'Jon & Kate Plus 8' star Jon Gosselin denies "other woman" report
By Christopher Rocchio, 04/29/2009
Jon & Kate Plus 8 patriarch Jon Gosselin has denied another report of infidelity after he was photographed leaving a club during the early morning hours with a woman that was not his wife Kate.
"Like most people, I have male and female friends and I'm not going to end my friendships just because I'm on TV," said Jon in a statement obtained by E! News.
"However, being out with them late at night showed poor judgment on my part. What makes me sick is that my careless behavior has put my family in this uncomfortable position. My family is the most important thing in my life and it kills me that these allegations have hurt them."
The alleged incident occurred on April 18 when the 32-year-old arrived at Legends Lounge, a club near the couple's home in Wernersville, PA, at 11:20PM and "could barely walk" by 2AM, Us Weeklyreported in a cover story report published in the magazine's May 11 issue.
Upon leaving the club's back entrance, Us reported that Jon could be heard yelling, "Hey, babe! Babe! Give me my jacket!" before climbing into his Nissan Nismo.
Since he apparently had just drawn unwanted attention to himself, Jon then reportedly "panicked" and urged the "female friend" to "get in the car!" before they sped away quickly, according to Us.
Kate was in Bellevue, WA promoting her new book, "Eight Little Faces: A Mom's Journey," at the time of the alleged incident, according to Us.
The alleged incident involving the "mystery woman" occurred a few weeks before TLC announced Jon & Kate Plus 8's fifth season will premiere on May 25.
TLC had announced Jon & Kate Plus 8'sfifth-season renewal earlier this month after the reality show's future had coming into question when its fourth-season finale in March featured Jon openly speculating whether or not he wanted to continue with the show for future seasons.
Jon's comments followed an alleged February incident in which he was seen partying with college girls at a Huntington, PA, bar that is located three hours away from the new $1.3 million home he and his family recently bought.
While at the bar, Jon reportedly met some girls from Juniata College -- who subsequently invited him to a house party where he played beer pong.
