Robert Hoffman, author of the stinging e-book How She Fooled the World, got a big surprise Monday afternoon: all of the posts on his anti-Kate web site are gone!
"I honestly don't know anything yet (about the situation)," Hoffman told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive , adding that he was "waiting for an explanation." (The posts were removed at some point between Monday morning and late afternoon.)
Hoffman had previously been silenced by two top law firms who succeeded in getting Amazon to remove his e-book from sale. The book contains reams of material found on Kate's computer hard drive, which Hoffman told Radar he obtained from her trash.
In recent weeks, he has charged that she has been physically violent toward her children, detailed her seemingly endless quest for free products, accused her of using her children to achieve personal fame, stated flat out that Jon Gosselin — his friend — is the better parent, and admitted to calling Child Protective Services on the mom of eight. Now all of the material on his web site has been removed and Hoffman tells Radar, "…it would appear that the lawyers are at it again."
He revealed he received this message at the top of his account page: "We have received a DMCA complaint for one or more of your blogs. Emails with the details were sent to you and all affected posts have been reset to "Draft" status (you may find them by selecting "Drafts" on the "Edit posts" page for each of the affected blogs). You may re-publish the posts with the offending content and/or link(s) removed. If you believe you have the rights to post this content, you can file a counter-claim with us."
Hoffman says he never received any emails from Google or any other entity. The email directed him to Google's policy on removing content. The prestigious Washington, D.C. law firm of Williams & Connolly has represented TLC's parent company Discovery in the legal fray over the e-book and the top-not LA firm Lavely & also teamed up against Hoffman and is believed to be representing Kate. It seems that one of the firms went around Hoffman -- after putting him on notice -- and succeeded in having his material officially removed for now.
The last post Hoffman put up was about spending a night with Jon, his children and his girlfriend and extolled his parenting skills with a scathing comparison to Kate’s. Hoffman claims he has more damaging info on Kate that he will release at a later date. But for now at least, it appears that Kate has succeeded in wiping him off the web.
