Oh! Kate Gosselin and her bodyguard Steve Neild have gone their separate ways! Awww. I guess all
good tacky and unnecessary things really do come to an end. TLC hired Steve in 2008 to protect the Gosselin kids while filming Jon & Kate Plus 8. But Kate, in all her selfish and delusional glory, has dominated Steve’s time and attention for the past six years.
Rumors surrounding the nature of Kate and Steve‘s relationship have swirled for years… as far back as 2009 when Kate’s marriage to Jon Gosselin fell apart. Most recently, Kate and Steve were caught sharing a hotel room in New York City while Kate filmed Celebrity Apprentice. Um, did Kate need Steve to protect her from scary room service? Bed bugs?

Steve‘s wife, Gina, reached her breaking point – Seriously? It took six years?!? – and gave her husband an ultimatum. “She told him his time with Kate as her bodyguard was making the family miserable and that he had to make a choice,” a source close to the Neild family revealed. “So he made the decision to spend quality time with his family this summer.”
Reportedly, Steve quit his job as Kate‘s bodyguard to focus on his his wife of 20 years, their two sons, and his job as the EVP of a security firm in Maryland.
“Kate understands she was perceived as the ‘other woman,’ but she enjoyed his company,” shared a second source. “Kate and Steve no longer have any communication.” As you can imagine, Kate is torn up over Steve’s absence. I mean, how is a standoffish has-been reality TV star supposed to buy groceries in rural Pennsylvania without protection? #EyeRoll
