RHOBH’s Erika Jayne spotted makeup-free as she indulges in fast food after being served $50M lawsuit for ’embezzlement’
REAL Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne was spotted makeup-free on Friday as she indulged in fast food.
It comes after she was served with a $50M lawsuit that accuses her of multiple charges including racketeering.
Pictured outside her downsized home in Los Angeles, Erika kept her head held high despite her legal woes.
She was pictured makeup-free with her hair pulled up in a casual ponytail.
The RHOBH actress wore a plain black button-up and matching pants with Pretty Mess sliders.
But she glammed up the outfit with a quilted leather Chanel bag and perfectly manicured red nails.
Erika sipped on a milkshake and carried a bag of food from Chick-fil-A while holding a pair of white Chanel loafers under her arm.
She was also photographed pulling her trash cans onto the curb.
Erika now lives in a small bungalow in the Hancock Park district of LA after she filed for divorce from disgraced lawyer Tom Girardi.
She confirmed their breakup in November 2020.
A NOT-SO-PRETTY MESS
Although she has now split from her husband, Erika is currently facing a very public legal scandal relating to her ex.
It began after Tom, a former superstar attorney, was accused of embezzling funds from the victims of an air crash flight.
Last month, Erika was served with her own $50m lawsuit as she is accused of being the “frontwoman” to Tom’s alleged racketeering scheme.
She was given the court papers at LAX airport after she arrived back from a luxurious Hawaii getaway.
The new lawsuit accuses Erika of nine charges including racketeering, conspiracy to commit racketeering, and receipt of stolen property.
It claims: “Tom and Erika routinely misappropriated client settlement money to project an image of wealth and to prop up a lifestyle made for reality TV.”
It also alleges that Erika’s company EJ Global “was created for the purpose of funneling money from Girardi Keese to benefit Erika.”
Edelson PC claims in court docs that Erika was aware of Tom’s “scheme”.
According to the papers, Erika “flaunted” her pricey lifestyle on RHOBH and on social media, “acting as the ‘frontwoman’ of the operation.”
The reality star maintains her innocence, but the scandal has certainly taken its toll.
Erika revealed to her costars she was taking Lexapro because she had “dreaded waking up”.
She also caused a scene at numerous events after getting drunk on the current season of RHOBH.
CRACK THE WHIP
On this week’s episode, Erika announced she has new plans for a very NSFW career.
“I’ve decided I wanna be like a part-time dominatrix,” she told her team of shocked assistants.
In a confessional, Erika revealed why she felt like she would be suited to the job.
The Bravo personality explained: “Well I’m bossy, I like to administer a little bit of pain for pleasure.”
