Jon Gosselin is reeling after the October 21 arrest of William Blankinship; an editor for his family’s reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, who’s being charged with 10 counts of sexually exploiting a minor.
It’s news that he and other members of the TLC crew “never expected” to hear, but now, Jon tells Star that he’s ready to take legal action to protect his children – 10-year-old twins Cara and Mady, and 7-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel.
“I have contacted an attorney and I’m trying to gather all the information from the authorities in North Carolina to see if there is any evidence he has footage of our family or if he has distributed it,” Gosselin tells the magazine.
Though at the time of the interview, he hadn’t yet discussed his plans with ex-wife Kate, Jon says that he is going to contact her.
“I will write her an email because I feel this is going to explode, because it is so bad,” claims Gosselin, who says that his first priority is to find out what footage was seen by Blankinship, and whether or not he passed that footage along to others.
“Of course we filmed potty training,” says Jon. “Any parent would be freaked out by this, because the cameraman definitely shot the kids getting ready for bed being showered and being changed.”
