Erika Jayne Served With $50M Lawsuit After Landing at LAX Following Hawaiian Vacation With Lisa Rinna and Diana Jenkins – The Real Housewives
Erika Jayne was brought back to reality just moments after stepping off a plane at LAX following a luxurious vacation in Hawaii with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars Lisa Rinna and Diana Jenkins.
After arriving at LAX on Friday night, the Pretty Mess singer was served with papers for a $50 million racketeering lawsuit.
Erika, who was dressed in a white matching sweatsuit, looked less than thrilled while being approached at baggage claim by the process server. She also donned a fresh face with her hair in a top knot. She rocked white sneakers and a Gucci duffle bag to complete her look.
“I just wanted to give you these documents. This is a summons and complaint to serve you,” the woman said in a video of the incident obtained by Page Six.
The lawsuit, filed by Edelson PC, alleges that Erika was aware of her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s “scheme.” Tom allegedly embezzled settlement funds from the Lion Air 610 plane crash victims.
Erika has been accused of nine charges, including racketeering, conspiracy to commit racketeering, unlawful business practice, and deceit.
“Tom and Erika routinely misappropriated client settlement money to project an image of wealth and to prop up a lifestyle made for reality TV,” the lawsuit claims.
The lawsuit also claims that Erika’s company EJ Global “was created for the purpose of funneling money from Girardi Keese to benefit Erika.”
The court documents accuse Erika of “flaunt[ing]” her lavish lifestyle while also “acting as the ‘frontwoman’ of the operation, selling to the world (including unsuspecting clients) that Girardi Keese was successful.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
