Erika Girardi’s Estranged Husband Tom Girardi To Be Kicked Out Of His $16 Million Mansion Amid Health And Legal Issues!

Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi, is set to be kicked out of his $16 million-mansion amid ongoing health and legal issues.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the trustee presiding over Tom’s involuntary bankruptcy case is asking the court for permission to seize the once-respected attorney’s $15 million-dollar, 10,000 sq. ft. Pasadena property. 

Last month, a couple of Girardi’s creditors filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy accusing him of owing millions but refusing to pay. The judge signed off on the case and appointed a trustee, who has taken over control of his finances and will liquidate assets to pay off his debts.

In the recent motion, the trustee wants Tom to be out of the home within 14 days. He says if Tom refuses to turn over the keys to the property within the two-week window he wants him evicted by law enforcement.

Further, the trustee says the 81-year-old is currently living in the home by himself. Erika moved out of the home after filing for divorce. She has since moved into a $1.5 million home near Hollywood.

Tom is reportedly suffering from short term memory loss. His brother Robert Girardi was appointed conservator of the estate until March 31. A judge will then determine whether to make the conservatorship permanent.

In November 2020, Erika filed for divorce from Tom last month after more than two decades of marriage. In the filing, Erika sought spousal support and requested the court terminate its ability to award spousal support to Tom. Tom responded by asking the court to terminate its ability to award spousal support and to request that Erika star pay attorney fees and costs.

She then accused the 81-lawyer of having an affair with a California judge in a now-deleted Instagram post. “This is Justice Tricia A. Bigelow. She was f–king my husband Tom Girardi and he was paying her Saks bill and paying for her plastic surgery,” Erika wrote alongside a series of alleged text messages between her estranged husband and Bigelow.

After Erika deleted the post, Bigelow’s attorney released a statement to the Los Angeles Times on December 22, saying Erika’s “actions in maliciously doxxing the Justice were nothing short of criminal. We are considering our options to protect Justice Bigelow from further harassment.”

During another hearing last month, Keith Griffin, an attorney at Tom’s firm, revealed that the estranged husband of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was secretly hospitalized in 2020. Griffin said his boss was “unavailable in recent weeks due to a serious illness that caused him to be hospitalized for which he sought treatment.”

Tom previously failed to hire a lawyer to represent him in the case. One of his recently hired attorneys, Evan Jenness, told the judge during a December 14 hearing that he wanted Tom to go through a mental examination. “I’m unsure that he understands either the nature or the gravity of the current situation,” Jenness told the judge.

Tom is currently under fire as he is facing multiple lawsuits, including a class-action case filed by Edelson PC against both him and Erika. According to court documents obtained by the publication, the spouses have been accused of embezzling settlement money for families of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610, a 2018 crash that killed 189 people.

A judge has subsequently frozen Tom’s assets and Erika has been asked to stop selling her used clothes through the French company Vestiaire.

“There’s an asset freeze,” the judge told Erika’s lawyer in court on December 22. “His assets are frozen. I think you need to convey that to your client. … If she is selling assets that are property of Tom Girardi, you need to inform her of the danger that puts her in [of being in contempt in court].”

Erika’s attorney, Matt Wasserman, went on to question her role in the case. “Erika was completely unaware of the very serious allegations that were being made against Tom in court. Tom always handled all of the finances and that was how they handled things,” one source said. “She is just reeling from all of this but, make no mistake, Erika is a tough cookie and she isn’t stupid. She will get through this.”
