Tom Girardi Reportedly Reaches $16M Settlement In Lawsuit

The legal trouble for Erika Jayne‘s husband, Tom Girardi may be coming to an end.

The high-profile lawyer finally reached a settlement over his alleged unpaid loan of millions.

According to The Blast, Mr. Girardi has agreed to pay $16 million lent to his firm, Girardi Keese, by a company called Law Finance Corporation. The loan — originally reported at $15 million with interest — was given to Girardi in 2015 to finance the operations of his acclaimed personal injury law firm.

Public court documents allege that the lender sued the RHOBH husband for breach of contract after he failed to make a single repayment on the gigantic sum. Furthermore, the suit alleges that the lawyer even agreed to an earlier repayment plan in August of 2018. However, he failed to pay up once again. The plaintiff also maintains that, while Mr. Girardi made a $10 million payment on the loan on June 7, 2019, he failed to pay the remaining $6 million balance by the negotiated deadline.

While fans haven’t seen Girardi‘s legal trouble play out on screen this season, a certain contingent of RHOBH viewers (read: Lisa Vanderpump stans) have argued that the lawsuit should be fair game for Bravo’s cameras along with similar suits against Mauricio Umansky and PK and Dorit Kemsley. (In a shady tweet earlier this season, LVP seemed to agree with her army of Vanderpuppets.)

Erika has publicly stated that the lawsuit is of no concern to her. Meanwhile, Andy Cohen promised that all the lawsuits will be addressed during the upcoming three-part Season 9 reunion, including the litigation against PK brought up by Camille Grammer as the season drew to a close. We shall see if this actually ends up happening when the reunion episodes air!
