Erika Jayne has found herself in yet another financial predicament.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star is now facing a gigantic amount of tax debt. Not only has her financial forecast become deeper, but the entertainer is also now facing the prospect of being unable to pay back the debt.
Jayne’s road has been quite rocky since she divorced her husband of two decades, Tom Girardi, two years ago. Since Jayne filed for divorce, she has faced an enormous amount of scrutiny amid her ailing ex-husband’s massive legal woes, including being the target of various lawsuits.
Inside Jayne’s Newfound Tax Troubles
Jayne revealed a surprising update concerning her finances in a new court document filed yesterday.
In the document, Jayne wrote, as per Us Weekly, “I am in the midst of trying to figure out the basis of this tax bill with the assistance of my business manager, who is also an accountant. I do not have the ability to pay the [California Franchise Tax Board] tax bill.”
How much is this tax bill worth?
Jayne is said to owe $2,226, 985.77 in taxes.
The outlet also reported Jayne’s business manager had received the notice a month ago.

Jayne’s life as we’re seeing on-screen via episodes of ‘RHOBH’ seems to be just as chaotic as her seemingly never-ending list of legal issues.
In last night’s episode, Garcelle Beauvais, who has been at odds with Jayne for while, had had enough of Jayne during a dinner scene. Beauvais suddenly snapped at her ex-friend, “Erika, you’re bugging the sh*t out of me.” (via What To Watch)
Despite her ability to remain unwavering against her fellow castmates’ feelings, Jayne has been vulnerable at times with the press concerning certain moments of ‘RHOBH’s twelfth season she would have rather not have aired and stayed on the cutting room floor.
The Blast recently covered Jayne’s appearance on ex-‘RHOBH’ housewife Teddi Mellencamp’s podcast, where she revealed the exact moment she wished could have been removed in editing.
Jayne had been in the middle of a heavy argument with her castmates while the housewives had been on a Colorado getaway.
The ladies of Beverly Hills have already had their fair share of difficult moments to relive while watching the current season. Lisa Rinna, who lost her mother Lois last year, recently shared the difficulty she had experienced while reliving her grief.
“Grief is a tricky little devil,” she had written in a post on social media ahead of the episode’s airing.
As for Jayne’s regretful on-screen fight, she said, “I haven’t seen it. I experienced it, but what I experienced was bad, so I can only imagine how it looks.”
The moment also caused a rift between Jayne and Kyle Richards.
“It caused a problem between Kyle and myself,” Jayne began, careful to avoid spoilers, “I am regretful. Obviously we’ve been friends for eight years now, so my relationship with her is important.”
It remains to be seen whether Jayne’s newfound tax-related troubles will be eventually covered on camera.
