Jon Gosselin may be back in New York City, but he left a whirlwind of drama behind him in LA.
And, in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Jon’s friend Michael Lohan blames much of Jon’s problems on bad legal advice.
“From a legal standpoint, I don’t agree with anything being done right now,” Lohan told RadarOnline.com about Jon’s situation.
Despite being escorted around Los Angeles by his lawyer Mark Heller, Gosselin still managed to dig himself even deeper into a grave of bad publicity. Most recently he found himself the target of public anger over Kate’s claim that he emptied their joint bank account, leaving her with just $1,000 to pay their bills.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Michael Lohan says the reality star is being misled by those around him.
“First of all, I listened to Kate and I understand exactly where she’s coming from when it comes to paying the bills and taking care of the kids,” he told RadarOnline.com. “I also believe that Jon will not have his kids living with no roof over his head so I think they’ll work something out. However, and this is a big however, whoever his counsel was who advised Jon to do what he did are the ones who should be put on the chopping block.”
Jon’s counsel is attorney Mark Heller, who appeared with him Monday on The Insider, during which CNN’s Nancy Grace ripped into the reality star for getting bad legal advice.
Lohan tells RadarOline.com, he agrees.
“I agree 100 percent. What kind of counsel would advise Jon to prevent the camera crews from going on his property when they know that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen?” Lohan told RadarOnline.com. “What counsel would advise Jon to back off from doing an interview with E!—which Jon was offered and didn’t do--when TLC isn’t preventing Kate from doing any interviews at all?”
