EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Kate Major Retains Lawyer to Sue Jon Gosselin
Jon Gosselin’s embarrassingly public blunders are hitting him right where it counts – the wallet.
RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that the reality dad’s former fling, Kate Major, has retained an attorney and is moving forward with plans to sue him for breach of contract.
“Kate called me and has retained my services regarding a possible breach of contract between herself and Jon Gosselin,” Major’s attorney, Ben Pietra, confirmed to RadarOnline.com exclusively. “We are keeping our legal options open, but if a breach of contract has occurred, we will be moving forward with a lawsuit.”
As RadarOnline.com reported exclusively earlier Wednesday, Gosselin and Major signed a secret handwritten agreement back in June, in which Kate agreed to work for Jon as his personal assistant, earning a percentage from his accounts and pledging not to talk to the media about their relationship.

That document is likely to be the centerpiece of the new litigation against Jon, who is already facing a breach of contract action from TLC.

"Kate 2.0 and Jon spent a weekend in a hotel where they drew up the contract,” a well-placed source told RadarOnline.com. Kate had just resigned from her position as an entertainment magazine reporter, and according to the source, “Jon told her he would match the salary she was making at the magazine if she came to work for him as his personal employee.”
The source added: “Jon drafted the agreement and they both signed it.”
Now Major wants payback for the time she says she wasted waiting for Gosselin to make good on his promises.
Along with breach of contract, an insider tells RadarOnline.com that the 26-year-old also plans to sue for fraud and loss of wages.
