Daily Dish: Jon Gosselin Trying to End Kate Plus 8
Someone’s definitely sweating bullets!
After learning that TLC was planning to boot him from his own show, the man with the ever changing tone began to panic.
On Thursday it was revealed that Jon Gosselin put the network on notice to “cease and desist” any production on what was formerly Jon & Kate Plus 8 (if you haven’t been keeping up it is now simply Kate Plus 8). He also demanded that the television crews leave his property for good.
The allegedly reformed party boy had his attorney Mark Jay Heller whip up an overly dramatic statement, which reads:
“Jon realized his family was like a trainwreck, so he decided to put the brakes on the divorce and on the show … because if he didn’t the family would be in a mortal accident … the victims of a trainwreck.” More like he is a trainwreck.
Heller told The Insider that the initial agreement between the Gosselins and TLC “may very well be ‘null and void’ and unenforceable.” What’s more, he claims the company never bothered to secure the necessary permits required by Pennsylvania Child Labor Law as a “prerequisite” for the eight children’s involvement in the show.
Jon believes that the show is ‘detrimental’ to his kids, and plans to seek court intervention if Kate attempts to go through with her own gig.
Supposedly Jon has been thinking of pulling the plug on the whole thing for weeks now, though he only got around to voicing his desire after hearing about Kate Plus 8. Could he be any more obvious? (The Insider)
