A woman, namely Joan Lile, 81, has reportedly sued Vicki Gunvalson over allegations of fraud linked to her insurance company.

According to court documents obtained, the woman accused the Real Housewives of Orange County star, 57, of lying to her for more than 20 years.

Lile reportedly filed a lawsuit against the television personality and her company, Coto Insurance and Financial Services, which she founded in 1991, for fraud, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

According to The Blast reports, the 82-year-old woman bought a long-term care insurance policy from the RHOC star in 1996.

Lile claimed that the reality star assured her and her husband, Robert Lile, that the agreement would cover future medical premiums after the death of one of the spouses.

However, Lile alleged that Gunvalson lied about the "Lifetime Waiver of All Premiums of a Surviving Spouse" clause. The Bravo personality allegedly preyed "on the confidence and trust" Lile and her husband.

The documents claims,

[Lile] paid ever-increasing premiums yet was ultimately denied the specific benefit on which the purchase of the policy was predicated.

However, Gunvalson "fraudulently and intentionally misrepresented" what she sold Lile.

The papers reportedly state,

[the benefit] was of the 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.

Robert died in 2017, and when Joan went to claim the insurance at Coto Insurance and Financial Services, the company denied her claim.
