Despite US Magazine confirming that Jon Gosselin cheated on his wife Kate by having a 3 month affair with grade school teacher, Deanna Hummel, Jon has come out denying all cheating allegations.
Jon released a statement to People saying, “These allegations are false and just plain hurtful. As I adjust to the attention that comes from being in the public eye, I need to be more careful and aware of who I am associating with and where I am spending my time. But the bottom line is, I did not cheat on Kate. I am sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgments I’ve made recently.”
The “other” woman involved in this scandal, Deanna Hummel, also denies the allegations leveled against her by her own brother who claims she had an affair with Jon. Deanna said, “My brother is making this all up,” she says. “I can’t even stomach the lies he’s saying about me.”
Kate opened up for the first time on the Rachael Ray Show’s taping yesterday about how she’s dealing with this entire scandal, “It’s one of those things that we’re just handling privately. We’re just taking it one step at a time and I’m trying to walk through it.” The episode will air on Tuesday.
Kate also admitted to Entertainment Weekly that Jon’s behavior has caused some problems for the couple, “Jon’s poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us.”
Deanna’s brother, Jason Hummell, continues to stand by his story saying he has no reason to lie. Jason states, “I noticed that in both her and Jon’s recent comments, that neither of them addresses the fact that he was sleeping over at our house and was videotaped leaving our house at 7:30 in the morning.”
