Erika, 49, and Tom Girardi’s, 81, divorce is allegedly a sham [insert shock horror and amazement], according to a new lawsuit.
Erika who stars as one of the mean girls on the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and her estranged lawyer husband are being sued by Edelson PC, a class action firm, on behalf of a number of Boeing plane crash victims for allegedly embezzling settlement funds meant to help the victims of Lion Air Flight 610, per federal court documents filed on Wednesday.
The suit claimed that Tom and his law firm Girardi Keese “are on the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds” and his “need to fund outrageous lifestyles for himself and his soon-to-be ex-wife Erika Jayne” is the reason for her spontaneous divorce filing earlier this year.
“While Erika publicly filed for divorce this month, on information and belief, that ‘divorce’ is simply a sham attempt to fraudulently protect Tom’s and Erika’s money from those that seek to collect on debts owed by Tom and his law firm GK,” the lawsuit alleged.
The lawsuit claimed that this is not the first time Tom kept funds meant for clients for himself, as he “continues to use that money to find his and Erika’s lavish lifestyle, release personal guarantees, pay down loans, route the money to friends and family and satisfy other outstanding debts.”
The lawsuit even cites Erika’s song as Erika Jayne, “Exxpen$ive” and her claims that it costs $40,000 a month for her glam, as reasons for the need to embezzle the funds in the suit.
The Girardi’s do not have a prenuptial agreement, Erika, recently asked the court to award her spousal support from Tom.
It is very clear that Erika will shut down any talk about this on RHOBH when production resumes. You all saw how she reacted when asked about her son in a previous season.
Edelson PC declined to comment.
A rep for Erika had not seen the filing at the time of publication. Right.
