The woman in the alleged cheating scandal involving Jon Gesslin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 is speaking out, denying all cheating allegations.
Deanna Hummel, 23, tells PEOPLE, “We’re just friends. It’s absurd that anyone would think otherwise.” Deanna claims she met Jon through a mutual friend months ago, and the two have been hanging out – as part of a group of friends, not as couple. She goes on to claim the social outings have included visits to each other’s houses and nights out on the town, but always with others there, and it’s always all innocent.
She also want on to say the above photo of her leaving a club with Jon was being misinterpreted, “He just got this new car and I wanted to drive it. I’m into cars,” she says. “We all have guy and girl friends. Because of who he is, it gets portrayed the wrong way, and it’s unfair to him and his family.”
Jon released a statement last week after the photo was released saying he show “poor judgement.” Gee you don’t say Jon. It seems rather interesting though that Jon’s wife, Kate has yet to release any sort of statement since this scandal broke out.
The cheating allegations are not going away anytime soon for Jon Gosselin as the father of 8 was caught leaving a club at 2:00 am with another woman, not wearing his wedding ring. All this while his wife Kate was 2,000 miles away, promoting her book Eight Little Faces in Bellevue, Washington.
USWeekly reports that Jon arrived at the club at 11:20 p.m. and by 2 a.m. “could barely walk” as he exited the less-public back entrance of Legends Lounge — near the family’s $1.3-million home in Wernersville, Pennsylvania — on April 18.
Jon was alledgedly overheard yelling, “Hey, babe! Babe! Give me my jacket!” before climbing into his Nissan Nismo. As cameras began snapping, he panicked, urging his female friend to “get in the car!” before speeding off hastily — without even turning on the headlights.
Jon has however denied this cheating allegation in his statement to USWeekly stating, “I went to Legends to speak to the owner. A friend of mine wanted to check out my car, so I let her drive it to her car. Yes, I have female friends — but that is all she is. I’m not going to end my friendships just because I’m on TV.”
We can be sure to expect some more berating of Jon by Kate in the next season of the show.
