailey. Heller spoke out after Hailey's attorney told RadarOnline.com that the situation appeared to be a "huge publicity stunt" and someone is trying to frame Hailey. Heller fired back that security video will prove Hailey trashed Jon's apartment Saturday and left with his plasma TV and other belongings.
He revealed that Jon's favorite Louis Vuitton shoes were shredded by some type of knife and a Ming vase that was in Jon's family for 100 years was shattered.
Police gathered fingerprint evidence from the knife and the handwritten note, Heller told RadarOnline.com. One source says that Hailey has admitted to writing the note.
"The building security tape will not lie and the evidence will speak for itself," Heller told RadarOnline.com. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star discovered his New York apartment ransacked after spending Christmas in Pennsylvania with his eight children.
He also found a handwritten note "speared" with a knife into his wooden dresser, Heller told RadarOnline.com. Some of his clothing, luggage and bedding was slashed, according to Heller. Hailey's mother called Jon, Heller told RadarOnline.com, but Jon wouldn't discuss the incident with her.
RadarOnline.com was first to report that Hailey was questioned by police on Saturday and that her parents spoke to police Sunday. Never one to mince words, Heller told RadarOnline.com: "Jon feels like he was raped." He added that investigators will speak to Jon again in several days and he expects criminal charges to be filed soon after that. Bad feelings between Hailey and Jon were obvious when Hailey Twittered that Jon stole her rent money, a story first reported by RadarOnline.com. She moved out of the apartment they were sharing last week.
