Following Jon Gosselin's announcement that he no longer wants his family being filmed for the reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8," TLC has released a statement to ET regarding the dad of eight's demands.
The TLC statement reads:
"We are aware of Jon Gosselin's recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents."
ET learned exclusively that Jon has put TLC on notice to "cease and desist" production of the television show and leave his property.
The reality star's attorney Mark Jay Heller told ET in regards to the show: "Jon realized his family was like a trainwreck, so he decided to put the brakes on the divorce and on the show … because if he didn't, the family would be in a mortal accident … the victims of a trainwreck."
