Jon and Kate Gosselin
A "profoundly disturbed" Kate Gosselin says she is considering legal action after a former babysitter claimed that Jon Gosselin bragged about hacking into his wife's emails, phone records and online bank accounts.

"Kate Gosselin has heard the allegations made by Stephanie Santoro that Jon Gosselin 'hacked' into her e-mails, phone and online accounts, and she is profoundly disturbed by them," read a statement released by her law firm, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis. "Under the circumstances, Ms. Gosselin is carefully considering all of her legal options regarding this matter, and she will pursue them if and when the time is right."
Santoro, Jon Gosselin's former nanny, told Radar Online that the father of eight "pretty much hacked into everything of Kate's that he had access to." Santoro, 23, also said Jon Gosselin had been planning to financially harm his estranged wife for a while. "He told me that he had enough there that when the ball dropped he would have enough to completely screw her over," she said.
On Tuesday, a Pennsylvania judge ordered Jon to return $180,000 he removed from his and Kate's joint bank account in violation of an arbitrator's order, according to her lawyer.
Jon Gosselin plans to "continue on television"
Meanwhile, Jon Gosselin's camp says Santoro is lying. "I spoke with him today concerning this statement made by Stephanie and he unequivocally told me that he's never illegally invaded Kate's electronic privacy in any way," his attorney, Mark Jay Heller, told People. "He also finds it a little disappointing that Kate would give credence to an uncorroborated statement made by an individual who clearly has a motivation to tell stories about Jon that might result in financial [compensation]."
