The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Tom Girardi, Erika’s ex, had his conservatorship become official amid his failing health over recent weeks.
Tom Girardi’s conservatorship has become official after months of his failing health. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star has had to claim bankruptcy as he fights all of his ongoing lawsuits. His wife, Erika Jayne, has been silent on the matter but alleges she had no prior knowledge of his wrongdoings.
Tom was previously diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease back in March. In November, Erika filed for the divorce after the two were sued by the victims of Lion Air and were accused of embezzling funds. At the time, Tom asked for spousal support. Girardi and Keese, his law firm, has been pushed into bankruptcy, and he was also investigated by the State Bar of California for trying to influence workers. He later had his license revoked and can now no longer practice law in the state of California. Erika also recently agreed to testify against her estranged husband.
People revealed that Tom’s younger brother, Robert, filed the official letters of conservatorship with the courts, effectively putting him in charge of Tom and his estate. From the court records obtained, it was revealed that Tom’s memory loss was classified as a “major neurocognitive disorder.” The last hearing was on June 9, and the letters were just a follow-up procedure. Robert is now in charge of figuring out the best care for his 82-year-old brother.
Robert’s lawyer, Nicholas Van Brunt, released a statement that read, “It’s obviously a heartbreaking situation for Robert, but we agree with the court’s rulings yesterday” For the first time, Tom spoke out, saying he disagreed with the conservatorship, saying, “I think that we should put together the reasons why the conservatorship should be dissolved, and then we’ll address it, address the court.” He then shut down, saying he had nothing more to say to the court. Tom was put through numerous tests back in February to check his mental health and was ultimately found to be unfit.
As for Erika, lawyers are currently scrutinizing the newest season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to see if they can catch her in a lie. A judge recently ruled that Tom’s victims could go after her assets. Erika had remained silent on the matter, only speaking out during her confessionals when she was trying to explain how hard her marriage was to Tom since he controlled their life. The upcoming episodes are said to show more emotion as she learns of the lawsuits and trouble he has found himself in.
