Life & Style magazine has exclusively learned that earlier this year, Kate Gosselin became the focus of a child abuse investigation.
It all went down after Kate sent their son Collin, who has special needs, to a treatment facility, a source exclusively shares with the magazine, on newsstands now. At the facility, Collin claimed to have suffered abuse at Kate’s hands: “Collin said something to the facility’s staff and it was reported to Children and Youth Services [CYS], which started an official probe,” the source reveals to Life & Style.
“The police later notified Collin’s dad, Jon, that a child abuse investigation was opened,” the source explains.
Collin isn’t the only Gosselin child to have suffered. Nannies have witnessed the mom of eight getting physical with Mady and Cara, too, leaving them in tears. “Kate would spank her kids, especially the twins,” a former nanny who worked for the family when Jon and Kate were still a couple tells Life & Style.
“The spanking was open-handed and was to discipline them if they wouldn’t listen, but the kids would just cry more. They were scared. This would happen a few times a week.”
