TLC stopped filming the Gosselin children on the recently renamed Kate Plus Eight after Jon Gosselin's lawyer said the production staff was banned from the family home.

Jon Gosselin asked TLC to stop filming his children and to leave his property just days after the network renamed Jon & Kate Plus 8 and announced it would focus more on Kate Gosselin, according to The Insider.

"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," Mark Jay Heller, Gosselin's lawyer, told the show.

The cable channel said in a statement: "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."
