Kate Gosselin Suing Ex Over Hacking Allegations

Four years after a bitter divorce battle, Kate Gosselin is once again taking aim at her ex-husband Jon.

The "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star filed papers in federal court in Philadelphia on Monday (August 26) claiming Jon stole her hard drive and hacked in to her computer and phone to obtain material for a friend's book.

“Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World,” which was written by a pal of Jon's has since been pulled from Amazon over allegations that the material was obtained illegally.

When the book was published in 2012, Kate's lawyer said at the time, "Jon violated a federal anti-hacking statute in order to publish salacious, scandalous and defamatory information about Kate. It's damaged her reputation."
