TLC Slams Jon as He Tries to Stop 'Kate Plus 8'

He says no production crews can enter the family home.

Days after TLC dumped him from "Jon and Kate Plus 8," Jon Gosselin has demanded through his lawyers that the show cease production immediately.

"Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon's family home for any reason," a letter from his attorney to TLC says. "In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers."

A sloppily written sign full of misspellings on Jon's property reads: "Notice: No film crew or production staff from TLC is permitted on this property under penelty [sic] of trespass." Jon Gosselin's name appears at the end of the notice -- apparently misspelled.

Jon's manager tells "Extra" that they have indeed sent a cease and desist order to TLC to try and stop taping the show. "He's been trying to stop the show for a while now," the manager said, adding, "He wants to get his private life with his family back. The kids have been complaining. He doesn't feel that the show is necessary anymore."

TLC has issued a statement, slamming the dad of eight. "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."

Now Mark Jay Heller, Jon Gosselin's lawyer, has issued the following response: 

"As legal counsel for Jon Gosselin, I am totally confident that he will be completely successful in his quest to take back control of his family and preserve, protect and ensure their future well-being by putting the brakes on his divorce and pulling the plug on TLC, the media giant that he perceives as a monster that has exploited and manipulated his family and has been partially responsible for the breakdown of his marriage. Jon is resolved not to allow the TLC Corporate machine to devour his family and promote the monster's best interests over those of his family. TLC and Discovery have been reputed to have generated approximately $186 million dollars for the quarter - compliments of the Gosselin Family, and Jon firmly believes that their greed to continue that cash flow will be trumped by his courage and determination to protect his family."

its really now time for kate to quit running all over the country dragging these children & let them try to live some sort of normal lives,i can understand she needs money but there are other avnues she can take so she can spend time w/these kids w/o the camera’s all the time! money isnt everything ! she had stated that she took out $100,00 from the acct also n hid it but then put it back so she shouldnt be dogging him, time to make stop the bs & focus on these children!

To me it’s obvious that a reality TV show is never in the best interest of the children. I applaude Jon’s decision!

Jon Gosselin is a total jerk! All of a sudden he wants to be “Father of the Year”. Why? You have not been a good dad for quite sometime and all of a sudden you want production stopped? Not convenient for you anymore? Kate is a wonderful mother and has struggled with your cheating ways and trying to support her kids. Get real people! Jon go away with your little bimbo (we’ll see how long this lasts) and try to grow up and be the dad you should be! Your anger on TV and the stupid shows you choose to appear on tell it all about you Jon. You are one big looser!

I am on Jon side. She needs HELP!

I am so thankful that this is finally getting put to a hault!! Kate should have stopped this before when the divorce or when they were having problems last season. They need to keep these types of things private & stop letting their children suffer the way they are. GOOD FOR YOU JON!! I stand behind you - Protect your children. Start living a normal life - A FAMILY FAITH FILLED life that you promoted of having before. Find it again!! Put God back in your lives 1st and all will work out!

the whole thing about the gosselin’s is they don’t need the big house, all the free trips, all of the stuff they are given, the average family is lucky if they get one vacation a year and if they do their kids appreciate it. these kids have gotten such an overload of everything they don’t appreciate it but just expect more. jon and kate could afford to do these things on their own money with what they have earned over five seasons, the church money, the book money, the speaking money, etc. there are plenty families of 10 making it on their own even in these times (but of course jon and kate would each have to go back to actual work) and don’t pull the line about day care, the kids could be in school full time (oh yeah, they aren’t ready developmentally) oh well, other people have to pay for day care, send the ones that are ready to school and put the others in day care. just quit living off someone else!!!!

I have to agree with most comments. they are both Losers. Maybe Jon did wrong but I do believe she led him to it. She treated him like a total… and the other Daughter,Maddy acted just like her. I think Jon is right,no matter the timing, which is probably a result of just finding his voice. It can’t be healthy for those kids to be under constant public scrutiny with Cameras in their face! On the ending episode he expressed that. all Kate did was talk about what they gained and how much was being taken from HER and the kids! She’ll just have to get used to living off the Millions, she already made and get on with it! Imagine having to get used to living like the rest of us in PA! Oh My! you work 5 days a week & get a scheduled vacation! I’m so Sorry Kate that your Free Ride is over, I know it has to be hard,especially with the millions having to split with the Kids, someday??hopefully but you have only yourself to BLAME! I hope for the Kids sake you two can reconcile, if not Good Luck finding a Man who will take on 8 Kids and a Woman who emasculates him! HELLO!
What did I get out of the show, a chance to teach my Daughters…how to Never belittle,Emasculate, or Treat a Man they way she did!
