Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin is not having a good week. First comes news TLC is considering suing Gosselin for appearing on Larry King Live in violation of his contract. Next comes the rumor 23-year-old Hailey Glassman has finally dumped him!
The shit really started hitting the fan when TLC made the announcement that Jon &Â Kate Plus 8 would be renamed as Kate Plus 8 and focus on Kate Gosselin’s role as a single mother of eight kids starting in November. Jon Gosselin responded by issuing legal threats to TLC and demanding all production on Jon & Kate Plus 8 be shut down immediately. Supposedly because he felt his kids were being treated badly by TLC, not because of that pesky loss of income.
“Jon is resolved not to allow the TLC corporate machine to devour his family and promote the monster’s best interests over those of his family,” Gosselin’s lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, said Thursday in a statement.
To vent his rage against the network he calls a “monster,” Jon Gosselin took his grievances to Larry King Live on Thursday night. However, Jon Gosselin is still under exclusive contract with TLC and did not have ‘permission’ to do the gig. So now TLC is considering suing his ass.
And if that isn’t enough drama in the Gosselins saga for one week,Â rumor hasÂ it Jon Gosselin’s girlfriend Hailey Glassman has dumped him! Gosselin hinted at the breakup on Larry King Live by saying Glassman would stand behind him “whether we’re together or not.” Glassman posted on her Twitter feed that “Its time 2 move on… No matter what I will always be there for Jon.Whether we are together or just friends,he will always have my family and my support.â€ Glassman’s rep told Access Hollywood the rumor is untrue and Gosselin and Glassman are still together. But frankly, we’re just not really buying it anymore.
Well, since Kate Gosselin is already in the works for a new talk show, if this spells the end of the TLC series, she’ll still be riding high – and milking her ‘struggle’ for every penny she can gleefully get. As for Jon Gosselin, he’s out a job and allegedly a girlfriend. Not all that surprising he is now trying to put the brakes on his divorce from Kate…
