RadarOnline is reporting Kate Major was deposed Wednesday and her testimony against the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad was explosive. Kate revealed Jon planned to endorse a line of motorcycles as well as kids’ clothes and furniture. Kate also told RadarOnline exclusively, “I was supposed to be his assistant as well as work with him on a book and other endorsements such as a motorcycle line and a kids clothing line, and kids’ stackable furniture.”
All of the above was ofcourse in direct violation of Jon’s contract with TLC. According to Kate, Jon’s contract with TLC “never came up.” She said, “It didn’t seem to concern him.”
Michael Lohan also testified against his one time friend, and revealed details of how Jon cashed in on his fame in ways that the networks says violated his contract. “Michael Heller (Jon’s lawyer) and I were bringing deals to the table for Jon,” Lohan told Radar. “The first deal I secured for him was with In Touch Magazine. He got paid for that. Then we brought him a couple of deals in Vegas and that was arranged by Mike Heller…but the agreement was that any deals brought by Mike or myself, we would share in.”
According to Lohan, Jon was paid $20,000 for his exclusive with In Touch and $5,000 for an appearance at Prive Nightclub in Las Vegas-Plus $1500 in chips. Other deals included a book, which ultimately fell through but “would have made Jon a lot of money.”
Hailey Glassman is scheduled to be deposed Dec. 7.
