TLC sues the pants off Jon Gosselin

October 16th, 2009 // 72 Comments

After essentially drowning their Asian cash cows, TLC has filed a lawsuit against Jon Gosselin for breach of contract and they literally plan on suing him into the poor house, according to RadarOnline. The network wants all the money he’s made off unauthorized interviews, paparazzi deals, etc. and plans to nail Jon with all their attorney fees as well:

A RadarOnline.com investigation has uncovered shocking facts behind the lawsuit TLC filed against Jon Friday for breach of contract. TLC already knows Jon has been paid for media appearances and every penny will come out in the lawsuit. The paydays are in violation of his contract with the network, which has a clearly defined exclusivity clause.
That contract is valid until February 2010, even though the show is no longer filming. In addition, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that TLC has an option to renew Jon’s contract once it expires, thereby keeping him from doing projects on any other network.
Jon’s negative public comments also violate his contact and the network is seeking damages against him and Jon will also be on the hook for TLC’s attorney’s fees if the network wins in court. TLC is represented by Williams and Connolly, out of Washington D.C. They are widely regarded as one of the top firms in the country and have a reputation for digging up every damaging fact about their opponents.
Jon also has a morals clause in his contract RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. His boozing and behavior could also be dragged into the lawsuit. TLC’s contract with Jon prohibits him from revealing details from his contract, badmouthing the network, and making money from other outlets.

Anyone else feel like a small child being read a soothing bedtime story and all is right in the world or is that just me?

  2. v

    good shit.

  3. I kinda feel for him, Kate is a huge gigantic bitch and treated him like one of the children. He is getting a lot of heat… but hes FINALLY standing up for himself! His children are not going to get hurt financially from any of this…

  4. Dutch

    I really hope this ends soon, like 5 months ago soon.

  5. Kate is a bitch but Jon is a huge douche

    haaahaaaaahaaahaaaaaaahahaaaaaaa
    I cannot believe how funny I think this is?????!!!!!! Did he really think he was calling the shots???!! ever??!!! I have always thought he was the biggest tool ever and now even TLC isn’t going to take his passive aggressive shit. Soooo funnyyyyyy Ya Jon you really got Kate!!!! hhaaahahahahahahahah

    Who was advising this guy? Why couldn’t he just keep his mouth shut and keep the money train running. He’s been so douchey lately, I’m almost glad TLC is pulling out all their guns.

  7. D4P

    They can take his money, but they’ll have to pry the ATV from his cold, dead hands.

    Whatever happens to you Jon, you are still one of the hottest men alive and you can sit on my face and let me rim that hot, tight asshore of yours anytime, and use my navel as your ashtray and jizz recipient. I would jack off while shoving my tongue deep inside your hole, blow my own load, the mix your cigarette ashes, your sweet man juce and mine and make it into a smoothie. I love you so much. That’s what I would do to show it to you. Fuck you are HOT!

  9. Dr Fill

    The good news is that The Superficial has 8 “fuck ups in training.” Those kids are SO hosed at this point…

  10. Mckinzzzz

    ABOUT FREAKIN’ TIME!!!!!

  11. Beakmania

    Holy hell, does anyone remember when TLC actually meant “THE LEARNING CHANNEL” and they played awesome shit like Beakman’s World?

    But now, it’s all about showing who the greatest freak in the universe is. TLC IS THE REAL ENEMY. Someone tell Sinead.

  12. OhBoy

    I hope this guy gets reamed so badly that every suicidal loser currently walking the earth exclaims thank god I’m not Jon Gosselin.

  13. J P

    TLC TCL whatever should get shot in teh face and die. Worthless subhuman scum. Kate can blow me.

  14. JustARumor

    I hear being the loser taking it up the butt in a lawsuit orchestrated by a huge corporation will make that loser very very horny.

  15. jimmy c

    she loves dog weenie

  16. Parker

    Hahahahaha

    As a member of the public who’s been subjected to his dumbass antics I am willing to testify on behalf of TLC and can categorically state under oath that this douchebag has made and continues to make the TLC network look like a bunch of idiots in the eyes of the public even by his sheer existence.

    Then I would like to sign an exclusive contract with TLC to have anal sex with Kate on her new cooking show called, “Who wants a Sandwich! I do. I do.”
    On the show I would have anal sex with her and afterwards she would run onto the set, smile for the camera, and make me a turkey sandwich which she would als heat up in a toaster oven before putting on a little mayo and delivering it to me. Then she’d go home to her kids, I would eat my sandwich, then I’d take my check to the bank and cash it.

  17. Good got man, I cant fit that shit in me moupht!

    “Anyone else feel like a small child being read a soothing bedtime story and all is right in the world or is that just me?”

    YES.

  19. HA ha ha, The only Plus 8 Jon is going to see is 8 inch of dick up his ass when the law firm of Williams, Connolly and Bendover take him court..

  20. Zeezy

    Does that mean the girlfriend has to give back the Porsche?

  21. What the fuck took them so long!?

    Goodbye, good luck and good riddens!

  22. Frank

    Wow. He’s made some bad decisions, but damn. I feel for him. TLC will come out on top and his life is gonna be ruined financially. Even though Kate has money and can take of the children, the kids still need their dad. Financially, he’s not going to be able to provide for him. Damn. Poor dude. I hope he bounces back.

  23. Andie

    It’s ‘good riddance’ you idiot. My God.

    That said, Jon is a supreme douche. I can’t believe how grown people act sometimes. Yeah, did he really think he was in control of ANY of this? I know he’s trying to grow a pair, but give me a break.
    Screw city hall, you can’t fight a network television station!

    You may be borderline illiterate, JustJess, but I do agree with you opinion.

  24. Kelsey

    A morality clause? That’s hilariously ironic.

  25. Lucy

    “They can take his money, but they’ll have to pry the ATV from his cold, dead hands.”

    hahahha

    Well said, my son.

  26. Asciigurl

    I think karma will get Jon Gosselin in the end. I can’t believe I used to root for that guy! He could have had everybody on his side if he’d just played his cards right. Alas, now if he loses the law suit, that’s just less money in the general funds for financially supporting all those kids.

    (Beakmania — I mourn with you. TLC has gone the way of MTV, neither playing anything near what was originally intended. I suppose Cartoon Network doesn’t do just cartoons anymore either, but that’s hardly as much of a crime.)

  27. Time's Up

    Wow, The Truman Show is coming to life!

  28. cc

    Just you? Not in the least.

    The day I see this shit standing on a street corner with a cup in his hand is the day I know there is a god.

  29. kingofbeer

    hey Jon… You’re about to be fucked… go on take the money and run :) whooo whooo go on take the money and run.. whooo whooo go on take the money and run…

    TLC is as bad as the Gosselins. They should rename the Show: “Bitch & Loser + 8: How TLC with the Guideance of Satan Destroys the Lives of Innocent Children”. Who sues TLC on behalf of the kids? Hello, State of PA!!!

  32. Dan

    TLC is going to take back the atv he bought for his daughter. Ruh roh! This guy is fucked! I know that law firm, they’re relentless. This guy is going to have practically nothing. I’m pretty sure they can’t just automatically renew his contract without his say so though

  33. Octomom

    Jon The Hot will win the 2010 porn award.

  34. bobby_says

    weeeee heeeeee heeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!
    (why does this news make me SO happy?)

  35. miguel prado

    Seriously, look at his eyes. Is he mildly retarded?

  36. Joblo

    TSK, TSK, TSK. All that money and NO STYLE! He just buys designer clothing but he can’t properly wear clothes, he looks a mess. John Gosselien- Stuck on life’s worst dressed list.

    I thought TLC meant tender loving care. WTH.

  38. The indoctrination of Rough

    Oh theyre going to bankrupt him,TLC got a lot of ballz! haven’t they made billions of this nauseating show…what happen to the “queen” in all of this?

  39. Fidel

    So TLC is against the First Amendment? If they don’t like free speech pack up the network and move it to Cuba..

  40. let the man be free! big bad TLC doesn’t own people, no matter what some piece of paper says.

  41. ghost

    Ever hear the expression, “give a man enough rope and he’ll hang himself”? Those two idiots have been bickering and fighting for five months while TLC has waited and watched. And now the male idiot gets to pay for his stupidity. This is about to get good.

  42. wtf

    TLC is seemingly a steaming pile of college educated propagandists that forgot why they even started the network. The entire network is a 24 hour Jerry Springer show for the middle class douchebags that love to take it up the ass from all their masters (employer, politicians, children, banks, and the elite).

  43. It's got a penis!

    The Learning Channel? Really?
    I always thought TLC stood for The Loser Channel.

  44. Tanzarian

    Yes, a small child being read a soothing bedtime story and all is right in the world.

  45. he has no eyelids

  46. Kimberly

    He is getting what he is owed! He will financially broke and waaaaa, poor baby.

  47. j101

    So, he gets sued for doing things outside of TLC but Kate is allowed to do interviews and “comedy skits” everywhere? What they (and kate) are not considering is, that if they take him to the cleaners, then that’s less money that he can direct on to the kids.. No more monthly alimony payments..

    Also, they have to think about what this is going to do emotionally to those kids.. Kate plus TLC are fckg retarded..

  48. Poor Jon….at least TLC can’t take his hair plugs back…..OR CAN THEY?

  49. Eliza Jane

    TLC has already played a huge role in ruining the family… can’t they just drop the show and back off? They don’t look good doing this.

    jon is one ugly fuck
