As RadarOnline.com first reported, last year, the Bravo star was sued by the trustee presiding over her estranged husband Tom Giradi’s bankruptcy.

Back in 2020, Girardi and his law firm Girardi Keese were forced into bankruptcy by his various creditors. The once-respected lawyer stands accused of running his firm like a Ponzi scheme. Prosecutors have accused him of embezzling millions meant for his clients.

“Ms. Girardi at all times was and is an entertainer with a 12th grade education. Ms. Girardi was never and is not an attorney, and she trusted that GK, Mr. Girardi, and the outside accountants, given their superior knowledge and expertise, prepared proper, lawful, and legitimate tax returns,” her attorney argued.

Jayne demanded the entire lawsuit be dismissed claiming her husband was “solvent” at the time he paid her bills.

In the recent filing, Jayne and the trustee revealed they have continued settlement discussions but no deal has been reached.

The report, which was first reported by lawyer Ronald Richards, noted, “The parties had previously engaged in settlement discussions over an extended period of time. No settlement was reached, but settlement negotiations have resumed and are ongoing.”

Jayne will be back in court this June where the judge will set a trial date if no settlement has been hashed out by the parties.
