Jon Gosselin: TLC Violated Child Labor Laws
In new court papers unearthed by RadarOnline.com, Jon Gosselin alleges that TLC -- the network that airs "Jon and Kate Plus 8" -- took advantage of him and and his family.
Jon says the network violated Pennsylvania child labor laws by not obtaining permits in an attempt to "circumvent the laws."
Jon also argues that his family was not represented by a lawyer when they negotiated their first contract in 2005 with the network. Then, they were paid just $2,000 per episode instead of the now-reported $75,000.
Jon's attorney's say TLC took "advantage of Mr. Gosselin's inexperience and lack of sophistication."
The court papers were filed in response to TLC's breach of contract lawsuit against Jon.
