These pictures tell a worrying story! Take a look at them and tell us, do you think the bodyguard took the pics of Kate?

Uh-oh! Has Kate Gosselin‘s bodyguard and rumored lover Steve Nield overstepped the boundaries of his position? It’s his job to protect Kate and her eight kids against intruders, including paparazzi, but could he actually be the one who took the photos of Kate in a bikini in Australia and sold them to photo agencies? And did he do it with Kate’s approval?

Just looking at the railing in these photos, and you can see that the pics were taken from the same balcony that Steve was sitting on. Either he is a lousy bodyguard who can’t chase a way a paparazzo, or he is the one who took the photos! And does it seem weird that Kate was sucking in her stomach while she lay out in her bikini — maybe she knew she was being photographed!

According to a fan site, the resort that Kate and her kids stayed at has very expensive rates and a pretty exclusive list. “There’s no way REAL paps would ever be able to afford it,” The Grapevine notes. Rooms at the Mooloolaba Beach Resort (located about an hour north of Brisbane) start at $550 a night for a two-bedroom suite during off-season, but it’s the middle of summer in Australia now, so it’s even more pricey, and weekend rates reach as high as $2,200 a night!

“I bet all along Steve has been taking photos of Kate with her permission and selling the photos and splitting the proceeds with Kate,” a reader of The Grapevine shares.

Wow, doesn’t this whole scenario seem a bit off? And it appears that guests at the resort were not happy with Kate and her crew being there. “Thanks to an Aussie who’s family stayed at the resort at the same time, we learned that Kate acted like a total bitch/diva,” the site claims. “The kids are cute, and the TLC crew wrecked havoc on the property traipsing about, filming, without a care for the experience of the other guests!”
