Tom Girardi has broken his silence on his conservatorship while facing multiple lawsuits and health issues.
The estranged husband of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne said during a virtual court hearing on Wednesday that he had no interest in his brother, Robert Girardi, having control.
“Obviously, I disagree with the conservatorship altogether,” 82-year-old Tom told a judge of his brother controlling his person, estate and finances, Us Weekly reported.
“I think that we should put together the reasons why the conservatorship should be dissolved, and then we’ll address it, address the court. Right now, I have nothing to say to the court.”
Despite the embattled attorney’s protest, the judge ruled Robert should remain in control of Tom’s dealings.
As Page Six reported in early February, Robert was named the temporary conservator of his brother after he suffered a medical emergency. Just one month later, the legal eagle was diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease and dementia after he underwent a medical assessment as part of his brother’s efforts to be named Tom’s permanent conservator.
Jayne’s estranged husband’s health woes come in the midst of multiple legal snafus, including a divorce from the Bravolebrity, and the loss of his admission to the California State Bar.
The “RHOBH” star, 49, filed for dissolution weeks before the former couple was sued by a law firm representing the victims of Lion Air Flight 610 for allegedly embezzling money as part of their divorce.
Girardi proceeded to plead poverty in court. The case is ongoing.
Last December, Tom’s former law firm partner Robert Keese sued to dissolve their business venture, 1126 Wilshire Partnership. Keese and other attorneys alleged that Tom did not pay them the estimated $315,000 they earned from the partnership, instead pocketing the cash “for his own personal gain.”
Wells Fargo Financial Services is also suing Girardi for allegedly breaching agreements he made with the bank.
