Publish date:

A judge has ordered that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne can be sued by the embezzlement victims of her estranged husband, Tom Girardi.

Joseph Ruigomez, Jaime Ruigomez and Kathleen Ruigomez can now begin collections proceedings against Erika Jayne.

"All assets identified by the Ruigomez family shall be subject to all rights of the Girardi bankruptcy estate and the [Girardi Keese] bankruptcy estate, which parties shall meet and confer in good faith to determine the character/ownership of the identified assets," the court documents read. "The Ruigomez Family, the Girardi Trustee and the GK Trustee shall cooperate with each other with their collection efforts against Erika."


Tom reportedly owes the family $11 million. Just weeks ago, a trustee claimed that $20 million had been moved in Erika Jayne's accounts by her estranged husband.

"Erika has created a new company after the news broke of this scandal, which appears to simply be a successor company," per E! News. "Erika has multiple financial accounts and the Debtor's books show Erika owes large receivables to the Debtor."
