Watch: Vicki Gunvalson Files Lawsuit Against Ex-BF Brooks Ayers

Vicki Gunvalson's relationship with Brooks Ayers has been over for years, but he's still not completely out of her life. 

The Real Housewives of Orange County star has filed a lawsuit against her infamous ex-boyfriend, who she dated for four years before announcing their breakup in August 2015. Just a few months later, E! News exclusively revealed Ayers had fabricated medical bills for purported cancer treatment at a Los Angeles hospital. 

While it's been years since the controversy, Gunvalson and Ayers are back in the headlines not over medicine, but money. According to legal documents obtained by E! News and filed in Clark County, Nev. court on April 11, the reality star has filed a lawsuit against Ayers for breach of written agreement, breach of verbal agreement, fraud, misrepresentation and other claims over money he has allegedly failed to pay back to his former girlfriend.

In the documents, the star accused Ayers of failing to pay back $184,899 she loaned him in 2011 and not adhering to a written agreement they made in 2016, in which he was to provide an accounting of his income. She further alleged he has not repaid her $81,652 she loaned him for attorneys fees stemming from litigation between 2013 and 2015. 

As for the fraud accusation, Ayers "intentionally represented to Plaintiff that he would promptly repay the funds borrowed from Plaintiff, when in fact, Defendant had no intention of ever repaying either of the loans," the lawsuit penned by her attorneys claims.

The lawsuit alleges Gunvalson has suffered damages in excess of $15,000 and now has to pay accountants, auditors, collection agents, attorneys, court costs and others to get the money back. 

Gunvalson is seeking an accounting of Ayers' finances, as well as a sum in excess of $15,000 to be determined at trial, "reasonable" attorneys' fees, costs incurred or to be incurred, interest, and punitive and exemplary damages. 

E! News has reached out to Ayers for comment.
