Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne has moved out of the Pasadena home she shared with her husband, Tom Girardi, and downsized by moving into an L.A. condo amid their pending divorce.
The Sun describes her new crib as a “hipster-style, one-bed, two-bath condo” and a property website claims that her new pad belongs to one of the most “glamorous” historic buildings in L.A.
Erika reportedly pays $7,000 a month for the new place.
The West Hollywood property is reportedly very artistic in nature, with colorful art pieces hanging on the walls accompanied by a grand piano. Erika can also keep in shape for her performances with a rooftop pool and gym.
Erika’s $1 million dollar condo sounds like a good fit for her current needs. However, the downsize is a big shift from the $8.5 million mansion she shared with her ex-husband.
She has reportedly also asked Tom for spousal support to help pay for the new place in addition to paying for her attorney fees.
Erika and Tom’s Divorce
Erika announced that she had filed for divorce from Tom on November 3.
“After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi,” Erika said in a statement to E! News.
“This is not a step taken lightly or easily. I have great love and respect for Tom and for our years and the lives we built together.”
However, a source disclosed to InTouch that the two had grown apart long before then.
“Erika and Tom have led separate lives for years,” the insider shared. “[She] would go off touring and doing her own thing, and Tom would do his.”
The source alleged that the pandemic is what caused Erika to pull the trigger and file for divorce.
“The pandemic is having a mental impact on everyone, and Erika’s been reflecting on what she wants moving forward. Being married to Tom isn’t part of her plan,” the source added.
Tom has also been hit with two lawsuits, which may have influenced Erika’s decision.
Erika’s affair rumors
The couple was not only distant, but the rumor mill has also been going wild with claims that they may have not been faithful to each other.
Some fans have been speculating that Erika had an affair with her Dancing with the Stars partner, Gleb Savchenko.
Meanwhile, former RHOBH star Dana Wilkey has shared claims on her social media that Erika had been sleeping with a mystery man.
She previously said she had a hunch the person was a FENTY model, but then shared claims from an unidentified source who claimed to know the identity of the mystery man.
