Erika Girardi Ordered To Turn Over Financial Records Amid Tom Girardi Divorce And Ongoing Legal Drama!

Erika Jayne has been ordered to produce her financial records as part of the ongoing investigation into the assets she shares with her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, according to Us Weekly.

According to a motion filed on Monday, June 28, a judge in the case ordered the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her lawyers to turn over the records no later than Wednesday, July 21, at 5 p.m. The requested documents include bank statements, cashier’s checks, money orders, and any emails or texts related to Jayne’s finances.

Last week, the Pretty Mess singer was accused of refusing to submit “key financial documents” related to the bankruptcy case against the 82-year-old disgraced lawyer. The petitioning creditors filed a motion on Wednesday, June 23, for her accountant, Michael Ullman, to produce the documents along with records of his communication with her divorce lawyer, Larry Ginsburg.

“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,” the motion read, according to Us Weekly. “As each day goes by, Erika has been publicly dissipating community assets by selling her clothes on public websites, flaunting large jewels on social media and on television, and has done nothing to assist in return structured firm payments being made to her instead of the firm by the California lottery, notwithstanding she was contacted through counsel over twelve days ago.”

Erika and Tom made headlines in November 2020 when the Bravo reality star filed for divorce after 20 years of marriage. The following month, the estranged couple was sued for fraud and embezzlement. 

In addition to accusing them of swindling $2 million in settlement funds intended for families of victims of a 2018 plane crash, class action firm Edelson PC claimed in federal court documents that the divorce was “simply a sham attempt to fraudulently protect Tom’s and Erika’s money from those that seek to collect on debts owed by Tom and his law firm.”

Tom faced a second lawsuit later that month, alleging that his company breached a written agreement and conversation with Wells Fargo Vendor Financial Services. The bank sought immediate payment on the $882,715 outstanding bill.

The 82-yar-old was placed under a temporary conservatorship in February when his brother assumed control of his daily activities and personal care. One of Tom’s attorneys claimed in court in December 2020 that he was hospitalized for a “serious illness,” raising questions about his mental competency. Court documents revealed in March that Tom was diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia.
