Erika Jayne sued for $ 25 million in bankruptcy case
Erika Jayne is sued for $ 25 million by the trustee overseeing the bankruptcy case involving her ex-husband Tom girardiGirardi Keese law firm.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 50, was involved in the lawsuit because she knew the company was paying its expenses for at least 12 years, according to court documents obtained by Us weekly. As a result, the trustee asked the court to order Erika to reimburse the company for the $ 25 million she allegedly spent, plus interest.
“It would be a miscarriage of justice if [she] was allowed to simply walk without owing more than $ 25,000,000 to the estate, ”the record says.
The lawsuit further argued that Erika should be held personally responsible for the funds, although the money went to her company, EJ Global LLC. “She tries to distinguish between handing over her money directly and paying all of her bills directly,” the newspapers read. “The distinction, like his earlier request for reconsideration, is without merit. Any payment made to him is his responsibility.
The trustee claimed that “glam cannot be backed by a sham”, referring to the money she would have spent on her glam team as well as on public relations, assistants and her credit card bill.
Ronald richards, the trustee’s lawyer, said We in a Friday August 27 statement that the lawsuit was filed “to offer a moment of return to Jesus” for Erika.
“The law firm paid more than $ 25 million in expenses that were approved and generated by one person, Erika Girardi,” the statement continued. “We hope that Ms. Girardi comes down from the mountain of a place of obscene privilege and wealth and reimburses some of these expenses so that the former clients and creditors of this law firm can mitigate the horrific and unjust losses perpetrated by her husband.” and others. “
Girardi Keese is in debt of $ 101 million, according to court documents obtained by We earlier this week. “This will not compensate the estate for the full amount, but efforts to do the right thing would go a long way to bolster its public claim that victims should come first,” Richards added. Ms. Girardi enjoys a large salary for her talents as well as access to large sums of money from anonymous sources. We hope she finds a better way to resolve this matter without further shirking her obligations. towards this estate instead of constantly depleting the estate’s resources with unfounded legal positions and threats.No further investigation is needed to prove the money in one direction: to Erika Girardi.
Erika’s lawyer, however, said We in a Friday statement that the lawsuit “is another example of the administrator and his lawyer jumping to conclusions without a full investigation, and intimidating and blaming Erika for actions taken by Girardi Keese for which Erika has no legal responsibility “.
The lawyer claimed that “just because Erika owned 100% of the interest in EJ Global LLC does not mean that she is responsible for its debts” and alleged that Girardi Keese “was managing the finances of EJ Global LLC. “.
Erika filed for divorce from Tom, 82, in November 2020 after 20 years of marriage. She has since claimed that she was not aware of his alleged abuse of her clients and their money. The court case is ongoing.
