Real Housewives of Orange County Vicki Gunvalson must face lawsuit against her for breach of contract and fraud. Gunvalson’s partner in her vodka business is planning to re-file his lawsuit against her.
Robert Williamson III is re-filing his lawsuit in a Las Vegas court where he is alleging Gunvalson committed fraud, breached contract, failed to live up to good faith dealings, misrepresented herself and conspired to unjustly enrich herself with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers.
Last July, Williamson and Gunvalson reached a settlement agreement and he dismissed his lawsuit against her without prejudice. However, now that communications have allegedly broken down between Williamson and Gunvalson, he is adamant about re-filing against her.
When a lawsuit is dismissed without prejudice, the rights or privileges of the plaintiff are not considered to be lost or waives, allowing them to re-file at a later date.
A source close to the situation claims that Vicki Gunvalson is trying to back out on the settlement. “The working relationship between Robert and Vicki has broken down yet again and she is attempting to back track on the terms and conditions of the settlement. As a result, Robert is planning to re-file the suit against Vicki. It’s back on.”
“Unless Vicki makes a three hundred and sixty degree turn, pronto, she’s facing the very real prospect of being a defendant in this lawsuit, again.”
Brooks Ayers who dated Vicki Gunvalson until recently is trying to have the case against him thrown out. Robert Williamson claims that Vicki went behind his back and gifted 16.67 percent of their business, Vicki’s Vodka, to Ayers.
Ayers then turned around and sold it to Williamson constituting fraud. The court papers state, “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.”
“An agreement was reached, while RWIII [Williamson] was in Clark County, Nevada, for the purchase of Brooks’ interest for the sun of $50,000.00 which is memorialized in writing in an agreement dated March 6, 2013.”
Then, “it was learned later that Brooks and Vicki had used this purchase as a way to obtain additional money from RWIII is bad faith without the intent to honor the intent of the transaction.”
Williamson goes on to claim that Vicki Gunvalson later demanded that the ownership of the business be returned to a 50-50 split. He claims that it was at this time that he originally filed the lawsuit against her and Ayers.
