According to an insider, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is a “nervous wreck, and no wonder, since her world is crashing down around her.” Jayne’s taken a brutal public bashing in the wake of Hulu's The Housewife and the Hustler documentary, which details the shady financial dealings of her estranged husband, Tom Girardi — including allegations that the 82-year-old embezzled $20 million from his law firm to fund her lavish lifestyle.

“On top of that, she’s caught up in these bankruptcy proceedings against Tom," explains the insider, "and could go underwater financially."

As OK! previously reported, one month after Jayne filed for divorce from her estranged husband, the two were hit with allegations that they used their split to protect their assets after a class action lawsuit claimed that they embezzled money from a Boeing 737 airplane crash settlement fund. The performer has also been accused of refusing to turn over bank records related to Girardi's bankruptcy case — and now, her accountant, divorce lawyer and landlord have all been ordered by a judge to provide her financial records in court.

After the former couple went their seperate ways, the Pretty Mess author was forced to give up some of her most prized possessions, too. “I let go of my Lamborghini, I let go of my 16,000-square-foot home, I let go of my marriage, I let go of everything," Jayne admitted during an episode of the Bravo series. "I literally made a decision that I had to.”

Another thing Jayne had to say goodbye to? The luxurious $13 million Pasadena mansion she once shared with Girardi. However, her new digs — a Spanish-style home estimated to be worth $2.2 million and rents for a reported $7,500 per month — is hardly anything to cry over.

With all of the change surrounding her, Jayne's milestone birthday is certainly not what she imagined it would be. Thankfully, her fellow Housewives have rallied around her with tons of support. “She is so thankful for that. Erika’s determined to clear her name and come out on the other side, but the future looks pretty bleak," the insider adds. "She could never have imagined her life would be such a nightmare at the big 5-0!"
