‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Diana Jenkins announced Wednesday that she has donated $100,000 to the alleged victims of Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of her co-star Erika Jayne who is in the legal hot water.
The 50-year-old wealthy philanthropist claimed in an Instagram post that she was “unaware” of the 2018 Lion Air Flight 610 tragedy until it “became a topic of conversation” on ” RHOBH”.
She recently became a full-time cast member of the 12th season of the Bravo series.
“I feel so much sympathy for the widows and orphans left behind,” Jenkins, 50, wrote.
“I know firsthand the pain and suffering that comes with losing a family member, having lost my brother in the final days of the Bosnian war. I want to do what I can to support these people who have suffered so much.
A press release from Jenkin’s charity, the Sunela Foundation, shared that the donated funds will benefit the “immediate family members of the 189 passengers and crew who were killed” during the fatal flight in 2018.
Jayne, 51, appears to support the initiative by commenting on several red heart emojis under Jenkin’s Instagram post. However, she – alongside her ex-husband – is named in several lawsuits involving the alleged victims.
Girardi, 83, has been accused of embezzling money from the Lion Air Flight 610 victim’s lawsuit settlement to fund the “Pretty Mess” singer’s lavish lifestyle.
Jayne maintained that she had no knowledge of her ex-husband’s alleged wrongdoings, but allegedly received $25 million from Girardi’s former company, Girardi & Keese, to cover her expenses over a 12-year period. .
In August, the “Xxpen$ive” singer scored a major legal victory when a judge found she had no “actual knowledge” of Girardi’s alleged wrongdoing.
His attorney, Evan C. Borges, exclusively told Page Six at the time that the ruling could set a precedent for other lawsuits that attempt to link Jayne to Girardi’s alleged crimes.
“We expect other ‘aiding and abetting’ charges against Erika, which accuse her of participating in some kind of ‘fraud’, to fail for the same reason – they are untrue and not based on any evidence. real,” the lawsuit said. the lawyer has already told us.
Representatives for Jayne did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment on Jenkin’s donation and whether the “RHOBH” statistic has or plans to make one itself.
