Bart Carlson and Yukon Construction filed a lawsuit against 'RHOSLC' star Lisa Barlow.

On Wednesday, June 19, 2024, Bart Carlson and Yukon Construction — the Park City, Utah, homebuilding company where Carlson serves as president — filed a lawsuit against Lisa Barlow and her businesses, Vida Tequila and Luxe Marketing. The suit alleges that the self-proclaimed "Queen of Sundance" owes more than $400,000 in loans.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Bart asserted that Lisa owes him exactly $410,842.36, a sum he lent her between May 2010 and February 2018. Bart explained that Lisa initially sought financial help for business expenses in 2010, and because of their longstanding friendship, they did not establish a specific repayment timetable.

The complaint, as reported by The Salt Lake Tribune, alleged that Yukon lent Lisa and her two companies $171,836.37 between May 2010 and June 2011. Additionally, Bart personally loaned an additional $87,100 between September 2010 and October 2015.

The lawsuit also claimed that Bart opened an American Express account for Lisa and covered charges amounting to $119,585.99 between 2011 and 2017. It also stated that he paid $32,320 in 2015 to settle a loan on Lisa's Range Rover. Altogether, these loans amounted to a whopping $410,842.36.

Bart noted that whenever he asked Lisa for the money, she allegedly stated that neither she nor her companies could afford to repay the debt. As a result, Carlson is now pursuing legal action to force Lisa to hand over the money he alleges she owes him.

Shortly after the reports emerged, Lisa issued a statement to TMZ vehemently denying the allegations made by her former friend.

"Bart Carlson was once a business partner in a restaurant in Park City and, I thought, a friend," Lisa told the outlet. "I am deeply saddened that he has decided nine years after our restaurant business ceased to claim that I owe him money. To be very clear, the claim that I owe Bart or his company money is untrue."

Lisa continued, "I pay my bills and obligations, and I always have. In addition, Bart has no interest in Luxe Marketing or Vida Tequila and did not invest in either business. I look forward to the truth coming out, and I intend to hold Bart fully accountable for any damage this personal attack may cause me or my businesses."
