Erika Jayne admits she’s full of drama amid accusations that she and her estranged husband Thomas Girardi embezzled money in their alleged “sham” divorce. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and her longtime high-powered lawyer husband are being sued by the class-action firm, Edelson PC, according to Page Six.
According to court documents obtained by the outlet, the firm represents
victims of a Boeing plane crash who believe Thomas embezzled settlement funds to support his and his wife’s lavish lifestyle.
They also call Erika Jayne and Thomas Girardi’s divorce a “sham.” Hours prior to the news, the “RHOBH” star showed she didn’t have a care in the world. Taking to her social media, Erika Jayne dropped a smoking hot shot of herself and ironically picked an interesting caption to go along with her post.
In the photo, Erika Jayne was seen standing tall and looking powerful in a luxurious fancy dress fit for a red carpet.

Rocking the elegant number like a total boss, the Bravo personality struck a fierce pose and placed her hand on her hip to flaunt her hourglass frame. Sporting the extravagant one-sleeved gown, Erika Jayne shoved her “XXPEN$IVE” lifestyle in her Instagram followers’ faces.
Her social media shot was posted on Tuesday night. Hours later, the lawsuit against Erika Jayne and Thomas Girardi would be filed and splashed across the Internet. The star’s caption strangely seemed to mirror what was to come.
Looking over her bare shoulder with her bright blue eyes piercing and her blonde hair down, Erika Jayne captioned the no-nonsense shot by seemingly calling herself out. “High drama,” she captioned the snap. Fans immediately went WILD over the look but that was before they were made aware of the lawsuit.
As The Blast reported, the lawsuit claims Tom and his law firm “are on the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds.”
It also alleges that his “need to fund outrageous lifestyles for himself and his soon-to-be ex-wife Erika Jayne” is the reason behind the spontaneous divorce filing months ago. “While Erika publicly filed for divorce this month, on information and belief, that ‘divorce’ is 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 GK,” the court documents state.
Erika Jayne filed for divorce in November after more than 20 years of marriage.
