Kate Gosselin has one big thing in common with the new man in her life, Jeff Prescott: They’ve both been through messy divorces!
In documents exclusively obtained by ‘In Touch’ from his 2006 divorce, the millionaire businessman’s then-wife of 19 years, Michelle Jones, detailed his alleged violent ways and claimed she sought help more than once because she was afraid of him.
According to the document, in 2005, police came to their Barnstable, Mass., home to settle a dispute after she claimed Prescott had flown into a jealous rage. Then in 2006, Jones alleged that Prescott “threw me against a wall … put both hands around my neck and told me, ‘I will f---ing kill you,’” during a heated argument in a Tennessee hotel room.
Prescott denied the charges in documents of his own, and made accusations about Jones as well.
But he’s still dealing with the fallout from his divorce! Jones’ attorney, Sean Igoe, tells 'In Touch' the exes “get along quite well,” but the documents show Jones and Prescott were squabbling (via attorneys) over petty concerns as recently as last July.
