While Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi’s legal drama is still unfolding, Girardi’s law firm has moved to selling off assets, including underwear, to settle some of its debts.

Girardi’s law firm Girardi Keese filed for bankruptcy in December and is now in the process of liquidating to help pay off creditors who claim that the personal-injury attorney embezzled millions of dollars to fund his and Jayne’s lavish lifestyle

The auction, which will begin closing on August 25, includes red Agent Provocateur lingerie and Girardi’s receipt for it. Bidding for the lacy set, including a piece named “birthday suit,” is currently at $100.

Fans can also buy a whole package of “Erika Jayne Collectibles,” which includes magazines signed by “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, along with one of her CDs and a Billboard plaque. 

There have already been 30 bids on that collection at the time of writing, with the current price at $825.

Girardi’s law firm has put a total of 697 items up for auction, with other items including a rotisserie chicken oven, Girardi’s monogrammed briefcase, and a 2011 Cadillac. 

There’s also plenty of office furniture, some Versace crystal bowls, a bedazzled globe, dozens of bottles of Champagne, a Chinese ceremonial sword, and an autographed photo of Jay Leno. 

You can even buy Girardi’s old awards, which include “litigating legend,” “trial lawyer hall of fame,” and “man of the year.” 

Shortly after Jayne split from Girardi in November, a class-action lawsuit claimed the couple’s divorce was a “sham” to hide money that Girardi was accused of embezzling from the widows and orphans of plane-crash victims.

In July, a judge ruled that Jayne was liable to pay three of her husband’s former clients who are owed $11 million.

The motion came after a bankruptcy trustee found that Girardi had transferred $20 million in loans from his law firm, Girardi Keese, to Jayne’s company, EJ Global.

Jayne’s legal woes have been covered extensively on this season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” In one recent episode, Jayne told her costars that Girardi’s personality completely changed after he drove off a cliff and was unconscious for 12 hours in 2017.
