Did Jon Gosselin deal with any legal troubles that impacted his net worth?

The final episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight premiered in November 2009. Then, TLC decided to take things in a whole new direction. The network abruptly changed the name of the show to Kate Plus Eight in the summer of 2010, in an attempt to continue the reality show without Jon's presence. But they were forced to shut down production when Jon hit them with a cease-and-desist order. His lawyers were not about to let Kate continue with the show without his presence.

TLC initially sued Jon for a breach of contract before that happened in 2009. It turns out he wasn’t allowed to appear on other television shows at all... but he did it anyway, for example, on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider.

Jon responded by countersuing TLC and accusing the network of child labor law violations. Ultimately, all lawsuits were settled in February 2010. Jon hasn’t publicly spoken up about whether or not the legal issues he faced with TLC negatively impacted him financially.
