Erika was sued for $25 million by the trustee handling the bankruptcy case on Friday, Page Six reports.

According to documents, the RHOBH star allegedly knew Girardi's law firm was paying for her expenses for at least 12 years, and now, they want her to pay the company back.

The trustee claims “it would be a miscarriage of justice if [she] was allowed to simply walk completely free of owing over $25,000,000 to the Estate.”

“She attempts to create a distinction between handing her money directly versus paying all of her bills directly,” the lawsuit alleges. “The distinction, like her prior motion for reconsideration is meritless. Any payments made for her benefit are her responsibility.”
