Brooks Ayers Defends Himself Against Alleged Cancer Lies On Twitter As Fraud Investigation Report Surfaces

Lindsay Cronin

Brooks Ayers has taken to Twitter to defend himself against the ongoing claims of his possibly fake cancer diagnosis. In a series of tweets, Brooks Ayers spoke to his Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, Meghan King Edmonds, slamming her for his shocking claims against him, and denying her message to fans about him previously lying about cancer.

In Brooks Ayers’ first tweet to Edmonds, he told her, “You don’t ‘know’ anything. You need to quit using a public forum to promote your agenda. What about support?”

He then shared a second tweet, in which he simply said, “Nope,” when she told fans he had lied in the past.

During the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Briana Culberson, the daughter of Brooks Ayers’ ex-girlfriend, Vicki Gunvalson, was seen alleging he had previously told her he was suffering from pancreatic cancer, when in fact he actually had pancreatitis.

Last month, during a separate episode of the show, Brooks Ayers attempted to silence the ongoing speculation into his stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma by sharing his medical records with Tamra Barney. However, according to Barney, she didn’t understand the terminology used, and didn’t believe blood cancer led to masses. Then, later in the same episode, Edmonds told the other cast members the documents were likely “forged” by Brooks Ayers.

Weeks after that episode aired, a source spoke out, claiming Brooks Ayers could soon be investigated for fraud due to the records in question.

“Newport Imagine is considering investigating [Brooks Ayers] for fraud,” a source told Real Mr. Housewife on October 8.

“Since [Brooks Ayers’] documents were shown on the air they have been getting non-stop phone calls about him and the documents he showed. They are starting to find this annoying… [And] since Newport Imaging doesn’t do the type of scan [Brooks Ayers] showed on camera, they are possibly contemplating investigating him for fraud, as he used their logo.”

Following Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Brooks Ayers and his longtime girlfriend, Gunvalson, parted ways after four years together. In a joint statement shared by the couple on Gunvalson’s Facebook page, she and Brooks Ayers claimed to have undergone couples counseling prior to calling it quits. They also claimed to remain supportive of one another, despite the breakup.

Also after wrapping filming on Season 10, Brooks Ayers, who has since moved to Florida from Southern California, where he had been living with Gunvalson, filmed a special one-on-one segment with Andy Cohen, which will air as part of the upcoming reunion special later this month.

In addition to a fraud investigation possibly being launched against Brooks Ayers, he may soon be headed to court with Edmonds, due to his potential lawsuit against her. At the end of last month, following Edmonds’ ongoing commentary about Brooks Ayers’ alleged cancer lies, Brooks Ayers had his attorney send the reality star a letter of cease and desist, demanding she refrain from speaking of Brooks Ayers and his diagnosis, which she has refused to do.

In response to Brooks Ayers’ legal threats, Edmonds recently spoke to People Magazine, acknowledging his legal letter and proclaiming she had no plans to back down from her statements against him. Edmonds also told the magazine Brooks Ayers didn’t have the guts to sue her, because “he knows he’s a liar.”

For more Brooks Ayers, tune into The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 finale on Monday, October 12, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
