TLC and Jon Gosselin have finally come to terms in their lawsuits against each other.

TLC released a statement today confirming it has reached a settled with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. “TLC has reached a settlement with Jon Gosselin and will be undertaking procedural steps to conclude the litigation. All terms of the settlement are confidential. The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC,” TLC said in a statement released Wednesday.

This all started when Jon decided to ban TLC from filming his eight children last year citing an epiphany that she show was hurting them. Coincidentally this epiphany just happened to occur days after TLC announced it would no longer have Jon on the hit show, thus changing the name of the show to Kate Plus 8.

TLC alleged Jon had breached his contract and sued him. Jon in return filed a countersuit against TLC for millions. TLC won the first round as a Judge banned Jon from doing any interviews or paid appearances last December. We reported weeks ago that Jon was willing to allow TLC to film his kids again if they would drop their suit against him.

TLC’s Wednesday statement adds that “The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC.”

Jon’s ex-wife, Kate Gosselin’s untitled show is still set to debut sometime later this year on TLC. The program will not focus on the couple’s eight kids. No word yet on whether TLC will now continue with Kate Plus 8.

Jon’s attorney, Mark Heller, released the following statement -

“Jon has expressed his desire to close the litigation chapter of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and although all terms are confidential, he is hopeful that TLC will move forward with the best interests of the Gosselin family. Sometimes litigants that kiss and make up find their relationship is better the second time around. As Jon’s attorney I truly hope that this new adventure for TLC and the Gosselins is a much more joyful journey.”

We saw this story coming from a mile away the minute it was reported that one of Hailey Glassman’s attorneys specialized in domestic violence cases. Well the NYPost is now reporting that Jon Gosselin allegedly slammed his former girlfriend Hailey against the wall of their Manhattan apartment after he saw a photo of her kissing her new beau “Celebrity Boxing” promoter Damon Feldman.

“That picture started the whole thing, a picture of her kissing another man,” Hailey a source told The Post.  According to the NYPost, Hailey filed a harassment complaint with the NYPD, saying “she was pushed against [a] wall” on Dec. 20 and verbally abused by Jon.   The cops are currently investigating the charge.

Jon’s lawyer is however denying Hailey’s claims of abuse. “Jon is a lover, not a fighter,” said Mark Heller. “He’s been rumored to steal a kiss here and there, but he has never been accused of landing a sucker punch.”

Jon’s Lawyer also tells RadarOnline that Hailey is making up her claims of abuse simply as retaliation against Jon’s claims.  “Her legal people obviously advised her to put this out there,” Heller tells Radar. “Often times when you have a domestic situation and one of the parties goes down to a police precinct and makes a complaint its not uncommon that the other party is urged to make a counter claim. So the one party will have a bargaining chip, ‘you withdraw your claim I will withdraw my claim’

According to Heller, Jon called the cops on December 26th after noticing his apartment has been ransacked and robbed, and Hailey waited until a week after the alleged Dec. 20th incident to file her complaint with the police. Heller believes Hailey filed her complaint because all signs are pointing to her being the culprit in the Jon Gosselin apartment saga.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE HAILEY’S ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JON?

Jon Gosselin

The soap opera known as the life of Jon Gosselin is refusing to end anytime soon.  As we previously reported, Jon’s apartment in NYC was ransacked this past weekend with a ton of his items being stolen or left destroyed.

A note accusing Jon of being a cheater was left in one of his rooms with a knife in it. The note was signed with Hailey Glassman’s name, who happens to be Jon’s disgruntled ex girlfriend.

According to RadarOnline, Hailey was interviewed by the NY Police Department on Saturday evening. Accompanying her was her attorney Stephanie Ovadia and her associate Anand Ahuja, who specializes in domestic violence cases.  The cops ofcourse questioned Hailey about the burglary. The cops also had a talk with Hailey’s parents.

Hailey’s attorney is however coming out swinging by accusing Jon of staging the whole thing. “It appears to be a huge publicity stunt,” said Ahuja, who also believes the police investigation will show someone is trying to frame Hailey.

Hailey’s other attorney, Stephanie Ovadia, admits Hailey took some items out of the apartment.  According to Ovadia, that security footage will show Hailey removing a TV and other items from his apartment. Ovadia however makes it clear Hailey did nothing wrong by removing her belongings.  “We’re not denying Hailey took the TV,” Ovadia told Radar. “We are not denying she took her belonging out of the apartment. She is moving on with her life and taking her belongings.”

Jon Gosselin’s attorney, Mark Heller seems to see things differently and was quoted as saying: “Hailey Glassman is going to jail. It’s a simple as that.”  But Hailey’s attorney believes that comment was irresponsible and claims Hailey, “is not even a suspect.”

As each day goes by, it’s starting to appear more and more that Hailey is in fact the culprit.  Not sure why she needed to get two attorneys if she did nothing wrong, and her lawyers comments and admissions seem a bit telling.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK HAILEY IS RESPONSIBLE?

It seems Jon Gosselin is starting to feel the consequences of his douchebagary ways, as a new FoxNews report reveals the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad is in serious financial trouble.

According to the report, Jon is broke due to TLC being granted a preliminary injunction that forced Jon to stop making public appearances. This has apparently been a major blow to Jon, as he can no longer earn money from staging paparazzi photos and giving out paid interviews.

“Jon’s in pretty serious financial trouble because his plan for making money was shut down in court,” the insider said. “He has warned his lawyers that he can’t pay them and if he doesn’t succeed against TLC, he will have no funds. He’s even gone so far as to say that if they want to be paid, they will have to sue him.”

Those lawyers include father/son team – Mark and Mike Heller, who were introduced to Jon by Michael Lohan. Taking any form of advice from the troubled Lohan is of course always a great idea. The source tells Fox News, “Lohan wanted to latch onto Jon and involved many people he knew. He convinced them Jon was going to have a successful career after the show.”

In October, a judge ordered Jon to return $180,000 of the $230,000 he withdrew from the joint account he shares with his estranged wife Kate Gosselin, which violated an arbitrator’s previous order that they not withdraw any funds without the other’s approval. Kate claimed back then that Jon’s withdrawal left her with no money to pay the bills.

Jon might have also led his lawyers to believe he had more money than he actually did. Jon’s bills are said to be stacking up as he now has no job, and is not making any effort to get a job. “It’s a good thing Kate Gosselin has been put in charge of the family funds that provide for the couple’s eight children,” the insider says. “She is the responsible parent.”

This is likely just the beginning of financial troubles for Jon, as TLC lawsuit against him is scheduled to go to trial in April, 2010. Until then, the preliminary injunction granted against him will continue to stand.

Jon Gosselin

Jon Gosselin, star of Jon and Kate Plus 8, refused to show up at the lawsuit hearing that took place yesterday against TLC even though his attorney, Mark Heller said the father of eight would be present. Needless to say the hearing started in his absence. TLC representatives present at the hearing criticized the father of eight and referred to his behavior as “embarrassing”.

According to Usmagazine, the network requested that the judge stop Jon from making any media appearances that violated his exclusive contract since the contract is still in effect. However, Jon says he has a right to earn a living as a media personality. Jon has filed a countersuit against TLC citing that the network violated Pennsylvania’s child labor laws in filming his eight children.

During the hearing, TLC’s reps revealed that the Gosselin family was being paid $22,500 per episode as supposed to $75,000 that Jon may have revealed to the media. In addition, they wanted Jon to stop appearances that “make the show look bad” referring to his appearance at an August pool party in Las Vegas. Edward Sabin, TLC’s Chief Operating Officer also added that the image Jon has portrayed in the public isn’t consistent with the show’s image. Edward offered other examples of bad behavior: Jon’s habit of signing autographs outside the family’s PA home, chatting with paparazzi outside his home, and the list goes on. According to Sabin, they tried unsuccessfully to reach Jon’s manager. “It was a bit disconcerting, so we cried, ‘Foul! Guys, foul!’ — you gotta get your guy in line.”

The judge agreed with TLC, and granted TLC’s request for a preliminary injunction against Jon late Thursday. The ruling means that Jon must abide by the exclusivity and confidentiality agreement in his contract, putting an end to his unapproved and paid interviews with various outlets. It will also prohibit him from continuing to pursue competing TV deals.

Based on this ruling, it’s safe to say we will be seeing and hearing much less of the douchebag Jon in the recent weeks to come.

According to Radaronline, Hailey Glassman was deposed on Monday by TLC’s lawyers and was shocked to hear that Jon cheated while they were together. Following the deposition, Hailey was furious and had only harsh words to say to her ex-beau, Jon Gosselin when it was confirmed that he cheated with former Star magazine reporter Kate Major.

“I was told under oath that Jon really did sleep with Kate Major,” a teary-eyed Hailey told RadarOnline. “I’m mind boggled and hurt by it. And he still lies to me about it and denies it to this day.”

In the interview with Radar, Hailey calls Jon some interesting names. She says, “He became a monster, master manipulator and a compulsive liar.” This is fascinating considering she has defended Jon for the past several months.

Interestingly, the estranged couple still lives together. “We are not together,” Hailey said. “But it’s complicated. We’re still living together but he’s away travelling.”

Radar also reports, during the deposition Hailey denied any business dealings with Jon that may have allowed him to breach his contract with the network. “Anyone with a brain can guess that he did stuff outside his contract,” she admits. “He couldn’t do anything without TLC’s approval, we all know that. But he didn’t discuss business deals with me.”

Hailey confirms being a part of the interview with a major entertainment television show after she was contacted by Michael Heller. She claims Michael Heller never gave her the check but used it as payment for the money Jon owed his father (Mark Heller). “It was the most ridiculous thing in the world. To this day, Mike Heller has my check from October,” says Haley.

In the midst of tears, Hailey says she isn’t on speaking terms with her mother because of Jon. And Jon manipulated her mother to get back to her so she could forgive him when there were rumors of him cheating. “I just want this all to be over,” she said. “I want him out of my life… I want my family to come back together. I feel like I’ve been in crazy land, in a tank of piranhas. I think Jon needs to relearn to love himself-before he can even have friendships. He needs to relearn how to be a good person and I hope he gets help.”

Not very smart but RadarOnline reveals that Jon’s legal team did not have a lawyer present at the deposition.

Jon and Kate Gosselin will come face-to-face under the supervision of a court-appointed arbitrator, reports RaderOnline. The purpose of the meeting is to resolve the details of their highly publicized soap opera divorce.

TLC’s lawsuit against Jon is still in the works and they are being represented by one of the top legal firms in the country, William & Connolly. If Jon is unlucky and losses the battle against TLC, he will face large legal bills and may have to pay back a huge sum of money to the network. Sources say Jon is hoping that Kate will convince TLC not to proceed with the suit against him since it will take money away from her and the kids.

In addition, TLC wants to prevent Jon from getting paid for interviews and appearances so they are moving ahead with an attempt at a preliminary injunction against Jon.  In the mean time, it seems Jon may have gotten smarter as he trying a different approach in dealing with the mother of his children. According to a source, instead of being inconsiderate to Kate, he’s now ready to try a more peace-making approach.

In other news, Jon’s lawyer, Mark Heller considers Kate Major’s possible lawsuit against Jon to be a joke.  We reported days ago that Jon signed a handwritten contract promising to hire Kate as his personal assistant. “Kate knows Jon Gosselin is like Obama’s stimulus package,” Heller told RadarOnline on Thursday. “Every time she needs money, she cashes in on the few days she knew Jon Gosselin.”

The final episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs November 23 on TLC.

The drama in Jon Gosselin’s life doesn’t seem to be coming to an end any time soon, instead it worsens by the day. Several of Jon’s close associates including Hailey Glassman may be used as witnesses against Jon in TLC’s lawsuit against him, reports RadarOnline. Since these people will be under oath, there is no telling the type of information that will be revealed against Jon.

TLC alleges that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad breached his exclusive contract with them by giving paid interviews to other networks and selling photos of himself to tabloids. Their lawyers have gotten off to a fast start in determining Jon’s other sources of income. The law firm has a reputation for being fierce and has been very busy since TLC filed the suit in October.

According to RadarOnline, on November 4 the court granted several motions filed by the law firm, allowing them to depose Hailey, Jon’s bodyguard Thomas Meinelt, Michael Heller, Mark Heller, Michael Lohan and Matthew Kirschner.

Since TLC’s attorneys have been granted the right to depose the Hellers (Jon’s previous lawyers), they most likely will not be allowed to represent Jon in the case, as they are now witnesses. All parties involved will be asked to divulge information that could possibly hurt Jon in the suit. The Hellers will certainly be asked about every non-TLC pay that Jon has received and Hailey will also be forced to reveal what she knows.

Radar is also reporting that a date has been set for TLC’s case against Jon. He is required to appear December 14 in a Maryland courtroom when a judge will hear TLC’s motion for a preliminary injunction. It is likely he will be questioned under oath about his income on this date.

In other news, Jon has now decided to take on yoga to help reduce the self induced stress in his life.  And paparazzi just happened to snap a photo of him practicing his yoga. Wondering how much he got paid to sell this photo of himself.  The photo is below –
