‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star, Erika Jayne has reportedly refused to hand over financial documents as the courts attempt to examine her estranged husband, ex-lawyer, Tom Girardi’s assets.
Girardi has been accused of embezzling funds from several of his previous clients. He was then sued by his law firm’s business partners, resulting in Girardi declaring bankruptcy.
Petitioning creditors in the bankruptcy case have filed a motion that, in part, accuses Erika of refusing to turn over bank statements and other key financial documents to trustees who are investigating the Girardis’ assets.
‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’: Erika Jayne Refuses to Turn Over Bank Records
Girardi declared bankruptcy only one one month after the 49 year old reality star filed for divorce from her 82 year old husband. However, if Erika thought the divorce would help her hang onto her fortune, its looking like she is very, very wrong.
It has been revealed that Girardi’s now defunct law firm transferred $20 million into Erika’s various business ventures, including one business that was created after news of the embezzlement scandal came to light.
The “key financial documents” that Erika is not willing to part with include bank statements, receipts, pay stubs, and all communications with Erika’s divorce attorney.
The motion reads, “Erika has refused to provide access to her management company, her CPA which also houses her management company, any books and records of EJ Global or any of her affiliated companies.”
It also mentions that Erika, even though she was contacted almost two weeks ago , is not assisting in the case and, instead, is “selling her clothes on public websites and flaunting large jewels on social media and on television.”
The motion goes on to accuse Erika of using her companies, including the newly created Pretty Mess Inc, to hide her assets while “continuing to show off public displays of wealth.”
Obviously they didn’t see the duress she was under when having to switch out her Lamborghini for just a Range Rover…how does she even cope?
Watch Erika and the other housewives show off their public displays of wealth when RHOBH airs, Wednesdays on Bravo at 9pm ET.
