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?

    Um, did anyone notice that the fourth Lindsay Lohan pic and the pic of Jon look alike. Same, stupid facial expression!

    Well, the people at TLC are assholes for suing, but this idiot did have it coming. I watched that trainwreck show since the beginning, and this guy never knew and will seemingly never know how to act like an adult.

    Too bad for the kids though. Their dad really sucks.

    Yes, he has poor style and looks dopey. So what? He is also laid back and always seemed far more grounded in reality that that cunt wife of his. After putting up with that woman and her endless pursuit of dollars, the man deserves to be well off.

    He’s an easy target for internet losers to pick on though. “Oh my God, it made my day to hear this news.” Knobs, all of you.

    If people didn’t watch these shows, this crap wouldn’t happen…

    Never watched the show, never would watch the show, I only know it from Soup clips. Basically they’re both narcissistic morons. These two hicks should crawl back under whatever rock they slimed out from under in the first place. TLC is being disingenuous, too, suing the monster they created, but at least it should put the beat down on Sleazy the eighth dwarf’s public appearances for a while.

    Those poor kids, oh well…

    What is with you Americans and your fame/money fetish? Some loser moron can become famous overnight in the States for basically doing nothing, then, typically, pisses his/her short-term supply of cash away on all the so-called status symbols lower class people always think the truely rich would be caught dead in, to show that he/she has “made it” only to wind up broke and working for minimum wage before the year is out! I think you people need better role models. I mean all you seem to have is Trump, a handful of porn stars and a bunch of ignorant, uneducated rappers.

    I have a hunch that once Jon allows TLC to resume filming, that this suit will somehow be quietly dropped.

    Nof if they just get the OTHER one once they’re done with him, and get those kids in a REAL home, then balance will be restored to the universe.

    This aint the fucking wizard of oz there, sweetcheeks. Saying it 3 times doesnt make it any less lame….and ending a sentence with a question mark when its not a question makes you look similiar to the same orifice you’re accusing him of looking like?
