A northeastern Pennsylvania judge says reality TV star Kate Gosselin must pay a local marriage therapist more than $10,000 in a dispute over counseling.

Sylvia Lafair contends she flew to Los Angeles at Gosselin's request to counsel her and then-husband Jon Gosselin in March 2009. The pair starred in "Jon and Kate Plus 8" before divorcing.

Lafair sued last year after Kate Gosselin didn't pay for the services or travel.

Gosselin testified last week that she never had a contract with Lafair, who heads Creative Energy Options in White Haven, Pa. Gosselin lives about 50 miles away in Sinking Spring.

Magisterial District Judge Gerald Feissner ruled May 13 that Gosselin must pay Lafair's company about $10,300.

Gosselin's attorney tells The Standard-Speaker of Hazleton that he appealed on Tuesday.
