Broke Brooks! Ayers Hit With Tax Lien After Vicki Gunvalson Claims He Owes Her $266K
Brooks Ayers has been hit with more legal trouble. After Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson sued him for fraud, claiming he owes her over $266,000, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal he's in debt to the state too!
A County Clerk Recorder for Sacramento County Court confirmed to RadarOnline.com that Ayers has been hit with a state tax lien for $14,874.95 on September 20, 2018.
The clerk confirmed the office has not recorded a release for the lien.
The state tax lien comes after Ayers' ex-girlfriend Gunvalson, 57, sued him for fraud on March 29, 2019.
In court papers obtained from Clark County District Court in Nevada, Gunvalson sued her ex for breach of written agreement, breach of verbal agreement, fraud and more.
"Commencing in or about 2011, Plaintiff Gunvalson and Defendant Ayers entered into a series of loans wherein Ayers borrowed various amounts of money from Gunvalson and Gunvalson agreed to loan such amounts to Ayers," the court papers read.
The parties executed a written agreement regarding the loans on February 18, 2016."
"Ayers acknowledged the balance due on the loans in the amount of $184,899 to Gunvalson," the papers read. "Ayers agreed to provide an accounting of all sums paid to him in various income streams."
The Bravo star claimed Ayers breached the agreement when he didn't pay her back. He has also allegedly failed to provide accounting as stated in the terms of the agreement.
In 2013, the two were involved in litigation in Clark County, Nevada. They incurred legal fees and expenses from legal representation through April 2015.
"Ayers was unable to pay his portion of the attorneys' fees and costs incurred on his behalf in the litigation," the court papers read. "The Parties entered into a verbal agreement wherein Ayers borrowed $81,652,97 from Gunvalson to pay for the legal services, attorneys' fees and costs incurred in the Las Vegas litigation."
Ayers has "failed and continued to fail to remedy or make good on the said account to Gunvalson."
She claimed Ayers "had no intention of ever repaying either of the loans."
"Defendant committed the alleged acts knowingly, willingly, intentionally, maliciously and with the conscious disregard of the rights of Plaintiff," she wrote.
She accused him of "concealing and continuing to conceal accounting of his records" in an attempt to "intentionally defraud and oppress Plaintiff."
She is asking for the sum in excess of $15,000 to be determined at trial, reasonable attorneys' fees, costs incurred or to be incurred, interest and more.
Gunvalson and Ayers split in August 2015 after he admitted to forging medical records that claimed he suffered from Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Despite forging the medical files, he maintains he was diagnosed with cancer.
He is currently living in Mississippi with wife Christy.
