The former ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8′ star is accused of grabbing her kids by their hair and beating them with a wooden spoon — when they were just babies! Read on for the shocking details.

Kate Gosselin was never known for her warm demeanor on the TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8, but a new book is alleging that her parenting was more than strict — it was downright abusive.

“She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers,” reporter Robert Hoffman told Star magazine. He claims he found secret journals that Kate used to write her books Multiple Bles8ings and EightLittle Faces. 

Robert says the journals detailed how she constantly used a wooden spoon to hit her children, and would even grab them by their hair.

“I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence,” he told the magazine.

One instance in particular he found shocking — when the kids helped themselves to M&Ms without asking, Kate flew off the handle.

“I really, really lost it! I pulled Collin up by the hair, and I spanked them so hard!” she allegedly wrote.

After Colin threw a tantrum another time, Kate reportedly went on another rage.

“I sent him to his crib and whipped him into it very hard…I never felt that I may really seriously injure a child, but today was that day.”

Robert’s upcoming book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, details more of the shocking allegations.
