Kate Gosselin: I’m NOT “Engaged” — Or “Even Dating Anyone,” Despite Rumors
Kate Gosselin is NOT engaged. In fact, she’s says not even dating, despite reports linking her to businessman Jeff Prescott. The reality star took to Twitter on Monday to set the record straight about the rumors.
In Touch, OK!, and webloids like RadarOnline, Celeb Dirty Laundry and The Hollywood Gossip all speculated that Gosselin was engaged to Prescott after she appeared at TLC’s Summer Block Party in Philadelphia on Saturday. The former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant was photographed wearing sparkly rings on both hands.
That was enough for RadarOnline to blare, “Sudden Engagement? Kate Gosselin Flaunts Ring On THAT Finger At TLC Block Party — She Can’t Stop Smiling!” Celeb Dirty Laundry wrote, “Kate Gosselin Engaged to Jeff Prescott: See Engagement Ring Photo – Marriage on the Horizon?” Of course, none of the outlets bothered to check with Gosselin or a rep before sensationalizing the pictures.
And now Gosselin herself is saying all the speculation is just not true. “Fyi: I’m not engaged-not even dating any1.Loved the ring so I put it on myself 4 my bday,” she tweeted Monday morning. The mom of eight added, “Had 2have something abt that # to make me smile #40.” Gosselin’s’ big birthday was on March 28.
The “Kate Plus 8” star has never been shy about calling out the rumor mill for false stories. As Gossip Cop previously reported, back in 2011 Gosselin slammed HollywoodLife for wrongly claiming she had a “new man” after supposedly going on blind dates. Kudos to Gosselin for not letting outlets get away with fake crap.
