Vicki Gunvalson appeared totally unbothered on Friday, April 5 while dining with her longtime girlfriend. The Real Housewives of Orange County star finds herself in some legal trouble, as an 82-year-old woman is suing her for fraud, intentional infliction of emotional distress and so much more. Read on for all the details.
A woman named Joan Lile is suing Vicki, 57, and her company, Coto Insurance & Financial Services according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
She has accused Vicki of fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract.
Joan claimed she and her husband Robert purchased a policy of long-term care insurance in 1996 on the basis that all future medical premiums for the surviving spouse would be covered by it.
The 82-year-old said that Vicki sold them a policy that she promised had an inclusion on the special provision “Lifetime Waive of All Premiums for a Surviving Spouse.”
Further, “This SWOP benefit was of utmost importance to the Liles because Robert Lile was significantly older than Joan Lile and wanted, above all else, to know that his wife would be protected financially upon his passing.”
Joan accused the mother-of-three of fraudulently and willfully misrepresenting her the policies for over 20 years, “throughout which time (Lile) paid ever-increasing premiums yet was ultimately denied the specific benefit on which the purchase of the policy was predicated.”
Robert passed in 2017 and Joan claimed she tried to exercise the SWOP benefit. She was denied by the insurance company and continued to be charged policy premiums.
Joan is suing for unspecified damages. The “OG of the OC” has yet to comment on the matter and the case is ongoing.
Vicki seemed unbothered by all the legal drama. She spent her Friday night in Florida with a high school girlfriend, where they dined and dished at an Italian hotspot.
