In recent weeks, Mady’s famous fam has been making headlines after her dad, Jon Gosselin, went on the record to expose Kate, 44, for allegedly being a tyrant of a parent. “Kate is not doing the shows for her family, Kate is doing it for herself,” the 42-year-old said during a sit-down interview with DailyMailTV. “She’s narcissistic and selfish. That’s it. Period. All of this is for her.”

In the wake of his admission, Kate is allegedly frightened about what is next to come. A source exclusively told In Touch that friends say Kate’s “afraid that Jon, now that his gag order has been lifted, might be up to something.” Adding, “She’s afraid that Jon might get another show, which he’s been pushing for, and that Hannah and Collin might start talking. About what? Kate says she doesn’t know, but of course she does.”

Another source exclusively told In Touch Kate’s worry is much greater than Jon getting air time. “That’s Kate’s biggest fear — her kids turning against her. But by the looks of it, two already have, and who knows what Jon is planning.” Two of Kate’s eight children already live with Jon full-time: Collin and Hannah, 15. Jon won custody of Collin in December 2018, and Kate had allegedly made no effort to stay in contact with her son, according to Radar Online.

Despite the drama going down at home, we are so happy Mady enjoyed her birthday!
