Oh Victoria! I was really hoping that you knew what you were doing with this Brooks character. But apparently, you should have listened to your kid. Now he has gone and got you in a legal dispute over your Vodka business. Oy Vey.
How will you get out of this one, Vicki? Y’all click through for the tea… sigh..
UPDATE: It Looks like Vicki has deleted her Twitter and Facebook accounts…
In court documents filed on Friday, obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, professional poker player Robert Williamson III alleges Gunvalson, 51, breached contract, committed fraud, failed to live up to good faith dealings, misrepresented herself and conspired to unjustly enrich herself and Brooks who is also named as a co-defendant in the suit.
The story goes Gunvalson gifted 16.67 percent of Vicki’s Vodka to Ayers without the knowledge of her business partner Williamson. Ayers then went crying to the business partner saying that he needed to sell his interest in the business to pay is child support and back taxes. So the poker dude bought Brooks’ percentage for $50,000 in March of 2013. Allegedly, Brooks and Vicki had used this purchase as a way to obtain additional money from RW III in bad faith without the intent to honor the intent of the transaction.
Williamson allegedly that Gunvalson then demanded that ownership be returned to a 50-50 split between them. Essentially, this would mean that he just gave Brooks 50K for no reason and remains a 50/50 partner and Ayers and Gunvalson essentially committed fraud. According to the documents, Gunvalson and Ayers have not acted in good faith to create a successful business and refuse to cooperate with Williamson and come through with their promises. Some of the promises included discussing the product on The Real Housewives of Orange County and promoting the product on Watch What Happens Live where Vicki had promised to be the bartender.
My initial reaction to this is that Vicki is not this stupid. She runs a successful insurance company by herself and knows business law. This sounds to me like Brooks has managed to fuck up her Vodka business and that she may not have even know what was happening. It really doesn’t matter though because the guy has already invested 250K in the venture and he’s not just going to call it a loss and walk away.
