Erika Girardi’s Husband Tom Girardi’s Personal Property Including Wine Collection, Artwork, Sports Memorabilia And 2011 Cadillac Scooter Being Auctioned Off To Pay His Debts!

Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Girardi, is set to have his personal property auctioned off to help pay tens of millions he owes.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, the trustee presiding over Girardi’s bankruptcy is asking the court for permission to sell off a bunch of his property.

The trustee says there is a bunch of furniture, artwork, sports memorabilia, office supplies, wine and a 2011 Cadillac scooter. 

In court documents via Radar Online, the trustee says he hired an appraiser who believes an auction of the items could ring in $60,000.

Photos attached to the motion show Girardi owned a Muhammad Ali signed plaque, a Notre Dame football, and bronze blind justice statues. The full list of items has yet to be released by the trustee.

As previously reported, it was revealed this week that the Pretty Mess author may have to repay settlement funds intended for her estranged husband’s former clients amid allegations that Tom’s firm gave Erika’s companies $20 million over the years. The Ruigomez family, who were featured in Hulu’s The Housewife and the Hustler, can pursue a collections lawsuit against Erika to obtain the $11 million they are owed from Tom.

“The Ruigomez Family, the Girardi Trustee and the GK Trustee shall cooperate with each other with their collection efforts against Erika,” the court documents obtained by Us Weekly read.

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.

In September 2020, Tom told the court that he lost millions of dollars and has “no money” left. 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.

However, in July 2021, a judge ruled that some former clients of Tom can pursue a collections lawsuit against Erika. According to court records obtained by PEOPLE, Tom's former clients, Joseph Ruigomez, Jaime Ruigomez, and Kathleen Ruigomez, will be able to collect the $11 million they are owed by him per a 2020 litigation.
