In the last two years, Erika's marriage with her second husband unraveled, she and her then-husband faced a lawsuit and massive backlash.
Erika, 51, was born on July 10, 1971, in Atlanta, Georgia. She started her showbiz journey with minor roles in television shows and became a household face after she joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, in 2015. Jayne is also a talented singer and is gearing up for her upcoming Las Vegas residency.
Who Is Erika Jayne Dating?
Since her nasty divorce from Tom Girardi in 2020, Jayne has kept her romantic endeavors pretty low-key, but not completely concealed. The RHOBH fame has dropped hints and cryptic messages, suggesting her availability, and fooling around phase. Officially, Jayne is as single as any next girl.
Getting back in the dating pool, however, hasn't been easy for the blonde diva. She took a year to heal from the aftermaths of her divorce and the trove of chaos it brought along in her life. Jayne's name popped back in the dating headline in October 2021.
Sources didn't drop any names but revealed how the singer had been dating a lot of men. While Erika continues to play coy, prying fans haven't stopped connecting the dots and figuring out her dating timeline. She has been linked with Scott Disick, Michael Gaughan, and Scooter Braun, since 2021.
Erika Jayne's First Failed Marriage!
Jayne's claim-to-fame show, RHOBH, only documented her second conjugal life with former attorney, Thomas Girardi. Throughout her long stint in the franchise, viewers did gain some insights into Erika's previous relationship. The Roller Coaster crooner was married to Thomas Zizzo, from 1991 to 1996.
The singer-turned-reality star met Zizzo, working as a DJ at the time, years before she kicked off her Hollywood journey. The estranged couple shares a son, Thomas Zizzo Jr. Although not much is known about the duo's long-dissolved relationship, Erika currently shares an amicable bond with her first ex-husband.
Not long ago, the Pretty Mess crooner gave an update on her relationship with her son's father. Jayne was in a tough place with her divorce proceedings, legal woes, and negative media when Zizzo cheered her up with positive words.
The singer says she and Zizzo and closer than ever. And on top of that, Erika's mom and Zizzo's mom are apparently very close friends. "People don't understand this, but we're actually pretty tight," Jayne said. Erika and Zizzo's only son, Tommy, is completely oblivious to the celebrity life. He works as a police officer in California.
The Complete Truth About Erika Jayne's Second Marriage!
Jayne's now-dissolved marriage with Tom Girardi proves how nothing is as it seems. The RHOBH couple was considered one of the strongest and most sorted on the show but turns out not. The duo's divorce and the drama that followed established a contrasting reality about the pair's relationship.
The One Hot Pleasure singer was hustling as a waitress when she met Girardi in the 90s. Despite sharing an age gap of 32 years, Erika and Tom started dating, and six months into their dating bliss, the pair got engaged.
Jayne and Girardi walked down the aisle in January 1999 and went on to enjoy an enduring marriage. Girardi's high-profile job rarely allowed him to join in his wife's endeavor on Bravo. Jayne once explained how she and her husband had a regular conjugal marriage for the first ten years before it turned unconventional.
In November 2020, the Pretty Mess hitmaker filed for divorce from her then-husband and requested spousal support from him. And only a month after the divorce news, the duo landed in hot water as sources claimed that their divorce was just a distraction to embezzle money.
The estranged pair were sued by the law firm Edelson PC, which represented several grieving families. The suit claimed that Erika and Tom embezzled money meant for the victims of the fatal 2018 Lion Air plane crash.
While Jayne was not guilty, Tom Girardi was indicted for fraud and other charges!
"At the heart of this deception is Defendant Girardi and his need to fund outrageous lifestyles for himself and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Erika Jayne," the suit read. The duo's publicized legal drama was even documented in Hulu's The Housewife and the Hustler.
Erika scored a massive win against her ex-husband's attorneys, Philip R. Sheldon and Robert P. Finn, who claimed that the Bravo star knew and encouraged Girardi's illegal activities to fund her lavish lifestyle. Jayne's estranged husband, on the other hand, got indicted for stealing millions from his clients.
