The 'Kate Plus 8' star was blasted on her Instagram page after vowing to investigate allegations against her ex-husband, Jon.
Kate Gosselin is being blasted on social media after speaking out about allegations that her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, and physically abused their 16-year-old son, Collin.
The former Kate Plus 8 star told People her ex is a “violent and abusive” person amid allegations that he punched and kicked Collin during an argument earlier this month.
Kate — who reportedly lost custody of Collin nearly two years ago when he returned to Jon’s Pennsylvania home after living at a facility for children with special needs for a lengthy period of time — vowed to continue to pursue a Children and Youth Services investigation on behalf of Collin, despite the fact that no charges were filed against her ex and there is no ongoing case against him.

In response to Kate’s very public comments about her son and ex-husband, many people headed to her last social media post to vent. The mom of eight has not posted on Instagram since July, but the comments section of her most recent Instagram post, seen here, was flooded with angry comments from irate followers and former viewers of her reality show who couldn’t believe she was speaking publicly about the personal family situation.
“What happened Kate… case is closed… still running to People magazine and selling your kids out… the party’s over narc,” one commenter wrote.
“Stop trying to be relevant,” another added. “Keep your personal life personal, and stop trying to be front-page news. It is time to get a job and be a Mom.”
“News flash, Kate. You don’t get to kick your kid out of the house because he’s become too difficult for you to exploit…and then complain about how your ex parents him,” a third wrote.
“Wow Kate, you put Collin away and don’t even speak to him and now all of sudden you care… BS,” another ranted.
Other commenters said the mom of eight has no rights over Collin anymore, and some told her to stop “pretending” to care about her kids just to stay relevant now that their TV show is seemingly off the air for good.
Fans of the family know that there hasn’t been a Kate Plus 8 episode on TLC since last fall and that the long-running reality show appears to have been canceled by the network. Kate’s spinoff dating series has also not been renewed.
Kate has not spoken publicly about Collin at all in recent years, after initially revealing she had sent him away to a school for children with special needs. Last year, Jon alleged that his ex-wife was estranged from their son and has a “no-contact” order with him, per In Touch Weekly.

Tottenham falls foul of handball rule to draw with Newcastle
LONDON (AP) — Tottenham fell foul of the Premier League’s newly adopted interpretation of defensive handballs, conceding a penalty deep into stoppage time to draw 1-1 at home to Newcastle on Sunday.
A header by Newcastle substitute Andy Carroll struck the outstretched arm of Eric Dier inside the area and the referee awarded a penalty after viewing the incident on the pitchside monitor.
Callum Wilson converted the spot kick in the seventh minute of added-on time, leading to Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho storming down the tunnel in disgust.
The Premier League has fallen in line with the rest of European soccer this season and applied the defensive handball ruling in a stricter way rather than judging it on intent. Like Robin Koch, Victor Lindelof, Matt Doherty, Neal Maupay and Joel Ward before him this season, Dier was adjudged to have made his body unnaturally bigger by having his arm out when it was hit by the ball.
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson said Saturday, after seeing his side lose 2-1 to a penalty awarded for handball, that the rule was “killing the game” and “destroying my enjoyment of the game of football.”
Lucas Moura had put Tottenham ahead in the 25th minute, tapping in at the back post after Harry Kane had driven the ball across the six-yard box.
Having set up all four of Son Heung-min’s goals in a big win at Southampton last weekend, Kane is already a quarter of the way to the assist record for a single season — held jointly by Thierry Henry and Kevin De Bruyne — after just three rounds of games.
Tottenham should have been leading by a bigger margin at halftime against a lackluster Newcastle, with Son striking the post and crossbar with shots from outside the area and Kane forcing a series of impressive saves from goalkeeper Karl Darlow.
Newcastle applied more pressure in the second half without ever seriously troubling Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, until the penalty.
Amid a busy schedule of games owing to his team’s involvement in Europa League qualifying, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho took off Son at halftime despite the South Korea forward looking dangerous.
