Kate Gosselin was accompanied by someone other than her eight children during a recent outing in Philadelphia. On Tuesday night, the “Kate Plus 8” star was seen out and about with her rumored millionaire boyfriend, Jeff Prescott.
The 40-year-old TLC reality star was reportedly seen getting picked up by Jeff, 51, outside of her home in Wernersville, Pennsylvania, on the evening of May 12, according to ET Online. The rumored couple then drove to Talula’s Garden, an American cuisine restaurant in Philadelphia’s Washington Square. Photos of their alleged date night show Kate laughing and Jeff perusing the establishment’s menu.
Later that night, the pair was seen getting cozy, and even sharing a few kisses, at a nearby casino. “The reality star and the wealthy entrepreneur spent the night gambling, partying and getting close at the tables,” reported ET. The site's report also included a candid shot of Jeff, a divorced dad of three, putting his arm around Kate.
Kate was first rumored to be dating Jeff in January. The couple reportedly met in October 2014 while Kate was in New York filming the 2015 season of Donald Trump’s NBC series “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Shortly after the dating rumors came to light, Kate denied having a relationship with the Dreamstime.com mogul. “I get it. Everyone wants me to be dating. I hear it loud and clear," she told People. "It just doesn’t happen that easily, but I want it just as much as everyone else does."
Jeff spoke out about his relationship with Kate a few weeks later, telling Radar Online he was merely forming a business parternship with the mom of eight. “Kate is a great candidate for a business leader and a good mom,” he said. “She’s really smart.”
Kate and her eight kids she shares with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, 14-year-old twins Cara and Mady, and 11-year-old sextuplets Leah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Alexis and Jill, will return for a special birthday episode of “Kate Plus 8” in June on TLC. The family’s last episode, a Mother’s Day special, aired on the network on May 10.
