Erika Girardi’s Estranged Husband Tom Girardi Slapped With Another Lawsuit Amid Divorce Drama!

Erika Girardi’s estranged husband, Tom Girardi, is facing another lawsuit amid the couple’s divorce.

Tom and his law firm, Girardi Keese, are being sued by Wells Fargo Vendor Financial Services, according to court documents obtained by Us Weekly on Thursday, December 10.

The lawsuit, which was filed earlier this month with the Los Angeles Superior Court, accused Tom’s company of breaching a written agreement and conversation with the bank.

Erika’s estranged husband allegedly entered into five different lease agreements with Wells Fargo, in which the firm agreed to finance the lease of certain office equipment. The bank claimed that Tom’s company stopped making the monthly payments for July and August, which breached their aforementioned agreement. The unpaid bills allegedly include rental charges, maintenance, taxes, overages, late fees, and a purchase option.

Wells Fargo is seeking immediate payment on the outstanding bill of $882,715. The company is also charging interest at 10 percent per annum from the date of default.

The lawsuit also claimed that Tom’s firm is storing the rented office supplies at his Los Angeles and San Bernardino, California, properties. The bank, therefore, wants to seize the two properties based on the lease terms they previously outlined and the alleged default.

The lawsuit came one month after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star filed for divorce from Tom after 21 years of marriage. “After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi,” Erika said in a statement. “This is not a step taken lightly or easily. I have great love and respect for Tom and for our years and the lives we built together. It is my absolute wish to proceed through this process with respect and with the privacy that both Tom and I deserved I request others give us that privacy as well.” 

Erika cited irreconcilable differences and is seeking spousal support from Tom. She also wants the court to determine their shared property and confirm that any gifts and inheritances are still hers. 

On November 25, Tom requested to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. He also asked that she pay his attorney’s fees.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, December 2, Edelson PC sued the pair for fraud and embezzlement. In court documents obtained by Us Weekly, the class action firm alleged that the estranged couple “are on the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds” in addition to calling their separation “a sham attempt to fraudulently protect” their money from debt collectors.
