Tom Girardi may have just implicated his soon to be ex-wife, Erika Girardi in his massive legal struggles.
Paparazzi saw Tom, 82, leaving a two-hour lunch with a friend at an upscale restaurant and asked, “Did Erika know anything?”
The former lawyer briefly paused before he shockingly threw Erika under the bus, “I think she does,” he stated.
The admission is to be taken with a grain of salt as Tom allegedly has dimentia, but could be potentially legally troubling for the the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, Erika, who filed for divorce from Girardi in November 2020 after 20 years marriage especially as she has claimed that she had no idea he was embezzling millions of dollars from his clients over the years.
RHOBH alum Camille Grammer alleged she heard of Erika and Tom’s financial woes at Andrew Cohen’s baby shower in 2019 and ex-RHONY star Bethenny Frankel called Girardi’s financial issues the “worst-kept secret” in Los Angeles, also alleging that he owed her late ex-fiance Dennis Shields, $500,000.
Tom was accused of funneling millions from his former law firm, Girardi Keese which has since filed for bankruptcy into Erika’s lavish lifestyle, including, at one point, finances meant for plane crash victims. It’s been further alleged that the couple’s divorce last year was a “sham” meant to obscure their financial thievery.
Thomas is currently residing at an assisted-living facility after having been disbarred from practicing law in March. He is also under a conservatorship headed by his brother Robert, and a mental evaluation given in February diagnosed Tom with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease and dementia all of which is to say that statement about Erika, on-camera or not, may not hold up to close scrutiny in court, or even be admissible at all, if it comes to that.
