Erika Girardi The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

Lawsuit Against Tom and Erika Girardi For Fraud and Embezzlement Heats Up; Hear the Voicemails Tom Girardi Allegedly Left For Victims Promising To Pay Them

The fraud and embezzlement lawsuit drama against Erika Girardi and her estranged husband Tom Girardi is heating up in a major way.

As we have previously reported, Tom and Erika are being sued for embezzlement and fraud by class action firm Edelson PC.

The lawsuit alleges that Erika and Tom “embezzled settlement funds intended to help the families of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610, which crashed in 2018 and killed all 189 occupants.”

The suit also claims that Tom has used money intended for his clients to “release personal guarantees, pay down loans, route the money to friends and family, and satisfy other outstanding debts.”

Now, the drama surrounding Tom and Erika’s legal woes is intensifying after former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills friend Dana Wilkey publicly shared some shocking voicemails from Tom.

On Tuesday, Dana shared a very damaging piece of information from the civil lawsuit against the RHOBH couple via Instagram.

“Key page of #rhobh #erikajayne #tomgirardi fraud and embezzlement civil lawsuit. I read the whole thing. Notice the highlights,” Dana captioned the post, which featured highlighted claims from the lawsuit documents.

“Defendant Jayne’s company, Defendant EJ Global, has allegedly received tens of millions in “loans” directly from Defendant GK, which Tom is the whole equity shareholder,” states the legal document.

Dana also highlighted a portion of the document that stated, “Tom embezzled and redirected the funds that were due to the Lion Air clients to his family members, friends, and his and GK’s lenders and other creditors.”

Meanwhile, Dana then shared several voicemails that Tom allegedly left for the family members of the Lion Air plane crashing victims, promising to get them the money they are owed.

The voicemails came from the footnote of the lawsuit that was filed against Tom and Erika on December 2.

According to Dana, “the plaintiff attorney had quoted in the litigation voicemails that Tom had left basically making it sound like he was going to pay the victims but then never did.”

She continued, “They are using it to show a pattern of fraud for their case. I guess for the judge, they footnoted the actual voicemails themselves, and they put them on their website.”

“Hey Tom Girardi, we screwed here up a little bit. We had three different air crashes, and they got a little screwed up. I’ll have everything worked out by Thursday. I’m so sorry. This has never happened before.  Everything will be smoked over on Thursday. Thank you,” Tom can be overheard saying in one of the voicemails.

In the second voicemail, Tom says, “don’t be mean to me, be nice to me” and that “it was because of me we got this by the way.”

He also says that he’s being admitted into the hospital for some testing. He adds that the person shouldn’t worry because they are “friends” and that “things are going to work out good.”

Stay tuned for more on this developing story!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
