Jon Gosselin’s poor decisions and lack of brain power led to his TLC lawsuit debacle, says his ex-pal and business partner Michael Lohan.
In an exclusive new video interview with RadarOnline.com, Lohan and new girlfriend Kate Major revealed that Jon is now desperate for money and also said they believed he staged the break-in at his apartment.
TLC announced Wednesday they settled their breach of contract lawsuit against the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star and they are keeping him under contract. Sources told RadarOnline.com exclusively that the network has no plans to put Jon back on TV.
“If Jon was smart... and I don’t think he is smart, he would listen to what TLC tells him to do now,” Major, 27, told RadarOnline.com when asked what she thought the end of his lawsuit with the cable network. “I think once Jon was deposed, from what I’ve heard, settling was his last option. I don’t think he had any other choice.”
Jon was deposed by TLC’s law firm Williams & Connolly just weeks before the settlement.
Added Lohan, “I don’t know what the settlement price was, but I would imagine that whatever the number was, Jon won’t be able to pay it back. He’ll probably be paying collection on it for the rest of his life.”
According to Major, Jon is now “desperate” for money.
And when discussing the alleged ransacking of his apartment by ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman, both Major and Lohan expressed their opinions that Jon staged the event.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that Jon did that,” Major told RadarOnline.com. “If he did stage that break-in, which I think he did, it’s just another pathetic way for him to get a lawsuit and get money out of it. Jon needs to grow up. One day he’ll get what’s coming to him.”
“It takes a dimwit like Jon to actually try to pull off a caper like that,” Lohan chimed in.
So are Kate and Jon’s other ex, Hailey Glassman, really buddies? The two were photographed at a boxing match in Philadelphia in January and happily converse back and forth over Twitter, comparing notes on Jon. Major says she and Hailey have become “good friends” and share a lot in common.
“We let bygones be bygones,” she said. “We’ve been tweeting and I think she’s a hilarious girl and hopefully she’ll join us in some upcoming projects.”
