Jon Gosselin to Countersue TLC?

Jon Gosselin is fighting back. The reality TV star, who is being sued by Jon & Kate Plus 8 network TLC, is reportedly going to countersue them for $5 million.

According to Radaronline, Jon, who is being sued by TLC for breach of contract, will argue that the network prevented him from earning a living due to their restrictions. The network claims Jon broke the rules by getting paid for numerous media appearances without their permission.

TLC is claiming damages for Jon's unauthorized business deals and interviews, claiming that his appearances created a competitor to their programming, even when original episodes are no longer being shot or aired.

Jon has argued he was not adequately represented when he signed his original TLC contract. He is set to appear at a preliminary injunction hearing in Maryland court on Dec. 14 and sources say he will be forced to testify.
