jontlcinjunction200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - A judge hearing TLC's breach-of-contract suit against Jon Gosselin yesterday ordered the father-of-eight to stop making public appearances.

TLC argued that his numerous paid and unpaid appearance on television, or at parties, ruined the "wholesome" image of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

Jon was a no-show at the hearing yesterday which took place in Maryland (where TLC's parent company, Discovery Communications, is headquartered.)

TLC issued the following statement:

    "The Court has validated our view that Mr. Gosselin has a valid, binding contract and that he has breached it repeatedly. Step one -- getting the court to order Mr. Gosselin to comply with his contractual obligations -- has been accomplished," TLC said. "Any further breaches going forward will be violations of a court order. We look forward to the next phase of the litigation, which is to pursue our claim for damages resulting from Mr. Gosselin's numerous breaches."
