Jon Gosselin‘s former best buddy Michael Lohan gave what could be a highly damaging deposition Wednesday morning in TLC’s lawsuit against the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, RadarOnlne.com is reporting exclusively.
The two-and-a-half hour deposition took place in New York City.
In an exclusive interview with Lohan after the deposition, he told RadarOnline.com, “They asked questions regarding my involvement on a business level with Jon Gosselin; deals that were negotiated; transactions that did occur and basically my deal with Michael Heller.
Lohan told us he described to the attorneys deals he made for Jon with a magazine as well as “Las Vegas personal appearances. There were some at Ghost Bar, Prive, and the MGM Grand Hotel.
“I think the attorneys from Williams & Connolly were very thorough,” Lohan said of the TLC legal team. “I think they did a great job. They asked the appropriate questions and they got the answers they wanted. I think they have a very, very strong case, one that I definitely don’t think they’ll lose. So good luck to Jon.”
TLC is suing Gosselin for breach of contract. Gosselin and Lohan had once planned to do a reality TV show called The Divorced Dads Club. That project and others Lohan was negotiating would have been a violation of Gosselin’s exclusivity provision in his contract with TLC, the cable net has asserted.
Lohan also told RadarOnline.com that Jon had better beware of what his ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman may say when she is deposed in the case. Hailey’s attorney, he said, “has a pretty powerful file, I understand.”
Williams & Connolly is one of the best law firms in the country and is pursuing the case against Jon with its typical aggression. Paul Gaffney, a partner in the firm, is the lead attorney.
