TLC to Jon -- Pants on Fire!

10/16/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a copy of the lawsuit TLC just filed against Jon Gosselin, and the network is essentially saying Jon is a liar by now claiming he stopped production because he's concerned about the welfare of his kids -- TLC says Jon is concerned about the welfare of Jon.

Jon Gosselin -- Launch docs

According to the suit, filed by Paul Gaffney of the law firm of Williams & Connolly in DC, the day TLC recast the show as "Kate Plus 8," Jon's lawyer contacted TLC and demanded that they release him from the "exclusivity" provision of the contract, even though Jon was still drawing a full salary. The suit claims Jon's laywer gave an ultimatum -- either release him from the exclusivity clause within one hour, or Jon would block the filming of the TLC show on grounds it was "detrimental to his children."

TLC notes Jon never uttered a peep about how bad the show was for his kids, until it affected his pocketbook.

And, TLC claims Jon is pulling in some serious bucks from "Entertainment Tonight" -- aka "Entertainment Something."

Awesome!!!! Glad to see someone else out there is smart enough to see through this guy. Did Jon have a plan on how to support these kids when he pulled the plug on production? What a dirtbag!!

geeez! Guess Kate had to be a bossy shrew when it came to Jon, because once he started making his own decision and talking for himself, he's been a been nothing but a bumbling mess. This guy can't seem to find is own a** with both hands.

He will burn in hell for his lies, deceit.... but the poor children are the ones suffering. I could care less about him and Kate now.

Hopefully, Kate is truthful about the money being put up for the children. Since is about "the kids" - lets hope and pray their future and well being is secured.

Ya know what, TMZ, you guys determine the popularity of these jerks. If you stop following them around and posting about them, the whole world will forget about them within 24 hours. Leave them alone, let them drown in their own greed and selfishness.

F*ck TLC    

Nice to see The Learning Channel exploiting kids for ratings..and filing lawsuits when their grown camera men can't follow kids around anymore. Both parents are strange and damaaged..but TLC isn't taking enough heat for exploiting the children. They have loved every minute of this controversy..kids be damned. Society is f*cking screwed.

They are all money whores. Quit reporting on them and maybe they will both get a real job and take care of their kids. Maybe TLC will get a life also

And every word that comes out of Kate's mouth is a lie. She can't tell the truth to save her life.

I guess I have to ask this question every day, huh? Is there anyone on this earth uglier than this douche, that pigwhore of a wife of his and those disgusting trolls they call their kids? They're a-holes, all of them.
