RHOBH's Erika Jayne slashes price of $13M mansion for THIRD time as home now listed at $8.9M amid embezzlement scandal

REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne has been forced to slash the price of her $13M mansion shared with ex Tom Girardi with the asking price now plummeting to $8.9M.

The 50-year-old reality star announced her split from Tom, 82, in November 2020 after more than 20 years of marriage as the lawyer is "in huge debt to clients" amid their divorce. 


Erika's former husband Tom is being sued for allegedly embezzling millions from the families of plane crash victims.

Yet Erika is now embroiled in a legal battle of her own after she was slammed with a $25million lawsuit that’s part of estranged husband Tom’s bankruptcy case.

The XXPEN$IVE songstress was sued for allegedly knowing that her 82-year-old ex's law firm was paying for her expenses for the past 12 years.

According to legal documents, first obtained by Page Six, the trustee in the bankruptcy case wants Erika to pay the firm back.

As a result, after the pad in Pasadena, LA,failed to sell, the fee has again dropped.

It was originally listed for $13M but dropped all the way down to $11.5M in June, $9.9M in July, and now all the way to $8.9M – still with no buyer offers.

According to its online listing from the Compass agency, the sprawling estate covers a huge 1.72-acre lot and was built by renowned architect Myron Hunt, who also designed the now-demolished Ambassador Hotel, where Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1968.

Boasting four bedrooms, one with a walk-in vanity room, nine bathrooms, and a three-car garage. 

The lavishly decorated abode has five fireplaces in and around the mansion, a library, an outdoor pool and there's also a small chapel on site.

Built in 1982 by Hunt, the property has "a solid bronze front door" and features dramatic walnut paneling throughout.

Downstairs inside the mansion there is a huge grand living room which contains a coffered ceiling, a large fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows.

There are a pair of French doors that can be thrown open to walk straight out onto the huge garden.

The stunning veranda extends out to a series of fountains cascading down levels to the pool.

There is also a romantic chandelier-lit pavilion, covered nooks and street lamps to give a cute touch.

The spacious kitchen features a large island in the middle with chairs to allow diners to eat at.

While many of the rooms feature wooden panels, the dining room is decorated with silk floral wallpaper.

It also has floor-to-ceiling windows and a huge stone-faced fireplace.

The well-stocked library contains heavy wooden paneled walls and parquet flooring.

The spacious master bedroom has his and her dressing areas, one of which has an adjoining bathroom.

In the en-suite there is a salon area for hair styling and features a huge bathtub supposedly "enveloped in red silk walls."

There are two spare bedrooms in the mansion's opposite wing.

Elsewhere in property there is "a small 'chapel' to go for reflection.


The lawsuit comes after Erika was accused of using her company, EJ Global, to spend over $25 million from the firm.

The TV star was sued for allegedly knowing that her ex-husband's law firm was paying for her expenses for the past 12 years.

In her 2018 memoir Pretty Mess, Erika claimed her music career was "self-funded."

She was alleged to have used the money to pay for her American Express bill, glam team and other expenses.

The lawsuit claimed: “She attempts to create a distinction between handing her money directly versus paying all of her bills directly.

“The distinction, like her prior motion for reconsideration is meritless. Any payments made for her benefit are her responsibility.”

The trustee said Erika’s claims she wasn't aware of Tom wrongdoings is not an excuse, arguing “it would be a miscarriage of justice if [she] was allowed to simply walk completely free of owing over $25,000,000 to the Estate.”

Her woes have played out on the Bravo series, as she broke down when co-stars "tortured her" over Tom's embezzlement scandal.

Erika has also been spotted ditching her designer gear for tracksuits amid the tough legal issues.


Yet The Sun exclusively revealed how her $40K a month glam squad are staying loyal and sticking by her.

A source close to the reality star told The Sun: “Her squad is all genuine friends with her, they are not fair-weather friends that left when things got hard. 

“They truly are her confidants whether or not they are on her payroll.”

The insider continued: ”They continued working with her during all the drama this season of Housewives but not as often. 

“And they’ve done her up off-camera since then too. They are sticking by her side. 

“But they don't do as much as they used to with her now but they do what they can.”

According to the source, each person on the team “has gotten paid” still for their work. 


A report filed by an independent trustee investigating the firm’s assets has claimed Tom’s company is in major debt and still owes $26million to “anywhere from dozens to hundreds of clients.”

A portion of these unpaid settlment funds – about $2million – are meant for the clients involved in the Lion Air Flight 610 crash case.
