Gretchen Rossi Sued For $100k!

Gretchen Rossi Sued

Bummer!

Looks like the Real Housewives Of Orange County star is being taken to court for breach of contract, fraud, deceit and conspiracy. Those are pretty nefarious sounding allegations for a housewife, we have to say!

She and her also-reality-star boyfriend Slade Smiley (how does that name not prove evil villainy?!) had this lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court by Ronann Myers. Ronann used to be Gretchen's make-up artist, friend and business partner, until things went awry!

Here's what Myers is claiming:

[I]n February 2009 he and Gretchen decided to form a make-up company together with the agreement that the profits would be split 50/50. She claims that both invested $15k in the venture and filed documents to form their company.

Ronann never signed a partnership agreement with Rossi, insisting though that the two had an oral agreement. Ronann says that he tried to have the partnership agreement signed, but claims Smiley put the kabosh on that.

And here's what the lawsuit actually states:

"From February 2009 onward, Rossi and Smiley engaged in an elaborate scheme to defraud Plaintiff out of her interest in the make-up Line.

"Rossi and Smiley conspired to exploit Plaintiff's experience in, knowledge of and contacts within the make-up industry to create, design, launch and promote ‘Gretchen Christine Beaute.’ Once Rossi and Smiley obtained what they needed from Plaintiff, they planned to ‘cut her off without a dime.’ Their plan was premeditated."

Oh snap! Could Gretchen and Smiley really have the guts and will to pull something like that off?

Other than money, what would Myers have to gain from this otherwise? That makes us think there might be at least SOME validity to it. We'll have to keep a close eye on the court showdown to really find out, though! (Which we will!)

Myers is seeking $100k in damages, attorneys’ fees, and compensatory damages, and claims that Rossi removed $2183.00 out of a joint business account without permission, while depositing some profits into a paypal account that Myers didn't even have access to.

What a messy mess! We just hope the truth comes out, and that justice is served! Ha!

Do U think Gretchen could have done this??

    As much as Slade and Wretchen disgust me, the other party was an idiot! No such thing as an "oral" contract.

    she is too ditsy to come up with a premeditated scheme like that. i'm sure he is the mastermind behind that plot..

    I remember seeing this woman on the show working with Gretchen so yeah I do believe. Also if you read online several people were freaked out that their receipt came from Slade's paypal.

    SHE'S with this douchebag now? Wow he gets passed around more than a collection plate at church!

    i don't think she is ditzy at all. I think she is very smart. She tries to come off all sweet but she has a vicious streak in her and i believe this is all her doing!

    They are both soooo annoying, especially him. He's greasy as hell. Gold digger!!

    Slade thought of the scam.
    -
    Typical Orange County Guy on the downward spiral, when all their own ventures fall flat.
    -
    Now he's mooching off Gretchen in her little crappy leased condo.
    A long way from when the show started.

    My OCG took me for $300K. It almost wiped me out.

    Oh come on, there is no way this is true. I don't believe for a 2nd the woman went in half and all she had to do was force it by a lawyer for something to be signed. You don't orally agree to anything. Her own stupid fault!

    Why Ronann should have the access to the paypall that actually he didn't even sign the agreement with Gretchen? Who believes what this guy claimed? A hundred millions? Gretchen just started the company with Christine, and this guy sued for 100 millions? He is just a greedy human being. I don't believe in such an oral agreement especially when it's dealing with establishing a company together. Good he didn't even sign any agreement because sooner or later he will be a problem in the business. Sorry just my 2 cents.
