"I'm not going to work there anymore because now the trust and the teamwork is gone," Jon told Dallas radio station 103.7 KVIL FM. "Because now someone took a picture of me...Thanks a lot, man! Now I gotta go through all of this stuff and now I gotta leave a job that I was passionate about."

Gosselin is still DJing, too! His next gig is July 22 in Quakertown, PA, according to his Instagram.
