DJ Jon Gosselin Scratch That Bowling Alley Noise ... I'm Gettin $20k To DJ


One of the 3 people who caught Jon Gosselin DJing at a New Jersey bowling alley last month were lucky ... because he just got offered a $20k gig in Atlantic City.

According to our club sources, Jon's spinning his way up the ladder fast ... he's moved on from Brewster's Bar and Grill to drop the beats at the posh Pool After Dark club in Harrah's Casino.

And he won't have to spend 5 hours around pins and funky shoes ... he'll only spin for an hour before spending another hour or so meeting his loyal fans.

The money's definitely good but it barely dents the $1 mil judgment against him in February for stealing from a former boss.

Too bad he can't spin that.


Jon Gosselin Spinning For One During DJ Gig


Jon Gosselin learned lesson #1 about show biz Saturday ... Everyone's gotta start somewhere.

That somewhere was a New Jersey bowling alley, where Jon made a guest appearance as a DJ.

The good news ... the one person who got up and danced really liked it.

Jon Gosselin Socked with $1 MILLION Judgment He's a Scanner Scammer!


Jon Gosselin needs to ask Kate for a loan STAT, because he was just socked with a million dollar judgment for stealing from his former company.

Jon worked for Securus, which sells electronic payment processing systems to merchants. It's the thing that attaches to iPhones to accept credit cards.

So Jon was a sales manager who was supposed to go out in the field and hawk the product. Instead, Securus claims he was a Benedict Arnold, convincing merchants to abandon the company for a competing company he was secretly helping.

Securus sued Jon and he didn't respond, so the judge entered a default judgment for more than a million bucks.

We tried calling Jon ... not sure if his phone's still in service.

Kate Gosselin 'Profoundly Concerned' Over Jon Firing Gun


Kate Gosselin is gunning for a way to protect her 8 kids from a trigger-happy ex-husband ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Kate is talking to her people about getting the judge in their custody case to modify the order, requiring Jon to exercise restraint when it comes to firing weapons when he has the kids.

We're told she is "profoundly concerned" that Jon was armed last weekend when he left a restaurant, returned home and fired a warning shot in the air to scare a trespassing photog off his property. She says it was an "extreme reaction."

Kate is saying she's dumbfounded that Jon didn't just call 911 to report the trespasser.

We're told she's talking to her people about getting an order requiring Jon to keep all firearms under lock and key when the kids are visiting. She also wants the judge to somehow restrict his right to fire weapons when the children are there.

Kate Gosselin Worried About Her Kids' Safety


The gunshot Jon Gosselin fired was more than a warning to a pesky paparazzo -- it was a wake-up call for Jon's ex-wife, Kate Gosselin ... who admits to TMZ she's worried about her children's safety.

Kate dropped a strong hint about taking legal action against Jon when we asked her about the gun incident outside Jon's cabin in the Pennsylvania woods.

Kate's 8 kids spend most of their time with her, but also visit with Jon.

But based on Kate's reply to our camera guy in NYC today -- "I'm doing what it takes to keep them safe" -- she's got something cooking ... perhaps with an attorney.

Consider yourself warned, Jon.

Kate Gosselin Ducking For Cover After Jon's Warning Shot

Jon Gosselin's ex-wife isn't the least bit surprised he fired a warning shot at a photog -- and while she's choosing her words very carefully ... Kate Gosselin seems to be saying she's gotten used to erratic behavior from him.

Kate claims she's not even aware of what happened -- even though it was in the news all weekend -- saying she doesn't pay attention to what her ex does.

But when the camera guy explained what happened she wasn't shocked by Jon's gunslinging, saying ... "Nothing surprises me anymore."

TMZ broke the story ... Jon said he was sending a message when he popped a cap into the air after a paparazzo followed him onto private property.

Is Kate concerned about Jon having a gun around their 8 kids? Check the clip ... she's tiptoeing around it, but definitely sounds like the answer is ... yes.

Jon Gosselin Proud Father ... of a 3-Year-Old Tax Lien

Jon Gosselin became a free man in 2009 -- problem is, he allegedly snubbed the State of Pennsylvania in the process ... and now, the schlubby reality dad's been hit with a $39K tax lien.

If you recall, 2009 was the year Jon and Kate went splitsville ... scoring them both more publicity -- i.e. paid interviews and appearances -- than either could've imagined.

But according to docs filed in Berks County, Pennsylvania ... Jon still failed to dish out the necessary cash to the government that year ... resulting in the massive tax bill.

Let's hope he saved some of that sweet reality cash ... 'cause while the bill might've been a doable amount back then, it's gonna be a pain in 2013 ... considering Jon works a totally normal person job now.

Thank God he bought all those Ed Hardy shirts while he had the chance... Multiple attempts to reach Jon were unsuccessful.
