A security tape shows that Jon Gosselin was in his apartment for only 60 seconds before leaving to report a burglary to building management, proving  he didn’t stage the break-in, his lawyer told exclusively.

The lawyer also said the New York police want to meet with Jon on January 3.

“He is going to be clocked by that surveillance camera going into his building,” Mark Heller told Sixty seconds after going into his apartment, “he comes down to talk to management. It’s all on tape.

“He couldn’t have done all that damage in 60 seconds. His place was trashed, his belongings ripped to shreds.”

Heller was responding to reports that Jon staged the burglary at his New York apartment as a publicity stunt. Hailey Glassman has been questioned by New York police in connection with the Saturday incident and her parents have also spoken to cops.

Hailey’s lawyer told that Jon’s ex-girlfriend did remove items from the apartment they shared, including a TV, but that the items belonged to Hailey.

Not so, says Heller.

“She’s probably going to have a list of things she said he said she could take,” Heller told “Well, let me tell you, we will have credit card statement and receipts proving Jon bought the items she is carrying out the door.

“And we will say in a sworn affidavit that he (Jon) didn’t authorize her to take the TV and other items that belong to him. Once they (investigators) see the video it will be a felony.” Heller says he believes Hailey will face charges of  possession of stolen property and vandalism.

Some of Jon’s clothing was slashed, a Ming vase was broken and a note, allegedly from Hailey, was speared to a dresser with a wooden knife. (Hey kids, go rent the movie Fatal Attraction!)

Hailey’s lawyer says she had nothing to do with any of that. But Heller told “The forensics evidence will back up the vandalism.”

Driving home his point, he said: She (Hailey) is looking at felony charges in my opinion. She is looking at four years. And if she is convicted she is definitely doing jail time. I don’t know that she will do four years, but she will do jail time.

“I mean taking a butcher knife and cutting expensive items,, breaking a family heirloom…  give me a break. – I don’t know how you can cut her slack.

“The damage is in the thousands. There is no way she (Hailey) can walk away without severe penalty.”
