In December 2019, Kate Gosselin was hit with a double whammy. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star was found in contempt of court for filming her children without permission, and she had to reveal that she had been fired from TLC, the network that has supported her multiple reality shows. Whaaaaaat?
Well, it turns out that one action fed the other. Kate and Jon have a legal agreement when it comes to filming the kids. Kate is supposed to give Jon a filming schedule that he approves, and she’s supposed to file for work permits so the teens can legally work. It turns out that she didn’t do either.
The rules were decided by a judge who also believes that filming isn’t in the best interest of the kids. Since this is the first time she’s violated the rule, she had to pay Jon $1,500 in legal fees. If she does it again, she could face time in jail.
But the big reveal came after this bombshell. It turns out that TLC had fired Kate as a result of her violation.
