In the legal documents obtained by PEOPLEErika claimed she doesn’t have the ‘ability’ to pay the California tax board, after receiving a notice from administrators in May of this year.
The presentation reads: ‘I am trying to figure out the basis for this tax bill with the help of my business manager who is also an accountant. I don’t have the ability to pay the [California Franchise Tax Board] tax bill.’
Erika states in the documents that she is not sure if the tax board is “claiming any kind of lien” regarding her $750,000 pair of earrings that she was asked to return due to Tom’s bankruptcy case.
It was previously alleged in court documents that the earrings were purchased through a client trust at Tom’s law firm, Girardi Keese, and written off as part of the tax expense. Erika was ordered to return the items to help pay off Tom’s creditors.
Erika’s ex-husband, Girardi, was accused of embezzling millions of dollars intended for the victims of the 2018 Boeing plane crash, and both had to give up their lavish lifestyles as a result.
“I never worked at the GK law firm,” Erika stated in her presentation. ‘I never handled the finances of GK. I never had access to or knew anything about how TG or GK managed any of their clients’ escrow accounts.
“At the time, to the best of my knowledge, TG and our marital community had extensive net worth and TG and GK had very high incomes. I had no reason to doubt or question the origin of the funds used by TG to purchase the earrings,” he added.
“I never knew or heard from anyone that any of the gifts TG had given me at any time, including the earrings in 2007, were purchased with money that did not belong to TG or belonged to someone else.”
“During our marriage, I believed that TG and GK were financially successful, extremely wealthy, and made huge amounts of money,” Erika added, making it clear that Tom “handled all the finances of our marriage” and that she “absolutely had no money.” any”. participation in or knowledge of its business practices.
