Star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Girardi, wants the $3 million dollar lawsuit over her husband’s unpaid loan kept private. According to court documents and The Blast, Erika and her husband Thomas Girardi have requested that the lawsuit filed against them be moved from federal court to arbitration. It would be sealed from the public. The lawsuit accuses Erika Girardi AKA Erika Jayne of using some of his money to fund their “lavish lifestyle.”
However; the married couple call the lawsuit a “publicity stunt” and say that the lender knows this dispute belongs in arbitration. The Girardi’s are accusing 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.”
Erika, her husband and his law firm were sued by a lender named Stillwell Madison. They claim that they have loaned his law firm $5,110,440.38 back in 2016. Tom was to make regular payments. However; the lender alleges, “Mr. Girardi re-directed all or part of the proceeds, to which Stillwell was contractually entitled, to himself and his wife in order to sustain their lavish lifestyle and maintain their glamorous public image.” This is due to Erika and Tom appearing on the RHOBH.
This situation sounds very stressful. It’s still an ongoing case. I’m thinking of Erika and Tom during this tough time. It sounds like this mostly has to do with Erika’s husband’s law firm. She makes her own money from the show and her other endeavors. I’m looking forward to next season of the RHOBH! It’ll be fun to see who the castmates are and what they’ve been up to since the drama that happened during season 9. Stay tuned, loves!
