“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, have been named in a fraud, and breach of contract, suit, which could hault the opening of their new venue in West Hollywood, Radar Online reported on Aug. 14.
According to the report, LuLu Restaurant Group and its owners, Ryan Carrillo and Andrew Gruver had plans to open a gay sports bar called Bar Varsity in West Hollywood in 2009.
The group reportedly entered into an agreement with Elie Samaha to open the venue at his Santa Monica property.
However, trouble started for Lisa Vanderpump’s organization when “Samaha had represented to Plaintiffs that he would start funding the project so that demolition and renovation could move forward, but he failed to do so,” the lawsuit claims.
“Plaintiff Carillo received a phone call from Carol Braidy, stating that the location had been leased to Defendants Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd….and indicating that the Vanderpump Defendants were not partners with Samaha.”
