After screaming at her eight kids and even admitting to spanking them in uncovered diary entries, Kate Gosselin recently confessed that she's been investigated by child services "many times" over the years.
But RadarOnline.com can exclusively report that the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services has refused to release any records involving the controversial Kate Plus 8 star, 41.
After Radar requested the documents via the state's Right-To-Know Law, the DHS shut down the inquiry more than a month later, claiming official papers regarding child abuse are not considered "public record."
For now, Gosselin's possible secrets are safe in the government's possession. But the single mother has other major family problems on her shoulders.
As Radar previously reported, sextuplet Collin, 12, has been receiving treatment for what sources called "anger issues" in a treatment facility far from home since the summer.
"This has been extremely heartbreaking for Kate," an insider told Radar in September. "She's really struggling."
