We have no idea why she changed her mind!
In a shocking move Kate Gosselin has dropped her multi-million dollar lawsuit against her ex Jon Gosselin.
The reality mama dismissed the suit with prejudice which means she can never sue him for this particular thing ever again!
Although she did NOT drop the other defendant Robert Hoffman, author of Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, from the case. That one is still on!
The lawsuit was initially brought to court after Mr. Hoffman released his scandalous book that had VERY intimate knowledge of Kate Gosselin. Kate accused Mr. Hoffman and her ex husband of partnering up and illegally wiretapping her phone and email. She also claimed Jon stole a hard drive from her home!
The Kate Plus 8 matriarch eventually created a lawsuit against the two, accusing them of wiretapping, computer hacking, identity theft and invasion of privacy, and was suing for millions!
But Jon Gosselin will no longer be involved in all that!
Here was what motion filed in the United States District Court of Pennsylvania on Tuesday said:
“Plaintiff Kate Gosselin agrees to dismiss with prejudice all claims and potential claims that she has or may have against Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin that were or could have been asserted in this case. By this motion, Plaintiff Kate Gosselin is not dismissing her claims against any Defendant other than Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin. Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin agrees to dismiss with prejudice all counterclaims or potential counterclaims that he has or may have against Plaintiff Kate Gosselin that were or could have been asserted in this case.”
That last part basically means that although Kate Gosselin has dropped the case against her ex - he has agreed to dismiss any counterclaims he had against her!
We're not sure why Kate has dropped the case, but it may have something to do with the fact that everyone knows her ex has absolutely NO money.
She'd literally be suing for close to nothing, and it was probably not worth it to her in the end.
And maybe, just maybe, they did it for their kids?
We'd like to think that may be the case, but somehow we don't think they factored into all of this.
