According to new reports, a high-profile Chicago law firm is accusing the RHOBH star and her husband in a federal lawsuit Wednesday of a scheme to embezzle money from settlements related to the crash of Lion Air Flight 610.
It alleges that Thomas Girardi embezzled the money to keep up the couple’s celebrity status and to “project a public image of obscene wealth at all times, and at whatever the cost.”

“Tom has resorted to embezzling the proceeds of settlements that should have been directed to his clients — including, as the basis for 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,” documents in the case state.
What’s more, the lawsuit said Boeing reached individual settlements with clients represented by both Girardi Keese and Edelson PC. However, it goes on to say that the settlement funds were used by Tom and Erika for their personal use.
“At the heart of this deception is Defendant Girardi and his need to fund outrageous lifestyles for himself and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Erika Jayne,” it says, claiming that protecting their finances is the reason for their recent divorce, and that this incident is not “the first attempt by Tom to hide and divert assets.”
So far Erika Jayne has not made any comments about the matter.
