Erika Jayne Dragged Into Husband's $6 Million Lawsuit
The Beverly Hills legal drama continues.
Although cameras are rolling for season ten of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we all know Erika Jayne won’t be discussing her life or this dramatic lawsuit on the show.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Erika’s husband Tom Girardi is being sued by the Law Finance Group for failing to repay a $16 million dollar loan, which they believed was used to maintain the couple’s lavish lifestyle. The lawyer only paid back $10 million by the deadline and the judge found he breached the deal and is forcing him to pay the other $6 million which is owed.
In court documents Tom denied using the money for his lifestyle and stated it went directly to the law firm to assist with their cases:
“The truth of the matter is this. I have not taken one penny from the law firm in the past three years. I have devoted everything to assist in the cases that we have here. Further, the money that was borrowed, we agreed to repay in approximately two weeks before the lawsuit. It is slanderous that the money was for my ‘lifestyle’ … every penny went for costs in cases that the firm is handling.”
According to The Blast, even after the judge ruled for Tom to pay back the million dollar debt, the company wants their money and are demanding for Erika Jayne to appear in court with her financial records including bank statements and sources of income, as they believe she has the money which is owed to them. They also want to grill her about real estate owned by Tom and the whereabouts of her husband’s personal property.
It’s not everyday you have to prove your income in your husband’s lawsuit, however, Erika definitely won’t talk about it while on camera.
The company is demanding for Erika to show up to court on November 6 (which is in the middle of the Beverly Hills shooting schedule), however, the judge is yet to rule.
Along with Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards husbands also being sued for millions of dollars, Erika and Tom also have another seperate $3 million lawsuit over another unpaid loan and the plaintiffs in that case also believe he used to money to fund his personal life.
How can you have two seperate million dollar lawsuits for unpaid loans which were (allegedly) to keep their lifestyle afloat and not have your life turned upside down or be mildly stressed over it?
