The plot thickens.
Just when you think all of Tom Girardi’s secrets have been unearthed, another bombshell drops.
A new report reveals that Tom allegedly gave his mistress $300k to buy a beachfront condo.
The disgraced attorney wired hundreds of thousands of dollars to his mistress Judge Tricia Bigelow the same week she made closing on a home in Santa Monica, CA, according to court documents obtained by The Los Angeles Times.
The legal documents reveal that the payment did not come from Tom’s personal bank account. Instead, the money came from a trust account containing the settlement funds from a client of the Girardi Keese law firm.
Said account contained money belonging to cancer victims and “residents of a polluted Inland Empire community.”
Bigelow’s attorney, Alan Jackson, insists she had no idea the money came from client funds and had no reason to suspect it. The attorney adds that the transfer “was NOT marked as coming from a [Girardi Keese] trust account.”
Jackson told The LA Times that Tom “never shared anything with her regarding the source of any gifts” with Bigelow.
This isn’t the first time Bravo fans have heard of Judge Tricia Bigelow. In December 2020, Tom’s estranged wife, Erika Jayne, posted and deleted screenshots of sexual text messages allegedly sent between Bigelow and Tom.
“This is Justice Tricia A. Bigelow. She was f–king my husband Tom Girardi, and he was paying her Saks bill and paying for her plastic surgery,” she claimed on Instagram.
