Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin once again found herself the center of a media firestorm Friday morning as paparazzi chased her down at a Days Inn in Reading, PA where she spent the night after calling the cops on estranged husband Jon.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, police were called to Jon and Kate’s home in Wernersville, PA Thursday night after Kate went to the home and Jon refused to let her in. The couple –who are in the midst of a bitter divorce — got into a heated argument at the fence outside of the home. The fight focused on Jon’s hiring of Stephanie Santoro, the nanny who was on duty that day.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, on at least one occasion, Jon has spent the night with Santoro, 23, a former cocktail waitress, single mom and aspiring model whose online resume reveals she’s willing to pose nude!
One source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com, “Kate showed up at the house unexpectedly. It’s Jon’s scheduled time to be there with the kids.”
As the couple’s marriage has unraveled so has the civility between them. “Kate couldn’t get access to the house. She was upset,” said the source.
Police arrived but no arrests were made. Kate left and checked into the Day’s Inn.
At 4 a.m. Friday, there was a huge scene when Kate tried to leave the hotel. RadarOnline.com was on the scene as Kate had the police come and carry her luggage and walk her to her black Toyota SUV, which was approximately 40 steps from the front hotel door.
Four police cars showed up and shined lights in every car in the parking lot to make sure no paps were around, and the few cars that did have paps were kicked out of the lot before Kate came out.
One photographer went to a lot across the street where a cop later came and blocked him in until Kate got close to the highway. The pap then attempted to follow Kate down U.S. Highway 222 North but lost her just past Kutztown, PA.
The pap told RadarOnline.com that Kate was driving about 95 miles an hour and shut off her headlight several times when she got near an exit, in an apparent attempt to try to throw off the two paparazzi cars that were following her.
And although Jon may have spent the night with Santoro in the past, he is still romancing 22-year-old Hailey Glassman.
