Jon Gosselin Too Broke to Fight TLC

2/7/2010 3:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin doesn't have enough dough to fight TLC over the breach of contract lawsuit the network filed against him ... sources close to the case tell TMZ.

Jon Gosselin

Our sources say Jon is now looking for a way to settle the suit due to his lack of funds to fight it -- especially after TLC won an injunction prohibiting Jon from violating the non-compete clause in his contract ... which means he can't make money by appearing on other shows.

We're told the only way the network will agree to settle is if Gosselin agrees to abide by the terms of his contract -- no exceptions.

We've yet to hear back from Jon's people.

Jon has no one to blame but himself.

Can't anyone see that this guy is being royally screwed??? First, he was under the thumb of a controlling, insultive, shrew (Kate), who totally emasculated him, then when he finally freed himself, suddenly he is the bad guy...I just don't get it.

I agree with Bianca. Jon has been shafted by TLC. At least he is rid of the shrew wife.

No3. Bianca... If you don't get it, you must have learning difficulties!!!!
He signed a legal contract & was paid extremely well for it. He deliberately broke the contract to try & earn more money elsewhere, that is breach of contract & he is in the wrong.
This really is legal 101, try & rub together your two brain cells & start a fire in your brain, its really not that difficult to understand that Jon is unquestionably at fault.
Kate meanwhile, abided by the legal terms of the contract which is why there is no legal trouble for her.
Very, very basic stuff Bianca!!!

Jon Gosselin is a bum. He blame everyone for his troubles. Where has his money gone---probably up his nose. He's trying to cut a deal with TLC?????

What a joke. Jon cannot be trusted, he breaks contracts and lies without regard to consequences.

I hope TLC wins the case and the truth finally comes out on his horrible behavior and lies.

by the looks of that photo after TLC gets thru with him the only job he will be able to get is a bad "ELVIS" impersonator

LOL@ TLC actually owning Jon as commercial property. I wonder if TLC can depreciate him their books as he loses value each year.

When a person can't express their own opinion or disagree with someone without resorting to name calling and pettiness, it's a sad reflection of our dumbed down society.

When you sign a contract as an employee and break that contract, your employer has the right to sue you for breach of contract..everyone who works knows that...Jon's problem all along has been his basic greed...he wants something ($$$$) for nothing...in the real world it doesn't work that way and the sooner Jon realizes that the better, but I'm not holding my breath that it happens in my lifetime.
