Erika Jayne has been officially cleared of all charges in her ex-husband Tom Girardi’s $2million lawsuit

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Erika Jayne has been officially dismissed from the lawsuit against her ex-husband, Tom Girardi. The reality star was previously named in a fraud and embezzlement lawsuit filed in December 2020. Since then, the estranged couple have been dealing with the legal proceedings separately.

In 1998, Erika works as a waitress in a restaurant where Tom, founding partner of the law firm Girardi & Keese, is a regular. Despite their 32-year age difference, they became friends and eventually got married. Their lavish LA lifestyle has been featured regularly on RHOBH, in which Erika admitted to spending $40,000 a month just on hair and makeup. After 21 years of marriage, in November 2020, Erika filed for divorce from Tom. A month later, the two were charged with embezzling $2 million in settlement funds intended for the families of the victims of the fatal Lion Air Flight 610, which Tom, as the victims’ attorney, was supposed to handle. Erika’s divorce and legal troubles were among the main storylines of RHOBH season 11, in which some her co-stars questioned her innocence. Tom, meanwhile, was forced into bankruptcy, lost his license to practice law and was reportedly diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

On January 29, 2022, We Weekly exclusively reported that Erika was fired from the lawsuit involving her ex-husband. According to court documents filed in the Northern District of Illinois, obtained by We, “Pursuant to the stipulation, Plaintiff’s claims against Defendants EJ Global LLC and Erika Girardi are dismissed without prejudice and without costs.” It seems that the Pretty mess the author is clear for now, at least legally.

Recently, Erika made headlines due to another legal situation involving jewelry. The reality star is said to have been pressured into handing over a $750,000 pair of earrings, which were allegedly donated by Tom with misappropriated funds. As she did during season 11 of RHOBH, Erika maintained her innocence in all legal matters. She is currently filming the twelfth season of the hit reality show, which will feature two new cast members.


The past two years have not been a walk in the park for Erika. Amid divorce, legal troubles and the polarizing court of public opinion, Erika’s story continues to unfold. While Erika’s frosty demeanor, racy Instagram posts, and treatment from co-stars might not win her public support, the development of Erika Jayne’s life is surely captivating. Now that she’s been officially fired from Tom’s legal affairs, hopefully the next season of RHOBH will feature “The Pretty Mess” as she navigates her new chapter.
