More money, more problems is how the saying goes, but it’s more like no money, more problems when it comes to Erika Jayne.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s ongoing legal battles are sucking her dry and making it hard for the reality TV star to make ends meet.
“She’s fallen behind on rent and is terrified that she’ll end up on the street before this whole ordeal is over,” a source tells Life & Style.
Erika is currently being sued for $2.1 million by attorney Manuel H. Miller and Kathleen Bajgrowicz for “aiding and abetting” her estranged husband Tom Girardi. The former famed attorney allegedly embezzled millions from his clients.
In the lawsuit, Erika is accused of knowing that Tom was using his clients’ settlement money to fund their lavish lifestyle, as documented on RHOBH. Erika also allegedly encouraged Tom’s crimes to give her the lifestyle she desired, including private plans, $40k a month glam squads, designer clothes, and high-end jewelry.
The reality TV star has denied any wrongdoing and is doing everything she can to clear her name. This includes spending tons of money on attorneys to fight her various legal woes.
“She’s having to spend every penny she has to defend herself,” the source notes.
RHOBH is expected to return to Bravo in Spring 2022.
