Tabloid reports say yes, but she's denying it.
Last week, everyone was talking about Jon Gosselin's alleged affair with a schoolteacher.
This week, it's Kate's turn.
"The next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family," Kate tells People magazine exclusively. "Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified."
"These are people who absolutely love us and want to see us through to the end," Kate says of the bodyguard and his family. "Of course, both of them travel with us at times, and we've spent holidays together, because, in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team ... they're the only people you have left. And now they're coming under fire."
She continues: "I'm totally panicking, and thinking, 'We are going to lose our last set of friends.' I keep calling them, begging, 'Seriously, I'm so sorry. Don't run away from us.' They keep saying, 'We're fine, we're fine.' But they have paparazzi in front of their house. It's so upsetting."
She says her friends and extended family didn't sign up for this. "We willingly made a conscious decision to put this out there," she says, referring to being on the TV show. "Our friends and family did not. I had no idea we would potentially take down the people that we love around us. It's like saying, 'Thanks for your support, let me sic the paparazzi on you.' It's very very difficult. It leaves us, essentially, alone and friendless. It's terrible."
Kate says she's scared. "The scary thing for me is [the tabloids] are going to take information and create a story," she tells People. "It's a matter of, 'When will they stop?' They're going to keep going, and they'll make up stuff to connect the dots."
The upcoming issue of People hits newsstands Friday.
