Erika Girardi’s Husband Tom Girardi Responds To Divorce Filing, Does Not Want To Pay Spousal Support!

Erika Girardi’s estranged husband, Tom Girardi, submitted his response to her divorce filing, according to Us Weekly.

In court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on November 25 and obtained by Us Weekly, 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.

The Pretty Mess singer filed for divorce from her 81-year-old husband after 20 years of marriage on Tuesday, November 3. She later confirmed the news via a statement. “After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi,” she said. “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. 

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.
