Kate Gosselin just got scrooged by her brother.
Kevin Kreider just testified in the child welfare hearing in PA that the 8 kids were forced to fake Xmas during the filming of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
Kreider claimed the production crew needed to get a shot, showing a big reaction when the kids came downstairs to unwrap their gifts.
So the crew made the kiddies fake a reaction, Kreider claims.
Kreider says the kids were psychologically confused ... why should they be different from Jon?
