Reality TV star Kate Gosselin has been ordered to pay $10,000 to a marriage therapist in a dispute over counseling. The outstanding amount was allegedly owed to counselor Sylvia Lafair for services given to the Gosselins and travel expenses to their home, before they split.
We earlier brought you details of the dispute of Gosselin with Sylvia Lafair. The counselor says that she flew to Los Angeles when Gosselin asked her to counsel her and her then-husband Jon Gosselin in March 2009. She alleges that she worked with the couple but received no payment.
Lafair took out a lawsuit against Gosselin last year, alleging that the star of “Kate Plus 8” didn’t pay for the services or travel expenses, as was agreed before she traveled to the home of the reality TV couple. Before the split, the couple had starred in several seasons of “Kate and Jon Plus 8.”
Last week, Gosselin testified in court that she never had a contract with Lafair, the head of Creative Energy Options in White Haven, Pennsylvania, about 50 miles from Gosselin’s home in Sinking Spring.
Magisterial District Judge Gerald Feissner disagreed with Gosselin and ordered her to pay Lafair’s company around $10,300.
That is not the end of the matter, though. Gosselin’s attorney has filed an appeal.
