Sounds like Kate Gosselin and her rumored boyfriend Jeff Prescott really deserve each other!
Shortly after In Touch Weekly reported that Jon is seeking custody of the couple’s 11-year-old daughter Hannah because she was traumatized by her mother’s alleged harsh behavior, a new report claims her millionaire man friend has his own history of child abuse!

Court documents obtained by Radar Online reveal that when the 51-year-old was going through his 2006 divorce from his first wife, Michelle Jones, she accused him of neglecting their children Ashley, Brooke and Connor (who were 19, 14 and 10, respectively, at the time) by seeing them infrequently.
Michelle claimed at the time of the filing, he had Connor “two times overnight” in the five months since they separated, adding, “He has not taken the girls at all overnight.”

The documents go on to allege he would go days without answering his cellphone or telling his wife and children (one of whom is reportedly disabled) where he was.
The docs also detailed an email sent by Jeff to his young daughters in an alleged attempt to manipulate them into taking his side.

The email purportedly stated, “I…want to make it very clear that I have given your mom every chance to try and settle things in a way that would not require all that is about to transpire. Again, she has chosen this battle for reasons I cannot understand.
“We will spend a ton of money on lawyers. Money that I would have rather seen go to you guys or your mother but she sees things differently.”

Despite their messy divorce, Michelle and Jeff are currently on good terms — she even gave her ex and the reality TV mom, 40, her blessings.
“He deserves happiness,” the former Mrs. Jeff Prescott said of the new couple.
