The fight between reality TV's most famous dad, Jon Gosselin, and TLC is finally over.

"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. "

A source close to the situation says that the network rules out a return of the hit show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, that made the family household names.

The ugly back-and-forth between the network and Gosselin included a lawsuit filed by TLC against Gosselin for alleged breach of contract. It claimed that by making paid and unpaid TV appearances without the cable network's permission he was in violation of his agreement with the channel.

Later, Gosselin filed a $5-million counterclaim, saying that the network had damaged his career by preventing him from working with other media outlets. Gosselin had also forbidden the network from filming his eight children with Kate Gosselin.
