Brooks Ayers' Lawyer Hits Back at 'Absolutely False' ABC Report
"The threat of the lawsuit exists" over 20/20 story calling Brooks a deadbeat dad.
Vicki Gunvalson recently told The Dish that her boyfriend Brooks Ayers was in the middle of fighting back against recent media attacks on him, namely a 20/20 interview with his ex-girlfriend who accused Brooks of running off on their child. Now he's doing just that.
In an interview with Ayers' lawyer, Alexander Rufus-Isaacs tells RadarOnline that the claims made by Nicolette Catanzarite and ABC during the segment are "absolutely false." He goes on to say that "while we have not filed a lawsuit yet, we have written to ABC demanding a retraction and informed them that the threat of the lawsuit exists and we are currently in discussions with them."
In the segment, Catanzarite, an ex-girlfriend of Ayers with whom he had a son, claimed that he left them and all of their bills and that he has abandoned his son, but Rufus-Isaacs says that it's Catanzarite who "won't allow him access for the time being."
The lawyer also had one parting shot for 20/20, saying it "purports to be a news program so viewers give it a lot of credibility because they believe it has been fully researched and is impartial ... Our view is that it is entertainment and painting it as a news program is misleading."
