Jon Gosselin Countersues TLC Over 'Reputation'

11/13/2009 2:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin has fired off a countersuit against TLC -- claiming the network caused him "to suffer harm to his reputation." (insert joke here).

Jon Gosselin

According to court docs, Kate's ex says he didn't breach his contract with the network -- and now he wants $175,000 he claims they owe him from the show.

Best line ever ... Jon says in legal docs, "because of the enormous Media interest ... and public interest it makes it impossible to carry on normal daily activities, let alone find, secure and maintain a job with an employer who is willing to be exposed to the daily Media intrusions that has impeded my life." Pleeeeeze!!!!

Gosselin claims TLC has been bad mouthing him all over town -- he wants $5 million in damages.

Jon...you are a true douche bag! You think TLC wouldn't have filed if they didn't have the legal stand that they do. Grow up and go away. The public and I have had enough of you and the rest of your parade.

Don't understand the confusion    

Jon is NOT famous, he's infamous, and he caused it all by himself with his own actions. It wasn't the TLC contract that caused his actions. They didn't cause his bad behavior. They didn't cause him to verbally attack his wife on TV, unlawfully remove at least $180K from a joint bank account, seek out paparazzi, defame his own wife by making up and spreading rumors about her infidelity, and so on. He signed the contract. We all know ignorance is not a valid defense. He also had representation when it was renewed. While I really want him to go away and HONESTLY try to straighten out his life (not just for show), I also am curious to find out how it will all play out in court.

Even tho he is a bit of a douche, I agree with him. Hecan never go back to being ordinary. It can't be done. Look at poor Gary Coleman. He took a job as a mall security cop to try to be normal, and yet constantly harrassed.

Take a Peek at her book    

Jon, if you quit calling the paps, they wouldn't follow you. But what excuse would you have for not getting a job?

Just what the already overly taxed "justice" system needs. Another frivolous lawsuit. Guess who pays for that?

Funny, I haven't seen or heard TLC say anything against this unfortunate looking little man. He's unemployable because he's an irresponsible wishy washy freak who brought this situation upon himself . TLC gave him the break of his life for simply being a sperm donor. He even managed to screw that sweet job up.

Gosselin should be sentenced to wear a large "L" for LOSER on all his clothing like Hawthorne's "S" in the Scarlett Letter.

Dude has a bad case of the Lindsay Blohans: he's way strung out and delusional. The only people who will make money in this are his sheister lawyers, who will garnish and attach his wages until long after he's dead.

Um, TLC is the problem???? I'm thinking your stupid actions over the last few months have contributed just a little more than anything TLC has done. Idiot.
