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.

THis fool just never learns. He had it made, then had a tantrum & blew himself out of the water. No one is responsible for his train wreck of a life but him. Once the legal matters are finsihed NO ONE WILL REMEMBER HIS NAME. He has a very rude awakening coming. Pathetic LOSER

Give me a break. He ruined his own reputation. This guy needs to give his head a shake. He's just run out of a source of income, due to his own actions, and this is the only way he knows to get cash.

Dude had it made. Men and women sympathized at the cruelty the muskrat haired Kate made him live through.

After already having 2 kids, depsite his objections, it was her choice to have more kids, through invitro - a sure fire way to Octomom syndrome. Hence she had 8 more. Being a nurse, she knew the risks but did it anyway.

By then, muskrat hair should have known how immature and irresponsible Jon was. How could she continue living with a guy like this, let alone give him more kids? Seriously they were meant for each other.

Hailey will be gone the second, Jon cannot afford to keep her around, which is very very soon.

Way to go Jon, not only did you ruin any chance of a life, but you made sure there is no food on the table for your kids too.

TLC is making Jon's point for him. They continually post inane stories on the fellow. They take the most mundane, trivial storylines and treat them as if they hold some real significance.

Jon's actions aren't so outrageous he should have the infamy he does. Millions of men act in the say fashion without the same kind of reproach. It's not a crime to be a jerk. We don't throw fools in prison. If that were the case, half the people posting here would be incarcerated.

Jon Gosselin is the biggest loser ever and TLC didn't do it. You and your pothead girlfriends did it.The only reason the paps are always around you is because you tell them where you're going. How'd they know when you'd leave for Hawaii but you called them. You never know where Kate is the week you're with the kids because she doesn't call the press but you always do. You're a joke and you're bringing shame on the good GOSSELIN name your father gave you. It wasn't associated with the filth and shame when he gave it to you. Lord if he only knew the way you've brought shame on your children with your immoral behavior. You're a pathetic human being. Why don't you jump in one of those Hawaiian volcanos & give the world a break.

OMG... If he wouldnt have signed on to begin with, he wouldnt have become well-known and a 'celebrity' and therefore wouldnt have anyone pestering him about anything... plus if he would have been a nice guy and kept it in his pants, none of this would have happened at all!! what a dumbass!!

He's sooo desperate for attention. Now that the reasons (money, notoriety, etc.) that drew his previous "girlfriends" to him has faded, he's trying anything for the spotlight. Regarding his previous comments about his attorney-notice how he WAITED till AFTER Kate got eliminated from DWTS before he opened his big mouth. He knew Kate would be concerned about the kids & can't concentrate on DWTS. He's disturbed & I wish TLC would ignore that STUBBY person...oh, I mean tubby person..ha!
