Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne's former mansion had its asking price slashed by $1.5 million as her estranged husband Thomas Girardi's creditors are on the hunt for their money.
The 4-bedroom, 9-bathroom, 10,277 sq. ft. mansion sits on over 2 acres of land and is located in a private community. Jayne often filmed inside the home in the past seasons of RHOBH.
The home is being sold off by the trustee presiding over Girardi's involuntary bankruptcy. The once-respected lawyer was forced into Chapter 7 after his creditors accused him of refusing to pay tens of millions in debt he owed to various lenders, business partners and former clients.
Jayne didn't stick around long after the financial problems started to pile up. The reality star decided to file for divorce from Girardi and demanded he pay her spousal support.
Girardi is objecting to her request he pays her monthly support. The divorce itself has been called a "sham" but companies owed money from the former lawyer.
Many people involved believe Girardi had been transferring millions of dollars to Jayne when he knew he was unable to pay his debts. His former clients accuse him of diverting money they won in a settlement to help pay the bills associated with his lavish lifestyle.
Jayne is even accused of helping her husband embezzle the money. In court documents, one lender says Jayne received over $20 million from Girardi and spent it on expensive jewelry and glam.
The trustee recently hired a lawyer named Ronald Richards to investigate Jayne. He had requested she return items he believes are property of the estate but she refused to comply. She claims all property in her possession were "gifts" from Girardi and she is not required by the law to return them. A judge has yet to rule.
