The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne did not hold back when it came to sharing her feelings about one of the lawyers representing her estranged husband Tom Girardi in the bankruptcy case against his firm, Girardi Keese.
Indeed, the 50-year-old’s legal drama moved from the courtroom to social media as she took to Twitter to lash out at a lawyer, Ronald Richards.
The Bravo star did not name the lawyer in her post, but she retweeted a fan who wrote: ‘There are 2 types of lawyers. Legal eagles And Bottom feeders The a** is the latter…’
The singer and actress also tweeted, ‘Clown a**’ alongside a GIF of Heath Ledger’s Joker clapping his hands.
‘Apparently anyone can be a “lawyer”‘, she said to one fan in another tweet.
In response to a different tweet, Jayne commented: ‘Low budget at best. He’s already complaining he has to spend his own money on this case. #hesinitforthemoney Don’t be fooled.’

Responding to Jayne’s tweets, Richards told Page Six: ‘It is unfortunate that there is no client control, which has resulted in more profane and tone-deaf posts which now are apparently directed at myself and my hardworking team.
‘We cannot help but point out the irony that she previously complained about comments made about her. However, now in a transparent attempt to deflect scrutiny from the source of her mass amounts of capital she is spending, she has now resorted to weaponizing her vast platform to hurl low-brow insults and mean tweets.’
He concluded: ‘Obviously, we will ignore them as they have no bearing on the work we are doing. We look forward to her attorney’s anticipated cooperation.’

Jayne shocked fans when she filed for divorce from Tom, 82, in November 2020, after more than 20 years of marriage.
She later exposed his alleged mistress – Justice Tricia A. Bigelow – to millions of her social media followers.
The following month, the estranged couple was accused of stealing settlement funds intended for the families of victims killed in a 2018 plane crash.
Jayne has denied the claims she ’embezzled millions’ of dollars to ‘fund’ her lavish lifestyle.
Meanwhile, Tom was later diagnosed with ‘dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s’ amid the pair’s legal woes and has been put under a conservatorship.
