Erika Jayne Hints She’s A ‘Scapegoat’ Amid Her and Estranged Husband Tom Girardi’s Legal and Financial Issues

Scapegoat?

Erika Jayne hints that she’s the victim of her estranged husband Tom Giardi’s legal and financial issues.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared a drawing from DrunkDrawn on Instagram.

Erika can be seen in the drawing nailed to the cross with flames coming up from the ground. Erika can also be seen screaming “Balenciaga” while wearing earrings that read: “Orphans [and] Widows.”

The caption on the drawing said, “This season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills…The Crucifixion of Erika Jayne!”

Erika added her own caption that read: “Scapegoat.”

In recent months, Erika and Tom have been sued for fraud and embezzlement. The former couple is accused of stealing settlement money from the families of victims of the 2018 Lion Air 610 plane crash.

Many have accused Tom and Erika of faking their divorce to “fraudulently protect” their money.

Erika’s attorneys have already insisted that she has played no role in Tom’s legal issues. Publicly, Erika has attempted to portray herself as a victim of her estranged husband’s lies, deception, and unfaithfulness.

Attorney Ronald Richards recently revealed that criminal charges wouldn’t be pressed against Erika until there’s “clear evidence of knowledge” that she knew of the fraud. He added, “She may claim she didn’t know Tom was broke or borrowing a lot of money, but this negates any innocent housewife defense.”

Meanwhile, sources say that Erika plans to reveal “everything” about her divorce during season 11 of RHOBH.

“The season is all about her, but she didn’t back away from anything,” a source told HollywoodLife. “She wanted people to see her side of the story, and when the time comes, she will do a full interview on this matter.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
