Jon and Kate Gosselin haven't slept together in months, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The reality-show couple will announce their divorce next week, as RadarOnline.com reported exclusively on Thursday. And even as the cameras have rolled for the new season of Jon & Kate Plus 8, a troubled marriage in front of the camera has been a nonexistent union off screen.
Kate has consulted a divorce attorney and Jon plans to file divorce papers next week, a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. As America has helped them reach record TV ratings in the past few weeks - nearly 10 million people tuned in to the season premiere on TLC -- more drama was unfolding behind the scenes. "Jon and Kate haven't slept together in months. Jon doesn't even like to come in the house when Kate is there," the source told RadarOnline.com.
Jon has been living in sleeping quarters in the garage. He has not shared a bed with Kate in months, the source said. Their on-screen fighting and bickering pales in comparison to the off-screen chill that exists between them, and Jon has done everything he can to avoid his wife, according to the source.
The marriage has been dying slowly for a while, says the source. In May, Kate's brother and sister-in-law, Kevin and Jodi Kreider, told RadarOnline.com that, "Six months ago Kate came to Jon and said, 'Hey, it's over.'" But the couple stayed together and RadarOnline.com learned that they recently moved up the time table for splitting, as tension between them grew.
The source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com that Jon reached the point where he didn't want to be in the same house with Kate, much less sleep with her. Us Weekly previously reported that Jon was having an affair with Deanna Hummel. Her brother, who lived with Deanna, told the magazine that he had spent nights at her house.
Jon and Kate spent their 10th wedding anniversary apart last weekend and have been photographed together infrequently in recent weeks.
But Jon was photographed with another woman - after he moved on from Deanna. RadarOnline.com exclusively reported he was seeing Hailey Glassman, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed a tummy tuck on Kate.
