While Jon Gosselin may have played mitigator countless times among his eight children, its now the newly single dad’s task to be diplomatic–or as vague as possible–with his love life.
Sources tell RadarOnline.com that Gosselin is terrified of claiming a new girlfriend publicly, be it the scandalous Hailey Glassman or celeb reporter Kate Major, as he is worried wife Kate “will kill him in a divorce battle.”
Issues like Glassman’s blatant and excessive past drug use, as evidenced in countless photos to hit the Internet, could more than arm Kate Gosselin to flatten Jon in court.
And as for his attempts at subterranean dating–how long until these rebound gals strike back?
Major retired from her post at Star Magazine over the romance with Jon, which she insists is on.
Yet Gosselin’s new buddy Michael Lohan insists that Gosselin is single.
“He’s not with either [girl] right now,” Lohan told People magazine on Saturday.
“He’s not concentrating on a relationship with any woman. He just wants to take a step back and deal with his family and his kids.”
And then there’s Glassman, who just yesterday Jon claimed was in the picture.
“My heart is always with Hailey,” Gosselin told Us Weekly at the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge in Bridgehampton, NY.
Clear Jon’s relationship status is changing by the day.
“The only thing that’s for sure if he¹s scared to death of wife Kate and the custody battle,” the source adds.
We’d probably hide away in the Hamptons, too.
