Jon Gosselin Slams Brakes on Divorce and New ‘Kate Plus 8’ Show

Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin has slammed the brakes on both his divorce from estranged wife Kate Gosselin and production of the TLC reality show. The legal drama comes in the wake of an announcement from TLC earlier this week proclaiming Jon & Kate Plus 8 would be re-launching in November as just Kate Plus 8 – minus the Jon.


Apparently Jon Gosselin is seriously pissed at being dumped from the TLC reality show in favor of retooling the series to focus on Kate Gosselin and her ‘struggle’ as a rich, impeccably dressed single mom of eight kids. Jon Gosselin’s lawyer reportedly sent a nasty “cease and desist” letter to TLC stating: “Effective immediately no production crews are to enter Jon Gosselin’s family home for any reason. In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authority to effectuate Police action against any trespassers.”

Not only has Jon Gosselin put a halt to production of the new Kate Plus 8 show, he’s also filed a delay in his divorce from Kate Gosselin. Lawyer Mark Jay Heller stated Jon “realized his family was like a train wreck, so he decided to put the brakes on the divorce and on the show … because if he didn’t the family would be in a mortal accident … the victims of a train wreck.”

Even better, Jon Gosselin is allegedly claiming his children have been forced to work in violation of Pennsylvania Child Labor Law and have not been paid for their work for four years. Jon Gosselin’s attorney states his client has not given consent to allow his children to continue working for TLC and “is prepared to seek Court intervention to make sure his children’s best interests are protected.”

Hmmm. Sounds kind of noble on the surface, until you think about the fact that Jon Gosselin didn’t come out with any of this stuff about his kids needing protecting until after he was basically fired from TLC and likely found himself in a panic over how he’s going to support his swanky new expensive bachelor lifestyle.

Jon Gosselin is scheduled to appear on Larry King Live Wednesday night on CNN at 9pm. We’re sure he’ll have lots of awesome explanations and accusations to entertain viewers with.

  1. I used to watch the show thinking, “Wow. 8 kids. So glad that’s not my life.” But it was still entertaining.

    Now I think, “Wow. Screwed up people. So glad that’s not my life.” Which is not entertaining to watch.

  2. Kate will you at least buy jon a monkey and a tin cup he has become such a piece of work…with no work so please a monkey would be great!!!!!!

  3. I think that everyone that keeps slamming both Jon and kate is contributing to the destruction of this family and forgetting what is the most important of assets between the 2 of them. I don’t agree with a lot of the things that the both of them have done. They are both have their faults in the marraige..but one thing is for sure. They were a lot happier before they first began filming Jon and Kate plus 8. Fame and fortune have gone to both of their heads causing them to think more about being rich rather than being the proper parents God intended them to be for their 8 children. Money is truely the root of all evil. We do need it to survive but when it comes to putting money first above God and you’re family, that is a sad sad thing! Also the stress of living a very public life, dealing with the pavarotti hot on their heels no matter where they are has put a tremendous strain on them both. Kate seems to not mind the pavarotti as much as Jon but I’m sure there are times when it really annoys the living heck out of her. My opinion is that they need a redo list of priorities. They need to refocus and pull this family back to full circle and God should be at the very center of this circle. Then they need to forgive each other. The Bible tells us that in order for God to forgive us, we need to forgive each other. I know it may be hard with all the hurtful things they have said about each other, but with God all things are possible and if they work hard enough, and let God lead them..they can work things out and be happy again. I think that even though it seemed as if the sextuplets didn’t really seem to care about their parents splitting up, I really believe they are too young to truely understand what is going on exactly. They are just busy doing what kids to best and that is being kids. I think that they would love to see their mom and dad work things out and to be together again as a family. I just wish people would stop trashing them both and stop trying to help push them apart rather than encouraging them to put their family back together. They both need support but not the kind that adds fuel to the fire of heading for a finalized divorce. We need to encourage them to rekendal the fire that caused them to fall in love in the first place!!! I will keep praying for them and their family!!!!

  4. I feel sorry for kate and the kids, jon is pulling their livly hood from them yet what job is he working to support his family and can he get a job that can support them and send them all to college? Right now this all works for them, but jon is being vindictive because he was fired and now he won’t let anyone be filed. He proubly had enough of the photographers following him around and tell on everything he was doing. so he figured he would take everyone off the show and then the photographers would leave him alone…. He is being selfish, and I don’t see how he is going to be able to support those beautiful kids. kate is doing the right thing, I am behind her all the way….. If he wont’ let you have a job then let him pay child support and lamoney… see where he will be living after having to pay that….. and will his girlfriend want to be living in a box in NY city with him I don’t think so….

  5. Personally, I think Jon and Kate’s kids are obnoxious, spoiled and run wild on the best of days. They are mouthy and disrespectful, and never are grateful for anything! They learned it from their selfish spoiled parents! I am not glad the family fell apart, but let’s stop acting like they are all just poor little angels. I’m glad the show is going off, because those little brats got enough to last two lifetimes for the time they were exploited and shoved down our throats. Good Riddance.
