Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne was spotted at a luxury salon in West Hollywood looking ready for a day of pampering — only days after claiming she was without the funds to pay a $2.2 million tax bill from the IRS, has learned.

The 50-year-old Bravo star was seen out with her longtime assistant at the Élite Aesthetics Wellness Spa last week. She looked downcast as she walked around without a stitch of makeup on.

The troubled reality star rocked a black and white sweater with a pair of oversized black sunglasses. She finished off her low-key look with a matching scrunchie on the top of her head.

The trip to the salon is interesting given Jayne's alleged dire financial situation.

However, Girardi and his now-closed law firm were forced into bankruptcy in 2020. Many of his former clients accused him of embezzling money they were owed from settlements and using it to fund his lavish lifestyle.

The court appointed a trustee to take over control of Girardi's finances and assets. They have been attempting to sell off his property to collect money for creditors. Some of the individuals owed money include orphans, widows and a fire burn victim.

The trustee sued Jayne demanding the return of $25 million Girardi spent on bills for her company, EJ Global. The reality star has denied all allegations of wrongdoing and claimed she knew nothing about her husband's alleged misdeeds.

Regardless, the trustee has also demanded Jayne turn over the diamond earrings claiming they were purchased with the client's money. Jayne is fighting to stop the diamonds from being taken from her and auctioned off.

As part of her effort, she filed a declaration stating, “My only assets are my personal belongings (which include jewelry) and my income from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills television program. I also have miscellaneous sponsorship income related to appearances or endorsement of products,” she wrote.

The star then revealed the tax problems. She said “in approximately late May 2022" her business manager was informed by the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) that she owed $2,226,985.77 in taxes for tax year 2019."

Jayne told the court she is “in the midst of trying to figure out the basis of this tax bill with the assistance of my business manager, who is also an accountant.”

The reality star added, “I do not have the ability to pay the FTB tax bill. I also do not know if the FTB is claiming any sort of lien on my assets, which include the diamond earrings.”
