What Erika Jayne spent on her credit cards will be heavily examined as part of the fraud investigation connected to her estranged husband Tom Girardi's bankruptcy case.

In legal papers obtained by Radar, the trustee in the case requested records from American Express in order to review what The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 50, spent money on in the years her former spouse was supposed to be paying his clients their settlement money.

Girardi's past clients alleged the ex-attorney never paid them millions in settlement funds. After the 82-year-old filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Jayne — who claims to have no knowledge of the misused funds — was sued by the trustee for $25 million, with Girardi's alleged victims claiming his firm used to pay the bills for the TV personality's company, EJ Global.

“The trustee’s review did reveal, however, substantial payments made by the Debtor to American Express,” the newly filed motion reads.

“While the Debtor’s bank statements contain general line item entries relating to the payments, no additional information was found in the Debtor’s records that sheds any light on the nature of the payments made, or if the Debtor received reasonably equivalent value in exchange for the payments," the documents continued.

The papers claim the Girardi & Keese law firm issued credit cards to multiple employees, as well as to the former Chicago star — who reportedly had two in her name.

The trustee reportedly alleged Jayne is, “beginning to unravel the numerous transactions which may be avoidable and recoverable for the benefit of creditors.”

The judge in the case has yet to make a decision on the trustee's request for the documents.

As OK! previously reported, the law firm Edelson — who worked alongside the former attorney to win money for the orphans and widows who lost loved ones in the Boeing plane crash — believe they have financial records that prove, “money that belonged to the surviving widows and orphans of the victims of that plane crash had, in fact, been used to make payments for Erika or her companies.”
