Kate Gosselin’s marriage to Jon Gosselin ended in 2009, but the drama continues.

On Thursday, the Kate Plus 8 star was ordered to pay more than $10,000 to a Pennsylvania marriage therapist who allegedly counseled her and then-husband Jon, according to Pennsylvania’s Standard Speaker.

Sylvia Lafair, of Creative Energy Options, says she entered into a verbal agreement to fly to Los Angeles and provide counseling for the couple in March 2009. However, Lafair states that Gosselin, 36, refused to pay for her travel fees and services.

Gosselin testified that she never entered into an agreement with Lafair, who was solely Jon’s therapist, adding that Lafair was only asked to California because Jon refused to take the trip unless she accompanied the couple.

Gosselin’s attorney has filed an appeal in the case.
