Lisa Vanderpump Reaches Settlement In Worm Infested Puppy Lawsuit: Report
Lisa Vanderpump has come to an agreement with a woman who accused her of selling a sick puppy.
The Vanderpump Rules boss, 61, and her company Vanderpump Dogs, have privately come to a settlement with a customer named Kimberly Dillon who claimed the store sold her a worm infested dachshund puppy at their West Hollywood location in July 2019.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, both parties have come to an agreement and Dillon will move to dismiss all claims within 45 days.

In the lawsuit, the woman said employees told her the puppy had all his required shots and necessary treatments even showing her false immunization record and a false deworming certificate. However, after bringing the dog home, Dillon alleged the animal began acting strange and “expelling large live worms while defecating.”
After bringing the puppy to the vet, it was discovered that the pet had a serious worm infection which led to expelling, “live worms and eggs from her mouth, vagina and anus." The vet diagnosed her with intestinal parasites.

Soon after, Dillon filed a lawsuit against the former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her company for fraud and negligence. Vanderpump and Vanderpump Dogs responded back to the filing accusing Dillon of failing to “exercise reasonable care and diligence to avoid loss and to minimize damages.”

“[Dillon’s] unlawful, immoral, careless, negligent and other wrongful conduct, Plaintiff should be barred from recovering against this answering Defendant,” the motion filed against Dillon stated.
As OK! previously reported, this has not been the Bravo star's only legal woe as of late. In December of last year, Vanderpump settled a $250k lawsuit brought by a former employee of TomTom and Pump who accused the reality stars of violating California labor laws for allegedly “not paying wages” or “providing meal breaks.”
The suit — filed on behalf of former employees — accused the restauranteurs of "manipulating or editing time records to show lesser hours than actually worked.”
