Jon Gosselin: Too Famous to Work?

By: Celebuzz / November 13, 2009

One might look at Jon Gosselin‘s spotty employment record and conclude that he’s a lazy, shiftless bum.

But no; apparently, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad has reached such a summit of fame that he’s no longer able to seek honest work.

In an affidavit obtained by Radar Online, Gosselin—who’s currently embroiled in litigation with cable channel TLC over breach-of-contract claims—says, 

“Now, I find myself unemployed and without the ability to secure non-entertainment related engagements because the enormous Media interest, cameras, reporters and public interest makes it impossible to carry on normal daily activities, let alone find, secure and maintain a job with an employer who is willing to be exposed to the daily Media intrusions that has impeded by life.”

Gosselin, who formerly worked in the IT field, is being accused by TLC of setting up paid media appearances in alleged violation of his contract with them. The reality dad is counter-suing the channel for $5,000,000, claiming that TLC is preventing him from making a living.

A preliminary injunction hearing on the matter is scheduled to take place on December 14 in a Maryland court.
