“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne wants $3 million-dollar lawsuit over her husband’s unpaid loan out of public eye.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Erika and her husband Thomas Girardi have requested that the lawsuit filed against them be moved from federal court to arbitration (where it would be sealed from the public).
The reality stars were sued by a lender who claims Girardi defaulted on a loan. The lawsuit accused him of using some of the money to fund his and Erika’s lavish lifestyle.
The Girardis call the lawsuit nothing more than a “publicity stunt” and claim the lender knows this dispute belongs in arbitration.
They also accuse the lender of having, “filed in federal court using such highly charged language as “lavish lifestyle” and “glamorous public image” with the goal to try to use the Court system as a publicity campaign."
A judge has yet to rule.
