The world according to Jon Gosselin: If his name’s not on the show, there shouldn’t be a show.
Gosselin’s lawyer has sent cable network TLC documents banning production of renamed “Kate Plus 8” at Jon’s family home in Pennsylvania, where Kate and the children still live, according to Radar Online.
One of the documents reads, in part: “Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon’s family home for any reason. In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers.”
TLC announced on Sept. 29 that the show formerly named “Jon & Kate Plus 8” would continue as simply “Kate Plus 8.” That day, Jon’s lawyer reportedly filed the documents to halt production, as well as court papers to suspend the couple’s divorce proceedings.
Updated: TLC has responded with a statement: “We are aware of Jon Gosselin’s recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin’s repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents.”
