Erika Jayne's Estranged Husband Tom Girardi Breaks Silence After Being Placed Under Permanent Conservatorship

Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of Erika Jayne, has been placed under a permanent conservatorship.

On Thursday (June 10), the 82-year-old lawyer appeared at a hearing in the Los Angeles Superior Court where his brother, Robert, was officially made the conservator over Tom‘s person and estate.

After the judge made his decision, Tom released a statement about the situation.

“Obviously I disagree with the conservatorship altogether and we’ll do everything we can to dissolve it as soon as possible,” Tom said, via ET Online. “I think we should put together reasons why the conservatorship should be dissolved and then we’ll address the court. But right now, there’s nothing to say to the court.”

If you forgot, the 49-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star filed for divorce from Tom back in November 2020 after 21 years of marriage, claiming that he was cheating on her.

Shortly after the filing, Erika and Tom were sued for allegedly faking their divorce to embezzle money that was supposed to go to families who lost loved ones in a 2018 Boeing plane crash.

Then in February 2021, Tom was placed under a temporary conservatorship, with Robert serving a conservator, amid health issues.

In court documents submitted by Robert, they claimed that Tom‘s health had “sadly deteriorated to the point where he cannot care for himself without assistance.”

“His short-term memory is severely compromised and, on information and belief, he is often not oriented as to date, time or place,” the documents stated. “He is unable to handle his financial affairs and protect his property at present, despite serious financial and legal problems.”

In the new court hearing, Tom‘s lawyer said that he has started receiving treatment for dementia, with the court finding that he has a major neurocognitive disorder.

Erika and Tom‘s marital and legal troubles will be explored in a new Hulu documentary, which will be released on June 14. You can watch the trailer here.
