Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne’s husband Tom Girardi was hit with a $15 million lawsuit for allegedly defaulting to repay loans totaling that exact amount.
Media outlet The Blast reported Friday that Law Finance Group is suing Girardi and his law firm, Girardi Keese, after the company gave the 79-year-old $15 million to fund his business. According to court documents obtained by the website, he allegedly did not pay back the loans.
Law Finance Group claims the loans, which were allegedly initiated in 2015, were “used to maintain Mr. Girardi’s lavish lifestyle and keep his prominent law firm financially afloat.”
The suit also alleges that Giaradi refused to complete a repayment plan that the two parties agreed on in August 2018. The terms of that agreement, detailed in the suit, claim that Girardi was supposed to make monthly payments by the end of October, along with a $5 million payment by January 1, 2019.
According to the report, Law Finance Group is seeking $15,151,989, the amount the defendants allegedly owe, plus damages.
