Erika Girardi has demanded to return the $750,000 earrings she received from ex-husband Tom Girardi

Erika Girardi of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ may have to return her $750,000 earrings to Tom Girardi.

Amid ongoing divorce proceedings, Erika Girardi is dragged into Tom Girardi’s pending case as she was asked to hand over a set of diamond earrings worth $750,000 as the bankruptcy trustee continues to investigate her ex-husband. The trustee claims Tom Girardi purchased said earrings in 2007 using money from a client’s trust account with his company, Girardi Keese.

The purchase of said jewelry was written off as an expense to the customer’s account. According to newly acquired court documents obtained by People, which were filed on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, Tom allegedly used his client’s funds to purchase the jewelry he gifted Erika. The trustee is now asking for the expensive earrings to be returned and sold to pay off Tom’s creditors.

The lawyer of the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills The star said Erika was unaware of the claims and was innocently gifted with stunning $750,000 earrings by her former husband Tom. Erika filed for divorce from Tom in November 2020 after about 20 years together. The couple’s split came as a surprise to everyone but the events following their split have led everyone to believe that Erika Jayne’s life is far from perfect, which she described on TV . However, after more than a year of separation from her husband, she was still questioned about her ex, alleged suspicious activities involving his business.

Erika’s attorney, Evan C. Borges, released a statement to People, saying they are indeed troubled by the number of people jumping to conclusions against his client, Erika. The lawyer claims that she is innocent and that others are simply trying to blame her for their own actions. He added that if the law ever matters, the trustee’s motion is definitely off limits. The trustee’s claims are based on incomplete hearsay which was used in evidence and filed with the motion. Borges believes the trustee has baseless claims about the gift Erika received 15 years ago from her former husband who was an extraordinarily wealthy husband at the time.

It’s been reported that the reality star is now frustrated at yet again being falsely accused of something she didn’t do. She wore said jewelry on the show, so it’s not like no one knew about her existence. Erika’s legal team has already filed a response to the trustee’s claims last Wednesday, January 26, 2022.
