KATE Gosselin has not made a post on social media in over five months, as the reality star continues to shy away from the public eye.
While the reality star has been in headlines multiple times in recent months, her last Instagram post was shared on October 2, 2019.
Now fans have been left wondering whether the former TLC star is retreating from the limelight, following her custody battle with ex Jon Gosselin and her firing from TLC.
Her last Instagram post saw her showing love to her daughters Mady and Cara as she wrote: “I love these kids fiercely.. and I don’t apologize for my tears.
“Times have been so tough and so needlessly unfair for them. Despite it all, they’ve turned out to be such wonderful amazing human beings.”
She continued: “I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for each of them once they get away from those who have tried to destroy them versus protect them! #KatePlus8 @tlc.”
One fan recently commented: “She hasnt posted in 5 months…defunct instagram account.”
While another added: “Why isnt she posting anymore? Does this mean the show is never coming back…”
Last month it was revealed that Kate had been fired from her TLC show, Kate Plus 8.
During a December 19 hearing at which a judge found her in contempt of court for filming her and Jon’s underage kids for a TLC special without his permission, according to Radar Online.
A source divulged: “Kate stated in court that TLC has terminated their relationship with her.”
She was reportedly let go after allowing her 15-year-olds Alexis, Aaden, Joel and Leah to be filmed for the October 2019 Kate Plus 8 special, despite a judge previously mandating she first receive permission from their father.
After divorcing Jon in 2009, Kate allegedly has sole physical custody of the four teens but shares legal custody with him.
There were no issues with Mady and Cara being in the program because they’re both 19 and able to make filming decisions for themselves.
As for Hannah and Collin, both 15, Jon has custody of the two of them and they were not in the special.
The mom of eight also reportedly filmed the special without the necessary permits.
The Pennsylvania Bureau of Labor Law Compliance denied the documents, stating: “There are serious questions about whether Kate Gosselin has the legal authority to agree to have her children filmed as part of this reality television program.”
Once Jon got wind of what happened, he took Kate to court over the breach of the judge’s orders, which was apparently enough for TLC to cut ties with the longtime member of its family.
Aside from being fired and being found in contempt, the reality star was also forced to pay Jon a fine of $1,500.
Kate’s relationship with TLC began when her reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 moved from Discovery Health to TLC in 2008.
She’s had various shows and specials on the network, including Kate Plus 8 and Sextuplets Turn 10, in the years since.
Meanwhile, Jon claims Kate currently has “no contact” with her 15-year-old son Colin and is no longer an active part of his life.
The former reality star, who has custody of 15-year-olds Collin and Hannah, made the allegation while opening up about his eight kids and ex-wife on Alec Lace’s First Class Fatherhood podcast.
