RHOBH's Erika Jayne ditches designer gowns for casual tracksuit as she grocery shops after bankruptcy & fraud scandals

ERIKA Jayne has fully embraced a casual lifestyle as she was spotted grocery shopping in a baggy black tracksuit after ditching her designer gowns and glam squad.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has donned a more somber appearance after being slammed with a $25million lawsuit late last month.

Erika, 50, was seen out on a grocery store run during the Labor Day holiday looking disheveled in a baggy black tracksuit.

The matching two-piece set had long sleeves, with white and blue stripes down the sides, completely hiding her figure.

The reality star wore her hair in a messy bun piled on top of her head, and covered her face in large black sunglasses and a black mask.

Erika joined her assistant as they unloaded food and flowers from their cart and packed the car full.

The TV personality's new look was a far cry from her previous full-glam hair, makeup, and designer outfits.

The blonde has ditched her lavish lifestyle for a more subdued and casual way of living.

Erika's new persona followed the news late last month that she was slammed with a $25million lawsuit as a part of her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s bankruptcy case.


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

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

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

The trustee claimed that the actress used the firm's money to pay for her American Express bill, glam team, and other expenses.

The suit 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.”

Although Erika has claimed she was not aware of Tom's misdealings, the trustee has said that 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.”

They continued: “Erika signed all of her tax returns, numerous credit card slips, and was well aware of the money she spent on the Debtor’s credit cards and the Debtor’s payment of her personal expenses.

“Her feigned willful blindness and ostrich approach to these expenditures will do absolutely nothing to limit her liability.”


Tom's firm has allegedly reached over $101 million in debt.

The former lawyer has been disbarred, losing his right to practice law after he was declared bankrupt, owing millions in liabilities and his belongings are being auctioned in an attempt to raise funds.

The 82-year-old is now facing numerous lawsuits in unpaid settlements forcases he won including for victims of horrific accidents and the families of the Lion air disaster victims.

Just weeks before the fraud and embezzlement scandal came to light late last year, Tom and Erika filed for divorce.

However, many have labeled their separation as a "sham" as they navigate their massive fraud allegations.
