ERIKA Jayne allegedly spent $25million from her ex Tom Girardi’s law firm on assistants, her glam squad and credit cards.
The RHOBH star, 50, has been accused of splashing the staggering amount of money by lawyers for the trustee overseeing the Girardi Keese bankruptcy.
The money was transferred from Tom’s law firm into Erika’s company EJ Global LLC, according to a legal demand letter obtained by Page Six.
The letter noted that Erika is the sole owner of the company.
“Mrs. Girardi signed under penalty of perjury the return and personally approved the charges allocated to the breakdown,” the letter reads.
Erika’s attorney, however, told the outlet that “no money whatsoever went to Erika” and that she never helped manage Tom’s firm.
Between 2008 to 2020, Erika allegedly spent $14.2million on an American Express card.
Her company was also believed to have sent $1.5million at the McDonald Selznick Associates Agency, an agency that represents dancers and choreographers.
Another $1.4million went on unknown purchases, according to Page Six.
Erika’s company reportedly paid Kim Kardashian’s former assistant Stephanie Shepherd $102,500 and another agency Opus Beauty $17,000.

Makeup artist Mario Dedivanoic allegedly received $1,000 and publishing company E5 Global Media was paid $8,480 while Los Angeles Times Magazine allegedly got $10,400.
Ronald Richards, a lawyer representing the trustee said Erika owes Girardi Keese more than $28million for her expenditures plus interest.
“It is immaterial whether she knew her husband had improperly diverted funds from clients,” Ronald said in a statement to Page Six.
“What is relevant is that she received complete and total value for the receivable and a formal demand for payment was sent. We are hopeful she backs up her on-air statement last night that the victims come first. “
Erika’s attorney called the trustee’s allegations “malicious” and added: ““Erika never had and does not have personal liability for any debts or obligations of EJ Global LLC, period.”
