After the news broke that reality TV editor William Blankinship was arrested for possession of child pornography, former “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star Jon Gosselin feared what else Blankinship might possess.

In an interview with Star magazine (with excerpts available from Radar Online), Gosselin revealed that he’s already trying to find out what the editor, who worked directly with footage of the “Plus 8,” might have.

“I have contacted an attorney, and I’m trying to gather all the information from the authorities in North Carolina to see if there is any evidence he has footage of our family or if he has distributed it,” Gosselin told the magazine.

The sort of footage that is of particular concern to Gosselin would consist of innocent images in the eyes of any parent, but given the context of Blankinship’s arrest, could take on a much less innocent angle.

“Of course we filmed potty training,” he said. “Any parent would be freaked out by this, because the cameraman definitely shot the kids getting ready for bed, being showered and being changed.”

For now, the father of multiples has yet to reach out to his ex-wife, Kate, but he said he intends to soon.

“I will write her an email because I feel this is going to explode, because it is so bad,” he stated in the interview.

Days ago, Figure 8 Films, who contracted Blankinship for “Plus 8” and other TLC shows, issued a statement insisting the editor never had contact with the children.

"At no time was this man ever in the field or in direct contact with any of the talent for any of our productions,” the statement read.
