Some of you have asked me to share Angela/Robert Hoffman emails that he sent me in the months of 2011. The following is part of an email he sent me in response to me asking him who he thought was the better parent, Jon or Kate. I thought about blacking out Ellen's name as she is out of the picture now, but you all know who Jon was with at the time. Please, keep in mind these are Hoffman's words and there is no proof that what he is saying about Ellen is really the truth.
Hi, back from baseball.
Sorry, I wasn't asking your name, I guess I mis-worded that. Probably better that you don't tell me so I'm not on the shortlist if you get outed. Several months ago, you must have stirred something up about Jon and he was beside himself trying to find out who you were.
Please understand that I'm fair regarding Jon and Kate. I'm close to him but I could just as easily be close to her. Unfortunately, she doesn't trust anyone associated with Jon, and I don't blame her for this. How about we say anything that I email to you remains between us and vice versa unless we agree otherwise. I like Kate. I respect her drive. I don't agree with many, many, many things she has done that the public knows nothing about but who cares what I think. I don't agree with things she's done to her kids but again, nobody should judge someone until they've walked in their shoes. The kids are well provided for. I like Jon a lot but if you asked me for my opinion, having been around this family, including Kate, for the past several years, who I thought should have custody of the kids, I would say Kate, no question. Not that she's a better parent all though she may well be, but because she's able to better provide for them and the people she has watching the kids, for the most part, are wonderful with them. It was heartbreaking to see Judy leave. She was let go by Kate. Kate no longer trusted her. Kate thought Judy was selling stories to the media, which I know to be not true. The stories were being sold by Jon and Ellen, from information given to them by the twins unknowingly. This is another reason I'm speaking to you. They're using those poor children to get information on Kate and sell to the tabloids.
Here's a sure-fire tell when you see a story released. If it comes from hollywoodlife.com and hollybabble, it came from Jon and Ellen. Cloe Melas came down here in the Summer of 2009 and made a few connections, but it really wasn't until 2010 when Ellen got involved. Ellen and Chloe talk constantly and Ellen sells the stories, with Jon's full permission. They try the big outlets first of course, to get the most money they can, but ultimately, it ends up on Hollywoodlife because nobody else is interested anymore and Jon has lied so many times that even if he's telling the truth, how can you believe him.
I'm Jon's friend but I know he lies to me. Kate once said that Jon listens to whoever is next to him. That couldn't be more true. His undoing came when he ended up in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan who introduced him to the Hellers. They put these big ideas in his head about how he was the real star and he should do this and do that. That was the first and worst bad decision he made.
