Reality TV star Kate Gosselin has filed a lawsuit accusing her ex-husband, Jon, of stealing her hard drive and hacking into her phone and computer to get material for a tell-all book.

The federal lawsuit says he took the material for a book called “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.”

The suit, filed Monday in Philadelphia, says the book was written by her ex-husband’s friend, tabloid writer Robert Hoffman, but has since been pulled from Amazon because the material was obtained illegally.

She lives in Sinking Spring, while he lives in Wyomissing. Both are in Berks County, outside Philadelphia.
