TLC Tears Jon Gosselin a New One in Court

by at . Comments

As we could have predicted, the TLC brass is going off on Jon Gosselin in court, calling the reality TV dad's recent behavior a downright "embarrassment."

Edward Sabin, the network's chief executive, testified in TLC's breach of contract lawsuit against Jon, scoffing at Jon's conduct over the past few months.

Among the many examples of Jon's alleged misconduct?

Sabin ridiculed Jon's decision to host a pool party at the MGM Grand in Vegas a few months ago and says TLC even forbade him from doing so beforehand.

The reason? "Jon surrounded by scores of bikini-clad women is inconsistent with the image of our show." That and it was in violation of his contract. Details.

Jon Gets Possessed

We know. What a douchebag.

Continuing his dressing down of Jon, the TLC exec ripped him for hanging out by the fence outside of his house and chatting with celebrity gossip photographers.

That was something he did on a fairly routine basis. As was parading around with girlfriend Hailey Glassman, who he took on a trip to France over the summer.

On that trip, TLC alleges (and we're pretty sure they're correct), he met with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier and said his children would model a kids' line.

Lastly, and still significantly, Sabin called out Jon for breaking his contract with TLC by accepting money for interviews, which he did a lot. Like nightly for awhile.

Jon Gosselin was a no-show when the proceedings got underway, but he's expected to show up for the afternoon session a bit later. Updates to come if he does.
