The investigation into Erika Jayne’s estranged husband, Tom Girardi, has taken a shocking twist.
According to a new report from Radar Online, the lawyers investigating the once famed attorney have uncovered a new bank account in his name.
The trustee investigating Tom’s involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy is now asking the court to have Western Alliance Bank turn over all records connected to Tom’s account.
After months of reviewing Tom’s records, the trustee has uncovered several bank accounts but needs the bank statements to understand the whole picture fully.
These statements “may shed light on the Debtor’s 17 financial history and potentially uncover assets that belong to the bankruptcy estate,” the trustee says in the motion.
The judge signed off on the request, which means Tom’s victims and creditors may soon find out if they will receive more money.
Meanwhile, Erika recently filed a motion to have Tom deposed as part of her defense even though he lives in a senior facility and suffers from dementia.
As we’ve previously reported, a judge recently granted a motion allowing Tom’s victims to pursue legal action against Erika.
According to lawyers, financial records prove that Tom used millions of dollars from his clients’ settlements to fund Erika’s lavish lifestyle.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star insists she knew nothing of her husband’s alleged misdeeds however she was slapped with a $25 million lawsuit as part of Tom’s bankruptcy. The lawsuit demands Erika return to money Tom gave her over the past decade.
She has denied any wrongdoing and has requested the case be tossed.
RHOBH is expected to return to Bravo in Spring 2022.
