Michael Lohan leaks Jon Gosselin phone tapes for cash, TLC lawsuit

Michael Lohan has said in the past that he’s no longer friends with Jon Gosselin after Gosselin cut him out of deals he was trying to broker for him.

Lohan is one of the witnesses subpoenaed to potentially testify in TLC’s case against Jon for breeching his contract. He seems to have an axe to grind along with being an all-around asshole with no sense of loyalty to anyone, especially his own family. When you talk to Michael Lohan, you can assume he’s recording every word for when he inevitably has a beef with you. We’ve heard Michael’s secretly recorded phone tapes of his daughter literally crying for help and his ex wife saying Lindsay needed to go to rehab. Now Lohan is leaking phone calls to Radar Online that show the many ways that Gosselin knowingly violated his contract with TLC.

Yesterday Radar posted a tape between Michael Lohan and Gosselin’s manager. The two were talking about all the deals they were working out for Jon. There was a deal with In Touch for which the manager got $5,000, and since he said Lohan’s take was 20% I would assume that his percentage was similar and that the deal was for six figures. (It’s unclear if Heller’s percentage is also 20%, but if so the deal would have been worth $100,000.) I’m pretty sure they’re talking about Jon’s In Touch cover story in August “I’m Tired of Being Blamed.” Jon’s manager Michael Heller also claimed he was working out a deal with E! for $75,000. An E! interview in August was canceled by Jon at the last minute, with rumors at the time that TLC had forced Jon to pull out. I think we can assume that this conversation was recorded in August given those two deals, which was when Lohan and Gosselin were still hanging out.

Radar also has another conversation between Jon and Michael in which they talk about the deals they’re working out. Jon mentions his exclusivity clause with TLC and seems to know that he’s violating it because he says “yeah, we’re f’cked.”

He also claims TLC got paid in side deals for two interviews with his family, in People and Good Housekeeping, a claim the network denies. Gosselin says with the faux outrage he’s so good at conjuring when it suits him “I put my kids out there to every pedophile on the planet and they never got paid for it.” He’s referring to the magazine profiles, not the show, because he said this right after he complained that “they struck side deals [with People and Good Housekeeping] and none of that money went to my kids.” This is ironic coming from a guy who took out a couple hundred grand from his joint checking account. It’s also pretty hypocritical from someone who willingly let his kids get videotaped for years but then complains about pedophiles when they’re in a magazine spread they don’t get paid for.

I could go on, but I’ll spare you. If you’re interested you can hear the tapes on Radar online. The bottom line is that TLC has a ton of material to use against Jon, thanks to his former good buddy Michael Lohan. Jon’s lawyer is a hack and I doubt he’ll successfully defend him against such good evidence.

    Good lord, this is a sickness with Michael Lohan. I’m surprised he is still able to get anyone on the phone, except maybe those people who try to sell you stuff. And even they would hang up in a hurry when they realised it was him. Someone needs to put this man in a nice white overall and a cozy padded cell. Stat.

  2. Firestarter says:

    Haha! That Michael Lohan is a tape recording MoFo isn’t he.

    He probably has tapes of his conversations ordering a pizza from Domino’s

  3. Bill Hicks is God says:

    The dude is a pestilence.

  4. Jazz says:

    WTF?! God Michael Lohan is a piece of shit! No wonder his kids hate him.

  5. snowball says:

    That whole, “don’t be surprised if you get fleas when you lie down with dogs?”

    Totally applies here. Both of these douches (and they give douches a bad name) are revolting mental midgets who see dollar signs everywhere.

  6. LolaBella says:

    Awww, douchebag betrayal. They deserve each other and I wish they would just fall off the face of the earth already.

  7. Lantana says:

    Gee. I guess there goes my dream of Lindsay and Jon Gosselin hooking up and living happily ever after with Michael.

  8. Vermithrax says:

    Once again they can all suck simultaneously.
    Good for them.

  9. Popcorny says:

    I’m almost in tears with laughter.
    What a pissa twist in Loserville -the town where I’d to see Gosselin rolling in the gutter of.
    So much so in fact that I can’t drum up the disgust for Lohan at this moment, just a hearty slap on the back and a beaming thank you for his making my celebrity-day.
    Gosselin’s kids have Kate, I fear for them not in my glee to see Jon destroyed.

  10. danielle says:

    this post makes me so happy. It’s dicky when this guy did this to his daughter, but to Gosselin? Hahahahaha – now you know how it feels to get screwed over by a douchebag – maybe you’ll have some empathy for your kids, girlfriends, even Kate!

  11. Rae says:

    I need to print out that picture of Jon Gosselin and put it up in my office. That way whenever I feel like skipping the gym after work, I can just look at his picture and it’ll be better than a kick in the ass.

  12. TaylorB says:

    So basically he tapes all of his phone conversations to hurt and embarass his friends and family when it suits his fancy? I didn’t think it was possible to have less respect for Michael Lohan, turns out I was wrong.

  13. maddie says:

    Is it not illegal in some states to tape someone with out their knowledge?

    I hope he is still on probation and that they can throw his skanky butt back into jail.

    What a scummy thing to do, I hope Lohan get his Karma up the wingwang.

  14. bella says:

    It’s hard to tell who’s the leader in this douche parade, but I have to say that I totally agree with Popcorny and danielle: how appropriate for Jon to be shat on by a fellow douche-bag!

    As for Lohan, dude must think he’s Deep Throat or something, I swear!

  15. bella says:

    And as far as Karma goes, I think Jon & Michael are neck-in-neck.

  16. gg says:

    Damn – no honor among thieves I guess?

  17. ligeia says:

    hahaha man this lohan guy is just so horrible. at least he doesn’t discriminate: it’s not just his daughter that he’s being a scumbag to. this could be the beginning of an epic saga: lohan vs gosselin!

  18. Maritza says:

    Jon will get what he deserves for hanging out with people like Lohan and Heller.

  19. bo says:

    You remember when they were like, there is a kid in that balloon? And it felt surreal, like it couldn’t be happening, and that’s how you knew something was up?

    I’m getting the same feeling with this. So much so that I am not clicking on the link… because I kind of can’t accept that the dude keeps leaking phone conversations. Is Michael Lohan even a real person? Or is it just Jamie Kennedy dressed up?

  20. Squirtle says:

    How come Michael never includes his voice in the recorded conversations he has leaked about Lindsey, Dina and Jon?

    Probably because whatever he is saying is just as bad…He is the lowest of the low!

  21. cara says:

    I thought it was illegal to record phone calls without the other person’s consent.

  22. Bambi says:

    This call is being monitored for douche assurance. . .

  23. NicoleAM says:

    WTF? What a bastard! I hope people learn from this and never hold a conversation w/ that douche again. He doesn’t even think twice about selling out his supposed friends and family.
