10/16/2009 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon GosselinTLC is dropping the legal hammer on Jon Gosselin -- filing a lawsuit against the guy for breaching his contract on "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

In the suit, filed Friday in Maryland, the network claims Jon was contracted to be an "exclusive" employee -- but broke his deal when he began taking money to appear on other shows and talking about "Jon & Kate" without proper permission.

Jon has appeared as a guest on all sorts of shows lately -- most recently appearing on "Entertainment Tonight."

Good for TLC! Someone has to make Jon Gosselin accountable, he has made outrageous statements, inferred horrible things about the mother of his children. Questioning her sanity? Please. Grow up Jon. He is the most immature father of 8 I have ever seen and very self centered. I do believe Jon has a lot to answer for, not just to TLC.

That said, all kids are lucky they're not getting divorced in Utica!

The below ran in Utica after a Utica Police Officer Joseph Longo murdered his wife within Four Hours of their hearing.

Why can Kate be on every show they can get her on crying about everything and it is OK but Jon tries to defend himself and gets sued. Seems kind of strange.

to Simone...TLC destroying lives???? If anything, TLC SAVED their lives...why, because how could a family of 8+ survive in this economy this day and age...TLC gave these kids a chance at a good future instead of one where the family requires to scrounge for food and scrounge just to pay the bills.....They are LUCKY that TLC contracted them for a show.....now Jon just needs to grow up and thank TLC for providing a future for his kids lives instead of being all about him and his payday!!

Jon is a panzy who's out to make a buck....to let his "I'm doing this for my kids" fool you!!!

I thought Jon was let go from the show. So how can he be breaching his contract? If he is not under contract he can do as he wants. I agree with Simone, Jon is more sane then Kate. The show should be Jon Plus 8...

Not a fan of the show any more, but I am glad that somebody is holding Jon accountable for his actions. He needs to learn that he cannot do whatever he wants, whenever he wants to whomever he wants. He is totally out of control and hopefully this will be a wake-up call.
