TLC sues Gosselin

The TLC network has sued Jon Gosselin for allegedly breaching his contract as a star of the hit reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8.

NEW YORK — The TLC network has sued Jon Gosselin for allegedly breaching his contract as a star of the hit reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Maryland, alleges Gosselin has failed to meet his obligations as an exclusive employee of the network, while appearing on rival networks’ programs for pay and making unauthorized public disclosures about the show.

Gosselin has starred since 2007 on the weekly Jon & Kate Plus 8, a ratings hit for the network that has been rocked in recent months by marital turmoil as Gosselin and his wife, Kate, feuded, then filed for divorce.

Gosselin, like his estranged wife, became mainstays on tabloid TV shows and magazine covers as Jon Gosselin was seen in the company of other women.

The couple are the parents of young twins and sextuplets whose family home is in Wernersville, Penn.

The suit is seeking from Gosselin unspecified compensatory damages and demanding he return income gained as a result of his alleged breaches of the agreement, as well as to refrain from future violations.

A statement from Gosselin’s attorney, Mark Jay Heller, called the allegations “weak, feeble and baseless,” and the contract “unenforceable and unconscionable.”
