KATE Gosselin is messing up her children!
The reality TV star — who raises eight kids with ex-husband Jon Gosselin — refuses to speak to her former spouse’s new girlfriend Ellen.
And according family therapist Dr. Jeff Gardere, Kate’s actions could damage her brood!
“It’s not unusual in divorces for someone to act this way towards their ex’s new partner,” Dr. Gardere, who consuls parents on the Vh1’s Dad Camp, told HollyBaby.
“There is a lot of bitterness there and that can be hard to see, even if that relationship is long over.
“She may not take the relationship between them seriously. In Kate’s mind she could think that Ellen is just passing through and doesn’t have any real significance.
“Kate needs to drop all of her bad feelings and she must meet her now!
“This woman has responsibilities with Kate’s kids and as a mom she needs to know who this woman is, even if she thinks it’s her enemy!”
“The kids will get the message that it’s considered bad to like this woman and that creates divided loyalty and they will end up feeling guilty.”
Meanwhile, Kate is suing Jon for $125,000.
“She makes several million dollars a year and has free things thrown at her and the kids — if anything, she should be paying Jon child support!” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine.
“It is a shock to everyone that she still insists Jon pay her money, when his focus needs to be on providing what he can for the kids during his custody.
“Her attempts to sue Jon are just ways she tries to control everything around her because she’s still angry about their failed marriage.
“Kate is so cheap, at least when it comes to the kids: She has TLC pay for their food, clothes and travel on days they film.
“She’s frugal when it comes to the kids, but she has no qualms about spending money on herself.
“Jon’s paid back $80,000 this year so far and the court ordered him to pay around $22,000 a month.
“That amount was based on his potential earning, which has changed so much since TLC has limited the amount of media work he can do — and that’s how Jon was making his living. Before their series ended, they both were making hundreds of thousands of dollars on appearances and media deals. Between the two of them, they must have made millions. But they spent the money as fast as they earned it.”[imagebrowser id=604]
