The lawyer investigated Erika Jayne for allegedly embezzling millions with her husband Thomas Girardi has questions on how she was able to fly private.

Over the weekend, lawyer Ronald Richards reported a link of a Daily Mail article that featured photos of the 49-year-old boarding a private jet. Paparazzi snapped the photos earlier this month while she was leaving Los Angeles.

Richards, who was appointed to lead the investigation into Jayne, wrote on Twitter, "Pursuant to California Rule 3.6(b)(5), we are requesting assistance in obtaining evidence and information necessary to determine the source of @erikajayne 's legal fees and expenses, as well as the tail number for this plane in this published article."

Jayne was not impressed with the tweet. She wrote, "No merit, No investigation, No proof, Just more harassment …"

As Radar previously reported, Jayne has been dragged into her once-respected lawyer's bankruptcy.

The two were married for 21 years but the reality star booked it as her husband's life was crumbling. She left him in their $13 million mansion and rented a $1.5 million pad in Hollywood. She is also demanding Girardi pay her spousal support, which he objected to.

In the past couple of years, Girardi's former clients started coming forward accusing him of failing to pay them millions owed on settlements he won them in their legal matters. In one federal lawsuit, Jayne was named as a defendant in a case brought by Girardi's former clients, who were widows and orphans who lost loved ones in a plane crash.

The families believe Girardi diverted their money to Jayne to help fund her lavish lifestyle. She has yet to respond to the lawsuit but publicly denies knowing about her husband's financial decision.

Earlier this year, Girardi's creditors forced him into Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The court appointed a trustee to take over control of his finances. Separately, the former lawyer's family had a judge sign off on putting Girardi in a conservatorship.

Recently, the trustee sued Jayne demanding she return $25 million and luxury items gifted to her by Girardi. He believes the money was transferred to the reality star to hide assets from his creditors.
