We knew it was only a matter of time before TLC sued Jon Gosselin for violating the terms of his exclusive contract. Now the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star will be fighting a squeeze of legal battles on two fronts – with estranged wife Kate Gosselin as the rock and TLC as the hard place.
TLC has filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Jon Gosselin in Maryland this week, accusing the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star of multiple contract violations. TLC alleges Jon Gosselin made paid and unpaid TV appearances without the prior approval of the network. The network is also accusing him of harming the show “with his constant criticisms” about the series.
“The network has been trying privately and patiently for months to get Jon to honor the contract he signed and to comply with his obligations relating to public appearances and statements,” a representative for TLC said in a press statement. “Those efforts have been unsuccessful.” TLC is reportedly seeking to force Jon Gosselin to abide by the terms of his contract and to return any money earned from making unapproved television appearances.
Jon Gosselin’s attorney, Mark Heller, told People on Friday he had not yet seen any legal documents from TLC. “I can’t comment on something I haven’t seen. Jon hasn’t been served yet, either,” he said.Â Â Â
Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, may be slapping her soon-to-be ex-husband with even more legal tangles soon. Gosselin said in a statement Thursday she is “disturbed” by statements from former babysitter (and alleged Jon Gosselin lover) Stephanie Santoro saying Jon Gosselin admitted to taking money from Kate and has been hacking her e-mails, bank accounts and phone records.
“Ms. Gosselin is carefully considering all of her legal options regarding this matter, and she will pursue them if and when the time is right,” Kate Gosselin’s attorney said in a press statement.

Get new, strong passwords, Kate.
Dumbest man in America! With 8 kids, he should have kept his pecker in his pants and got counseling. That’s some child support for your ass!!!!!!!!! Hasn’t he heard the phrase it’s cheaper to keep her. In this case it was detrimental. Alimony, in addition of being sued by the network? We may just see Jon on the side of the road under a bridge holding a sign “will work for food” with a cardboard box. Again, dumbest man in America.

Just plain dumb!
With 8 kids did we really think Hailey Glassman was going to actually be serious about him? Tooooo much baggage!
Jonboy’s legal eagle better read the definition of a binding contract if he thinks the agreement with TLC is “unenforceable”…the presence of legal counsel isn’t a requirement for a binding contract.
Jon was a nothing when he married Kate and eventually turned into a babysitter and help mate once they both signed with TLC. How does he think he can possibly get a job where he can contribute towards the support of 8 children and an EX-wife. As soon as he violates the Order of Support, Kate will have his backside thrown into jail for Violation of the Order of Support. Jon is going to pay dearly for his past actions. Kate, on the otherhand, has fulfilled all her contractual obligations to TLC, conducted herself as a loving mother and classy lady. She deserves so much more than a slug like Jon.
he is an idiot. she is an ugly white woman
