More information is coming out about why Jon Gosselin is willing to allow TLC to film his kids again, although I think we all knew this day was coming, didn’t we? Apparently, Jon was deposed by TLC a couple of weeks ago, and things did not go well. Radar Online reports that Jon “knows” he can’t win a trial.
“Jon, and his family, has been hurt badly in terms of money he has had to spend,” another source told RadarOnline.com. “A trial will be very, very expensive for him.”
TMZ put it more bluntly, saying Jon was “too broke” to fight TLC. Which is generally why it’s a good idea to think twice before taking a company in court: they have very deep pockets.
However, this doesn’t mean TLC plans on starting up a new version of ‘Kate Plus 8.’ They reportedly don’t trust Jon’s offer to allow them to start filming his kids again anyway.
“For TLC this lawsuit wasn’t about getting the show back on the air,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “And they don’t want it to appear that it was.”
According to TMZ, TLC is insisting that Jon abide by his contract. Translation: he can’t appear on TV without their permission.
I just can’t help but wonder: what in the world has Jon been THINKING all this time? What were his so-called advisors thinking? This stupidity has just been mind-boggling!
