Reality Dad Jon Gosseling and TLC, the channel that launched his career, have buried the hatchet.

The two parties had been locked in a legal battle since the channel yanked "Jon & Kate Plus 8" following Gosselin's ugly breakup with wife Kate. TLC sued Gosselin for breach of contract and Gosselin countersued for $5 million, saying the network hurt his career. The father of eight, who went on a high-profile romance and booze binge following  his divorce last year, had tried to prevent the network from taping his children.

People magazine reported that the sides reached a settlement, though terms were not released.

"TLC has reached a settlement with Jon Gosselin and will be undertaking procedural steps to conclude the litigation," the network said in a statement Wednesday. "All terms of the settlement are confidential. The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC. "
