The case of Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi’s fall from grace gets more interesting by the day. Attorney Ronald Richards recently uncovered some voicemails that Tom allegedly left clients in order to keep them on the hook for a bit longer. The voicemails, which can be heard on SoundCloud, are very interesting and suspicious. Much like a lot of the information surrounding this case and the recent burglary on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s former home.
And while Tom and his conservator, Robert Girardi, are pushing the narrative that Tom is mentally unwell, it truly doesn’t seem that way. In the first voicemail, Tom is discussing Labor Day, we don’t know what year though. He is discussing a case he must have been working on for the client and needing signatures to move forward.
"“If we don’t have them on Friday, I will send you my personal check for this amount. Because I don’t want you upset and I know you are, and I don’t blame you. Nothing Is worse than going through something like this and then some goofball lawyer doesn’t send you the money. But anyway, it isn’t our fault and I promise you.”"
He promises a check from his own account if they don’t get the money in time, but we know that isn’t the case. Tom likely did not have the funds in his personal account and was likely waiting on funds from another case in order to pay off these victims. He was just trying to buy more time by pulling the sympathy card. Are we seeing a pattern yet?
Tom Girardi left some bizarre voicemails for clients, RHOBH’s Erika Jayne is still playing the avoidance card.
In the second voicemail, he starts off with, “I don’t want you mad at me, I’m working like a dog to try and get this thing resolved.” Tom continued by offering reasons why the client didn’t have the money yet. “The courts are closed, as you know. It isn’t my fault. I would like to see more than anything like to see you get your money.” If these voicemails are from the same person, it is likely these are from around September 2020 because the courts really don’t close often. It is possible he is trying to blame the delay on the pandemic.
Not only are these voicemails downright strange, but they also look really, really bad for Tom. He was coherent and alert enough to be attempting to manipulate clients to buy more time. At one point, he said he was calling the client on a Sunday from his personal phone, probably to try and make them feel special. As if he was actually interested in helping them.
One of the stranger parts is how Tom continues to ask them not to be mad at him. He sounds so empathetic and caring, but he’s really just trying to use their emotions to manipulate the situation. It truly is sickening how he’s doing all of this. And as each day passes, it seems less likely that Tom is of any diminished capacity.
It seems like he’s pulling every card in the book to delay the inevitable. It might have worked for 10 years, but it seems like the jig is up for Tom Girardi. Maybe there can be some resolution for the clients who put their trust in him.
