Erika Jayne Claps Back About $1.2 Million Lawsuit

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 is promising big things, and an equally gigantic cast. The latest season will include Diana Jenkins as a new Housewife and Sheree Zampino as a friend-of. We can also expect to see the familiar faces of Kyle RichardsLisa RinnaKathy Hilton, and of course, Erika Jayne. No matter how large they decide to make the cast of this franchise, it’s hard to imagine anyone besides Erika being the dramatic-focal.

Erika has been enmeshed in a litigation nightmare since her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, has been accused of swindling money from widows and orphans of a Lion Air crash. Recently, Erika and her company, EJ Global, LLC were named in a $2.1 million complaint associated with the Lion Air lawsuit.

The filed documents are claiming Erika “aided and abetted” Tom and his law firm in their alleged financial misdeeds. The suit comes just days after it was announced that EJ Global was suspended amid bankruptcy proceedings. As a result, Erika’s company cannot sell or transfer property. She is also unable to use EJ Global for business-related matters until the alleged issues are resolved. Poor lamb.

Erika’s lawyer is firing back, though, denying any wrong doing on her part and placing the blame fully on Tom. Erika’s lawyer, Evan Borges, told E! News, “The complaint is another misguided effort to blame Erika for the conduct of others in which she had no part.”

EJ’s lawyer leaned into the victim narrative adding, “Erika has no law degree and never worked at or managed her former husband’s law firm. Whatever Mr. Girardi or others at his law firm did or said to the plaintiffs in this case, Erika had no knowledge or role in any of it.” He added that the “focus” of this case should be on Tom, and “anyone else who enabled what he did.” Okay but what about focusing on the people who blatantly benefitted from what he did and now show 0% remorse or humility? Asking for a couple million interested viewers.

Evan Borges is resolute, though, and claims,”Piling on Erika may generate publicity, but it’s without any basis in law or fact.” Considering she is literally surviving on publicity right now, I don’t see the issue.
