What can I do against a guy that told my husband-boyfriend, we had sex when we didn't and as a result of it we split?

Asked over 1 year ago - Orlando, FL

My husband-boyfriend have been living together for five years and as result of this guy and his lie, we broke up because of the daily fight about this matter. Its been a living hell full of physically,emotionally and mental abuse from my bf towards me. I'm tired and I have being in this situation for four years and even if I swear, he won't believe me because his brothers know the guy too and he told them the same lie. I'm out of the relationship but also ready to confront all this somehow. Thank you in advance.
