Erika Jayne got a nasty shock at LAX airport when she was served with a $50 million racketeering lawsuit
Trials and legal entanglements have become a regular part of life for ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Erika Jayne since the embezzlement case against her husband/disgraced attorney Tom Girardi began.
As law enforcement continues to investigate her alleged role and the extent of her involvement in the ongoing money embezzlement case, the reality star decided to take a break from all the legal drama and headed to Hawaii for a luxury vacation with her colleagues from ‘RHOBH’ to sneak Lisa Rinna and Diana Jenkins. After a relaxing stay in a luxurious Maui Airbnb that rents $205,000 a month and sipping champagne while flashing her $189,000 Cartier ring, Erika returned to Los Angeles. But the ‘RHOBH’ star was to get a nasty shock at LAX when she was served with a $50million extortion lawsuit while waiting at the baggage claim counter.
According to Page Six, the 51-year-old star was approached by an unidentified woman while she was waiting at the baggage claim desk. The woman handed Erika two stacks of documents with the lawsuit against her. The outlet reported: “I just wanted to give you these documents. This is a subpoena and complaint to serve you,” the woman reportedly said in the video footage while presenting the documents to Erika.
The new lawsuit was filed by Edelson PC, which charges Erika with “nine counts, including racketeering, conspiracy to commit racketeering, wrongful business practices and fraud” in connection with her husband Tom’s money embezzlement case. “Tom and Erika routinely misappropriated client settlement funds to project an image of wealth and support a lifestyle made for reality TV,” the lawsuit reads. The lawsuit also alleges that Erika’s shell company — EJ Global Company — “was formed for the purpose of funneling money from Girardi Keese to Erika.”
In addition, Edelson PC alleges in court that Erika was aware of her husband’s “plot” to allegedly embezzle settlement money allocated to the families of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610. In the lawsuit, Erika is “put on display”.[ing]”Her lavish lifestyle and “acting as the ‘frontwoman’ of the operation selling the world (including unsuspecting customers) that Girardi Keese was successful.” However, this isn’t the first time Edelson PC has come after Erika. Back in April, Erika was named in another racketeering lawsuit filed by the law firm. But Erika was dismissed from this lawsuit.
While it remains to be seen if the reality star will once again clear her name from the new racketeering lawsuit, the internet, meanwhile, has had several strong opinions on the matter. Many Twitter users were delighted to see Erika’s takedown while the fierce lawsuit was served on them. One user tweeted: “LMFAO she is a sociopathic liar. That doesn’t shock me. Love that she’s being served on ANOTHER lawsuit at LAX. She’ll get Social Security (if there’s any left) when she’s done with VICTIMS sue her.” “She has so many pending lawsuits against her… Does she really think people will believe her when she says she doesn’t care guilty? I hope she loses it all and more! She is a gross human being,” wrote another user. “I hope #ErikaJayne gets everything that comes to her #RHOBH,” added one user.
Some users even went so far as to call on Bravo and Andy Cohen to get involved in compensating victims. One user shared, “Honestly I think @BravoTV and @Andy should be sued too. Subsequent aid. You enable and give #ErikaJayne a weekly platform for her lies and the opportunity to further defame/re-traumatize unfortunate, hapless disaster and accident victims. #RHOBH.” “@Andy Cohen is worth $50 million. He and @BravoTV should be partly responsible for compensating widows and orphans as #ErikaJayne is partly their creation – they gave Girardi a national platform to present themselves as a legitimate legal expert to scam unsuspecting customers,” the user continued in a follow-up tweet. Another commented, “I think they should just take their paychecks and pile them up to hand out to their victims.” “Erika Jayne was $50M racketeering lawsuit served! #possessed Andy really knows how to produce!” trolled one user.
