Erica Jayne star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and her estranged husband Thomas Girardi who is a lawyer have been slapped with a lawsuit for allegations of embezzlement. Multiple reports say that they’re faking a split to facilitate the alleged embezzlement.
On Wednesday the law firm Edleson PC filed a lawsuit in an Illinois court on behalf of families who lost their members in a fatal crash of Flight 610, Lion Air in October 2018.
According to the lawsuit, instead of the money going to the victims’ families, Girardi and his wife used it to maintain a lavish lifestyle. Some of the funds have allegedly been used to keep his law firm afloat.
According to People, the documents state, “Tom has resorted to embezzling the proceeds of settlements that should have been directed to his clients including as the basis of this complaint, the widows and orphans who lost loved ones in the tragic crash of Lion Air Flight 610 in order to continue funding his and Erika’s lavish Beverly Hills lifestyles.”
The lawsuit also adds Girardi’s law firm in the suit. Documents claim that it is on “the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds.” It also says that the couple’s recent split and divorce proceedings are an alleged attempt to hide assets, in a fraudulent manner, from collectors.
On November 3, 49-year-old Jayne filed divorce proceedings against 81-year-old Girardi, after 21 years of marriage
