TLC has filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Jon Gosselin yesterday morning.
TLC is claiming that Jon is violating his contract by making paid and unpaid TV appearances without the cable network’s permission.
“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,” reads a statement released by the network. “Those efforts have been unsuccessful.”
Mark Heller, Jon’s attorney says, “Jon will vigorously defend against this baseless action, assuming Discovery and TLC choose to go forward with their claim by legally serving him with notice, and we are confident that through the course of litigation it will clearly be evident that Discovery and TLC exploited, manipulated and abused the Gosselins’ vulnerability and financial hardship,” Heller’s statement read.
Wow, ya give a guy a leg up in the world and this is how he repays you?
