REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne’s lawyer ex Tom Girardi has been “DISBARRED.”
The decision comes after the former couple was accused of “stealing $25million from his suffering clients.”
Emily shared the news on Twitter, writing: “It’s official. A Federal Judge disbarred Tom Girardi yesterday. Girardi was already suspended from the practice to practice and the State Bar was pushing to Disbar him, he did not contest the disbarment.”
She added in a followup tweet: “The State Bar Disbarment is still pending. This is the Federal Court Disbarment. Girardi has not responded to either action yet.”
Back in June, Tom’s younger brother Robert Girardi was appointed as the former lawyer’s conservator.
Erika’s ex was designated a conservator due to his dementia diagnosis.
According to PEOPLE, Tom originally opposed the conservatorship “all together” and shared his plan to have it “dissolved” in court.
However, the lawyer never contested the decision.
ERIKA’S LEGAL DRAMA
The RHOBH star filed for divorce from Tom in November after 21 years of marriage.
Shortly after their split was confirmed, the former couple began to be hit with a number of lawsuits.
Despite claiming she wasn’t aware of Tom’s wrongdoings, the Bravo star has found herself at the center of the legal drama.
Erika, 50, was previously accused of “hiding her bank statements,” as a trustee’s special litigation counsel confirmed that Tom’s law firm transferred an eye-opening $20 million to the Bravo star’s many businesses.
The RHOBH star even appeared to create one of the businesses after news broke of the embezzlement scandal.
UNFOLDING ON CAMERA
Erika and Tom’s legal drama has been a hot topic during the recent season of the Bravo show, while her co-stars recently confronted her about the scathing claims.
During the episode, Sutton Stracke, 49, said: “I think Erika is lying to us.”
She then asked Erika: “You should have access to some things before it hits the press?”
Erika appeared annoyed and fired back: “I have no access to lawsuits about Tom.”
Sutton, who seemed to not believe her, asked: “Where I have a problem is… why did $20 million go into your LLC? How did you not see that?”
An angry Erika responded: “No I did not know that. I did not know anything, I was kept away from the books, even my own LLC.
“I found out from the LA Times article that we had $50-$80 million in cash, that’s all gone.”
Sutton asked: “Have you had any discussions with attorneys about the story and how to navigate through it?”
Erika replied: “No.”
The drama has also followed Erika off camera, as she recently demanded trolls to stop threatening her life.
The 50-year-old recently shared a post from the All About The Truth Instagram account, which read: “RHOBH’s Erika Jayne spent $25M from estranged husband’s law firm on her glam squad, PR firms, a dance agency and 14M in Amex purchases.”
A follower replied: “@theprettymess needs to be executed.”
Erika responded to the comment: “Trying to kill me now? Stop threatening my life.”
In another post, a troll wrote: “Feeling scared yet? The further the season gets the more you should be worried about being in public….. talk about a marked woman.”
The RHOBH star shared the post writing: “More threats.”
