TLC-Your Ass in Court: Jon Gosselin Sued For Breach of Contract By Network

by at . Comments

Jon Gosselin hasn't played by the rules as an exclusive employee of TLC, the network alleges, accusing the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad of appearing on other shows for pay and making unauthorized disclosures about the TLC show.

As a result, the King of Pimps is being sued for breach of contract.

The lawsuit, filed today in Maryland's Circuit Court of Montgomery County, says that in June, in recognition of "the Gosselins' difficult personal circumstances," TLC asked both to refrain from making public statements about each other.

A 'cooling off' period was negotiated and was supposed to have put a lid on Jon for at least 45 days. But he went on to appear regularly on ET, The Insider and other shows to discuss life, the show, Kate being an abusive monster, etc.

The suit also accuses Jon of selling photographic rights to various celebrity gossip magazines and other media outlets, also in violation of Jon's TLC contract.

Moreover, dude didn't show up for work September 24 as required, even given six days' notice. Hey, he's got things to see and mediocre girls to do, okay?

Just when you think Jon Gosselin can't become even more of a mess ...

The suit is seeking from Gosselin unspecified compensatory damages and demanding he return income gained as a result of his breaches of the agreement.

TLC also wants him to shut the g*d d*mn h*ll up going forward. They didn't use that language, but believe us, that's the message they're trying to send.

"The network has been trying privately and patiently for months to get Jon to honor the contract he signed and to comply with obligations relating to public appearances and statements," TLC said. "Those efforts have been unsuccessful."

Team Jon had no immediate comment.

Earlier this month, it was announced that the show would be renamed Kate Plus 8 and feature little-to-no Jon. He responded by taking legal action to stop TLC from filming his eight kids for the show, citing an "epiphany" that it's bad for them.

Complete BS as that may be, TLC no choice but to comply and announced that the show will stop filming new episodes next month. Its future is up in the air.

I dont get why Kate has to be labeled as Money Hungry. Everybody on TV gets paid. If they were poor, why not agree to do a show? I grew up poor & not on TV & my life is currently a struggle. My father cheated on my mother (a VERY common occurrance since most men cheat) and when I was a teen she'd had enough & left. Before her departure, we (their 5 children) found out ALOT of disturbing facts & situations that my mom had suffered thru (in silence) in the name of 'keeping her family together'. I think the impact to the eight babies will be no more dramatic than everyday people who learn the UGLY truth about a parent. I wish men were more GOD fearing & honest. Steve Harvey's book admits that most men cheat & most women do not.

Payback is a bltch Jonny boy! It was Kate who snagged this generous job with TLC to support the family. You couldn't (loser). You even quit your job to "help" Kate at home, aka being a bum. Now where's your power boy? So, how are you planning to support your children, alimony, plus your bachlor pads, 2 pricey cars, etc etc... bend over putz.

OK Wait! TLC is filing a lawsuit against Kate when? Cuz even tho this idiot should just go away, so should she, and she has been running off at the mouth plenty. The first bit about money missing came from her in her teary eyed interview on the View. She got paid for being a host on the View. So there are two instances where she must have been in violation of her contract w/ TLC. She may not be as guilty as he is, but for heaven's sake, does TLC really think we give a rat's bum about her without the kids and the fighting, etc, that they would need to suck her hole in order to keep her happy to do another show with them. Let's not take a channel that thinks it's teaching the world a thing or two and let them be hyprocrits.
