Jon Gosselin is suing TLC for $5 million, claiming the network is keeping him from making money on TV, and that he’s “too famous” to seek employment elsewhere. “I find myself unemployed and without the ability to secure non-entertainment related engagements,” he explains in his suit, “because the enormous Media interest, cameras, reporters and public interest makes it impossible to carry on normal daily activities, let alone find, secure and maintain a job with an employer who is willing to be exposed to the daily Media intrusions that have impeded by life.” And you know he looked everywhere.
JoGo also complains that TLC has been giving hopefully-sooner-than-later-come-on-already-ex-wife Kate a lot more leeway when it comes to cashing in on their fame. “The Plaintiff has promoted and even facilitated opportunities and appearances for my wife, yet attempts to restrain and enjoin me from making a living for my family.” The network filed suit against our hero last month, accusing him of violating the same contract he’s trying to throw out now. While we’re no legal experts, we’re cool with any verdict that leads to the OctoMom dating show.
