TLC is suing Jon Gosselin for breach of contract in part because of other business deals the cable net claims he was doing in violation of their exclusive agreement, and they've subpoenaed his former best friend Michael Lohan as a witness.

"He did deals with me," Lohan told in an exclusive interview. "I was working on a deal with him for a Nutrisystem endorsement and a book deal. He got a paid a lot of money for different promotions, clubs, magazines, and by a TV network."

Lohan told us he didn't know his deals with Jon might be in violation of his TLC contract. "At times he said what we were doing was ok; at times times he said it was a problem. I guess that’s why he got paid cash for so many of the personal appearances so no one would know.


"He would get paid between $2,500-$5,000 or even more," Lohan claimed. "Some casinos would give him poker chips. I was negotiating a deal for Nutrisystem but when the negative press came out Nutrisystem ran for the hills. We didn’t get to the numbers with Nutrisystem but it would have been six-figures."
