REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne’s “inconsistent statements” about her wealth on the Bravo reality series could be “used against her in court” for her ex, Tom Girardi’s law firm’s bankruptcy case.
The Bravolebrity is embroiled in legal trouble after Tom and Erika split following claims they “stole millions from plane crash victims.”
昨天, Ronald Richards, the attorney investgsting 埃里卡 for the bankruptcy case of Girardi Keese, Tom Girardi’s law firm, 告诉 第六页: “The show is a treasure trove of self-authenticating admissions from non-scripted actors who did not anticipate that many months later those statements would come back to haunt them or that they would be investigated.
“This is because none of the housewives have a duty to tell the truth on television. They are now caught in [一个] undesirable legal position, were they lying then or now.”
Ronald also told 美国周刊 在周五: “There’s a lot of inconsistent statements and admissions made by the non-scripted actors that we’re putting together to use in court.”
He added his lawyers are “going to take discovery from people that used to work for her.”
As to when Erika could be question Ronald shared: “There’s a lot of things we’re still trying to uncover.
We are going to be deposing her (埃里卡) at some point, but I want to get all the documents first. What’s important right now is following the money.”
昨天 Radar also reported, 根据法院文件, the trustee presiding over Tom’s involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy, petitioned this past December, have hired an auction company named ThreeSixty Assets Advisors to kick things off on the sale.
The 82-year-old may see plenty of his things auctioned off from his law offices on August 25, including a Cadillac DTS, an impressive wine collection, a signed Erin Brockovich poster, signed Beach Boys record, and even a printer.
Sports memorabilia, 图书, a piano, and even bronzed statues will also be available for purchase.
A report filed by an independent trustee investigating the firm’s assets claimed Tom’s company is in major debt and still owes $26million to “anywhere from dozens to hundreds of clients.”
A portion of these unpaid settlement funds – about $2million – are meant for the clients involved in the Lion Air Flight 610 坠毁案.
之前, Erika was accused of “hiding her bank statements,” as a trustee’s special litigation counsel previously confirmed that Tom’s law firm transferred an eye-opening $20 million to the 喝彩 star’s many businesses.
It seems the RHOBH 星星, 50, even created one of the businesses after news broke of the embezzlement scandal.
这 RHOBH star has denied any sort of involvement or having knowledge of her ex-husband’s business proceedings
埃里卡 filed for divorce from Tom 后 21 years of marriage in November.
