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.

That's a shame........TLC will get their's. Of course Jon doesn't have the money to fight them.....who would??? I wouldn't. They are corporate world. A corporate pot of money. But that shouldn't mean that they should invade his children and demand his life like they are doing. Shame shame shame.

Jon knew better to go against a contract he signed.The divorce didn't have anything to do w/TLC.Jon should have left well enough alone,and let the contract run out.He wants to use his children to avoid a TLC suit..Jon a user,abuser and a cuckoo man....

Who Dat!!!    

Has everyone forgotten that TLC was trying to cut him out of the show and make it just "Kate plus 8"? I know he's not blameless but TLC and Kate are not innocent here. The poor guy is getting shafted.

Make them go away!    


There is only one thing TLC and the Shrew want from him.... the OK to sell out his 8 innocent kids again. They know that nobody is interested in Kate and she can't pull a show on her own. The kids are their gravy train.

I feel so bad for the kids but I'm sick of them too. Make them all go away!

Wow, I feel bad for the kids. Their dad can't even support them, plus he keeps humiliating himself publicly.

So wait, does this mean TLC will most likely start filming the kids again?

Judy, I agree with you. He needs to go back to "real life" and get a "real" job. Granted, a lot will go to child support, but too bad, he blew it big time. I'm sure Kate would never take him back or let him live at the house, Karma, Jon......

His only fault was not wearing a condum. He won't mess with other women again. She needs to take him back so he can return to his fruitful life.
Wait a minute, i THOUGHT i WAS RESPONDING TO THE tIGER wOODS STORY.......NEVER MIND.

TLC had no option but to sue for breach of contract. Jon signed one and broke his agreement. If they let him get away with breaking a contract then contracts would mean nothing. Right now, no one should, or if they had half a mind, offer him any employement as his word means nothing. If he truly thought that filming his children was harmful he would not at this time be offering them to TLC as a bargining chip, treating them as nothing more than possessions to help him out of this lawsuit. Obviously the man has no morals and only thinks of himself and his needs. Stand up for what you believe, that filming hurts your children as you stated. Of course, he has stated many things and always changes what he says to fit his own needs. He also has big problems with the NYC DA. They don't call people in just to ask "how are you".

TLC DID NOT GIVE JON THE SHAFT. JON DID IT TO HIMSELF. HE DESERVES EVERYTHING HE GETS. IF HE HAD HONORED HIS CONTRACT WITH TLC HE WOULD STILL BE GETTING A PAYCHECK, BUT HE WAS A WISE ASS AND STOPPED THE SHOW. WHO'S SORRY NOW???? NEXT HE'LL BE SAYING HE HAS NO MONEY TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT . HE'S JUST A LOSER. DON'T BE SUPRISED IF HE CHANGES HIS MIND AND ALLOWS HIS KIDS BACK ON TV. NO MATTER WHAT HE WANTS US TO BELIEVE, IT'S ALL ABOUT HIM AND THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR. HIS SCHEME BACKFIRED. NOW WHAT??????????

John has been railroaded by TLC, with the help of Kate. She's a shrew and anyone who has watched any of the program (I've seen it all) knows John was the better caregiver and Kate was constantly in a high strung mode of forcing everyone to do what she wanted, her way! John probably did mess with the TLC contract but at least he understood what being filmed was doing to his kids. I hope he gets through this mess and finds a nice, even-tempered woman. Hang in there John!
