Jayne has fought Richards coming on every step of the way accusing him of harassing her online. Richards has denied the claims saying she’s only upset because he’s getting close to the truth.

In the past couple of weeks, he had the judge sign off on him being allowed to depose Jayne’s landlord, divorce lawyer, and business manager. Richards’ investigation is part of Jayne’s husband's bankruptcy.

One federal lawsuit says he stole the money from orphans and widows with the help of Jayne. Jayne has consistently denied knowing a thing about her husband’s finances and denied she embezzled a dime.

Recently, Richards spoke about to Us Weekly, saying, “There’s a lot of inconsistent statements and admissions made by the non-scripted actors that we’re putting together to use in court.”

Over the weekend, he decided to share a video he believes is evidence Jayne’s story has changed over time. In the clip from a reunion show, Andy Cohen reads a fan criticizing Jayne for talking about other ladies but ignoring a lawsuit filed against her husband for $15 million.

She told the Bravo host, “How about this. Resolved and they apologized.”

Her statement alludes to her knowing about the case, being aware of the outcome, and overall being in the loop about Girardi’s legal matters. Jayne has yet to respond.

Richards captioned the post, “This is an example of prior footage rebutting claim of complete lack of knowledge.” As Radar previously reported, earlier this year, Girardi’s creditors forced him into Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

The court put a trustee in place to take over control of the once-respected lawyer’s finances. In his role, the trustee has started selling off Girardi’s assets and hunting down money owed to him.

Recently, the trustee sued Jayne for the return of $25 million she reportedly received from Girardi during their marriage. Last year, in the middle of Girardi’s world falling apart, Jayne decided to leave their $9 million Pasadena mansion and file for divorce. It was later learned that the former lawyer is also dealing with dementia and Alzheimer's.
