Earlier year, Girardi — a once-respected LA attorney ­— and his law firm were forced into Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Financial records show he ran his firm like a Ponzi scheme. Many of his former clients claim to have been screwed out of millions. His firm owes $101 million to various creditors.

As part of the investigation, the trustee has been reviewing bank statements and financial records. They recently learned that Girardi purchased Jayne $750k diamond earrings with funds from his law firm’s client trust account. The earrings are now worth around $1.4 million

The docs say Girardi purchased the earrings from M&M Jewelers. He allegedly concealed the theft from the client trust by “describing the purpose of the check” as a “cost” item as part of one of his lawsuits.

“Erika has no legal or equitable right to the Diamond Earrings and the same are legally and equitably valuable assets of the GK Bankruptcy Estate that the Trustee can and should sell,” the docs state.

The trustee says they demanded the return of the earrings but Jayne has refused to comply with the request.

The motion is asking the court to order Jayne to hand over the jewelry within 5 days and prohibit her from selling the earrings or transferring them to another person until then.

The RHOBH star has yet to respond in court. Girardi is unable to answer for himself given he is currently under a conservatorship. His family claims he is suffering from dementia and they had to move him into a senior living home.

Jayne slapped Girardi with divorce papers in 2020 after his legal problems started to mount. She denies having any knowledge of his alleged financial misdeeds.
