BFFs, HollywoodLife.com spoke with Jon Gosselin’s leadership coach Dr. Sylvia Lafair, minutes after she hung up with Jon. She tells us that Jon completely denies extorting his ex-wife Kate Gosselin for money and that he NEVER filed a claim with Child Protective Services!

Jon Gosselin is “devastated,” says his leadership coach, Dr. Sylvia Lafair, over the accusations made by his ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman, 23 — that he extorted his ex-wife Kate Gosselin for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

We told you earlier today that RadarOnline.com spoke with Hailey, who alleges that Jon, 33, would often call Kate, 35, on speakerphone and threaten to go to authorities with proof that she was an unfit parent and had abused their 9-year-old daughter Mady. But Jon’s leadership coach and President of The Country Place Retreat in PA, Dr. Lafair says after speaking with Jon, she can tell HollywoodLife.com that this is completely untrue.

“Jon has moved on and he hasn’t spoken with Hailey in well over a year,” says Dr. Lafair. “Claims with CPS were never filed, and there is no CPS in PA, it’s called Children and Youth Services. Jon is very saddened and frustrated because he is working in the best interests of his children. These are incendiary statements made by someone who Jon had a brief relationship with a long time ago.”

Sylvia is absolutely right in at least one aspect of this drama. The organization in PA that acts as CPS is called the Office of Children Youth and Families. In the state of PA you are able to either go directly to this office or you can call a local hotline anonymously called ChildLine and report a parent.

But Dr. Lafair goes on to tell HollywoodLife.com that Jon does NOT want his children to be on either of Kate’s new TLC reality shows, Kate Plus 8 or, Twist of Kate!

“Jon wants his children to have a camera-free and undocumented life,” Dr. Lafair reveals adamantly. “He wants his kids to live and have the kind of normalcy that kids need. He doesn’t want his kids to come to him when they are teens or adults and say he didn’t try to protect their privacy. This is one of the things he wants to do. He wants to protect his children and he is in the process of trying to figure out how to do that, but that’s all I can tell you right now.”

We reached out to Kate lawyer Cheryl Young who told HollywoodLife.com “no comment.”
