Erika Jayne has suggested in new court documents that the $750,000 earrings she recently handed over amid an estranged husband Thomas Girardic‘s bankruptcy and a $25 million lawsuit filed against her were actually part of a previous insurance claim.
In addition to claiming that she owes $2.2 million to the state of California for the 2019 tax year, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has shared that the expensive jewelry was a “gift replacement” as a previous $2.5 million tax debt and a previous audit of her company, EJ Global, were made public.
“Erika Girardi earrings opp: [Erika Jayne] comes out with a real testimony that goes against the motion, “lawyer Ronald Richards announced on Twitter on June 15. “She claims she owes CA $2.2 million for 2019 in taxes plus the earrings were a gift replacement for an insurance claim from a previous burglary.”
In a second tweet, the attorney further said that Erika owed $2.5 million for the years 2011, 2012 and 2013, but she opposed the number and did not include the debt in her recently filed opposition documents.
“Erika Girardi has a long history with the Franchise Tax Board of not paying her taxes,” he said. revealed† “She owes $2,519,882.40 for the years 2011 – 2013, which she personally protested before EJ Global, which is still suspended. She was assisted by counsel. Her opp omits any proof of tax due for 2019.”
In a third message to his followers, Ronald revealed that the RHOBH Cast member claimed in her new documents that she had not received a bill from California’s Franchise Tax Board until last month, noting that if she were to update her company’s status from suspended to active, she will owe even more.
“Here is [Erika Jayne]midnight statement isolated. She says she just received the FTB tax bill in May 2022. Of course, if EJ EJ Global updates and files returns, it will grow,” he explained† “EJ omits in her statement that she has personally participated in a tax audit before.”
In the year and a half since Erika and Thomas were accused of stealing settlement money from many of his clients and using their money to maintain their luxurious lifestyle, numerous additional lawsuits have been filed as Erika insists she is innocent and Thomas, who diagnosed with dementia in 2021, continues to live in a retirement home for seniors.
