Rumored Gosselin gal pal quits Star job

Star magazine said Thursday its reporter, Kate Major, who is rumored to be dating U.S. reality television star Jon Gosselin, has quit her job.

Star Senior Reporter Kate Major resigned this morning, Thursday, July 23, citing a conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin, said a statement posted on the tabloid's Web site.

Usmagazine.com said Major had dinner with the star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 Saturday in Manhattan and then again Wednesday night in the Hamptons.

The Gosselins, who are the parents of eight children, recently announced they separated and plan to divorce.

Reality television personality Jill Zarin told Usmagazine.com she thinks Jon Gosselin's blossoming romance with Major is authentic.

I think it's fast. I think it happened very quickly, said Zarin, who dined with the couple Wednesday.

Gosselin reportedly confirmed last week he was dating 22-year-old Hailey Glassman. He has not commented on reports he is now romantically involved with Major.
