From wedded bliss to a pretty mess in the blink of an eye.
On November 3, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star announced she was separating from her husband of 21-years. At the time, she also requested spousal support and payment of her legal fees. She also confirmed that she was unaware of Tom’s debts and assets.
In the weeks since Tom and Erika’s split, cheating rumors, on both sides, have plagued the reality TV couple. Erika has been accused of sleeping with a married well-known figure “for years” while Tom allegedly has a longtime girlfriend.
It has also been reported that the couple had an “unconventional marriage” and that their split was amicable.
“Erika and Tom had an unconventional marriage, spending a lot of time apart. Several months,” a source told Us Weekly earlier this month. “They would travel separately. Tom gave Erika a very lavish lifestyle, and she enjoyed it.”
Now a source tells Star Magazine that Erika and Tom had become more like “brother and sister” than a married couple.
And it turns out their divorce could turn very ugly considering the XXPEN$IVE singer didn’t sign a prenup before tying the knot with the well-known attorney in 1999.
Tom is reportedly worth a whopping $30 million.
In 2017, while appearing on Andy Cohen’s Then & Now, Erika revealed that she didn’t have a prenup, and if she did, it wouldn’t matter anyway as her husband will do whatever he wants to do.
“A prenup wouldn’t stand in his way anyway,” Erika confessed. “It’s going to be all Tom’s way, I assure you. He’ll rip that piece of paper to shreds in two seconds.”
As for how Erika is handling the split, a source tells E! News, “She’s sad but trying to keep her spirits up. Most of her castmates have been very supportive, which she appreciates.”
While Erika was recently spotted out and about grabbing dinner with friends at Fia in Santa Monica, that doesn’t mean she’s ready to mingle with any new men – just yet.
“It’s too soon to date; she’s not ready,” the source insists.
I, for one, am very curious to see Erik’s split from Tom play out on RHOBH.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
