REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne’s ex-attorney, Tom Girardi, has been “GOT OUT.”
The move comes after the former couple were accused of “stealing $ 25 million from their ailing clients.”
Emily shared the news on Twitter, writing: “It’s official. A federal judge struck off Tom Girardi yesterday. Girardi was already suspended from practice to practice and the state bar was pushing to strike him off, he did not challenge the deregistration.”
She added in a follow-up Tweeter: “The removal from the state bar is still pending. This is the removal from the Federal Court. Girardi has yet to respond to any of these actions.”
In June, Tom’s younger brother, Robert Girardi, was appointed curator of the former lawyer.
Erika’s ex was named Conservative due to his diagnosis of dementia.
According to PEOPLETom initially opposed the “all together” guardianship and shared his plan to “dissolve” it in court.
However, the lawyer never challenged the decision.
ERIKA’S LEGAL DRAMA
The RHOBH star filed for divorce from Tom in November after 21 years of marriage.
Shortly after their separation was confirmed, the former couple began to face multiple lawsuits.
Although she claimed she was unaware of Tom’s misdeeds, the Bravo star found herself at the center of the legal drama.
Erika, 50, had previously been accused of “hiding her bank statements”, as a special litigation counsel for a trustee confirmed that Tom’s law firm had transferred a revealing $ 20 million to the numerous Bravo star companies.
The RHOBH star even appeared to start one of the companies after the embezzlement scandal was announced.
Erika and Tom’s legal drama has been a hot topic during the Bravo show’s final season, while her co-stars recently confronted her with scathing allegations.
During the episode, Sutton Stracke, 49, said: “I think Erika is lying to us.”
She then asked Erika, “You should have access to certain things before they get published?” ”
Erika looked annoyed and hit back, “I don’t have access to the lawsuits against Tom.”
Sutton, who seemed to disbelieve her, asked, “Where I have a problem is … why did $ 20 million go into your LLC?” How didn’t you see that? “
An angry Erika replied, “No, I didn’t know. I didn’t know anything, I was kept off the books, even from my own LLC.
“I found out in the LA Times article that we had between $ 50 million and $ 80 million in cash, it’s all gone.”
Sutton asked, “Have you had any discussions with lawyers about the story and how to navigate it?”
Erika replied: “No.”
The drama also followed Erika off camera, as she recently asked the trolls to stop threatening her life.
The 50-year-old recently shared a post from the All About The Truth Instagram account, which read: “RHOBH’s Erika Jayne spent $ 25 million from her ex-husband’s law firm on her glam team, law firms public relations, a dance agency and 14 million Amex purchases. “
One subscriber replied: “@theprettymess must be executed.”
Erika responded to the comment: “Try to kill me now? Stop threatening my life.”
In another post, a troll wrote: “Are you still scared? The more the season goes on, the more you should worry about being in public ….. talking about a scarred woman.”
The RHOBH star shared the post, writing: “No more threats.”
