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.

Sound terrible, but the Gosselins are typical of their generation: they want it all, and want it all their way, have no ethics, are compulsive liars and frauds, are only interested in money and status. They should be a wake up call.

Saints fan Jon was going to still get payed and be on the show just not all the time.Till the end of his contract.Lili the reason Kate can do all she is doing is becouse in there contracts it says all thay have to do is ask TLC and not slam them and thay can do other things. Jon got him self in this place no one eles did.

Freakazoid! Don't feel a bit sorry for him. He's too young to be going through a mid-life crisis, so THAT'S not an available excuse. There just isn't any excuse for his behavior. He's just a 30-something with no brain, no direction and now, NO LIFE! HA!

I thought the GWOPer's and the others were collecting money in the name of child protection. Why can't they give him the money to fight not to have his kids on TV? Oh, that's right, they probably pocketed the money themselves. From their posts it seems they only want to "bash" Kate and adore JonBoy and justify his behavior. I read some of their postings and they seem like people who are truly hateful. They all boast about how they are good church going people but they obviously don't follow their teachings, to treat others as you would want to be treated.

Why Not    

What you are reading is a story of self-destruction. Responsibility is not his long suit. He wanted to be the big shot superstar, instead he ran himself down a dead-end street and there's only one way to walk out. He now has to walk the straight and narrow, which is impossible and TLC knows it. If they drop the suit, he'll be right back at his big shot ways, because he has tunnel vision and only one MO.
Meanwhile, he is now spending time with his kids, looking for tv spots for them, so he can get paid. It's that simple. His girlfriends are rich, but only because Daddy is, and Daddy's name is not Sharin, or Carin.

Pug boy said he put his kids out there for all the pedophiles and he was taking them off TV for their own good. He agreed with his brother in law and that great gal Jodi, that his children were exploited. Hailey was headed for jail for breaking his almost "100 yr old Ming Vase". For all the losers still harping on his ex wife, give it up. He has been free for quite awhile, but there will always be someone to blame for him being a lazy loser. Keep the kids off the tv, get a real man's job Pug Boy, and get to the New York DA's office and answer his questions. Get to court with TLC and wear your t-shirt with lies on it. Last, but not least, never hire a lawyer shorter than your five yr. olds. Pug boy is finally off to see the wizard!

who cares. He put himself in this position. If he is willing to barter his kids and allow TLC to film them in return for them dropping their suit against him it really will appear he does not have their best interest at heart.
If TLC allows this they too will be pimping the Gosselin 8.

This should be interesting, but I can't see anyone actually winning.

Jon is an idiot with poor representation and legal advice and Kate is a miserable self consumed beotch. TLC is no better, and the public can see right through this.
It's time to move on.

Now he has to play azz kissey to try and get TLC to back down He blatantly violated a contract and has been using his kids as pawn to get what he wants. He bit the hand that fed him and that he is out of money he wants to make nicey with TLC. Well I hope TLC doesn't fall for it I hope they to everything they can to keep his azz off TV forever, as we have learned from his behaviour when Jon plays nicey he is only preparing to bite the other hand.

See that's what happens when you have diarrhea in the mouth real men don't kiss and tell. Although I do believe that his wife is very controlling and what not. Surely that does not give him the right to be on. The Insider and Entertainment tonite show and other shows as well. Exposing all of their business. And TLC is mainly doing it because he's making public appearances every where except where it all started @ Jon get it together dude. Get a chick that already has kids because one that don't aint gonna wanna deal with you and yours
