KEY POINTS

  • The law firm suing Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi on behalf of the 2018 Lion Air flight victims wants her to stop selling her clothes
  • The estranged couple remains beholden to California’s communal property laws despite Jayne filing for divorce in November
  • Jayne was also asked to deposit any money earned from her recent sales 

Erika Jayne should stop selling her clothes online amid her estranged husband Tom Girardi's asset freeze, according to the law firm suing them for allegedly embezzling funds meant for families of the victims of the fatal 2018 Lion Air plane crash.

Edelson PC filed legal documents Friday requesting that a judge order Jayne, 49,  to put a halt to her clothing business, noting that as Girardi's assets have been frozen, it should extend to the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star as well. The law firm said the 81-year-old lawyer may have purchased the clothes for her, and they remain beholden to California's communal property laws despite Jayne filing for divorce in November.

"Simply put: the Court froze all of Tom Girardi’s assets, and that means all communal property is frozen too," the court documents obtained by Page Six stated. "Erika Girardi must stop selling her clothes.” 

This comes just a few days after Jayne shared a clip promoting her online collection on Twitter Wednesday. She even offered a 10% discount using the code “ERIKA10."

The law firm has also asked that Jayne deposit any money earned from the sales in its new filing.

Jayne's move was met with criticism on Twitter. "This raises tone deafness to a new level," one commented.

"Aren’t they seizing all this property since y’all be embezzling from clients?" another asked.

"Before anyone buys, she’s going broke and trying to pay for lawyers so she can get out of STEALING from plane crash victims. Your money is better suited going to a more ethical business or person," a third person wrote.

Others, however, came to her defense. "People what happened to innocent until proven guilty? What if crazy notion that Erika had no idea what was going on? Bear in mind Tom was never home? What if another crazy notion everything she buys is actually from the money she makes? #leaveheealone," a Twitter user commented.

"I'm with you, I don't believe that she knew. I've given her the benefit of the doubt. you're right he was never home she's making her money who said she knew. I don't think it's right that people bullying her down like this," another agreed.

Earlier this month, Edelson PC sued Jayne and Girardi on behalf of the 2018 Lion Air flight victims for allegedly embezzling funds and attempting to conceal it through their “sham” divorce.

Girardi has since declared that he is broke. In court documents, he claimed he doesn't have as much money as his creditors think.
