Erika Jayne ponied up thousands of dollars to the very news outlet that singlehandedly wrecked her and her estranged husband's reputations by blowing up Thomas Girardi's alleged embezzlement scandal.
In documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star spent more than $10,000 on the Los Angeles Times.
The legal letter outlining Erika's spending habits were filed by the lawyers for the trustee overseeing Girardi's bankruptcy case. They claim her estranged husband's law firm transferred $25 million into Jayne's company, EJ Global LL, over the course of several years.
In the documents, they outline Erika's alleged elaborate spending habits from 2008 to 2020.
It shows Erika allegedly dropped $10,400 for the Los Angeles Times Magazine. Ironically, this is the same news outlet heavily featured on RHOBH after dropping its December in-depth article titled, The Legal Titan And The 'Real Housewife': The Rise And Fall Of Tom Girardi And Erika Jayne.
The documents claim the singer charged $14,259,012.84 to an American Express card and dropped hundreds of thousands on her glam team.
They also appear to reveal Erika spent more than $250,000 on celebrity makeup artist Troy Jensen's services.
According to the Los Angeles-based artist's LinkedIn, he's beat the faces of stars like Christina Aguilera, Bjork, Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Rachel McAdams; however, Erika is not listed.

The letter will be filed in the Girardi Keese bankruptcy proceedings. Erika's estranged husband — who was once a powerful attorney — was forced into Chapter 7 bankruptcy earlier this year, with creditors claiming he screwed them out of millions.
As for the embezzlement accusations, Girardi has been accused of stealing from his clients, some of whom the Los Angeles Times say are orphans and widows.
He's also being accused of using their money to fund Erika's lavish lifestyle.
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.”
