ERIKA Jayne looked downcast as she headed to the gym this week after being hit with another lawsuit.
The 50-year-old reality star, clad in leggings and a zip-up jacket looked far removed from her glamorous persona on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
With her blonde locks pulled up in a bun, the TV star looked somber as she went to workout in West Hollywood on Wednesday.
Erika ditched her designer clothes and opted for a Nike jacket over leggings and black sneakers.
She did however, carry a yellow Chanel clutch purse.
Last week, Erika was slammed with a $25million lawsuit that’s part of estranged husband Tom Girardi’s bankruptcy case.
The XXPEN$IVE songstress was sued for allegedly knowing that her 82-year-old estranged husband’s law firm was paying for her expenses for the past 12 years.
According to legal documents, first obtained by Page Six, the trustee in the bankruptcy case wants Erika to pay the firm back.
The lawsuit comes after Erika was accused of using her company, EJ Global, to spend over $25 million from the firm.
She was alleged to have used the money to pay for her American Express bill, glam team and other expenses.
The lawsuit claimed: “She attempts to create a distinction between handing her money directly versus paying all of her bills directly.
“The distinction, like her prior motion for reconsideration is meritless. Any payments made for her benefit are her responsibility.”
The trustee said Erika’s claims she wasn’t aware of Tom wrongdoings is not an excuse, arguing “it would be a miscarriage of justice if [she] was allowed to simply walk completely free of owing over $25,000,000 to the Estate.”
‘WELL AWARE OF THE MONEY’
“Erika signed all of her tax returns, numerous credit card slips, and was well aware of the money she spent on the Debtor’s credit cards and the Debtor’s payment of her personal expenses,” the trustee alleged.
“Her feigned willful blindness and ostrich approach to these expenditures will do absolutely nothing to limit her liability.”
The trustee also stated that “the glam cannot be supported by a sham.”
Tom Girardi’s law firm is now estimated to be over $101 million in debt.
Last month, Tom was disbarred, losing his right to practice law after he was declared bankrupt, owing millions in liabilities and his belongings are being auctioned in an attempt to raise funds.
He is facing numerous lawsuits in unpaid settlements tied to cases he won for clients including victims of horrific accidents and the families of the Lion air disaster victims.
Jayne and Girardi filed for divorce in November 2020 after 20 years of marriage.
Soon after the pair divorced, they were both accused of embezzlement of funds meant for Lion Air Flight 610 victims through their “sham” divorce.
It has been reported that the firm’s records were so poorly kept and outdated that the “actual total may be different than the listed total.”
