Since Tiger Woods and his mistresses overtook the media’s attention, Jon Gosselin has got to be breathing a sigh of relief. No more pot belly pics or focus on the poor hair implants and douchey focus on his nasty encounters. And while we would love to personally say STFU to Jonny G., TLC seems to have done the work for us. Read more after the jump.
Well Jon officially needs to keep his trap shut. Perhaps that is why he has been absent from Twitter for a hot minute? Yesterday, a judge granted TLC’s request for a preliminary injunction against Jon Gosselin and his flap trap. What does that exactly mean? It means exactly what it means. 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.” HA! Take that big D!
Unfortunately, it is not all over for Gosselin as a trial date for that action has been set for April, 2010.
TLC released a statement saying, “We are pleased with the Court’s ruling today. The Court has validated our view that Mr. Gosselin has a valid, binding contract and that he has breached it repeatedly. Step one — getting the court to order Mr. Gosselin to comply with his contractual obligations — has been accomplished. Any further breaches going forward will be violations of a court order. We look forward to the next phase of the litigation, which is to pursue our claim for damages resulting from Mr. Gosselin’s numerous breaches.”
RadarOnline is saying that Jon was not present for the proceedings at the Maryland Circuit Court, even though he was expected to be questioned under oath regarding his outside income, statements about TLC and more.
