(Newser) – Jon Gosselin’s popularity is sure to skyrocket now that Radar has released a recording of him talking about the pedophiles who love his kids. In a phone call with—who else?—Michael Lohan, the octodad gripes about deals he believes TLC made with two magazines that only lined its coffers, saying, “I put my kids out there to every pedophile on the planet and they never got paid for it? It’s disgusting.”

He also claims TLC is afraid of him, and boasts that if he reveals what he knows “their stock would tank.” Of course, he turned out to be wrong on all counts, as TLC was not paid for the magazine pieces, confirmed Radar, and the network isn't scared of Gosselin—whom they are now suing. One last quote that also turned out to be false? “I’m not stupid,” Jon tells Lohan.
