Millionaire businessman Jeff Prescott has a unique, alleged relationship with Kate Gosselin. Ahead of the premiere of her new show, Kate Plus Date, which was to focus on her dating life as a single mom to eight kids, Kate claimed she was never in a serious relationship with Jeff or anyone since her divorce.
Jeff later claimed that wasn't the case, and that the pair was even talking about a future together. Regardless, the couple broke up some time ago.
Again, this is a relationship Kate has kept quiet, but it does seem she was linked to bodyguard Steve Nelid from roughly 2007 to 2014.
Steve was hired to be a bodyguard for Jon & Kate Plus 8, and he continued that line of work into Kate Plus 8. Jon Gosselin has said that while he only has speculations about their relationship, the two spending time together did bother him.
