Not sweating the small stuff!
You’d think a $15M lawsuit would leave anyone quaking in their Louboutins but not Erika Girardi.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star made it clear that she’s unfazed by her husband Tom Girardi being slapped with a $15M lawsuit.
Erika addressed the lawsuit at the RHOBH season 9 premiere party.
“Listen, we’re in the lawsuit business, baby. We sue and get sued,” Erika explained to Us Weekly. “So what? So what? It’s part of the job.”
Back in January Tom was hit with a $15M lawsuit by Law Finance Group, who claims that they gave Girardi a $15M loan “to fund the operations of his firm.”
The lawsuit claims that instead, Tom used the money to fund his lavish lifestyle and to keep his law firm afloat.
In August 2018, Law Finance Group and Girardi agreed to a repayment plan but the lender says Girardi breached that agreement.
The deal involved Girardi making monthly payments, in addition to a “$1 million payment by the end of October” and a “$5 million by January 1.”
As for Tom, he’s denying all the claims made by Law Finance Group. In a statement to The Blast, Girardi says: “The truth of the matter is this. I have not taken one penny from the law firm in the past three years. I have devoted everything to assist in the cases that we have here. Further, the money that was borrowed, we agreed to repay in approximately two weeks before the lawsuit. It is slanderous that the money was for my ‘lifestyle’ … every penny went for costs in cases that the firm is handling.”
