The law firm of Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of reality star Erika Jayne, is in debt to ‘hundreds of clients’ and ex-workers amid his divorce from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills personality.
A trustee’s probe of the liquidation of the 81-year-old Colorado native’s firm Girardi Keese released Tuesday indicated the company owed a minimum of $26 million to ‘anywhere from dozens to hundreds of clients’ in settlements, according to US Weekly .
Trustee Elissa Miller of the firm SulmeyerKupetz PC said in the report that about $2 million in the unpaid settlements are earmarked to planitiffs in the Lion Air Flight 610 crash.

After Erika Jayne, 49, filed for divorce last November, a class action firm Edelson PC said in December said the divorce was orchestrated to ‘fraudulently protect Tom and Erika’s money’ as they’re ‘on the verge of financial collapse’ in a lawsuit accusing the pair of embezzling settlement funds for the families of the victims of the 2018 crash, in which all 189 people onboard died.
Miller’s report indicated that Girardi’s firm was also on the hook for $11 million to a San Bruno, California family as result of a suit stemming from a gas pipeline explosion in 2010.
Also impacted were more than 8,200 clients who had damages in the 2018 Woolsey fire in Southern California.
The report stated that there was ample ‘evidence that many cases had settled but the clients had not received the funds from the settlement,’ and that new claims for unpaid monies continued to trickle in.
