Really Jon? You’re blaming TLC for your bad reputation? It was recently reported that Jon Gosselin has filed a $5 million suit against the network claiming that they have damaged his career and reputation by not allowing him to collect fees for public appearances.
The lawsuit also states that the network tried to prevent Jon from getting hired by other media outlets.Â Jon’s attorney told Usmagazine.com, “Their behavior has caused Jon great anguish and it has caused him financial losses.Â They had a cadre of lawyers so they had a one-sided agreement.”
Jon’s counter-suit comes after TLC took him to court over breach of contract. They claimed that they attempted to resolve the issues with Jon privately for months, but to no avail.Â Jon is scheduled to go up against the network on December 14. He is also seeking compensation for already aired episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8.
