Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne has been accused of receiving fraudulent transfers.
Legal documents obtained by PEOPLE stated that “Erika has direct knowledge that for at least 12 years, all of her expenses were being paid by [Girardi’s firm] as she was generating them.”
“Moreover, Erika has repeatedly contended, ‘It is expensive to be me.’ The glam cannot be supported by a sham,” the document continued.
It is alleged that Erika spent as much as $25 million in funds sent to her by her estranged husband, Tom Girardi Keese. Of this $25 million — more than $14 million were in American Express charges. Erika is also accused of creating a shell company to hide assets.
“Erika signed all of her tax returns, numerous credit card slips, and was well aware of the money she spent on the Debtor’s credit cards and the Debtor’s payment of her personal expenses,” the documents add.“Her feigned willful blindness and ostrich approach to these expenditures will do absolutely nothing to limit her liability.”
