Jon Gosselin says he never had a romantic relationship with Star magazine reporter Kate Major and was tricked by her, sources close to the situation told exclusively.

Major suddenly resigned from Star magazine Thursday.

Major, 26, announced to the world Wednesday night that she was romantically involved with the 32-year-old Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad.  She was at dinner with him last night with Michael Lohan and two couples and Major and Jon had been to dinner Saturday night in New York City.

Meanwhile sources close to the situation told that Jon is distraught over Major's claims that they were romantically involved.

He told a close pal that despite her public proclamation, he never slept with her and never was romantically involved with her.

"Oh my God, I can't believe she did this to me," he told a source. "What do I do? She's totally (bleeping) me over?"

In a statement released Wednesday night, Major said they were romantically involved. "I didn't mean it to happen, it just did," she said. "I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him."

That statement caused the scandal to explode in national news coverage and, the source said, infuriated Jon.

Despite what Jon is claiming, Michael Lohan told that Jon an Kate slept at his house. Read the interview here.

Major was unavailable for comment Thurdsday and her father said, "No comment. I don't want to be involved in this whatsoever," when a reporter asked him about his daughter's relationship with Jon.

Jon said he went to dinner with Major on Saturday night because she wanted to get details for a story she was writing. But her announcement last night that they were romantically involved completely caught him off guard, the source told

"She just wanted to put herself in the spotlight," the source said.

Jon has been dating Hailey Glassman, 22, who said she had no knowledge of a romantic relationship between Jon and Major.

Major resigned suddenly on Thursday as the controversy over her alleged relationship with Jon grew. Her access to Jon seemed to put her into position to become the perfect source for the magazine, on a story that has taken a reality TV family with mediocre ratings and turned them into one of the hottest subjects in the entertainment news world.

Major did not say if she would continue working for Star in a freelance role.
