Pictured: Tom Girardi, 82, seen with a bruised eye in first sighting since split with Erika Jayne – Daily Mail

Tom Girardi has been seen for the first time in over a year amid his divorce from Erika Jayne and legal woes, sporting a bruised eye.

The embattled attorney, 82, was seen walking around looking visibly thinner as well while stepping out with an unidentified woman.

It is not known how he sustained the injury to his face although he has had ‘issues’ with ‘mental competence’ and it was subsequently disclosed that he had been diagnosed with dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

Tom wore loose fitting shorts with a blue top as a woman walked with him, holding his arm for part of the time.

He was placed under a conservatorship as a result of his dementia diagnosis; his brother Robert was named temporary conservator in February, before it becoming permanent four months later.

Tom and estranged wife Erika Jayne, who split in November 2020, are facing claims of allegedly embezzling settlement funds that were meant to help the families of the Lion Air plane crash victims.

In December, Tom and his Girardi Keese law firm were sued for allegedly embezzling funds from families who lost loved ones during the 2018 Boeing plane crash.

That same month, Tom was sued by his business partners, which led to his chapter 7 bankruptcy petition; clients of the law firm are also suing him, alleging that their money was also misappropriated.

In March, the LA Times reported that there had been more than 100 lawsuits filed and multiple complaints made to the California State Bar against Girardi by disgruntled clients who alleged financial wrongdoing and theft between the 1980s and up until last year.

In June, Jayne, 50, has been ‘ordered to turn over financial records’ from her accountant, lawyer and landlord as part of the embezzlement investigation and a bankruptcy trustee is documenting the couple’s assets. 

It’s been alleged that the split provided a way for the couple to embezzle funds and that Jayne had received ‘tens of millions of dollars’ from her husband’s firm to fund her projects, Us Weekly reported in June.

An investigator in the bankruptcy trial of Tom and Erika says he wants to take into account ‘inconsistent statements’ the reality star has made on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. 

Investigator Ronald Richards told Us Weekly last week: ‘There’s a lot of inconsistent statements and admissions made by the non-scripted actors that we’re putting together to use in court.’

Asked whether the attorney has seen ‘a lot of inconsistencies with the story’ being told on RHOBH in regards to Erika and Tom’s lawsuit and financial woes, Richards said: ‘That’s correct.’ 

Richards added that his team is ‘going to take discovery from people that used to work for her.’

He added that Jayne, her former employees, and her costars could be called in for questioning, though it is unclear when.

 ‘There’s a lot of things we’re still trying to uncover,’ he told the outlet. ‘We are going to be deposing her (Erika) at some point, but I want to get all the documents first. What’s important right now is following the money.’

This could make things tense for Erika, who has been very open on RHOBH about the case, recently telling her housewives co-stars: ‘I’d like to know where the money is.’ 

In a separate interview with the outlet Richards says he has found records that indicate Girardi Keese funds were used to buy jewelry, although has yet to find proof that it is connected to Erika.

‘We saw jewelry payments that the firm has bought from a jeweler,’ he told the outlet, adding this in his estimation the purchases were in the ‘hundreds of thousands of dollars’ range.

Last month, Erika addressed the situation when she was grilled by her housewives on the show about the claims.
