Jon Gosselin files $5 million lawsuit against TLC
People.com is reporting that Jon Gosselin has filed a $5 million claim against TLC, alleging that the network’s representatives damaged his reputation and career by preventing him from working with other media outlets. In the suit (which is a counterclaim against one that TLC filed earlier this year), the erstwhile star of Jon and Kate Plus Eight claims that TLC contacted various media outlets to discourage them from doing business with him. “Their behavior has caused Jon great anguish and it has caused him financial losses,” his attorney, Mark Heller, told People.com. Gosselin’s lawsuit also claims that the network owes him $175,000 for shows that have aired.
