Erika Jayne Allegedly Filed for Divorce From Husband Tom Girardi Because He Was 'Cheating On Her' (Report)

Erika Girardi allegedly claims that her husband Tom Girardi had multiple affairs during their 21-year marriage.

The 49-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who filed for divorce from the 81-year-old attorney last month, has allegedly claimed infidelity as the reason for their split, People reported Friday (December 18).

“The reason she divorced Tom is because he was cheating on her with multiple women,” a source close to the couple told the outlet, adding that Erika claims “she’s known about his infidelity for years” but “wanted to try and save the marriage.”

“When she was performing her last week on Broadway, he left her high and dry and was frolicking around town instead of supporting her and attending her shows. She realized she would never be a priority to him and that was her breaking point,” the source added.

According to a court complaint obtained by People, several families who lost loved ones in a 2018 Boeing plane crash accused the Girardis of embezzling settlement funds meant to help the families of victims on Lion Air Flight 610, instead using the money to fund their “lavish Beverly Hills lifestyles.” Tom‘s law firm is now being held in civil contempt and had their assets frozen.

“The split was a long time coming. The lawsuit just coincided with her decision to leave him,” they also said.

She is seeking spousal support from Tom and asking that he pay her legal fees. Tom has asked to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to Erika, and asked that she pay his legal fees.
