In the Jon Gosselin dating spectacle, the players can't seem to get their stories straight, issuing contradictory statements, and now we know why.
A source very, very, very, very close to Jon revealed exclusively to RadarOnline.com that Jon is secretly still dating both Hailey Glassman AND Kate Major.
Hailey, 22, and Kate, 26, both thought they were in an exclusive relationship with the Reality Show Romeo.
Hailey went to France with Jon and then suddenly last week Jon took off to The Hamptons with Major, who soon announced they were romantically involved. They stayed at Michael Lohan's house and she even quit her job as a reporter at Star magazine to pursue the relationship.
But this weekend, with Major nowhere in sight, Jon broke his public silence and said he and Kate are "just friends."
That, however, is just a smokescreen. "He is a man going through a divorce and he's trying to keep his personal life private," the source told RadarOnline.com.

Asked if he was dating Hailey, Kate, both or neither, the source said: "He is choosing not to end anything with either woman. He's dating and he doesn't want to tie himself down."
The source then admitted that Jon is deliberately sending out mixed signal publicly because he's afraid that Original Kate (a.k.a. Mrs. Gosselin) is going to pursue a custody battle.
Defending Jon, one person who is friendly with him, said to RadarOnline.com: "Look , is there something wrong with a man going through a divorce dating any woman he wants?"
We could answer that with some comment about taking care of the eight kids he left behind, but we won't. We have a feeling Kate's lawyers are going to provide their own answer.
