Kate Gosselin's Marriage Counselor Slams Her For Not Paying Therapy Bills! Exclusive

Thu, April 7, 2011 5:24pm EDT by 10 Comments

Kate is being sued for allegedly not paying her share of her couples-counseling sessions with Jon Gosselin. Are you shocked?

Kate Gosselin has been served! HollywoodLife.com spoke to Dr. Sylvia Lafair, author of the self-help book Don’t Bring It To Work, who reveals why she slapped Kate with a small-claims suit. 

“I did this because I believe people need to be held accountable,” Dr. Lafair tells us. “We all need to be held accountable for agreements that we make and that’s why this was filed … it’s for services rendered that were never handled. Jon is handling his part.” Dr. Lafair wouldn’t comment on any of the specifics.

Dr. Lafair, who owns The Country Place Retreat in White Haven, Pa. and went on to be Jon’s leadership coach. She has worked in in marriage and family therapy for 40 years.

Before flying to counsel Jon and Kate in LA, Dr. Lafair was working with Kate and the mom-of-eight. Kate requested Dr. Lafair fly to the West Coast because her busy schedule wouldn’t permit her to do the session at her Reading, Pa., home.

Dr. Lafair confirms she traveled to LA, did the counseling with the couple but was never paid for the work or her travel costs, although it was part of their agreement.

As we told you earlier, the complaint has been filed by Creative Energy Options, a Pennsylvania-based mediation group in the amount of $10,476.

I smell nothing but a BIG FAT LIE with DEADBEAT JON and crazy Dr. LAFAKE behind. You wont discuss Jon but feel free to discuss Kate. Why? Because you telling a LIE. Who in the world except DUMB Jon would pay $10,000 to a person who couldn’t save her own mariage. Why would Kate even TRUST this woman. Check out that bedside manner. YOU WILL GET NO HELP FROM KATE WITH YOUR BOOK! LOL! Maybe she gave Jon a break because he introduced her to his little STUBBY. LMAO!

Why would Kate see this therapist in PA and then request that she fly to CA for more therapy sessions if she didn’t trust her or want her services? Why is Jon dumb for trying to save his marriage with therapy? Why is he dumb for paying his portion of the bill? Do you believe that a marriage counselor should only be paid if the clients’ marriage is saved? Why are you so consumed with hatred for Jon, a person you do not know? YOU sound beyond dumb and in need of psychological help yourself by spewing your ridiculous comments. Did you ride the short bus to school? Geez

Fly the therapist to California, maybe she thought that TLC was paying for this? I can’t believe that she would even listen to a therapist, she is too much in control, she doesn’t want to change because if she did she would still be married she likes the fame the fame won out over her marriage how awesome is that!!! loser

Anybody with good sense should know that if Kate didn’t owe this money the lawsuit would never have been filed, and the kind Dr. would be suing Jon too. All these uninformed, uneducated, and narrow minded Kate supporters think Kate is above all this. I’ve got news for you, she’s not. Kate makes people wait for their money. It was reported that when they sold the old house, the water bill of over $1,000 was months and months past due! She must think if she makes them wait, they’ll just forget it. Her kids have made her millions and I bet they never see a penny of it. She hoards money and and thinks the world owes her a living…

Sharon hate to break it to you, but lawsuits are filed everyday over disputes regarding unpaid bills. Sometimes it is the case of a person evading a bill, but often there is a dispute as to whether the money is owed. We don’t know the full story.Kate may have a good reason for not feeling responsible for this debt.

As for Jon not being sued, Sylvia may have worked out a payment plan with Jon or maybe she just isn’t pursuing because of friendship or the fact that Jon can’t pay the bill. Lastly, you have no way of knowing that Kate “hoards” money. Geez.

I think this is Jon’s debt, but because Sylvia is friends with Jon, she doesn’t want to go after him for it. Plus, she wants to get her name in the paper! Kate’s lawyers will take of this.

By the way, Kate’s on Twitter! kateplusmy8

I see you’re not beyond inventing a storyline.

Okaaaay… You think it’s Jon’s bill, but the Dr doesn’t want to sue him out of friendship, so she’s suing kate to collect Jon’s debt? Listen to yourself. Ridiculous.
