Vicki Gunvalson and her boyfriend Brooks Ayers are facing a big lawsuit in Las Vegas, RadarOnline reports. Vicki and Brooks are being accused of stiffing a business partner that was involved in Vicki’s Vodka, and are being sued for $250,000! Radar obtained court documents filed on Friday where professional poker player Robert Williamson III claims Vicki breached contract, committed fraud, failed to live up to good faith dealings, misrepresented herself and conspired to unjustly enrich herself and partner her partner, Brooks. Ayers is named as a co-defendant in the suit.

The documents state Vicki gifted 16.67% of a business, named Vicki’s Vodka, which was established in 2012, to Brooks without the knowledge of her business partner, Robert Williamson. Radar reports, Brooks then sold his stock back to Williamson in an act of fraud.

“He claimed to need the money for unpaid IRS and child support obligations in order to prevent his imminently going to jail for non-payment,” the documents state. “An agreement was reached, while Williamson was in Clark County, Nevada, for the purchase of Brooks’ interest for the sum of $50,000.00 which is memorialized in writing in an agreement dated March 6, 2013.” Then, Williamson claims “it was learned later that Brooks and Vicki had used this purchase as a way to obtain additional money from Williamson in bad faith without the intent to honor the intent of the transaction.” The lawsuit states, “Upon information and belief, it was the intent of Brooks and Vicki to lure Williamson into the purchase of Brooks interest without the good faith intent to move forward with the company and make it successful.”

  1. WOW!! thats really nuts!! I didn’t think that Vicki would ever do some manipulative business things like this. That Brooks is a piece of work!! Girlfriend needs to learn a hard lesson!!

  2. Well now I guess Vicki has herself in a pickle with the”love of her life” Brooks is a snake and all her family tried to tell her to stay away from him, But it does sound like she knew what he was doing and she was helping him lets hope they get there just dues. But way is she so ready to cheat someone just to pay off his back child support, and why does it seem that a lot of the men on the show are dead-beat-dads???

  3. I’m guessing Vicki didn’t know it was a scam. I’m not a fan of hers but I don’t think there is anything in her past that suggests she’d risk the money she’s made legitimately or going to jail. But I do think it smacks of everything her daughter was trying to tell her about Brooks. He’s a leach if he’s taking her money (stock) and he’s shady. He’s been to jail before and looks like he might be going again.

  4. Come on Vickie you know better! Honestly girl, you should have listened to your family and friends. They were right and they are still right……dump him, before it’s to late!

  5. It sounds to me like Williamson agreed to it all until Vicki’s Vodka failed, now he is bitter that he lost even more money in the deal. This is even more proof that Brianna and Ryan are spot on! Brookes is piece of work and I can’t believe Vicki is still standing behind this idiot.

  6. It’s funny to me that sheade snide remarks about a about tamra going into business with Eddie, all the while she’s doing the same thing but with a LOSER to boot!!!

  7. Vicki claims this is a “frivolous” lawsuit. If this is the case, she can easily prove no fraud was committed by producing the documents that would need to be issued by the LLC to account for the legal transfer: 1) the document signed by she and Williamson authorizing the transfer of 16.67% of her shares to Brooks Ayers, 2) the revised LLC formation document legally delineating the members, their membership shares, and the amount each member contributed toward their shares, and 3) the K-1 issued to Brooks Ayers for IRS purposes. Even if it’s a gift, it still needs to have a K-1 issued and be claimed on tax returns. Since Brooks then sold his 16.67% to Williamson for $50K, the LLC will still need to reflect this sale and report it to the IRS. Since Brooks Ayers received a $50K gift, then flipped it for another $50K, he can’t claim a loss on value (well, okay, legally he can’t) so will be taxed on the capital gain of $50K.

    This is all routine basic LLC governance/reporting stuff, and the lack of these documents would be fraud. Securities fraud. A securities fraud violation is very serious stuff for a person who sells insurance and securities in their primary business.

    The hell of it is when you read the PDF of the document obtained by Radar Online and see the payment installment schedule from Williamson to Ayers, you see that Ayers had borrowed $5,000 from Williamson which was repaid by this sale, and that $3,000 was to be paid to cover expenses for Ayers to attend the Kentucky Derby!

    If she could produce any of the documentation above, Williamson (who holds a BBA in Finance himself) certainly wouldn’t waste his money taking her to court. If it’s true that she then wanted to redistribute the shares Williamson just bought, to give herself back the shares she gifted to Ayers and regain her 50% from her now 33% position, that devalues his share value and financial position in the venture, while increasing hers. And that’s fraud.
