The lawsuits are now affecting his wife, who discussed the legal drama in the last season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In a new motion, the judge presiding over the case has granted a small victory for the alleged embezzlement victims.
According to legal docs obtained by Radar, a new bank account was discovered in Tom’s name. The trustee overseeing his bankruptcy asked the court for access to the bank records.
The newly discovered bank account comes from Western Alliance Bank. The trustee claims Girardi used the account to funnel money into Erika’s EJ Global company, according to Radar.
Specifically, the trustee wants to get her hands on bank statements in order to find answers. She claims this “may shed light on the Debtor’s 17 financial history and potentially uncover assets that belong to the bankruptcy estate.”
Since the judge approved the request, any hidden funds found means the victims could discover more money and will go on to pay off any debts owed.
Now that the trustee has access to Girardi’s accounts at Western Alliance, she believes more answers will be revealed on whether Girardi hid money at the bank.
In total, financial records show Tom’s law firm owes a total of $101 million to various creditors.
On top of that, a burn victim claims he is owed $11 million from Tom. And Erika has refused to pay back a penny that was spent on her as she claims to have done no wrongdoing. She also claims to not have any knowledge or involvement in the misconduct.
The trustee also included Erika in the $25 million lawsuit. Recent court docs revealed Erika will depose Tom, who is now living in a senior living facility. He is currently under a conservatorship and can no longer live independently (he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s).
Erika said repeatedly she knew nothing about Tom’s alleged misconduct. The Bravo star left her husband in November 2020.
According to Erika, they separated after Tom refused to see doctors despite her persistent pleas.
The future chapters of their legal saga will probably be showcased in season 12, which is filming now.
